For the second consecutive week, the New England Patriots played like the 2007 squad. The Pats held veteran QB Kurt Warner to just 30 passing yards (186 total yards for the team) while racking up 514 yards of their own. Matt Cassell had another impressive outing, going 20-36 for 345 yards and 3 touchdowns. Randy Moss, Wess Welker, and Kevin Fault all caught TD’s, while LaMont Jordan had both of New England’s rushing TD’s.
The Patriots playoff hopes are still alive. If the Patriots can win their final game of the season, here are the playoff scenarios:
If the Ravens lose in week 17, the Patriots would take the AFC Wild Card.
If the Jets beat the Dolphins next week, the Patriots would win the hotly-contested AFC East.

David Krejci picked a good time to pick up his first NHL hat trick. His three goals were the difference in a very high-scoring game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs gave B’s tender Tim Thomas a lot of trouble. Though the Bruins were up 5-1 by the early 2nd period, thomas got rocked for 4 more goals in rapid succession. He was swapped out for batterymate Manny Fernandez, who stopped all 13 shots he faced.
With a goal in the second period, Phil Kessel not only hit the 100 career point mark, but he also extended his point streak to 16 games. The Bruins are now 9-1-0 in the last ten games, and are comfortably leading the Northeast division.
Marco Sturm, Marc Savard, and rookie Michael Ryder also contributed goals for Boston.

The Atlanta Hawks seemed to be in control when the 4th Quarter started last night. Kevin Garnett had other plans. KG was only 2-10 shooting from the floor in the first three quarters, but exploded with a dominant 5-5 fourth. In a low-scoring, high-defense game, the C’s managed to drop 29 on the Hawks in the final quarter to seal a 88-85 win. Many sports writers had this game picked out as the most possible streak-ender for the C’s – The Hawks held Boston winless in Atlanta last year in the playoffs.
The win puts the Celtics in a great position to make a run for not only the longest NBA winning streak, but also the best record in NBA history.

Despite losing Captain Paul Pierce to a minor knee injury in the 4th quarter, the Celtics pulled off their 15th consecutive win on Monday Night. Rajon Rondo had a ridiculous night, racking up a career-high 25 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists. Both Rondo and Kendrick Perkins were part of a late-game defensive stand that preserved the C’s slim lead, and eventually put the game out of reach. While the Big 3 are a huge part of the winning streak, the youth movement is a force to be reckoned with.
The Celtics play the next game Wednesday at Atlanta. Boston Celtics Tickets are available for all games now.
