London balling: Pats crush Rams

The Patriots scored touchdowns the first five times they had the ball and their defense overcame a big breakdown on the first drive of the game to record a 45-7 rout of the Rams Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London. Brandon Lloyd rebounded from a rough game against the Jets to grab a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady, who finished 23-of-35 for 304 yards and four touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski also caught a pair of touchdown passes from Brady and finished with eight catches and 146 yards.

The game didn't start out well as on the game's fifth play, Sam Bradford faked a play-action run to the left and rolled out to the right and fired a 50-yard strike over the top to Chris Givens, who beat Tavon Wilson and Devin McCourty on a play that was nearly identical to the play that the Seahawks used to beat the Patriots in Seattle on Oct. 14. 

But Brady and the Patriots offense responded immediately. The Patriots marched 78 yards in seven plays, capped...

Celtics 'can care less' about Heat rings

The last time Celtics fans saw their team on the TD Garden floor, they sent the C's to Miami with a "Let's go Celtics" chant during the waning minutes of an Eastern Conference finals Game 6 blowout loss to the Heat this past June. On Sunday, the C's welcomed fans back to the Garden for the team's annual open practice, and this time Celtics coach Doc Rivers began the chant.

"Beat the Heat," Rivers chanted. "All year long, beat the Heat."

His team will get its first chance at accomplishing that feat on Tuesday night, when they kick off the NBA season in Miami. Hoping to avoid Hurricane Sandy, the Celtics planned to fly a day early, so the wait for tipoff may seem even more like an eternity, especially since the Heat receive their NBA championship rings prior to the game.

"We played extremely well the night we got our ring," said Rivers. "We beat Cleveland in front of LeBron, so I think...

Sandy could extend Pats' stay in London

With the team playing late Sunday afternoon in London, the Patriots are making multiple travel contingency plans in advance of Hurricane Sandy, including staying in London through mid-week, according to an NFL Network report. 

Albert Breer reported Sunday that the Patriots are preparing for the possibility they may not be able to beat Hurricane Sandy and return to New England before the storm hits landfall since Heathrow Airport - where the team's charter plane is stationed - closes by British law at 11 p.m. London time. The Patriots play at 5 p.m. local time and may not make the window for returning home. 

If the team can't make it out and beat the storm home, the Patriots, who enter the bye week after the game, could wind up staying in London through Wednesday, depending on how hard the East Coast is hit by the storm.

Amendola, Mankins inactive for Rams-Pats

Rams star receiver Danny Amendola will not play Sunday as he is inactive for the game against the Patriots. The receiver suffered a serious clavicle injury against the Cardinals on Oct. 4. Amendola made the trip to London with the Rams and was limited in practice this week. He was officially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report before being ruled out Sunday during warmups. 

Meanwhile Patriots starting left guard Logan Mankins will miss his second straight game with a calf and hip injury. Donald Thomas, who started at left guard last week against the Jets, is expected to get the start again for the Patriots. 

The Patriots inactives include mostly players who were ruled out on Friday as Aaron Hernandez (ankle), Steve Gregory (hip), Patrick Chung (shoulder), Brandon Bolden (knee), Trevor Scott (hamstring), Tracy White (foot) and Ras-I Dowling (thigh). Dowling was immediately placed on the injured reserve on Friday and the team...

Bobby V: Didn't '[throw] David under the bus'

Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told the Boston Globe that his recent comments suggesting that slugger David Ortiz "decided not to play anymore" due to the team's fall from contention did not represent a controversial claim. 

"What I said was a statement of fact," Valentine told the Globe. "At that point, there was nothing for David to play for or to risk his career. I merely said what was true, that David stopped playing. Don’t know how that can be construed as throwing David under the bus. I never did that. If there was something at stake I knew he would push through, but after the trade, it was clearly a lost season, so why risk it?"

Earlier last week, Valentine said on NBC Sports' "Costas Tonight" that Ortiz "came back after spending about six weeks on...
