Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who passed for 386 yards and four touchdowns but threw four interceptions in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Bills, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly conversation as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday.
"When you lose, and you lose the way that we lost, it's a tough one to swallow," Brady said. "It was a long flight home, and I'm sure it will be a long week. But we're the only people that can really do anything about it. We have a long football season ahead. We have a bunch of meaningful games. We'll figure out what we did wrong and try to do it better moving forward."
Chad Ochocinco dropped a sure touchdown pass and was criticized for poor route-running by CBS analyst Rich Gannon, but the receiver told reporters after the game that he was pleased with his progress. Brady was asked if he agreed that Ochocinco is starting to understand the offense better.
Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey interrupted his postgame media session at Yankee Stadium late Sunday night to express his disappointment that a member of the press sent him a text message before the game asking about "personal stuff." Shortly after the interview, the celebrity gossip website TMZ published a report indicating that Lackey filed for divorce last month.
“Let me tell you the truth. Thirty minutes before the game, I got a text message on my cellphone from one of you … somebody in the media, talking about personal stuff,” Lackey said after pitching six-plus innings in the Sox' 7-4, 14-inning victory that kept them a game up in the wild card race. “And I shouldn’t even be standing up here having to deal with it. I’m sitting here listening to music. I don’t know who got my phone number, but that’s over the line.”
According to the TMZ report, Lackey filed for divorce in...
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick injured his hand in Sunday's 29-16 loss to the Giants, and he isn't happy with the officials for failing to protect him. Said Vick: "I felt I got hit late. No flag. At some point something catastrophic is going to happen. Not to blame the refs, but more precautions should be taken. I'm on the ground all the time in the pocket."
Added Vick: "Every time I throw the ball, I'm on the ground. I get hit in the head. I don't know why I don't get the 15-yard flag like everybody else does. I'm not trying to blame the refs. I just want them to take notice."

NEW YORK -- With their lead in the wild card race having dwindled to just a half-game over the Rays, the Red Sox played like a team desperate for a victory. In what may go down as their most significant comeback victory of the year, the Sox snapped a four-game losing streak with a 7-4 win in 14 innings over the Yankees, with Jacoby Ellsbury crushing a three-run homer -- his third of Sunday's doubleheader -- to give the Sox their victory.
With runners on the corners and two outs, Ellsbury, who hit his 29th and 30th homers of the year in the day game, jumped on a 1-0 fastball from reliever Scott Proctor and launched it to deep right-center, delivering another memorable moment in his spectacular season. The blast was Ellsbury's third game-winning hit of the year in the ninth inning or later.
The victory allowed the Sox to depart for Baltimore, where they will play their final series of the regular season, armed with a one-game lead over Tampa Bay and...
