FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots seem focused and ready to host yet another AFC Championship Game this weekend at Gillette Stadium. On Wednesday, the team even got a reminder of exactly what they will be playing for on Sunday as the championship trophy was on display inside the stadium.
The Lamar Hunt Trophy, which is awarded to the AFC champion each year, was front and center during media access on Wednesday as Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo all answered questions with the coveted silver award sitting on a table just to their left.
None of them made direct reference to the award, but each of them discussed their burning desire to win another AFC crown and move onto a second consecutive Super Bowl.
Belichick was foremost among them, setting the precedent by mentioning his intentions for the week.
“We’re trying to get ready to win the AFC Championship Game,” Belichick said.
New England, of course, is the reigning AFC champions, so the trophy technically still be...

A.B. Well that pretty much shuts up all the Belichick-getting-ready-to-retire conspiracy theorists. 60 year old Belichick just laid out a near 1,000 yard receiver in practice, just days before the Patriots/Ravens AFC Championship game. I’ll take a coach participating...

The final minutes -- or just minute -- of each half will be at a premium when the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in the AFC Championship game. After jumping out to a pretty nice 17-3 lead with just over three minutes to go in the second quarter of a victory over the Houston Texans last week, the Patriots allowed the Texans to score 10 points inside the two...
In his Friday 10 Spot, ESPN’s Adam Schefter did a great job of breaking down how if it wasn’t for Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick, linebacker Ray Lewis wouldn’t have been drafted by the Ravens.
Belichick was the Browns’ head coach in 1995, when Cleveland traded a No. 1 pick to San Francisco in exchange for several picks. The 49ers used the 10th overall pick, which...
Bill Belichick is 18-7 in the postseason and 5-2 in his career against the Baltimore Ravens.
Bill Belichick has this nice habit. He coaches in Super Bowls.
John Harbaugh has established an impressive trend, too: winning playoff games.
When they face off Sunday for the second straight year in the AFC championship, Belichick's Patriots and Harbaugh's Ravens will offer further proof of the value of stability.
No coaching carousels in New England and Baltimore.

BOSTON — When Doc Rivers leaves the basketball arena or practice court, he passes straight into the realm of fandom. With the Celtics, Rivers is a rational individual who understands that winning and losing has everything to do with the gameplan and execution, and nothing to do with whether he wears his lucky tie or took the same route to work as he did the last time the Celtics...
