Report: Pats would have had interest in Moss

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots would have been interested in re-signing wide receiver Randy Moss if he cleared through waivers and was not claimed by the Tennessee Titans. Schefter writes that the reason the Patriots didn't put in a waiver claim for Moss was that since they had the NFL's final waiver claim, they could simply let Moss pass through and re-sign him as a free agent, thereby not being obligated to play the balance of the $3.38 million the wideout was still owed.

Belichick: Browns 'clearly the better team'

Bill Belichick met with the media following the Patriots 34-14 defeat to the Browns in Cleveland, a loss that dropped the Patriots to 6-2 on the season. 

 

"They [Browns] did everything better than we did, in every single thing you can measure," said Belichick. "They were clearly the better team. They deserved to win, it was an outstanding performance. We didn't do the things we needed to do to win, or really be competitive, so that was the result of the game. Obviously we have got a lot of work to do."

 

Belichick was asked if this result was in part due to a lack of preparation.

 

"We didn't do a good job on anything, pick any subject you want," said Belichick. "It wasn't very good ... They did everything better than we did. I'm sure it was a lot of things, a lot of factors involved. They did a good job, played well across the board."

Brown out: Pats embarrassed in Cleveland

The Patriots fell behind 10-0 in the first four minutes of the game and never recovered in an ugly 34-14 upset loss to the Cleveland Browns that ended their five-game winning streak. Peyton Hillis ran 29 times for 184 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Browns rookie Colt McCoy, making just his third NFL start, managed a near-perfect game, completing 14-of-19 passes for 174 yards while scrambling 16 yards for a key third-quarter touchdown.

 

A visibly-frustrated Tom Brady was harassed all afternoon while being held to 19-of-36 passing for 224 yards and two touchdown passes to Aaron Hernandez, whose first score came when he made a leaping grab in the back of the end zone to cut the lead to 10-7. But the Browns, behind Hillis, scored 17 straight points and dominated the time of possession, 38:08 to 21:52.

Krejci out at least a week with concussion

The Bruins announced on Sunday that David Krejci is out for at least a week with a mild concussion after his head collided with the far center boards on a check by St. Louis center T.J. Oshie with 4:15 left in overtime on Saturday night at TD Garden. He was on the ice for a minute before getting to his knees and then his feet. He was helped off the ice by Zdeno Chara and Andrew Ference and then headed directly to the dressing room and did not return.

 

"Obviously, he got his bell rung there," Claude Julien said following the game. 

 

Krejci, who was knocked out of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Flyers last spring with a dislocated wrist, leads the team in assists (8) through 11 games and is tied for second with Milan Lucic in points (10), one behind Nathan Horton. 

 

Oshie defended the hit, which was not penalized. "Just two guys going at the puck, Oshie...

Tough luck: B's lose shootout, Krejci

Tyler Seguin scored a spectacular back-hander in the shootout but Patrice Bergeron and Michael Ryder both hit the post and Tuukka Rask allowed goals on his first two shots as the St. Louis Blues beat the Bruins, 2-1, Saturday night at TD Garden. 

 

Gregory Campbell's first goal as a Bruin tied the game with exactly seven minutes left in regulation. Halak was aiming for his NHL-leading fourth shutout in 10 games before Michael Ryder found Campbell for the equalizer. Rask stopped David Backes on a great chance in close two minutes after Campbell tied it. 

 

The worst part of the evening for the Bruins was the loss of top center David Krejci with 4:15 left in OT as he was checked into the far center boards by T.J. Oshie and had to be helped off the ice by Zdeno Chara and Andrew Ference. He spent nearly a minute on the ice before heading immediately to dressing room and did not return. Nathan Horton had two goals...
