Bills receiver Stevie Johnson made fun of Jets counterpart Plaxico Burress by pretending to shoot himself in the leg during a first-half touchdown celebration Sunday. He then mocked the Jets' "flight" celebration and flopped on the ground, drawing a 15-yard penalty on the ensuing kickoff. It led to great field position for the Jets, and they cashed in with a touchdown en route to a 28-24 victory.
"I was just having fun, and part of having fun ended up being a penalty and a touchdown for the Jets," Johnson said. "It was a stupid decision by myself."
Johnson, who dropped a potential winning touchdown pass in the final minute, said his celebration wasn't meant as a personal knock on Burress, who served jail time for bringing a loaded gun to a nightclub.
Burress, who said he wasn't aware of Johnson's actions, didn't appear offended.
"I've seen worse, and I've heard worse. So, it doesn't bother me at all...
Tom Brady made an early morning appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday to recap Sunday's 38-20 rout of the Eagles, in which Brady threw for 361 yards and three touchdowns.
The Patriots got off to a slow start Sunday, as Brady was hit a few times and the Eagles took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. It was all New England after that.
"We settled into the game, as we seem to do as of late," Brady said. "I think when you play teams that have very good pass-rushers, sometimes it just takes a series or two to understand the speed they're playing at. Ultimately, we find the plays on the call sheet that we feel are protecting us the best. We've played some very good pass-rushing teams, from the Giants, to the Jets in their on way, to the Cowboys. We've played some really good pass-rushers. This was a team that really could get after the quarterback. They're up there, leading the league in sacks. … They were really into...
PHILADELPHIA -- For the second straight week, a Patriots offensive lineman left the locker room after the game in a protective walking boot. Sebastian Vollmer appeared to turn his right ankle late in the first half and was replaced by Nate Solder. Vollmer's injury was announced as a right foot/ankle during the game. He was listed as questionable but did not return for the rest of the game.
Last Monday, left tackle Matt Light left following the win over the Chiefs in a boot for his right foot but returned to practice on Wednesday and started Sunday in the 38-20 win over the Eagles.
The Patriots did not release any information following the game on Vollmer's foot injury. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots.
PHILADELPHIA -- After getting torched by former teammate Tom Brady for over 361 yards passing and three touchdowns, Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel spoke for a frustrated and depleted secondary that allowed big play after big play in New England's 38-20 win Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
"It's difficult," Samuel said when asked of defending Brady. "He's a great player. They had the running game working, and they had the passing game working. They were working on all cylinders. We couldn't figure anything out."
Wes Welker had a touchdown grab of 41 yards over the middle on a severely blown coverage by Philadelphia defensive backs. Just minutes earlier, the Eagles gave up a 63-yard catch-and-run to Deion Branch, setting up the BenJarvus Green-Ellis TD that put the Patriots ahead to stay.
The Eagles were playing without Dominique Rogers-Cromartie and a full-strength Nnamdi Asomugha, who was limited by a...
Syracuse University fired assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine Sunday, the same day a third man made allegations that Fine molested him.
"At the direction of Chancellor Cantor, Bernie Fine's employment with Syracuse University has been terminated, effective immediately," Kevin Quinn, the school's senior vice president for public affairs, said in a statement.
Fine, 65, was on paid administrative leave following accusations by two former ball boys. They have been joined by Zach Tomaselli, a 23-year-old from Lewiston, Maine, who told The Associated Press Sunday that Fine molested him in 2002. Tomaselli is facing sexual assault charges in Maine involving a 14-year-old boy, and his father said Tomaselli is lying about Fine. But Tomaselli insists he went on a road trip to Pittsburgh and was fondled by Fine in a hotel room.
Also on Sunday, ESPN played an audiotape of an October 2002 phone conversation between Bobby Davis, one of the...
