Cruise control: Pats wake up, crush KC

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady connected for touchdown passes of 52 and 19 yards to Rob Gronkowski while Kyle Arrington had two interceptions to lead the Patriots to a 34-3 blowout win over the Chiefs Monday night at Gillette Stadium. As a result, the 7-3 Patriots, who scored 34 unanswered points, now lead the Bills and Jets by two games in the AFC East. 

The Patriots picked off Tyler Palko three times after Matt Cassel's replacement led the Chiefs down the field late in the first quarter as the visitors took a 3-0 lead on a 26-yard field goal by Ryan Succop. The Patriots again got great pressure on the quarterback, registering three more sacks. Mark Anderson led the way with 1.5 sacks. 

Brady, who finished 15-of-27 for 234 yards, was getting harrassed in the first 20 minutes of the game, sacked three times by a Chiefs defense that had just nine sacks this season entering the game. 

But Brady hit Gronkowski on a crossing pattern 25...

Bruins blank Habs for ninth straight win

The Bruins continued their remarkable run through November, as Andrew Ference scored at 15:41 of the first period and Tim Thomas made the single goal stand up, saving all 32 shots out of the net in a 1-0 victory in Montreal. The win gave the Bruins their ninth win in as many games this month, with the winning streak now within one of a 10-game winning streak in 2008-09.

With the win, the Bruins have now moved into first place in the Northeast Division. Thomas now has a three-game shutout streak on the road this month, having turned aside all 80 shots on net.

Williams, UMass run past BC

Sophomore point guard Chaz Williams had 16 points, five assists and three steals to lead UMass to a 82-46 victory over Boston College Monday night at Conte Forum.

Freddie Riley added 14 points for the Minutemen, who improved to 4-0.

Patrick Heckmann led BC (1-2) with 11 points, while Matt Humphrey netted 10.

The Minutemen forced the action at both ends, fast-breaking whenever they could and pressing to force the inexperienced Eagles into 23 turnovers and 31 percent shooting. UMass also controlled the boards, holding a 46-31 advantage.

BC held a 20-19 lead midway through the opening period, but UMass took the lead for good with 8:34 remaining on a Williams jumper and closed the period on an 18-6 run for a 37-26 lead at the break. BC never got within 10 points the rest of the way. UMass kept the game at a safe distance and then used a late 14-0 run -- fueled by seven points from Riley and five from Williams -- to end any hopes of a BC...

Alomar out; Lamont to meet owners

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, following managerial candidate Bobby Valentine's session with the media, said that the Red Sox now have three candidates in the running for the vacancy created when the team and Terry Francona parted ways in the days after the season: Valentine, Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont and Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo.

Lamont will be brought in to meet with team owners as a second-round candidate in the coming days. Lovullo has not yet been scheduled to return. Meanwhile, Cherington said that he told Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. over the weekend that he is no longer in the running for the job.

"I had a talk with Sandy this weekend and told him how much I think of him and that I think he’s going to be a really good major-league manager one day but that he wasn’t going to be the choice for us in 2012," said Cherington, who noted that the 2012 season will be Alomar's first as a coach who...

Chung, Faulk, McCourty all out vs. Chiefs

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have designated three linebackers as well as safety Patrick Chung and running back Kevin Faulk inactive for their Monday night game against the Chiefs.

Brandon Spikes (knee), Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness) all missed practice time this week with various ailments and will not play. Devin McCourty returned to practice on Saturday after injuring his right shoulder in the second quarter last week against the Jets. He is inactive. 

Patrick Chung will miss his second straight game with a foot injury he suffered late in the loss to the Giants on Nov. 6 at Gillette Stadium. He appeared to turn his right ankle and hasn't played since. He has practiced but has been kept out of the games.

Also inactive is veteran running back Kevin Faulk, who returned from the PUP list on Oct. 30 against the Steelers and was the leading rusher. But he was inactive the next week against the Giants and got little action...
