Pats fire opening salvo, smash Bengals

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker caught a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady, Gary Guyton returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown and Brandon Tate returned the opening kick of the second half 97 yards for a score as the Patriots coasted to a 38-24 win over the Bengals in the season opener at Gillette Stadium. 

 

The Patriots, who won their ninth straight home opener raced out to a 24-0 lead as Brady and the offense clicked on all cylinders, outgaining Cincinnati, 217-39, at one point. 

 

Brady finished 25-of-35 for 258 yards and three touchdowns. In addition to the two touchdowns, Welker had eight catches in his first official game since injuring his right knee on Jan. 3 against Houston and offseason reconstructive surgery. Rookie tight end Rob Gronkowski also recorded his first career TD, a 2-yard grab from Brady in the fourth quarter to salt the game away.

Seguin: 'Everything is finally here'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins top prospect Tyler Seguin took part in his first official practice of this year's training camp on Sunday. After voluntarily skating with Bob Essensa's goalie camp last week, he skated alongside Jamie Arniel and Jared Knight as Peter Chiarelli, Cam Neely and Claude Julien looked on.

 

"I'm very excited," said Seguin, the second overall pick in June's NHL draft. "I just know that everything is finally here and this is where all the big impressions are made. It's nice to be out there to be able to show my stuff."

 

The session was closed to the public, but Seguin has gotten plenty of attention in Boston since his selection. In addition to throwing out the first pitch at a Red Sox game on his first day in Boston, he saw the Ristuccia Arena stands packed for this summer's rookie development camp. Seguin, who racked up 106 points in 63 OHL games last year, doesn't mind the attention.

Chiarelli golfed with Savard last week
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Any concerns over how happy Marc Savard is after hearing his name in trade rumors all season were met with some positive news Sunday, where Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said the center was in town last week. Though he won't be back in Boston for Monday's golf tournament, Savard did hit the links recently by playing a round with Chiarelli himself. 

 

"He was in good spirits and [is in a] good frame of mind right now," Chiarelli said of their day together. 

 

Savard had said in August that he was "hurt" by the idea of the team considering him in a potential trade. He signed a seven-year, $28.5 million extension in December.

Seguin takes ice at rookie camp
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- With the likes of Peter Chiarelli, Cam Neely, and Claude Julien looking on from the stands, the Bruins began rookie camp Sunday morning. After skating with Bob Essensa's goalie camp last week, second overall pick Tyler Seguin took to the ice wearing his No. 19 (he wore 57 at rookie development camp this summer and many of the other prospects in attendance were sporting high numbers).

 

Seguin, believed to be able to help the Bruins as a center or wing this season, skated between Jamie Arniel and 32nd overall pick Jared Knight. Joe Colborne centered Lane MacDermid and Jordan Caron. The other two lines featured some guys rotating in. One consisted of Joe Pleckaitis, Tyler Randell, Max Sauve, and Ryan Spooner, with the Craig Cunningham, Yannick Riendeau, Antoine Roussel, and Walker Wintoneak skating on the other.

 

Defensemen Yury Alexandrov, Matt Bartkowski, Ryan Button, Matt Delahey, Ryan Donald, Alain Goulet,...
