Edelman on record return: We 'hit the house'

FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman returned Brandon Fields' second-quarter punt 94 yards for a score, setting a new record for the longest punt return for a touchdown in Patriots history. The score put his team up, 24-0, before halftime and the Patriots went on to roll the Dolphins, 38-7, Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

 

"It was late in the half and we had a 'middle' return called," Edelman said. "The kicker, we knew we were going to get some chances this week with this punter because he was prone to out-kick his coverage. He gave us a shot. The middle of the field, our guys held them up real well and as a punt returner, you're supposed to make at least one guy miss and we were fortunate enough to do that and guys held on their blocks and we executed the play. It was a good play."

 

The return set the new team record, previously held by Mike Haynes when he returned a punt 89 yards for a TD in his...

Brady: 'I'm glad my night is not ruined'

Tom Brady put the finishing touches on a historic 2010 season on Sunday, extending his new standard for mistake-free football by a quarterback to 335 consecutive passes without an interception. After the game, Brady suggested that the fact that the milestone lasted through the final game of the regular season was important.

 

"Interceptions pretty much ruin my night," he said in his postgame press conference. "I'm glad my night is not ruined."

 

He deflected credit for the historic run, which dates to the team's Oct. 17 victory over the Ravens.

 

"I wasn't thinking about [the streak] much to tell you the truth," he said. "I've been very fortunate over the course of this season. When the defense drops a ball, if they could catch it, they'd be playing offense. That's why they're defensive players. I'm just trying to make good reads and good throws. Guys have done a...

Rondo will return against Raptors

After a last-minute change, Rajon Rondo will return to the Celtics starting lineup for their game against Toronto, Sunday night. Earlier indications were that Rondo would sit out his eighth consecutive game with an ankle injury, but reports from Toronto indicate that he will play. The Celtics were 4-3 without Rondo, who injured his ankle against the Knicks back on Dec. 15.

Belichick: 'Good to end season on this note'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick declared himself "proud" of the performance of his football team following its regular season-ending 38-7 domination of the Dolphins at Foxboro. He professed enthusiasm for the way that all three units performed.

 

"I give our team a lot of credit. I think they did a great job here today," said Belichick. "I thought they played well in all three phases of the game today. We had big plays on offense, defense, special teams. We had some guys step up and make big plays for us who hadn’t played a lot. Good to end the season on this note."

 

The Patriots finished the regular season with the best record (14-2) in the NFL, and Belichick became the first coach ever to guide four different teams to 14-win seasons. But with the playoffs now looming, the Pats coach suggested that he was ready to shift his focus beyond the regular season accomplishments.

Fish Fry: Pats cook Dolphins in finale

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady played into the third quarter and threw two touchdowns while Julian Edelman thrilled the Gillette Stadium crowd with a club-record 94-yard punt return for a touchdown just before halftime as the Patriots blew out the Dolphins, 38-7, in the season finale. The Patriots finish the season 14-2 and will have next weekend off until opening the playoffs at home in the AFC Divisional round in two weeks. 

 

Brady - who completed 10 of 16 for 199 yards - played the first five series and then came out in the middle of their sixth possession of the game. Hoyer played only three plays before being replaced by Brady following a timeout called by Hoyer. Brady then played the next two series, including a TD drive to open the third quarter before Hoyer returned to finish the game. Hoyer threw his first career TD pass when he hooked up with a diving Brandon Tate from 42 yards in the third quarter.
