Weekend Roundup

Here’s a roundup of Boston Sports from the weekend:
The Pats were in action yesterday taking on the Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago.  A huge snow storm was ripping through the Mid-West, leaving piles of snow all over the field.  Temperatures read in the 20s throughout the game, reaching single digits with the wind chill.   That did not stop the Patriots’ Offense (and Defense).  Tom Brady threw for 369 yards and 2 touchdowns in the 36-7 upheaval of the Bears.  Brady picked apart the 3 overall defense in the league, connecting with Deion Branch 8 times for 151 yards and a touchdown to end the first half.  Wes Welker added another 8 catches and 115 receiving yards.  The offense was clicking on all cylinders, despite the weather they were facing.
The defense stepped up in the win as well.  Bears’ QB Jay Cutler struggled, going 12-26 with 152 yards and 2 interceptions.  The Bears couldn’t seem to get anything going against this young Patriots defense.  Gary Guyton stepped up in place of suspended Brandon Spikes forcing fumbles and returning one for a touchdown.
This win was the 5 straight for the Patriots, who are owners of an 11-2 record sitting atop the AFC.  With the win, the Pats officially clinched a Playoff spot, although their work is far from done.  The Pats hold a 2 game advantage in the AFC East over the Jets, but only hold a game lead on Pittsburgh for home field advantage throughout the playoffs.  The Pats have three games remaining on their schedule.
The Pats’ will be in action again next Sunday night as they take on the Green Bay Packers at Gillette.  Aaron Rogers is questionable after sustaining his second concussion of the season in yesterday’s 7-3 loss to the Detroit Lions. 
 
 
The B’s also played host to the Philadelphia Flyers Saturday night.  Both teams seemed to be feeling each out in the first period, ending it in a 0-0 tie.  The action began to pick up in the second period, with the Flyers getting on the board first late in the second frame.  The B’s tied it up in the 3, off of Nathan Horton’s goal that beat Flyers’ goalie Brian Boucher glove side.  Both teams were held scoreless the rest of the way, so OT was needed to settle this game. 
In OT, the B’s were outshot 7-2, with Tim Thomas making great saves to keep the B’s in it.  With seconds remaining in overtime, Marc Savard turned the puck over in the neutral zone, leading the Flyers on an odd-man rush.  Flyers captain Mike Richards took the puck up on Thomas’ left hand side, held the puck, and beat Thomas, sneaking it in past the post. 
Thomas had 31 saves in the lost, recording only his second loss of the season.  Although the B’s lost, they increased their point streak to 6 games, while maintaining the 6 position in the East.  The B’s are only 2 points behind the Canadians for the division lead.  The B’s will be in action again Wednesday night as they travel north to Buffalo to take on the Sabres.  Pucks drops at 7:05.
 
 
The Celts were also in action Saturday as they took on the Bobcats.  In a rather uneventful game, Allen and Davis lead the scoring with 16 points apiece as they beat the Bobcats by 31 points.  This was the Celts 10 win in a row.  They will be travelling to New York to face the Knicks on Wednesday night, who also happen to be sporting an 8 game winning streak of their own.
