Belichick, Patriots move on from disputed call

(Continued)

The Panthers went ahead with 59 seconds remaining on Cam Newton’s 25-yard pass to Ted Ginn Jr.

Then Brady threw 11 passes to get the ball to the Carolina 18 with 3 seconds to go.

Enough time for one play — and one controversy.

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said Tuesday he would have been upset if his receiver had been held in that situation.

“No doubt about it,” he said, but “no matter how much people talk about it and rehash it, it’s not going to change.”

The Patriots know that.

“Any time you go on the road against a tough opponent, you’re going to have adversity. That call at the end of the game is a big call to make,” running back Stevan Ridley said. “We just have to move on.”
