Sports Report: Pats Beat Bills 20-13

Gillette Stadium


In the NFL on Monday Night Football, the New England Patriots remain one of the NFL's two unbeaten teams at 10 and 0 after beating Buffalo 20-13.

A federal appeals court in New York City has set a March date for oral arguments in the NFL's appeal of a ruling lifting New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension in the "Deflategate" controversy. The date ensures that no ruling will occur until well after the end of this football season.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is backing state Attorney General Maura Healey's proposed regulations for daily fantasy sports. Healey's plan would allow daily fantasy sports companies like FanDuel and Boston-based DraftKings to continue operating in Massachusetts, but with age and advertising restrictions, disclosure requirements and other new rules.

The NFL is investigating whether correct concussion protocol was followed for Rams quarterback Case Keenum in Sunday's loss at Baltimore.

The back of Keenum's helmet slammed into the ground. His hands immediately went toward his head and he struggled to get up, appearing staggered. But he stayed in the game and was later sacked, causing a fumble that led to the decisive Ravens field goal.

A league spokesman says a review has begun to see why Keenum wasn't removed from the game for the necessary evaluation as required.

Quarterback Brock Osweiler will get a second consecutive start for the Denver Broncos while Peyton Manning addresses his left foot injury.

Osweiler looked good in his first NFL start Sunday against Chicago, completing 20 of 27 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a victory over the Bears. It was the first turnover-free game of the season for the 8-2 Broncos.

Manning flew to Charlotte on Monday to meet with renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson about his torn plantar fascia.

The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-15 this season and 0-25 since last March after they coughed up a five-point lead in the last 2 ½ minutes of a 100-95 loss at Minnesota. The Sixers are three losses from the worst start in NBA history, and one loss from matching the league mark of 26 straight set by Cleveland in 2009-10 and tied by Philadelphia two seasons ago.


In the NHL, the Rangers blanked Nashville 3-0, St. Louis skated by Buffalo 2-1, Boston edged Toronto in a shootout 4-3, Los Angeles beat Florida 3-1, Colorado defeated Winnipeg 4-1, Philadelphia edged Carolina in overtime 3-2, and it was Washington over Edmonton 1-0.


In college men's basketball, Massachusetts beat Clemson 82-65 last night to advance to the championship game of the Main Event tournament at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Donte Clark and Trey Davis each scored 25 points. Jabarie Hinds had 21 for UMass, which never trailed after the first two minutes of the game. The Minutemen led by as many as 28 in the second half.

Providence beat NJIT 83-76 last night. Kris Dunn had 22 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and seven steals. Dunn was 6 of 14 from the field, but hit all nine of his free throws for Providence. Damon Lynn led NJIT with 24 points, and Rob Ukawuba had 20.

Syracuse has fired football coach Scott Shafer two days after the team's eighth straight loss. Shafer will coach the season finale against Boston College on Saturday. The 3-8 Orange started the season with three straight wins before going into a tailspin for the second consecutive year. Shafer's three year record is 13-23.

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott has apologized for the critical comments he made about play calling after Saturday's loss to Michigan State. He says it was the wrong time to make it known he would not be returning to school next season. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer says Elliott will not be disciplined and that he agreed the star junior should have carried the ball more in Saturday's loss. Elliott had 12 carries in the Buckeyes' 17-14 loss.


In women’s college basketball, No. 1 UConn crushed Kansas State 97-57. No. 23 Syracuse topped Morgan State 90-61.
