Dream scheme: Pats crush Eagles

PHILADELPHIA -- Wes Welker caught a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady while BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored twice on a pair of short touchdown runs as the Patriots erased an early deficit and cruised to a 38-20 win over the Eagles Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. Brady also hit Rob Gronkowski for a 24-yard TD pass over the middle in the fourth quarter as he finished 24-of-34 for 361 yards and three touchdowns. 

The Patriots fell behind quickly, 10-0, as several breakdowns in their secondary cost them dearly against Vince Young. The Eagles quarterback filling in for the injured Michael Vick, hit on completions of 22, 58 and 44 yards, twice beating Kyle Arrington. LeSean McCoy scored on a two-yard run off tackle on the first drive and Alex Henery drilled a 43-yard field goal to put the Eagles up early. 

But the Patriots defense stiffened, containing Young and LeSean McCoy while Brady and Welker got warmed up. Brady completed...

BC can't keep pace with New Mexico

Drew Gordon had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead New Mexico past Boston College, 75-57, in the fifth-place game of the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Matt Humphrey and Lonnie Jackson scored 12 points apiece for BC (2-4), while Patrick Heckmann netted 10.

The Lobos (4-2), who never trailed, jumped out a big lead early and led by 16 at the break, 41-25, after a Hugh Greenwood 3-pointer in the closing seconds. The lead was up to 22 points with 13:58 left after a Greenwood jumper. But Boston College did not quit, embarking on a 20-6 run and closing to within eight points with 4:44 remaining when Ryan Anderson tipped in a rebound to make it 62-54. New Mexico answered with a 7-0 run, with the last five from Gordon, to put the game away.

BC returns home to welcome Penn State, led by former Boston University coach Patrick Chambers, on Wednesday night.

Mallett completes Patriots inactives list

PHILADELPHIA -- The Patriots listed third quarterback Ryan Mallett as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Mallett has been inactive for all but one of 11 games so far in his rookie season. He was active in Week 3 against Buffalo. 

The six remaining inactive Patriots players were all announced Saturday night by the team, including receiver Chad Ochocinco, who didn't practice Friday with a bad hamstring. 

Also inactive are safety Patrick Chung (ankle), cornerback Devin McCourty (shoulder), linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Brandon Spikes (knee) and center Dan Connolly (groin). 

The Eagles have made quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) and receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder/hamstring) inactive for the game. Vince Young will start for the Eagles while cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who hyperextended his left knee in practice on Thursday, will be active and play for Philadelphia.

Vince Young to start for Eagles

PHILADELPHIA -- Quarterback Michael Vick and receiver Jeremy Maclin will not play today, Eagles team sources told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Additionally, the paper reports star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who hyperextended his left knee at Thursday’s practice, ran 40-yard sprints two hours before kickoff, will be a game-time decision.

Vince Young, who led a fourth-quarter, game-winning drive on Sunday night against the Eagles, will start in place of Vick at quarterback for the second straight game. Riley Cooper, who caught the game-winning catch from Young last Sunday, will start for Maclin, who is nursing shoulder and hamstring injuries.

Vick broke two ribs on Nov. 13 against the Cardinals and did not practice at all last week. He did increase his throwing on the side with each day and could be healthy enough to return for Thursday night...

Kelly, Thomas start new streak for B's

The Bruins started a new winning streak thanks in large part to three unanswered goals, notching a 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night at TD Garden. Leading the way was Chris Kelly, who notched a pair of goals in the second period.

The victory gives the B's 11 wins in their last 12 games, improving Claude Julien's team to 14-7-1. The Bruins have now won nine straight home games against the former Atlanta Thrashers organization.

After two first period goals from the Jets against Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara got things going for the B's by cutting the lead in half heading into the first intermission.

Kelly then took over in the second, netting a short-handed goal against Jets' goalie Ondrej Pavelec before claiming the game-winner off of assists from Benoit Pouliot and Rich Peverley. Brad Marchand provided insurance with an empty net goal.

The win put Thomas' record at 11-4-0 on the season, giving him eight straight...
