Cincinnati hopes to quell Kansas City's Blackledge CINCINNATI (AP) — As a former backup quarterback in the National Football League, Cincinnati Bengals Coach Sam Wyche knows it's tough to step into the starting lineup and perform like it's just another day's work. That's why Wyche was particularly impressed by the pinch-hitting job of Kansas City quarterback Todd Blackledge, who directed the Chiefs to a stunning 37-27 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in his first regular-season start last Sunday. That's also why Wyche is warning his defense about the importance of stopping Blackledge if the Bengals are to come away with their first victory of the season Sunday against the Chiefs in Riverfront Stadium. "I think it's a lot easier to come into a ballgame off the bench as a backup player," Wyche said. "The juices are flowing, the pressure's not there, the team seems to rally around you a little bit more knowing you didn't get as much practice time. I think it's a tougher situation to be a guy who is not your starter, but having to start a game and knowing it all week long. "And he (Blackledge) responded. So he's going to be as big a threat to us this week. They throw the ball well." The second-year quarterback took over when Bill Kenney broke his thumb in the final preseason game. He completed 19 of 36 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score on the Steelers' home field. "He played as well as he could have played," said Chiefs Coach John Mackovic. "It was a professional performance. He was under a lot of pressure, and he not only withstood it, but he made some plays." Wyche figures that's what the Bengals lacked in their season-opening 20-17 loss at Denver — they failed to make important plays under pressure. The Bengals rolled up 433 net yards on offense in Wyche's head coaching debut, but had trouble in scoring range. "Like most NFL games, it hinged on two or three plays," Wyche said. "Very few of them are wipeouts. If we could have done one or two things differently on one or two plays, then we'd be thinking we were just super people and. they (the Broncos) would be lamenting the one or two plays that I'm lamenting now." Quarterback Ken Anderson, under pressure from the Broncos' defense, completed 25 of 49 passes for 353 yards with one interception and no touchdowns in the Bengals' season opener. Ten of his tosses went to wide receiver Cris Collinsworth, who rolled up 141 yards in receptions. The Bengals and Chiefs are 7-7 in their series, with Kansas City taking three out of their last four games, including a 20-16 victory at Kansas City last year. The Salina Journal Sunday, September 9,1984 Page 14 Patriots face Miami, jinx Sooners stymie Stanford, 19-7 NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The main attraction for Oklahoma fans was the debut of the Sooners' new offense, but it was the young Oklahoma defense which drew the most praise from Coach Barry Switzer. "The defense pretty much controlled the football game," Switzer said after his Sooners beat Stanford, 19-7, in the college football opener for both teams Saturday. "(John) Paye is an excellent quarterback and they have fine receivers, but our defense did a real good job." After Paye completed four of five passes and drove the Cardinal 71 yards for a touchdown on the first drive of the game, the Oklahoma defense adjusted and held the talented sophomore in check. The Sooners used five and six defensive backs at times and Switzer said "I thought we should have had a couple of touchdowns with the field position we had.

Stanford Coach Jack Elway agreed. "They have a helluva defense," said Elway, who was making his coaching debut at Stanford. "It made us feel inept offensively. They are an outstanding defensive team. We couldn't seem to do anything on offense." The Sooners' new offense, based on the wishbone but with various sets included, allowed Oklahoma to finish with 348 total yards. But there were some breakdowns. "We've got to play the percentages offensively," Switzer said. "I think Danny (Bradley) will learn that." Bradley, a 5-foot-10 senior quarterback, is allowed to change the play at the line of scrimmage and had to call time out twice in one drive at the start of the third period. Still, Bradley finished with 100 yards rushing and completed six of 14 passes for 84 yards. "I've still got a lot of learning to do," Bradley said. "But we've got a lot of confidence now." Long fires Iowa past Iowa State, 59-21 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Chuck Long threw four touchdown passes and Ronnie Harmon dashed 86 yards for another score as 10th- ranked Iowa, capitalizing on numerous Iowa State turnovers, rolled to a 59-21 non-conference victory Saturday in the season opener for both teams. Iowa's veteran defense intercepted five passes and recovered three fumbles and the Hawkeyes turned six of the turnovers into scores. So important were the turnovers that Iowa, which led 42-7 at halftime, was able to build a 35-0 lead late in the first half despite having only six first downs and minus three yards rushing. After Iowa struggled for much of the first quarter against an Iowa State defense that sometimes employed an 11-man front, defensive end Dave Strobel got the Hawkeyes on the board by intercepting an Alan Hood pass and returning it 38 Russell wins tennis tourney HAYS — Kristy Line won the No. 1 singles' title to lead Russell to the Hays Invitational Tennis Tournament crown here Friday.

Long threw scoring passes of 15 yards to Bill Happel, 63 yards to Robert Smith and 3 yards to Jonathan Hayes in the first half, then teamed up with Harmon on a 68- yard screen pass for a third-quarter touchdown. Harmon, a former wide receiver now playing tailback, broke loose on his 86-yard run — the fifth longest in Iowa history — with 26 seconds left in the first half and Owen Gill scored on a 3-yard run late in the half. Tom Nichol kicked a 37- yard third-quarter field goal and No. 3 quarterback Kevin Harmon, Ronnie's brother, threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Marshall Cotton in the fourth quarter to complete the Iowa scoring. Interceptions set up two of Long's touchdown passes, Gill's scoring run and Nichol's field goal, and a fumble recovery paved the way for Long's third TD pass. Long finished with 10 completions in 17 attempts for 217 yards.

Jim Nance their leading rusher and Gino Cappelletti was catching passes and kicking field goals. It was Nov. 27, 19GG, they were the Boston Patriots of the American Football League and they beat the Dolphins, 20-14. The Pats, 0-16 in Miami since then, will try again today to beat the Orange Bowl jinx in a game they hope will give them credibility as a challenger to the Dolphins in the American Football Conference's Eastern Division. "If we win," New England Coach Ron Meyer says, "it will probably be as big a lift as this franchise lias ever had." "It's an important game to both of us," Miami's Don Simla agrees. "When you're competing against a team you consider to be your closest competition, it makes it more important to you." Both the Patriots and the Dolphins are 1-0, but the Dolphins were far more impressive in their opener, romping over the Washington Redskins, 35-17, behind Dan Marino's five touchdown passes. New England opened a 21-0 lead over the Buffalo Bills, then hung on for a 2117 victory. Elsewhere in the National Football League today, Buffalo is at St. Louis, Dallas at the New York Giants, Denver at Chicago, Detroit at Atlanta, Kansas-City at Cincinnati, Minnesota at Philadelphia, Tampa Bay at New Orleans, Cleveland at the Los Angeles Rams, Indianapolis at Houston, Green Bay at the Los Angeles Raiders, and San Diego at Seattle, where Franco Harris may see his first action since leaving Pittsburgh in a contract dispute. Washington is at San Francisco in the Monday night game. The New York Jets played the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night, and lost, 23-17. The Patriots' losing streak in Miami doesn't extend to the rest of Florida —they actually beat, the Dolphins, 38-23, in Tampa in 19G9. Meyer discounts any kind of jinx. "That was players ago, coaches ago, writers ago," he says. Meyer also defies conventional wisdom by suggesting that he'd rather let his defense play to Miami's strength — the passing game qf Marino, Mark Duper & Co. — rather than the relatively thin running attack, which produced only 86 yards in 30 carries against Washington. "If they can run the ball on us, then they have the double-edged sword," Meyer says. "If you can consistently shut down their running attack, then you know what you have to defend against." New England will have to do that shutting down without inside linebacker Clayton Weishuhn, who injured his left knee against Buffalo. Miami also is thin at linebacker, with A.J. Duhe on injured reserve and Earnie Rhone banged up. Dallas and the Giants, both 1-0, were the only two NFC East teams to win last weekend and both did it in uncharacteristic fashion. The Cowboys beat the Rams, 2013, Monday night despite five turnovers, as Gary Hogeboom threw for 343 yards in his first start and a suspect secondary limited Los Angeles' Vince Ferragamo to 11 completions in 33 attempts for 84 yards. The Cowboy secondary will have to contend this week with Phil Simms, who returned from nearly three years of injuries to throw for 409 yards and four touchdowns in a 28-27 victory over the Eagles. Wide receivers Bobby Johnson and Byron Williams combined for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns. The Cowboys may try to offset the loss of injured wide receiver Tony Hill by throwing more to Tony Dorsett, who caught 10 passes for 66 yards against the Rams. "We'll be going to (Dorsett) more this season, particularly if teams keep double-covering some of our other receivers like they have been," offensive backfield coach Al Lavan says. "Tony is a tremendous weapon catching that ball in the open field." It's the old immovable force-irre- sistable object collision at the Los Angeles Coliseum between the Packers and the Raiders. The force is Green Bay's passing attack of Lynn Dickey to James Lofton, John Jefferson and Paul Coffman, as powerful as ever in last week's 24-23 victory over St. Louis. The object is the Raider secondary, led by cornerbacks Mike Haynes and Lester Hayes, who can play man-to-man against anyone. The Raiders limited Houston's Warren Moon to 156 yards in their 24-14 victory last week and much of the yardage came with the Raiders leading, 24-7. late in the game. San Diego goes into Seattle off a 42-13 shellacking of Minnesota. "Covering Sulinn St Kansas" ^~\ |unf lower Carpet Distributor* Waleh For Our "GRAND OPENING" Tluirsdny. Se|il. lillh 248 N.
