Steel tough: Pats sack Pittsburgh

An inspired and fired-up Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and ran for another as the Patriots bounced back from their worst game of the of the year with one of their best in a 39-26 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field. Defensively, the Patriots harassed Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger all night, recording five sacks while James Sanders returned an interception 31 yards for a key touchdown in the fourth quarter. 

 

Brady, who passed the 300-yard plateau for the first time this season, completed 30-of-43 passes for 350 yards and his two TD passes. Brady yelled at his entire offensive unit during a second-quarter tirade and the offense struggling. Gronkowski became the first Patriots rookie ever with three touchdowns in a game. 

 

Steelers star receiver Hines Ward was knocked out of the game with a neck injury on a hit to the head by Sanders with 10 seconds left...

Hines Ward leaves with neck injury

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward left the field after being belted by Patriots safety James Sanders on the final play of the first quarter due to what his team described as a neck injury. Replays made it appear as if Ward was the victim of a helment-to-helment collision with Sanders. His return was described as questionable.

 

The play was initially ruled a catch, but after the Patriots challenged that ruling, it was determined an incompletion on instant replay. Ward, who has yet to catch a pass in Sunday night's game against the Patriots, owns the third longest streak of consecutive games with a catch in NFL history, having hauled in passes in 186 straight contests, a mark exceeded only by Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison. Ward entered the game with 30 catches for 375 yards on the season.

For Steelers, star linebacker James Harrison will play after being listed as questionable on Saturday with back spasms.

Safety Will Allen, RB Jonathan Dwyer, Chris Scott, LG Chris Kemoeatu and WR Antonio Brown.

Celtics finish road trip with overtime win

The Celtics completed their road trip with a 116-110 win over the Grizzlies Saturday night in Memphis. The C's out-scored the hosts 17-11 in the extra frame. The game went into overtime after Paul Pierce missed a contested jumper at the buzzer. Leading the C's were Paul Pierce (28 points) and Shaquille O'Neal and Kevin Garnett, who each had 18 points apiece. The Celtics head home with a 3-1 record on their four-game road swing. Rajon Rondo finished with 17 assists, while the Celtics shot 58 percent from the floor. It was the seventh time Rondo has had 15 or more assists, with the rest of the NBA notching just five combined.

Garden woes: Thomas suffers first loss
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas suffered his first loss of the season as the Senators defeated the Bruins, 2-0, at TD Garden on Saturday night behind a shutout from Brian Elliot. With the loss, Thomas is now 8-1-0 in 10 starts this season. 

 

Erik Karlsson scored for the Senators in the first period, getting the puck off a face-off won by Ottawa center Chris Kelly and firing a wrist shot past Tim Thomas. Daniel Alfredsson picked up his seventh goal of the season and made it 2-0 at 4:15 of the third when he took a pass from Milan Michalek and beat Thomas from the bottom of the circle on a bang-bang play. 

  

Patrice Bergeron nearly had the Bruins on the board in the second period with the B's on the power play. A high shot from Bergeron took a funny bounce off Elliot and nearly crossed the goal line. Blake Wheeler dove to tip it in, but accidentally got a glove on it, and the play was called no goal.
