Mashup: Jets yank Holmes after altercation

Not only did the Jets lose the Dolphins on Sunday to surrender any hope of making the playoffs, there was some internal trouble as receiver Santonio Holmes was benched for the final drive after being held without a catch all game and getting into a dispute with his teammates.

Holmes could be seen screaming in the huddle before leaving the field.

"There were guys in the huddle not happy with Santonio's demeanor throughout the game and in the two-minute drill," Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. "And they said something to him about it."

Explained left guard Matt Slauson: “It started off between Holmes and another guy. Then everybody came at each other. It was bad. It was breaking down. That’s how it goes when you’re not doing well and you’re in a must-win. Tempers get flared.”

Coach Rex Ryan said he didn't know why Holmes was not on the field, as it was offensive coordinator...

Pats will play Saturday night, Jan. 14

FOXBORO -- The NFL announced its playoff schedule Sunday night for the first two weekends of the playoffs, with the Patriots playing their AFC divisional round game on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 8 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. The game will be televised nationally on CBS. 

The Pats will play either the Bengals, Steelers or Broncos. If the Bengals beat the Texans in Houston (Saturday at 4:30 p.m.), the Patriots will get No. 6 seed Cincinnati. If the Texans win, the Patriots will host the winner of the fourth-seeded Broncos and the fifth-seeded Steelers. Despite winning four more games than the Broncos, the Steelers lost out on the AFC North to the 12-4 Ravens and will have to travel to Denver in the late game next Sunday afternoon. 

The early game on Jan. 8 features the NFC East champion Giants hosting the fifth-seeded Falcons. The red-hot Saints will have to play an extra game after finishing as the No. 3 seed behind the Packers and 49ers. The...

Celtics roll behind Rondo's triple double

The Celtics could have made things easier on themselves against the Wizards on Sunday, but they'll take the wins any way they can get them right now. The C's escaped Washington with a 94-86 victory that was a lot closer than it needed to be after they opened up a 17-point halftime lead.

Rajon Rondo recorded his first triple-double of the season with 18 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. He was dominant in the second half, helping the Celtics get through a rough stretch. Kevin Garnett also had his best game of the young season with 24 points and nine rebounds. Ray Allen added 13 points.

The Celtics are back in action on Monday night against the same Wizards at TD Garden, beginning a five-game homestand. It will be worth noting how they react to playing their second back-to-back of the season. Their first one ended in a terrible loss at New Orleans.

Gailey 'tired' of Stevie Johnson's act

FOXBORO -- Stevie Johnson was warned by Bills coach Chan Gailey not to cost the team again with a celebration penalty after his flag against the Jets on Nov. 27. True to his words, Gailey benched Johnson after his celebration following his first and only TD catch of the game in the first quarter. After hauling in an 18-yard TD from Ryan Fitzpatrick, Johnson lifted his jersey to reveal a T-shirt that read, "Happy New Year."

As was the case when he mocked Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the leg in November, the wide receiver picked up an excessive celebration penalty and the Bills were forced to kicked off from their 20.

"Well, what we said after we had an issue earlier in the season was, ‘If anybody got a penalty that hurt our football team for any kind of demonstration, that he was out that game and then we would decide about the next game.’ And so, if I say that, then I am going to do it, so he was out," Gailey...

Gronk: Belichick play-call 'means a lot'

FOXBORO -- With backup Brian Hoyer in at quarterback and the Patriots leading, 49-21, Bill Belichick called a play for Rob Gronkowski with under a minute remaining. The 22-yard reception along the left sideline gave Gronkowski the new NFL receiving record for tight ends, as Gronkowski finished with 1,327 yards for the season, 17 more than Jimmy Graham of the Saints, who finished his game with the Panthers several minutes earlier. 

"Maybe, ha, ha, ha," Gronkowski joked when asked if he and the Patriots knew about the record. "Yeah, obviously, why else would we call a play at the end when we could knee it. It's just kind of obvious. I'm not going to lie about it. Yes, we knew. It means a lot, that they're willing to do that and we can take a knee and make sure no one gets hurt or anything. It's just an honor to play here. That's why I love to playing here, great teammates, great coaches and everyone is just [about] the team here. Nothing...
