Law: Patriots may have already peaked


Law: Patriots may have already peaked

Troy Brown and Ty Law are guests on CSNNE's SportsNet Central with Kevin Walsh as they discuss the Patriots 23-16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

When you look around, it feels more like a loss. Of course, a win is a win, but the Patriots did not put in their best effort in Florida.

Brown and Law understand Brady's frustrations after the game and know that he'll be deep into the film and playbook to get things right heading into the playoffs.

But listen to this quote by Law in the beginning of the video:

"I think the Patriots may have peaked when they played Houston."

Do you agree with him?

Pedroia, Porcello lead Red Sox past Rays, clinch playoff spot


Pedroia, Porcello lead Red Sox past Rays, clinch playoff spot

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Dustin Pedroia hit his fourth career grand slam to help Rick Porcello get his major league-leading 22nd win, and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-4 Saturday night for their 10th consecutive win.

The win secures them a spot in the postseason

Pedroia stopped an 0-for-17 skid with a single in the sixth and gave Boston a 6-3 lead with a seventh-inning drive off Danny Farquhar.

Porcello (22-4) gave up three runs, eight hits and struck out nine over 6 1/3 innings. He just missed getting his 12th consecutive start of seven or more innings and three runs or fewer, which would have moved him past Cy Young (1904) and Pedro Martinez (2000) for the longest stretch during the same season in franchise history.

Craig Kimbrel, the fifth Boston reliever, reached 30 saves for the sixth straight season despite allowing Logan Forsythe's solo homer in the ninth.

Brad Miller hit a two-run double in a three-run second that put Tampa Bay up 3-1 and gave him 80 RBIs.

Tampa Bay threatened in the second but failed to score due to two nice defensive plays. Pedroia made a throw from just in front of the outfield grass at second base on Mikie Mahtook's grounder to get Corey Dickerson at the plate. Third baseman Brock Holt made a solid play along the line on Alexei Ramirez's grounder and threw him out at first to end the inning.
