son tournament blowouts his team suffered the past two years, against Maryland and Kansas.Not this year.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. . -- Beyoncé played at Gillette Stadium in June. Guns N Roses was here in July. Kenny Chesney performed on the Patriots field in August, and Bruce Springsteen sang in September.Everyone from Lionel Messi to Jacoby Brissett played at the home of the four-time Super Bowl champions over the past nine months.Everyone, that is, except Tom Brady.Taking the Foxborough field for the first time since last seasons playoffs and a full 21 months after he was sucked into the scandal known as Deflategate, Brady returned home to lead New England to a 35-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday .Once I got out there running around, it felt like football, said Brady, who completed 29 of 35 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Youre not going to win because youre emotional. But I think having your attitude right ... that allows you to be at your best for your teammates.And Bradys teammates were at their best for him.Rob Gronkowski caught seven passes for a career-high 162 yards, and James White had two touchdown receptions for New England. Linebacker Donta Hightower had a safety and was also involved in a fourth-and-1 stop to turn the Bengals away at the goal line.The Patriots (5-1) became the second team in the NFL to win its fifth game and remained a game ahead of Buffalo in the AFC East.Receiver Julian Edelman, who served as emergency quarterback during Bradys suspension, could barely contain his emotion before the game, when he slapped the quarterbacks hand and then sprinted out of the tunnel and the length of the field.It was good to get him home, Edelman said. It was an electric environment out there with Tom back.It had been a while for Brady, who last played in Foxborough in a divisional playoff victory over Kansas City on Jan. 16. The Patriots went on to lose to Denver in the AFC title game, and then Brady lost his lengthy court battle to have his Deflategate suspension overturned .The four-time Super Bowl champion missed both home exhibition games before serving his four-game ban in the regular season. The Patriots went 3-1 under backup Jimmy Garoppolo and, after he was injured, Brissett.Brady returned last week against the Browns, a 33-16 win in which Brady threw for 406 yards and three touchdowns. But that was in Cleveland.This was the game Patriots fans had been waiting nine months for.Those who where already in their seats erupted in a cheer when Bradys face was shown on the scoreboard in a pregame highlight video. Then again when he came out for warmups an hour before the kickoff. By the time Brady jogged out of the tunnel for the national anthem, the stadium was full, and deafening.Waving signs praising their quarterback -- and railing against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell -- the sold-out crowd of 66,829 chanted Bradys name a handful of times during the game . (They even did it once with the Patriots on offense; Brady flapped his arms to quiet them down.)As you see, he is their football team, Bengals defensive lineman Carlos Dunlap said. Hes the heart of the city; hes the heart of the football team.And thats not because of his looks or his supermodel wife -- or even because of the four NFL championship banners he has already helped hang in the stadium. Its because, as long as hes at quarterback they have a chance at another.After a pedestrian (for him) first half, completing 12 of 16 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown, Brady methodically picked apart the Bengals (2-4) in the second on three quick TD drives:-Five plays, 68 yards, 2 minutes, 5 seconds.-Four plays, 53 yards, 1:35.-Nine plays, 50 yards, 2:35.And what had been a 14-12 Cincinnati lead became a 35-17 victory.Brady denied that it took him time to get his emotions under control. After all, he has played in six Super Bowls and plenty of more important games than this one.I think I know how to get to that place where I need to be, he said. You only have so much energy, and at some point youve got to cut it loose when the moment is right. Its certainly an emotional environment for football.There were a lot of people there when we ran out, and they were there all game, so it was great. And it was great to win. Thats what we want to do. Our job is to come out here and to be focused on what we need to do and then make a bunch of good plays and then try to beat the opponent, and we figured out a way to do that.(Corrects to one-game lead in division)---Online: and . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. . Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz were sent to Toronto on Saturday as the Maple Leafs traded defenceman Jesse Blacker and draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks. Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley said he thinks his brother, former Duke guard Bobby Hurley, will root for the Rams against the No. 1 Blue Devils when the teams meet in the final of the Naismith Hall of Fame Tipoff in Uncasville, Conn., on Sunday.Thats a tough one. I mean, blood over Dukes family, Hurleys family -- I think hes with me though, because he talks to me more than K, Dan Hurley told ESPN after his No. 21 team survived an NCAA tournament game against No. 24 Cincinnati in the semifinal nightcap Saturday.Bobby Hurley, a point guard who helped Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski to back-to-back NCAA titles, is the coach at Arizona State. He wont be at the Mohegan Sun Casino Arena on Sunday, but the Hurley brothers dad, noted high school coach Bob Hurley Sr. is there watching Dan and his 4-0 Rams, who face Krzyzewski and his battered Blue Devils for the tournament crown.Once again, Rhode Island will have the crowd at its back -- these games being played 37 miles from its Kingston campus. The Rams face a Duke team (3-1) that came to Connecticut shorthanded and suffered more problems in Saturdays victory over Penn State.Were banged up more than any team Ive ever coached, Krzyzewski said after a hell of win over Penn State that saw Chase Jeter go down with an ankle injury while Grayson Allen hobbled around on a bad toe.Before the game and then during the game ... I mean, Amile (Jefferson) has been hurt this week, he has 15 rebounds and 16 points. Matt (Jones, 15 points) plays the last two ball games in the second half with four fouls. The veteran play of those two kids really saved us.Duke, which will likely fall out of the top spot in the poll because of a loss to Kansas on Tuesday, has three freshmen who havent even played yet because of injury.The three freshman wont play Sunday, Allen should and Jeter might as Krzyzewski tries for his 19th in-season title.Rhode Island had to overcome some adversity Saturday as well, losing point guard Jarvis Garrett to what looked like a scary injury in the first half. Garrett, hustling for a rebound, fell over the end line and appeared to hit his head on the knee of a cameraman. He was down for several minutes, got up on his feet but was taken from the court, his neck in a brace on a stretcher and sent to a hospital for evaluation.Players from both teams wished Garrett well as he was wheeled away, with the Rhode Island bench emptying to wish their teammate well -- and Garrett was able to text his coach from the hospital.Hes getting tests done. He has some type of neck injury, Hurley said. No idea in terms of a timetable or as to the severity of it.I thought our guys love for him and love for each other as brothers caused them to rise to the level and want it even more.Asked about reacting to losing a key player, Hurley pointed to a pair of in-season tournament blowouts his team suffered the past two years, against Maryland and Kansas.Not this year. Were fully loaded, he said.He said he thought Saturday was a sign. That the hype about our teams was probably real; based on the way weve grown, with our young players, and the adversity of last year. Cincinnatis a heck of a team, probably underrated.Saturday, the Rams missed their first nine 3-pointers before hitting eight of their last 12 with E.C. Matthews nailing a 3 from the right corner off a late out-of-bounds play.And now they get Duke.Special for the coach?I was coaching high school games seven years ago and driving vans around ... now were nationally ranked and playing Duke (Sunday) for a championship, Hurley said, calling Duke the premier program in the country that embodies everything you want in a college program.
