Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeared on the Dennis & Callahan show this morning to recount Sunday's ugly 20-17 overtime loss to the Broncos. As with past weeks, Brady continued to say the team needs to improve its communication and execution, starting with himself.
"Believe me, there's obviously after a game a lot of soul-searching," Brady said. "The only thing I can focus on is what I need to do better. And there's plenty of things I need to do better."
Brady addressed the critical play, an incomplete pass to an open Wes Welker on a key third down late in the game.
"Wes was thinking one thing and I'm thinking another," Brady said. "That's just the way it is. Wes and I need to be on the same page. I see what he was looking at, and he understands what I was looking at. That comes up over the course of a game. We should have hit the play. There's no doubt about...
Does Sunday rank as one of the worst days in Boston sports history? Actually, it's not even No. 1 this year. Check out Monday's Morning Mashup at our LEEInks blog to find out why this day comes in second. Plus, we'll try to cheer you up with a funny Red Sox-Yankees commercial and a trivia question about happier times in the Red Sox-Angels rivalry.
After the Red Sox were eliminated by the Angels with a 7-6 loss in Game 3 of the American League Division Series, outfielder Jason Bay addressed the possibility that he had played his last home game in Boston. The outfielder said that, since coming to the Sox at the trade deadline in 2008, his experience was singularly enjoyable in Boston. That fact made it somewhat difficult for him to contemplate whether he might end up in another city next season.
"It’s weird. Every year, whether it’s the postseason or regular season that ends, you kind of know where you’re going to be. This is uncharted for me. It’s a little uneasy," said Bay. "I don’t know whether it’s the last time I’ll be in here or not, but I guess I’m not the first guy to go through it."

Matt Prater's 41-yard field goal with 10:10 remaining in overtime lifted the Broncos over the Patriots, 20-17, at Invesco Field in Denver. The Broncos took the opening drive of overtime and march for the winning score. Tom Brady, who fell to 7-1 lifetime in overtime games, never had a chance to touch the ball in the extra period. Josh McDaniels beat his former boss, Bill Belichick, as the Broncos improved to 5-0 while the Patriots fell to 3-2. Belichick sought out McDaniels after the game but could not find him, so the two did not shake hands. The Patriots had leads of 10-0 and 17-7, but Denver came back with 10 second-half points, including a touchdown pass from Kyle Orton to Brandon Marshall with 5:21 left in the fourth quarter to tie the game.

Angels third baseman Chone Figgins watched from his defensive position as a door next to the 379 marker in center field opened during the bottom of the ninth inning, after the Angels had taken their 7-6 lead. Figgins said he had a conversation with Red Sox third base coach DeMarlo Hale. Said Figgins: "It's funny, we saw that door open, and the third base coach tells me, 'You know the ghosts just opened the door.' And I said, 'Nah, not this time.' I was like, 'Close that door so we can close all this. Get three outs and let's take it home.' " Indeed, the Angels had a 1-2-3 bottom of the ninth and eliminated the Red Sox in a three-game sweep.
