Brady threw two touchdown passes in the final 61 seconds and New England recovered an onside kick to set up the comeback win. The Browns moved to the Patriots 40 with 1 second left, but Billy Cundiff missed a 58-yard field goal.
It was the kind of a game deserving of the burgeoning rivalry, a chippy affair very much in doubt until Frank Gore ripped off a run that saved some self-respect if not the season for the San Francisco 49ers.
Sometimes, it's just not your year. Sometimes, no matter how much you follow the NFL and how much knowledge you soak up, it's difficult to win a game in which you have so little control. I thought about this Sunday as I was bemoaning my fantasy fate.
Darrel Young and Stephen Bowen highlight the inactive list as the Redskins take on the 49ers on Monday Night Football.
San Francisco averaged 34.8 points per game during a five-game winning streak that lasted into its Nov. 3 bye week. Since returning from the time off, however, the 49ers have encountered a glaring inability to get into the end zone, losing first to the Carolina Panthers, 10-9, on Nov. 10 before falling, 23-20, on the road to the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday.
San Francisco comes into Monday night's matchup with the Redskins struggling a bit offensively, but that doesn't mean the 49ers are without talent.
During its last two games the Washington Redskins defense faced arguably the two best running backs in the NFL. Now comes another in Frank Gore.
Among the many offerings fantasy sports has given the world: A never-ending supply of things to complain about.
New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end.
With the great majority of fantasy drafts taking place in the next 10 days, consider this a public service. Here is my 10-Foot-Pole Team — eight players, in reverse order of rankings, I wouldn't (and you shouldn't) touch:
In the course of roughly 200 mock drafts over the past month (yeah, I know), a clear pattern has emerged. The top nine players in ESPN's overall rankings are running backs. The top 13 RBs have gone in the top 20 picks of roughly 195 of those 200 mock drafts. And unless you're in a league that really favors QBs, that's what you can expect in your real-life drafts.
The Baltimore Ravens carried off the Lombardi Trophy. Their beaten opponent has a better chance of doing it next season.
Power at the Superdome suddenly, oddly went out, putting the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday and interrupting a back-and-forth Super Bowl in which Joe Flacco's three touchdown passes and Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kickoff return gave the Baltimore Ravens a 22-point lead over the San Francisco 49ers that dwindled to 34-29 late in the fourth quarter.
A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
After a remarkable postseason run — with those speedy legs — by the tattooed play-caller, the Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty of flaws in handing Kaepernick and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday despite San Francisco's second-half rally.
Gore said before the game that the 49ers had to run the ball better to win, and took things into his own hands with 110 yards on the ground, including the big run that rescued San Francisco just when it looked as if Seattle would hold on to win.
"If we keep doing our thing and they keep doing their thing, no question," Gore said about the prospects of a January visit to Seattle.
