Brady: Belichick 'relentless' in pushing team

FOXBORO - Tom Brady said that, after the Patriots fell behind the Dolphins last week, Bill Belichick raged at the team in the halftime locker room.Asked byESPN if Belichick unloaded on the team after it fell behind Miami 17-0, Brady said, "He did and we deserved it. He's just relentless. He never lets up. He puts the pressure on the team week in and week out."Brady said it in a complimentary way. He knows the style works. He and Belichick have the record forwins by a coach-quarterback combo to prove it. "I think that's pretty cool," Brady said when asked about that record. "I've experienced a lot with him over the years. He's the only coach I've had in the pros, I've been very fortunate. He has high expectations for us. He treats me like I'm a rookie. He says, 'We can't complete a slip screen in two consecutive weeks. What are we doing?!' You don't want to hear that all the time when you're a 12-year veteran who's won a ton of games with him. But then you think, 'You know what? He's right.' And that's what I need to do better."

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
