FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Dennis Maruk Jersey . - Tom Brady was upset that his New England Patriots hardly looked like a division champion in the first half.So upset that the slow-footed quarterback made a rare scramble for a first down that sparked them to a big third quarter and their sixth consecutive AFC East title Sunday.I wasnt in the best mood at that time, Brady said after a 41-13 win over the Miami Dolphins.He and his teammates were feeling better after the Patriots became the first team in NFL history with 11 division titles in 12 years. They missed only in 2008, when Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener and Miami won the AFC East.Everything starts with winning your division, Patriots safety Devin McCourty said in a locker room of happy players who looked forward to more raucous celebrations. We wanted to win big.Leading 14-13 at halftime, Brady threw two scoring passes in the third quarter and plodded for 17 yards, the third-longest run of his career, to set up LeGarrette Blounts 3-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half.Its good to go in there and finish them off like we did, Brady said.New England (11-3) scored on its four series of the third quarter and piled up 24 points, a team record for that period.Miami (7-7) saw its slim post-season hopes dwindle further as it gave up a touchdown on a blocked field goal and Ryan Tannehill threw two interceptions.Itll probably take a miracle to get into the playoffs, Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said.The Patriots started the season with a 33-20 loss in Miami that snapped their winning streak in openers at 10 games.Weve been waiting all season to get back and play this game, McCourty said.Now they can secure home-field advantage with wins in their remaining games against the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.The Patriots waited a while to take control Sunday.A horrendous final minute of the first half — three runs that gained 2 yards, a 32-yard punt return by Miamis Jarvis Landry and a 32-yard touchdown pass from Tannehill to Wallace with five seconds left — cut the Patriots lead to one point.We didnt play very well in the first half, New England coach Bill Belichick said. We just took some not very good football and made it worse and then were able to do things a lot better in the second half.On the first play of the second half, Brady hit Rob Gronkowski for a 34-yard gain down the middle.Youve got to start off with one play, Gronkowski said, and start clicking from there.The Patriots kept rolling with 10 points in 13 seconds.Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 35-yard field goal, giving him a team record 1,160 points, two more than Adam Vinatieri. After Patrick Chung intercepted Tannehills pass, Brady connected with Gronkowski for a 27-yard touchdown with 4:30 left in the third quarter.Just over three minutes later, New England boosted the lead to 38-13 on Bradys 6-yard pass to Julian Edelman. Gostkowski made it five straight scoring possessions with a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.We needed to find a way to stop their momentum, Miami linebacker Jason Trusnik said, or stop something, and we just didnt.Brady completed 21 of 35 passes for 287 yards and one interception. Tannehill was 29-for-47 for 346.The scoring began when Jamie Collins blocked Caleb Sturgis 41-yard field goal attempt on Miamis first possession and Kyle Arrington returned the ball 62 yards for a touchdown.Sturgis kicked the first of two field goals late in the first quarter before the Patriots capitalized on another turnover.Duron Harmon returned an interception 60 yards to the Miami 8 and Shane Vereen scored on a 3-yard run three plays later.Were a better team than last year, Tannehill said. Obviously, it doesnt feel like that right now.NOTES: The Patriots sixth consecutive division titles are one short of the NFL record since 1970 set by the Los Angeles Rams from 1973-79, according to STATSPASS. ...

"If we could score a six in every game, obviously I would be pretty excited," Jones said. "Its a long week but a short week. Its a pretty short round robin from what were used to so you dont want to get behind the eight ball early. T. J.

PITTSBURGH -- Pirates catcher Russell Martin didnt start Thursdays game. Rather, he ended it. Martin drew a bases-loaded walk off Tony Cingrani with two outs in the 12th inning and Pittsburgh beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 to avoid a three-game sweep. Cingranis first pitch buzzed in low around the ankles of Martin, who drew boos from those left in attendance for not letting the ball hit him to score the winning run. "I did wonder maybe if I wouldve got hit the game would be over," Martin said. "But when its at your feet you just react, and I just reacted." Later, Cingranis 3-1 pitch caught what Reds manager Bryan Price thought was a part of the strike zone established during the games proceedings. Instead, it was ball four. "Im not saying we would have won this game," Price said. "But it certainly didnt give us an opportunity to go out there and compete in the 13th." Cingrani (2-8) took the loss after he gave up a single to Gaby Sanchez, balked him to second, intentionally walked Josh Harrison and hit Clint Barmes with a pitch to load the bases. Martin entered the game in the 10th and wound up walking twice. Justin Wilson (2-0) retired the Reds in order in the top of the 12th. Devin Mesoraco hit a solo homer in the Reds ninth off Jason Grilli, who blew his fourth save in 15 chances this season. Grilli gave up a home run for the second time in three days, and has allowed four in 20 games this year. He gave up four homers in 54 appearances last season. Billy Hamilton led off the game with a double against Jeff Locke, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Joey Votto to put the Reds ahead 1-0. Votto doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jay Bruce for a 2-0 lead in the fourth. Locke settled down though and worked six innings in which he allowed two runs on six hits and a walk. Gregory Polanco opened the fourth with a single for Pittsburghs first runner against Homer Baileey and the Pirates later scored three times in the fifth. Tom Wilson Jersey. . With runners at the corners and Polanco at the plate, Bailey went through his pitching motion but did not release the ball and was called for a balk. ""It was one of those deals where youre thinking more about not falling than throwing the ball," Bailey said. "My back foot slipped out from me then I land on the side of my other the foot, so it was a circus all the way around. I was just trying not to fall backward." Pirates manager Clint Hurdle offered that the call may have helped his hitters gain some traction against Bailey after he started with three perfect frames. "I think that the balk call might have leaked in a little bit," Hurdle said. "Whether it rattled him, I dont know, hes a pro." Polanco, Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen followed with singles that scored two runs for a 3-2 Pittsburgh lead. "They hit some balls off the end of the bat, had some balls fall in," Bailey said. Price pulled Bailey in the sixth and as reliever Sam LeCure took his warmup pitches, heavy rain began to fall and there was a 35-minute delay. The Pirates twice put runners in scoring position after Mesoracos tying homer. McCutchen struck out looking at an offspeed offering from Aroldis Chapman in the ninth with runners at first and second. Marte struck out swinging in the 11th in the same situation. NOTES: Polancos single in the fourth extended his hitting streak to nine games, the longest by any Pirates player to begin a major league career. ... Barmes finished with his first four-hit game since May 30, 2009. ... RHP Charlie Morton (4-7, 3.09) opposes Cubs RHP Edwin Jackson (4-7, 5.11) on Friday afternoon as the Pirates open a three-game series at Wrigley Field. ...
