Brandon, a linebacker who spent last year on injured reserve, was left unprotected by the Chargers and signed with Cleveland as a Plan B free agent.

Miami First Quarter Showboats STEVE YOUNG: The 49ers' quarterback, roasted by fans and media for not being Joe Montana, put on a Montanaesque exhibition against the upstart Lions. Young THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI In a game of giveaway, the Miami Dolphins and Sammie Smith fumbled their chance to upset the Houston Oilers. Smith coughed up the ball on a first-and-goal dive play at the 1-yard line Sunday, and Houston's Cris Dishman recovered in the end zone with 3:10 left to clinch a 17-13 victory. Miami's five turnovers also included rookie Darryll Lewis' interception he returned 33 yards untouched for the game's first touchdown. Surprisingly stout defense by the Dolphins limited Houston's run-and-shoot to one touchdown, partly by forcing four turnovers. "When it gets ugly, this team is known for losing," Oilers quarterback Warren Moon said. "But today we found a way to win. That's the mark of a good team. "Sometimes the defense has to carry you, and we've been waiting for that for a long time. Now we have a defense that can get it done." The Oilers improved to completed his first 16 passes en route to an 18-of-20 performance with two TD tosses.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO The San Francisco 49ers turned back the clock on the Detroit Lions on Sunday, returning to their their championship form and turning the Lions back into cubs. With Steve Young looking like Joe Montana in a perfect 13-for-13 first half and the defense shutting down Barry Sanders, the 49ers beat the Lions, 35-3. That ended the five-game winning streak of the upstart Lions, who fell into a tie with Chicago atop the NFC Central at 5-2 and looked every bit like the team that hasn't had a winning season since 1983. Sanders, who had had four straight 100-yard games, was limited to 26 yards in seven carries by a defense that allowed 39 points to Atlanta last week. The win improved San Francisco to 3-4, putting at least a temporary end to the squabbling and finger-pointing at the troubled four-time line as the Dolphins were driving for the go-ahead score. Last week, Smith fumbled on the goal line and Kansas City's Chris Martin returned it 100 yards for a touchdown. BARRY SANDERS: Detroit had ridden its star running back's shoulders to five straight victories, but the 49ers proved it may have been a fluke. Sanders, who had four straight 100-yard games, was held to 26 yards on seven carries.
