Last night's Patriot's game against the Ravens had as wild an ending as I have ever seen. Tom Brady led the Pats to a touchdown in the last minute of play, which isn't terribly unusual. However, it included a poorly timed time out by Baltimore, penalties (including a false start on the Pats that ended up working to their advantage), an official review of the winning touchdown pass and a Ravens player flinging the ref's yellow flag into the stands. As if that wasn't enough, Baltimore QB Kyle Boller threw up a Hail Mary with time running out, and it was caught three yards outside the end zone.

So the Pats prevailed 27-24 to go 12-0, but they could have easily lost that game. I guess you need some luck as well as skill to go undefeated, but I could go for another blowout after the last two weeks.

The Santana talks continue. There are reports that the Yankees are out (although I don't believe it) and Angels GM Tony Reagins says that his team hasn't even talked to the Twins. The latest deal floating around includes the Sox sending Jon Lester, Coco Crisp, Justin Masterson and Jed Lowrie to Minnesota. If the Sox can pull this off without giving up Ellsbury or Buchholz, it would be a incredible. Let's hope things work out.
