Tebow, Broncos to meet Patriots in Foxboro

Tim Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas on an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime to give the Broncos a 29-23 victory over the Steelers Sunday night. The Denver wins sets up an AFC divisional playoff showdown with the Patriots Saturday night (7:30) at Gillette Stadium. 

The meeting between the Patriots and the Broncos is a rematch of the teams' Dec. 18 game in Denver, which the Patriots won 41-23.

Pittsburgh had come back from a 13-point halftime deficit when Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger found Jerrico Cotchery for a 31-yard TD with 3:56 remaining in regulation.

After the Steelers' score, Denver's subsequent drive stalled at its 35-yard line, giving Pittsburgh the ball back at its 24 with just more than a minute remaining. The visitors' attempt at ending the game in regulation was snuffed out when the Broncos' Robert Ayers sacked Roethlisberger at the Steelers' 36 as time ran out.

The Steelers jumped out to a 6-...

Big Blue: Giants roll past Ryan, Falcons

Is it beginning to look a lot like the 2007-08 season for the Giants? After narrowly losing to the then-undefeated Packers in Week 13, the Giants finished the regular season winning three of their final four games, and they opened the playoffs with a resounding 24-2 victory over the Falcons on Sunday. It was the Giants' first playoff victory since beating the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

Eli Manning threw for 277 yards and three touchdowns, including a 72-yard hookup with wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (six catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns). The Giants also had a balanced running attack behind Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, who ran for 155 yards on 28 carries.

It was a rough day for the Falcons and former Boston College star Matt Ryan, who has lost all three playoff games in his four-year career. Ryan threw for 199 yards, but the Falcons' only points came via a second-quarter safety. The Giants scored 24 unanswered points.

Report: Marchand has phone hearing Monday
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Brad Marchand will have a phone hearing Monday with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, The Boston Globe reported Sunday.

Marchand was given a five-minute clipping major and a game misconduct for his hit on Canucks defenseman Sami Salo in the second period of Saturday's 4-3 loss to Vancouver. Salo will not play Sunday against the Panthers after waking up with a headache. 

Marchand, a repeat offender, was suspended for two games last season for elbowing R.J. Umberger. He was also given a $2,500 fine this season for slew-footing Matt Niskanen.

Valentine 'did backflips' after Beckett meeting

PENNSAUKEN, N.J. -- Speaking at new Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey's Bailey Bowl event at Pinsetter Bar & Bowl Saturday night, Sox manager Bobby Valentine discussed his recent meeting with pitcher Josh Beckett.

"It was real long," he said of the Jan. 1 get-together at Beckett's San Antonio-area ranch. "We missed the whole [Chiefs-Broncos] football game."

Asked if he was pleased with the outcome of the get-together, Valentine said, "I did backflips."

He then admitted to viewing Beckett in a different way than what he had been used to in previous encounters.

"I knew that look from walking in the clubhouse, or on game day when he'd sit on the bench before the game. You know that look? For 2 1/2 hours he came out, asking questions."

Valentine explained that many of the meetings he has had with Red Sox players have offered similar results.

"Everybody I've met -- and that's why I...
