Brady: O'Brien 'let me have it' for 'bad' pick

The Patriots' 34-27 win over the Redskins Sunday was full of tense moments, but none were more surprising than the scene late in the fourth quarter when, after quarterback Tom Brady threw an interception in the end zone, television cameras showed Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien engaged in a heated moment with Brady on the sidelines. Bill Belichick and other coaches had to step in to calm both sides down.

"I threw a bad interception, so he wasn't happy about it," Brady said of the argument. "There was probably a long line of coaches and players who were pretty pissed at me after that, but Billy got to me first. He let me have it. I deserved it."

The interception occurred with 6:37 remaining in the game and the Patriots leading, 34-27. The Patriot offense was at the 4-yard line on third-and-4 when Brady attempted to throw the ball to wide receiver Tiquan Underwood at the back of the end zone. Instead, Redskin...

Fight to finish: Pats barely hold off Skins

LANDOVER, Md. -- Rob Gronkowski set a new NFL record with two more touchdown receptions while nearly matching a franchise tight end record with 160 receiving yards as the Patriots survived a pourous day on defense to beat the Redskins, 34-27, Sunday at FedExField. Wes Welker set a career record with his ninth touchdown of the season for the Patriots, who improve to 10-3 on the season. The Patriots held off the Redskins on a first-and-goal when Santana Moss' TD was called back on offensive pass interference. On the next play, Jerod Mayo intercepted Grossman's pass at the Washington 7 when Moss bobbled it. 

Welker also caught seven passes for 86 yards, and has 100 catches for the season, joining Marvin Harrison and Jerry Rice as the only players in NFL history with at least four seasons of at least 100 receptions. 

The win was still a frustrating one for the Patriots, as Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien got into a heated...

Rondo sprains ankle, Pierce rests heel

WALTHAM -- Rajon Rondo sprained his right ankle during practice on Sunday when a teammate slid underneath his foot, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. The injury does not appear to be serious. "It’s not bad," Rivers said.

Paul Pierce also sat out practice for the second straight day with a right heel injury. "He didn’t practice but he’s getting better," Rivers said. "We just want to make sure."

The Celtics finished Sunday's session with only eight players as Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and draft picks JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore were not able to practice. Rivers said they were waiting for the league to finish paperwork on their deals.

It is believed that either Johnson or Moore could have been included in a sign-and-trade deal with Jermaine O'Neal for Hornets forward David West, but West ultimately signed a two-year contract with the Pacers instead. Rivers expects to have...

David West signs with Pacers

WALTHAM -- Free agent forward David West has signed a two-year deal with the Pacers worth $20 million after talks with the Celtics on a sign-and-trade deal didn't come to fruition. The Pacers had enough cap space to sign West outright. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the deal.

The Celtics had attempted to work out a deal involving Jermaine O'Neal, but TNT's David Aldridge reported that talks collapsed after New Orleans couldn't find a third team to take O'Neal, who practiced with the Celtics on Sunday.

Gronkowski bowls over Skins for NFL record

LANDOVER, Md. -- Just moments after making one of the most powerful runs in team history, Rob Gronkowski caught an 11-yard pass from Tom Brady for a first-quarter touchdown and a new NFL record. 

Gronkowski ran a seam route into the end zone and caught the ball for his 14th receiving touchdown, the most by a tight end in any one season in NFL history. Antonio Gates (2004) and Vernon Davis (2009) had the previous record at 13. 

One play before the record-breaking TD, Gronkowski caught a crossing route and fell to the ground untouchded. He got up and ran to the sideline, shaking off two would-be tacklers, including DeJon Gomes, whom Gronkowski flung off routinely at the Redskins 40. Gronkowski then rumbled down another 20 yards before being tripped up. He kept his balance long enough to get to the Redskins 11.
