Mashup: Dolphins RB says Jets 'laid down'

Following a week of trash-talking, mainly emanating from New York, the Jets went out and dropped a 30-9 decision to the Dolphins on an embarrassing afternoon for Gang Green.

"When you're playing against another team and they're running their mouth, you're going to go out and play harder. That's part of the game," Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said. "It feels good. We said during the week, if people are going to talk, we're going to go out there and just play harder."

Dolphins tailback Reggie Bush, who was in the middle of last week's back-and-forth, accusing the Jets of trying to hurt him in the teams' first meeting, had a 19-yard run in the first quarter Sunday before colliding with outspoken cornerback Antonio Cormartie near the sideline. Cromartie then head-butted Bush, earning a flag for unnecessary roughness.

"I ain't lose my composure," insisted Cromartie, who dislocated his pinkie on the play....

Scutaro leads Giants to World Series title

Former Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro's RBI single in the 10th inning lifted the Giants to a 4-3 win over the Tigers and their second World Series title in the last three seasons.

Scutaro delivered a two-out line drive against Detroit reliever Phil Coke that fell in front of center fielder Austin Jackson and scored Ryan Theriot from second. The San Francisco second baseman, MVP of the NLCS, finished the postseason 6-for-8 with runners in scoring position.

Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval was named World Series MVP after hitting .500 with three home runs.

Detroit, which entered Sunday night's showdown at Comerica Park having lost the first three games of the Series, tied the game in the sixth inning thanks to a Delmon Young solo home run.

The Tigers claimed a 2-1 lead in the third inning thanks to Miguel Cabrera's two-run homer off San Francisco starter Matt Cain. The Giants, however, jumped back on top in the sixth when...

Darko: Wrist pain isn't going to go away

Speaking to WEEI.com after the Celtics' open practice at TD Garden Sunday, center Darko Milicic explained that the pain in his right wrist most likely would be a lingering issue going forward and could only be truly healed with rest.

Milicic, who sat out the final four exhibition games due to the wrist ailment, said he was content with dealing with the discomfort while taping the wrist in order to continue playing. The 7-footer participated in the Celtics' entire practice Sunday, including portions of each of the intrasquad scrimmages.

"I have some pain and it's going to come back," he said. "The only way I'm going to heal is not doing anything. Not lifting or anything. But I just can't do it right now. I can't let it go. I have to keep lifting and working out. The pain is going to be there for some time, but it is what it is. The tape gives me some support and that will be on it as long as I feel some pain."

Welker on left ankle: 'We'll see'

Patriots receiver Wes Welker, who left Sunday's 45-7 win over the Rams in the fourth quarter due to a left ankle injury, told reporters in London that his foot "just kind of got stuck in the turf" after a 5-yard reception. He limped off the field and did not return to the game. 

Asked if he thought the ankle would be OK, he offered a somewhat optimistic assessment. 

"I think so," he told reporters. "We’ll see. We’ll evaluate it in the morning. It’s hard to tell right after it happens. We’ll evaluate it as the week goes on." 

Welker had six catches for 48 yards on Sunday, and he leads the team in both catches (60) and receiving yards (736) at the halfway point of the season, entering the bye week.

Gronk: TD tribute to 'little nutcracker dude'

It was a brilliantly funny tribute to a British institution. Rob Gronkowski caught the first of his two touchdown passes on the day in the second quarter as the Patriots took a 21-7 lead at Wembley Stadium. He caught the ball over the middle in the end zone and proceeded to march to his right and then turned on a dime before marching back to the left, raising his legs stiffly each time. He then finished it off in Gronk style with a thunderous spike.

"That little nutcracker dude that's guarding the house," Gronkowski said Sunday after the 45-7 laugher at Wembley Stadium. "I like how he just sits there and stays still. It's pretty cool."

The "dude" -- of course -- would be one of the Queen's Guards at Buckingham Palace. 

The inspiration came from a rookie. "I give that one credit to Chandler [Jones]," Gronkowski said. "He told me to do it."

Tom Brady was amused by the spike when...
