Eric Frede of "SportNet Central" wraps up a busy Sunday in which the Patriots fail to execute down the stretch and fall 24-23 to the Seahawks in Seattle.

For three-and-a-half quarters, it looked like the Pats would come away from the Pacific Northwest with a victory. The Seahawks rallied from a 13-point, fourth-quarter deficit and stunned New England.

The Patriots are now 3-3, just like everybody else in the AFC East. The Pats will try to regroup this Sunday in Foxboro against the rival Jets, who are coming off a victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Elsewhere, the Celtics are preparing for their exhibition game Monday night in Philadelphia against the new-look Sixers, who lost to the C's in the playoffs last year. The game is a 7 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet New England.

In the American League Championship Series, the Yankees, after having lost Derek Jeter to a broken ankle in the opener, now face a 0-2 series deficit after losing 3-0 to the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

The Tigers got the benefit of a blown call at second base. Television replays showed Detroit's Omar Infante was clearly out as he tried to dive back to the bag. Umpire Jeff Nelson called him safe. The call led to Yankees manager Joe Girardi's ejection from the game.
