Law, Brown worried about Patriots moving forward


Law, Brown worried about Patriots moving forward

Is it time to panic?

If you're Ty Law or Troy Brown, the answer is . . . yes!

Concern No. 1 seems to be injury-related. The team is banged up in the secondary, and now Devin McCourty is back at cornerback instead of safety where he had been playing better.

"Anytime you have to play Devin McCourty back at the cornerback position because you're banged up, you took a turn for the worse defensively," Law said. "He's at his best and he's going to help your team more when he's playing safety. Aqib Talib is down. We don't know the extent of the injury. He tried to go out there and play, but he didn't play well, and you've seen him limping around."

Brown is a little more optimistic than Law, so check out the video for his take.

Young, Vazquez homer for Red Sox in 9-2 win over Twins

BOSTON - Chris Young hit a three-run homer and Christian Vazquez homered for the first time in more than a year as the Boston Red Sox routed the Minnesota Twins 9-2 on Tuesday night in a game delayed twice by stormy weather.

Drew Pomeranz (7-4) pitched five innings, three after a 1 hour, 16 minute delay between the second and third as a thunderstorm slowly passed over Fenway Park. Despite the interruption, Pomeranz held the Twins to one unearned run and four hits, struck out seven and didn't walk a batter.

Dustin Pedroia had three hits and scored twice and Xander Bogaerts had two hits and scored twice for the Red Sox as they won consecutive games for the first time in nearly two weeks.

The two rain delays totaled 2:06.
