MINNEAPOLIS -- The New England Patriots took full advantage of Adrian Petersons absence, though he might not have made much of a difference. Cheap NHL Jerseys . Six sacks, four interceptions from Matt Cassel and a blocked field goal for a touchdown doomed the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, as the Patriots breezed to a 30-7 win, coach Bill Belichicks 200th. "I certainly never got into coaching expecting that to ever happen," Belichick said, "so it is very gratifying to reach that milestone. But what it really says is I had a lot of really good players." Tom Brady went 15 for 22 for 149 yards, one touchdown and no turnovers, and Cassels first start against his close friend and former mentor was a dud. Devin McCourty, Darrelle Revis, Logan Ryan and Dominique Easley all picked him off, setting up 17 points for the Patriots and prompting chants from the crowd for rookie Teddy Bridgewater. Cassel finished 19 for 36 for 202 yards. New England defensive end Chandler Jones had two sacks and returned a field goal he blocked for a touchdown right before halftime. This was Bradys 149th win as a starter, pushing him past John Elway into third place on the all-time list behind Brett Favre and Peyton Manning. "I dont think about those things too much, but Im glad we won and hopefully we can do better next week," Brady said. Matt Asiata had only 36 yards on 13 carries in place of Peterson, who was deactivated after being charged with child abuse Friday in Texas. The Patriots let Miami rush for 191 yards last week in a season-opening loss, but they held the Vikings to 54 yards on 19 attempts without Peterson. "I wouldve liked to have seen it against him, but at the same time we cant control that. Im very proud of our team and how we responded," Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. The pass-run ratio last week for the Patriots was 60-20 in a shaky loss at Miami, but they established a much better balance here. Stevan Ridley carried 25 times for 101 yards, and Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes wasnt able to keep up with Julian Edelman, who finished six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown. Under Belichick, the sixth coach to reach 200 NFL victories, the Patriots have consistently been able to avoid consecutive losses. The last time the Patriots lost the first two games of the season was 2001, when they went on to win their first of three Super Bowl titles. The Vikings started strong with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Cassel to a wide-open Asiata, followed by the defence forcing a three-and-out. But one bad throw by Bradys former backup shifted the momentum. Cassels heave to Jarius Wright hung in the air long enough for McCourty to snag it and return it 60 yards to the 1 yard line. Ridley scored two plays later. Revis had Greg Jennings smothered all game, and the five-time Pro Bowl pick grabbed an errant pass by Cassel early in the second quarter to set up Edelmans score. Then, after the Vikings set up a 48-yard kick by Blair Walsh that wouldve pulled them within seven points, Jones powered through the line, stretched his arms out and batted down the ball. He picked it up in stride and headed for the end zone, effectively quashing hope for a second-half comeback. Coach Mike Zimmer said Cassel would start next week at New Orleans. "I take full responsibility for not taking care of the football today," Cassel said. "Ive got to do a better job, and I will." That will be tougher without Peterson. "Its just part of life," Zimmer said, after dismissing several questions from reporters about Petersons absence and status. "Would we have liked to have him? Sure." NOTES: The Patriots beat the Vikings 31-7 on Oct. 30, 2006, their last visit to Minnesota. Theyre 8-4 in the series, with four wins in a row. ... Ryan, replacing injured starter Alfonzo Dennard, helped hold Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson to four catches for 56 yards. He was targeted seven times and had his TD streak stopped at six straight games. NHL Jerseys 2020 .com) - It may just be the right place and the right opponent for the Detroit Red Wings to snap their longest losing streak of the season. Authentic NHL Jerseys . The team said they will announce a corresponding roster move prior to their series opener on Tuesday night in Kansas City.NAPA, Calif. - Bae Sang-moon ran off five straight birdies early in the third round Saturday at the Frys.com Open, and that was a lot of fun.His big finish was more important.Right when it looked as though Bae would be lucky to keep the lead, he closed with three big putts — one for par, another for eagle, the last one for birdie — to finished off a 7-under 65 and turn a tight battle into a four-shot lead going into the final round at Silverado.Its a good score, Bae said. Four-shot lead makes me a little comfortable for Sunday, but I dont think about a win.He was at 16-under 200 for his first 54-hole lead on tour. Bae will play in the final round with PGA Tour rookie Zach Blair, who had a 69.The way the third round ended, anything can happen.The final three holes feature a pair of par 5s that can be reached in two by only the big hitters, sandwiched around a par 4 that played only 292 yards with the tees moved forward, with trees on left and an elevated green.They changed the entire dynamic of the final round.That stretch enabled Matt Kuchar and Brooks Koepka to get back into the hunter, but only briefly because of the great finish by Bae.The 28-year-old South Korean was on the verge of making a sloppy bogey on the par-5 16th hole when he pulled his second shot into a hazard, played out of the ditch and then muffed the chip with his fourth shot. The ball barely got onto the fringe. Bae made that 15-footer for par, and then hit the perfect drive on the 17th to just inside 6 feet for an eagle putt that gave him some breathing room.He capped it off with another 15-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th to seize control.Kuchar shot 31 on the back nine and played the last three holes in 3 under, just like Bae, only he got there differently. Kuchar birdied the 16th, and then hit driver to about 5 feet on the 17th for eagle and missed a short birdie attempt on the 18th.To be in contention on Sunday, golf gets fun. Golf gets exciting, Kuchar said after a 66. The first tournament of the year and having a chance on a golf course that I think is a lot of fun ... Im excited for tomorrow.He was tied at 11-under 205 with Koepka (67), Scott Langley (69) and Martin Laird (71).Koepka had a birdie-birdie-birdie finish — with his power, he only needed a 3-wood on the 17th to get on the greeen to 20 feet. NHL Jerseys. Today was kind of boring until the last three holes, Koepka said. Just stayed patient and it worked out.As much as the final few holes provide opportunity, they also can take away.Hideki Matsuyama of Japan was one shot out of the lead when he pulled his tee shot on the 17th into the trees, and had to play a running chip through the trees and to the back of the green into gnarly rough. He wound up with a bogey, and then dropped another critical shot on the 18th when he drove into a tough spot in the fairway bunker. Instead of staying close to Bae, his bogey-bogey finish dropped him to a 69 and he was six shots behind.The final stretch for Bae might not have meant as much if not for his hot start.Five birdies in a row was a lot of fun, he said. I read every break on the green. It was a really easy game.Starting with his tee shot into 3 feet on the par-3 second hole, Bae ran off five straight bogeys to build a three-shot lead. The streak ended with a three-putt bogey, and he didnt make another birdie until a 12-foot putt on the par-3 15th.But the final three holes gave him a cushion.Baes only victory on the PGA Tour was last year at the Byron Nelson Championship, and it meant so much to him that he got an apartment in the Dallas area so he could practice at the TPC Four Seasons.While he has control of the tournament, he wasnt sure how he would approach the final round.So many good players behind me, he said. PGA Tour is always competitive every day, so I dont play just safe sometimes and aggressive sometimes. I need a really, really good combination. I putted really good this week, so it will be good tomorrow, too.Hunter Mahan had a 68 and was with Matsuyama at 206, along with Retief Goosen (66) and David Lingmerth (70). Mahan is among four players in the field who were in the Ryder Cup in Scotland two weeks ago. Kuchar and Mahan had the best chance to win.The Frys.com Open is the opening event in the new PGA Tour season, though it sure doesnt feel that way to Mahan. Including the Ryder Cup, he has competed 10 times in the last 13 weeks and is looking forward to break.I feel like Im trying to finish this last one off and start the off-season and get some rest, he said. It feels weird. But Im here and Im committed to this week. ' ' '
