s c THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 5C Pro football Summaries, 8C Patriots stop Colts Brunell guides Jaguars The Associated Press JACKSONVILLE - The Jacksonville Jaguars finally got a vintage game from Mark Brunell and a typical, close finish against the Baltimore Ravens. (?) :; - (J " (SSI - ' a i ytr r -, ; . j ' Juking pass defenders, slipping out of sacks and throwing on the run, Brunell had his first 300-yard passing game since Sept. 22, leading the Jaguars to a 29 27 vic The Associated Press FOXBORO, Mass. Drew Bledsoe threw two touchdown passes Sunday after going two games without one, and the New England Patriots held on for a 20-17 victory against the Indianapolis Colts. Jim Harbaugh's second scoring pass, an 11-yarder to Sean Daw-kins with 1:08 left, cut the lead to. three, but the Patriots recovered the onside kick and ran out the; clock. The Patriots (8-5), who have six wins against teams with losing records, moved into a three-way tie for the AFC East lead with the' New York Jets, who Jost to Buffalo, and the Dolphins, who beat . Oakland. But New England has no " soft spots in its remaining games : at Jacksonville, at home against Pittsburgh and at Miami, , - "We're now 8-5 and we have yet to play our best football,"-Bledsoe said. "Whether or not we start doing that this week, I don't.; know. But we need to." "'- Bledsoe, who had eight scoring; passes in his first two games but only 13 in his next 10, threw a 3-' yarder to Sam Gash and an 18-' yarder to Troy Brown. Adam Viri-atieri added field goals of 32 and 48 yards for New England. 7 Dolphins statistics Brunell THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 49ers CB Rod Woodson (26) interferes with Chiefs WR Andre Rison in the end zone, setting up a 1-yard TD pass to Ted Popson.

Gannon threw three touchdown passes and Marcus Allen had another on a halfback option, the first time the Chiefs had four touchdowns passes in a game since December 1983 against San Diego. "They did about everything they wanted to on the field," said 49ers cornerback Rod Woodson. The 49ers have failed to score a touchdown in a game twice since 1991 in both of this season's defeats. fl Extra point: The Chiefs, keeping the pressure on the Broncos, have an easier schedule than Denver. The Broncos must travel to Pittsburgh and San Francisco, while the Chiefs have two of their last three at home. The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. Rich Gannon has beaten John Elway, Warren Moon and Steve Young in the past three weeks. Does anyone still think the Kansas City Chiefs are in trouble with the injured Elvis Grbac on the bench? "I like this kind of trouble," said defensive tackle Joe Phillips, who even got involved in the scoring derby in Sunday's stunning 44-9 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. "Rich Gannon's a player. Rich Gannon's a winner," said Phillips, who was in on a safety. Gannon is 3-1 since Grbac went out with a broken collarbone as the Chiefs not only survived the meanest stretch of their schedule, but moved to threaten Denver for the AFC West title and home field in the playoffs. It was the worst loss for the 49ers, who lost running back Garrison Hearst for four to six weeks with a broken collarbone, since a 59-14 defeat by Dallas in October 1980. The Chiefs (10-3) stunned the favored 49ers (11-2) by taking a 28-6 halftime lead. "We needed to start fast," Chiefs center Tim Grunhard said. "I don't know what will happen tomorrow, but today everything went our way. But I never felt comfortable. You can block a guy for four quarters and then give up a sack and you're still the goat." By not allowing a second-half touchdown for the eighth straight game, the Chiefs put an exclamation mark on the lopsided victory with a safety and a touch tory against the Ravens on Sunday. The Jaguars (9-4) have never lost to the Baltimore-Cleveland franchise, although they have had to come from behind in the fourth quarter in the past four meetings. This time, the Ravens (4-8-1) had a chance to return the favor. Eric Zeier, subbing for an injured Vinny Testaverde, rallied the Ravens to two fourth-quarter touchdowns, closing to within 29-27 with 1:10 left on his 7-yard pass to Eric Green. ' But on the two-point conversion attempt, Zeier tripped over the leg of left tackle Jonathan Ogden on a quarterback draw. Baltimore then failed to recover the onside kick. The Jaguars, who won their 13th straight home game, are tied with Pittsburgh, which defeated Arizona, for first place in the AFC Central. "Once again, field goals instead of touchdowns did make it close," Jaguars coach Tom Cough-lin said. "Believe me, I'm not complaining. As long as you win, that's the key." v Testaverde sprained a ligament in his left knee on a sack just before half time with the Ravens leading 14-13. Zeier replaced him, but he didn't throw a pass until the fourth quarter. Zeier was sacked three times on the Ravens' two possessions in the third quarter, giving Jacksonville a team-record 38 sacks. Brunell, who finished 25-of-40 for 317 yards, dominated the third quarter, throwing a 26-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Damon Jones. Brunell led Jacksonville on two lengthy drives with clutch passing and running, although the Jaguars had to settle for short field goals by Mike Hol-lis, who had five for the game. B Extra point: Jacksonville is now 6-0 against Baltimore-Cleveland. Its past four victories have been by a combined nine points.

"I hope the glass of wine feels better tonight. We didn't win the Super Bowl today, but hopefully we gave something back to some good people." After Brian Mitchell's 2-yard touchdown run tied the score at 20 with 1:50 to play, the Rams moved 53 yards in seven plays to set up the winning kick. The key play was a third-and-10 completion from Tony Banks (19-for-38, 298 yards) to Lee, who split two defenders for The Associated Press LANDOVER, Md. Jerald Moore and Amp Lee not only put the Lawrence Phillips saga to rest, they might have done the same for the Washington Redskins' playoff hopes. The Rams ended an eight-game losing streak with a 23-20 victory Sunday. Moore and Lee each scored a touchdown for St. Louis, and Lee's 45-yard reception set up Jeff Wilkins' game-winning 25-yard field goal with four seconds to play. "I haven't jumped ship on them, and they the 45-yard gain to the Redskins 5. Banks took a knee on the next play to move the ball to the center of the field, setting up Wilkins' third field goal of the game. "I don't know how it got away," said cornerback Darrell Green, shaking his head. "I wish I knew." B Extra point: Frerotte's string of passes without an interception came to an end when he was picked off by safety Keith Lyle in the first quarter. Frerotte had gone 121 attempts without an interception.

Jerome Bettis ran over defenders on a 10-yard touchdown run to lead the Steelers past the Arizona Cardinals 26-20 in overtime Sunday and keep Pittsburgh on track for the AFC Central title. Bettis, who had 142 yards on 36 carries, bulled his way off right tackle for the winning score with 9:26 left in the extra period. He also scored on runs of 2 and 7 yards. 'This is not the greatest way tj win a game," he said after helping Pittsburgh stay on track for the AFC Central title. "We want to win a game in the third quarter, not the fifth." ; Norm Johnson had field goals of 40 and 39 yards for the Steelers (9-4), who kept pace with Jacksonville in their division. ; Joe Nedney had 32- and 19-yard field goals for the Cardinals (3-10), but the former Dolphin went wide right from 46 yards with six seconds left in regulation. ' At that point, Jake Plummer had brought the Cardinals back from three deficits. He was 15-of-26 for 270 yards and scoring passes of 3 yards to Frank Sanders and 11 to Chris Gedney. ; But Bettis was the point man for a ball-control offense that allowed the Steelers to keep the ball nearly 40 of 65V2 minutes. Pittsburgh sacked Plummer 10 times for 53 yards, including once in the final minute of regulation and twice in overtime. ! It was Arizona's fourth overtime of the season, tying the franchise record set in 1995. The Cardinals are 1-3 in those games. ' B Extra point: It was Bettis' ninth 100-yard game of the season and 30th of his career.
