FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Skeptics pounced when a blowout loss left the New England Patriots with a 2-2 record.Quarterback Tom Brady was over the hill, they said. Maybe Bill Belichick wasnt a coaching genius after all.But the Patriots never had doubts. Not when they endured grueling practices to get back on track. And not when they trailed by 14 points twice in their most important game — so far — of the season.There was never any panic, special teams ace Matthew Slater said of their 35-31 divisional playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. I think we just turned to each other and said, Hey, man, weve come too far to surrender now. Even if no team in NFL history had won a playoff game after falling behind twice by at least 14 points.The stirring victory against a post-season nemesis was another step in the Patriots quest for a fourth Super Bowl title and their sixth appearance in that game in Bradys 13 seasons as a starter. The Patriots are in the AFC title game for the ninth time in those 13 years and for the fourth straight season.Theyll host Indianapolis next Sunday. The Colts advanced with a 24-13 win over the Denver Broncos in an AFC divisional game Sunday. The Patriots routed the Colts 42-20 on Nov. 16 at Indianapolis.Every team starts the year with great hope and we were one of those teams, Brady said, and were still standing.The Patriots (13-4) began the season with a 33-20 loss in Miami in which they let the Dolphins come back from a 20-10 halftime deficit. After two wins, they lost 41-14 in Kansas City after falling into a 27-0 hole that even they couldnt overcome.They began their comeback to a playoff berth with a 43-17 rout of Cincinnati, starting a 10-1 run that included consecutive 22-point wins over Denver and Indianapolis. They rested key players in their 17-9 loss to Buffalo in the finale after having clinched the top seed in the AFC.Then Baltimore came to town and scored touchdowns on its first two possessions in a stadium where it was 2-1 in the playoffs. The Patriots tied it at 14 then trailed 28-14 early in the third quarter.I dont think thats a formula to win a lot of playoff games, Belichick said of the 14-point deficits, but theyre a tough group and they never give up, no matter what the situation is.Last season the Patriots overcame double-digit halftime deficits for two victories — 27-17 over Miami after trailing 17-3 and 34-31 over Denver in overtime after trailing 24-0.Weve been in some games where it seemed like we were out of it and you just keep playing, safety Devin McCourty said. With our offence, they can always put points on the board.Even after the star quarterback makes what he called a terrible play.With the score 14-14 with just over a minute left in the first half, Brady threw an interception to Daryl Smith and the Ravens capitalized on Joe Flaccos 11-yard touchdown pass to Owen Daniels for a 21-14 halftime lead.Then Baltimore made it 28-14 on Flaccos 16-yard pass to Justin Forsett.Down 14 points through two stretches of the game and to be able to overcome that kind of obstacle, it speaks a lot about the character and the guys on this team, cornerback Kyle Arrington said Sunday.Brady made his own personal comeback after an incompletion on his first pass after Forsetts touchdown.He completed 17 of his remaining 22 passes. His last throw was a 23-yard touchdown to Brandon LaFell that gave the Patriots their only lead with just over five minutes left. It was Bradys 46th scoring pass, one more than previous NFL leader Joe Montana.Toms competitive, offensive lineman Ryan Wendell said, but he doesnt let anything get him down.College quarterback Julian Edelman also did his part, throwing a 51-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola that tied the game at 28 after taking a backward throw from BradyYouve got to unload everything youve got to win against a team like that, Edelman said.But the Patriots have plenty of room for improvement. Against Baltimore, they rushed for just 14 yards, the second fewest in team playoff history, gave up 428 yards and four touchdown passes and had a five-minute deficit in time of possession.Just a few more things to come back from.You know around here well come in and Bill will have everything laid out on what went wrong, McCourty said, and what we need to do better next game. Thatll never change.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Custom Jerseys Adidas . -- Scottie Wilbekin sat on the bench for the final minute, holding a bag of ice against his left knee.

The tournaments poster boy with the dyed-blonde fauxhawk fractured a vertebra in his back during Brazils 2-1 quarterfinal victory over Colombia on Friday. The injury has ruled the striker out of the rest of the competition, dealing a massive blow to the teams chances of finally winning a World Cup at home. Brazil advanced to the semifinals for the first time in 12 years, with the goals coming from defenders Thiago Silva and David Luiz. But the jubilation was quickly tempered when Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar broke his third vertebrae and is expected to be out for several weeks, ruling him out of Tuesdays semifinal match against Germany in Belo Horizonte. "Its a situation that leaves us in a difficult position for the match against Germany," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. "But we have great players and if I have to change something I will do it and we will be OK." The 22-year-old Neymar has been the focal point of both the Brazilian team and the entire World Cup, and he lived up to expectations with four goals in the first three matches. But he took a knee to the back late in the match against Colombia at the Arena Castelao in a collision with Juan Camilo Zuniga. The Brazilian star was crying in pain as he was carried off the field, and was taken to a private clinic. He has since been released. "He will not be in condition to play, he will need a few weeks to be fit again," said Lasmar, the team doctor. "He is very, very sad." The foul on Neymar came toward the end of one of the dirtiest games of the tournament as Brazil committed 31 fouls and Colombia had 23. Brazil will also be without Silva for Tuesdays match against Germany. The captain must sit out after getting his second yellow card of the tournament after impeding Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina. Brazil, which is trying to become the first host to win the World Cup since France in 1998, had been eliminated in the quartterfinals at the last two tournaments.dddddddddddd The "Selecao" lost to the Netherlands in the quarterfinals in 2010 and to France in 2006 after winning its fifth title in 2002. Back in 1950, Brazil needed only a draw in the final match to win the World Cup, but the team lost to Uruguay in a match known as the "Maracanazo." This time around, Brazil won its group and then beat Chile on penalties in the second round. On Friday against Colombia, Silva gave Brazil the lead in the seventh minute, scoring with his left knee after a corner from Neymar passed through the Colombian defence. He celebrated the goal by pointing to the emblem on his jersey and shouting, "This is Brazil, this is Brazil." Luiz added the second from a free kick in the 69th, side-footing a long-range shot into the top of the net. Colombia got one back in the 80th. James Rodriguez scored his tournament-leading sixth goal from the penalty spot after Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar brought down substitute Carlos Bacca inside the area. Rodriguez tried to control the pace of the match, but it was Brazil that created most of the scoring chances as Ospina had to make a series of saves in the first half alone. The Colombians tried to pressure after Rodriguezs late penalty, but Brazil held on with solid defending. Colombia, playing at the World Cup for the first time since 1998 and in the quarterfinals for the first time ever, had entered the match after scoring 11 goals, second only to the Netherlands. "After not playing in the World Cup for so long, we were able to show the value of the Colombian football and the talent of some of our players," said Colombia coach Jose Pekerman, an Argentine. "They showed great spirit and presence of mind. They came to play a great World Cup, not just to participate." There was a lot of talk about Rodriguez and Neymar before the match, but the 22-year-old forwards didnt really deliver in Fortaleza. Rodriguez scored the late penalty but was otherwise mostly ineffective, as was Neymar before he left on a stretcher. ' ' '
