Mashup: Fan uses Taser at Jets game

Despite increased security at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands Sunday night because of the 9/11 anniversary and the appearance of former President George W. Bush, there was an altercation in the stands in which a man used a Taser gun to injure three people.

According to reports, 59-year-old Cowboys fan Leroy McKelvey and some friends in the upper deck refused to remove their hats or stand during the national anthem, and they would not be quiet during the playing of "Taps" and "Amazing Grace." That raised the ire of a Marine sitting at the end of the row. When the Marine refused to let McKelvey out of the row at halftime, McKelvey pulled a stun gun from his pocket and shocked the Marine, sending him tumbling down six rows.

McKelvey's son, a New York radio DJ who goes by the name Charlamagne Tha God, said his father is a devout Jehovah's Witness who doesn't believe in standing for the national anthem. "He's not a violent...

Red Sox to call up Junichi Tazawa

According to a major league source, the Red Sox will call up Junichi Tazawa prior to Tuesday's contest against the Toronto Blue Jays. Tazawa has not thrown a pitch in the major leagues in more than two years, having last pitched for the Red Sox in a big league contest on Sept. 4, 2009.

The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in April 2010 and missed all of last season. This season, he began the year in extended spring training before working to a 6.05 ERA in an assignment with High-A Salem. He was optioned to Double-A Portland in June, and began to regain both his stuff and command, with improved results following as he progressed up the minor league ladder. Tazawa had a 4.70 ERA, 27 strikeouts and seven walks in 23 innings in Portland, then produced a 2.25 ERA, 22 strikeouts and just three walks in 16 innings (regular season and playoffs) for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Now, he will join the Red Sox as a relief option for the final weeks of the...

Brady on record: 'A good night in that sense'

Like his head coach moments earlier, Tom Brady said his record-setting night was a total team effort. Brady completed 32-of-48 passes for a team-record and career-high 517 yards and four touchdowns in a 38-24 win over the Dolphins on a hot, humid Monday night at Sun Life Stadium. 

"Well, it was a good night in that sense," Brady said of the monster stat night. "I thought we executed pretty well at times. Look, it's a team sport, man. Those guys were catching the ball and making some great plays, Aaron [Hernandez], Gronk [Rob Gronkowski], Chad [Ochocinco], Deion [Branch], Wes. There were a lot of tough looks out there that we got and guys really stayed aware of the situations and we made enough plays to win and that's the goal.

"We were coming down here to win and this is always a tough place to play. Felt like that game was six hours long so we have a short week coming up. We have to get home and get to work on San Diego....

Belichick: 'No Rembrandt performance'

After a wild opening night 38-24 win in Miami that saw the two teams combined for over 900 passing yards, Patriots coach Bill Belichick summed it up as only he can. "Obviously a lot of big plays in the game and fortunately we made a few more than they did," he said. "We certainly have a long way to go. That was no Rembrandt performance but fortunately it was good enough."

Maybe not, but Belichick's quarterback Tom Brady painted a masterpiece. Brady completed 32-of-48 passes for a team-record 517 yards and four touchdowns in the win, including a 99-yard throw and catch to Wes Welker. "I think you talk about the whole team," Belichick said when asked about Brady. "Tom threw it well and the receivers caught it and we pass protected. It was no one-man band out there. We had a lot of contributions from everybody and that's what a good offensive team should do."

As for his defense, Belichick said, "We had...

Opening catch: Brady, Pats reel in Fish

Tom Brady opened 2011 with one of the greatest single-game performances in NFL history, throwing for a career-high and franchise-record 517 yards and four touchdowns as the Patriots handled the Dolphins, 38-24, in the season opener Monday night at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida. Brady capped his monumental night by hooking up with Wes Welker for a 99-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter, matching the 99-yard TD run by Tony Dorsett against the Vikings on Monday Night Football on Jan. 3, 1983 and Brett Favre's 99-yard pass to Robert Brooks on Sept. 11, 1995. It was the 13th 99-yard play in NFL history.

Brady finished 32-of-48 passing and his 517 yards shattered the previous Patriots single-game record of 426 held by Drew Bledsoe in 1994. Welker finished with eight catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski were big, combining for 13 catches and 189 yards and two touchdowns. Deion Branch finished with...
