FOXBOROUGH, MA (AP) -- Tom Brady became the winningest quarterback in postseason play, throwing for three touchdowns Sunday to beat Houston 41-28 and lift the New England Patriots into the AFC championship game. Brady got his 17th victory, surpassing his childhood hero, Joe Montana, by throwing for 344 yards. Seldom-used running back Shane Vereen scored three times, twice on receptions. If Brady can lead the Patriots (13-4) past Baltimore (12-6) in next Sunday's conference title game, then win the Super Bowl, he'll equal the 49ers' Hall of Famer for NFL championships. The Patriots and Ravens are meeting for the AFC title for the second straight year. Baltimore, which stunned top-seeded Denver in double overtime Saturday, lost 23-20 at Gillette Stadium last January. Houston (13-5) performed to beat Houston 41-28 and lift the New England Patriots into the AFC championship game. Brady got his 17th victory, surpassing his childhood hero, Joe Montana, by throwing for 344 yards. Seldom-used running back Shane Vereen scored three times, twice on receptions.

The Patriots and Ravens are meeting for the AFC title for the second straight year. Baltimore, which stunned top-seeded Denver in double overtime Saturday, lost 23-20 at Gillette Stadium last January. Houston (13-5) performed far better than in a 42-14 loss here last month. But the Texans couldn't slow down Brady. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The Falcons (14-3) appeared ready to allow the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in NFL playoff history when Marshawn Lynch scored on a 2-yard run with 31 seconds left. But Matt Ryan completed two long passes after the kickoff, setting up Bryant's winning kick and sending the Falcons to the NFC championship game for only the third time in franchise history. They will host the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday. Wilson passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, but it wasn't enough for the Seahawks (12-6). ___ Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

As the conference did in its previous expansion schedule model in 2006, this year's schedule of league football opponents is entirely a new scheduling model that is not based off the previous schedule. The complete 2013 ACC Football Schedule, including specific dates, is expected to be announced in early February. Each ACC team will play eight conference games in football (four home and four away), six games within their division (three home, three away) and two games (one home, one away) with crossover opponents from the opposite division. In 2013, all Atlantic Division members will host their primary crossover opponent while Coastal Division members will host a rotating crossover opponent. Each school's primary crossover opponent does not change, while its rotating crossover opponent will change each year. With the exception of Pitt and Syracuse, all schools will be playing their rotating crossover opponent for the first time since 2009. Pitt joins the Coastal Division while Syracuse will compete in the Atlantic Division and the two schools will play each other annually as primary crossovers. The other primary crossovers will stay consistent. The primary crossovers are: Atlantic Division Coastal Division Boston College Virginia Tech Clemson Georgia Tech Florida State Miami Maryland Virginia NC State North Carolina Syracuse Pitt Wake Forest Duke Also, as in 2005, the new model of conference opponents will result in repeat site games in order to balance home and away schedules. This year, taking into account the existing schedule, there will be a total of just six repeat site games, all limited to the 2013 football season. The games with opponents traveling to the same site as in 2012 are: Duke at Wake Forest; Duke at Virginia Tech; Miami at Duke; Georgia Tech at Clemson; Virginia Tech at Boston College; and Virginia Tech at Miami. Though the conference is releasing just the 2013 ACC opponents at this time, this schedule model may be used as the basis for a full, multi-year schedule in the future. Below are the 2013 conference football opponents for each ACC school. The games are listed with divisional games first in alphabetical order, followed by primary crossover and then rotating crossover games. ----------- WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -- Led by senior sharpshooter Hollie Mershon, Colonial Athletic Association co-leader Drexel used its long distance prowess to down host UNCW, 64-51, in a women’s basketball tilt Sunday at Trask Coliseum. The Dragons won their third in a row to improve to 10-4 overall and remain unbeaten at 3-0 in the CAA with the road win. UNCW, playing its fourth home game in five outings, fell to 2-12 and 1-2. Mershon poured in a season-high 26 points to lead all scorers on the day. The 5-10 shooter matched her season high and scored the most points by an opponent this season against the Seahawks, connecting on 10-of-14 from the floor, including 6-of-8 behind the arc. Senior forward Nicki Jones also contributed 12 points and five rebounds for Denise Dillon’s club. Drexel wound up connecting on 9-of-23 from three-point range, with Mershon hitting several of her six trifectas at critical junctures in the contest. Senior forward Karneshia Garrett was the lone player in double digits for UNCW with 11 points, while senior forward Chelsea McGowen added five points and a team-high 11 rebounds. Drexel stretched a 33-26 halftime lead to 38-28 early in the second half before the Seahawks cut into the margin. Junior guard Jessica Freeman connected on a baby jumper in the paint to help UNCW close within 38-34 at 16:39. But Drexel freshman guard Meghan Creighton strung together four points to jumpstart a 10-2 run to give the Dragons some breathing room. Jones later scored back-to-back buckets to close out the spurt and her basket in the paint at 11:23 put Drexel out front, 48-36, at 11:23. A long trey by Freeman on the right side chopped the deficit to six points, 53-47, with just over five minutes remaining, but Mershon sank her sixth three-pointer of the contest and added a layup on the left side to begin an 11-1 rally that stalled UNCW’s comeback bid. Drexel posted its largest lead of the game with one minute remaining when Renee Johnson-Allen made a pair of free throws to make the score 64-59. It was all Mershon in the first half as the senior from Malvern, Pa., went 5-of-7 from the field and 4-of-6 from deep for 14 points to give the Dragons a 33-26 lead at intermission. Drexel shot 53.8 percent in the opening period, including 5-of-10 from long distance, to take a seven-point advantage into the final period. Both teams opened the contest 1-of-5 from the floor before the Dragons built a working margin behind the play of Mershon and Fiona Flanagan. Trailing 8-6, Drexel took the lead on a triple by Mershon at 13:46 and the senior shooter’s third trifecta of the half staked the Dragons to a 24-16 advantage at 7:26. The Seahawks wrap up a two-game homestand on Thursday (Jan. 17) with a 7 p.m. matchup against Old Dominion at Trask Coliseum. The Dragons return to Philadelphia to entertain Hofstra on Thursday at 7 p.m. GAME NOTES: The Seahawks donned new teal-colored shoes for the conference battle…Drexel owns an 11-8 advantage in the series, including two straight over UNCW…The Seahawks are 1-5 at home this year…Drexel won the rebounding battle, 32-30…UNCW’s last lead in the game came with 14:49 left in the first half…UNCW’s three starting guards went a combined 5-of-21 from the field…Freeman and Tawanna Lee each added nine points…Drexel finished with just five turnovers…McGowen played 35 minutes without a turnover…Flanagan led all players with four assists…Drexel attempted 15 more field goals than UNCW. ---------------
