Vikings quarterback Warren Moon had Minnesota in place for another fourth-quarter comeback until Phillippi Sparks intercepted him at the New York 4 to end the Vikings' final drive with 3:59 to play. "I tell you, this is reality," Moon said after the 15-10 loss. "We didn't come out and play our game, and the Giants outplayed us." At San Diego, Chris Mims blocked Pete Stoyanovich's 47- yard field goal attempt with 22 seconds left as the Chargers beat Kansas City 22-19. Carolina might have lost much more than a game when top draft pick Tshimanga Biakabutuka went down v/ith a knee injury. Coach Dom Capers said Biakabutuka will undergo an MRI exam today. Biakabutuka, beginning to hit his stride after missing training camp as a holdout, sprained his left knee in the first quarter. On the next possession, backup An- ffi' thony Johnson * fumbled the ball , J away at the Jack—-^^ * sonville 1, and the Jaguars rode the momentum to a surprising 24-14 victory over in the first regular- season meeting between the NFL's two second-year teams. "It was a day for some statements to be made," said Jacksonville coach Tom Coughlin. Dallas will play at Philadelphia tonight. Buffalo, Miami, New England and Indianapolis, the NFL's last undefeated team, were off. The Vikings were in a familiar position — trailing in the fourth quarter — but lost their chance to rally for the fifth time in as many weeks when Moon was intercepted. The Vikings, coming off a key victory over NFC Central favorite Green Bay, had outscored the opposition 42-3 in the final period of their first four games. Moon was 13-of-25 for 143 yards for the Vikings, who got their only touchdown on a 69-yard punt return by David Palmer in the second quarter. After the Vikings got the ball a final time at their 45, Robert Smith ran 28 yards to the Giants 22. A holding penalty moved the ball back to the 32, then Sparks intercepted a pass thrown at Cris Carter on a post pattern. Jaguars 24, Panthers 14 Mark Brunell, who beat out Steve Beuerlein for the starting job last season in Jacksonville, again got the best of the Carolina quarterback. Brunell directed three time-consuming touchdown drives. Beuerlein was making his second straight start for the visiting Panthers (3-1) for the injured Kerry Collins, who came on to throw a touchdown pass after Beuerlein himself was hurt. The Jaguars (2-3) sacked him five times and were in control of the game after scoring touchdowns on their first two drives. Tony Brackens had two sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles, and James Stewart scored on two short runs for the Jaguars. Brunell, who came into the game at Jacksonville with an NFL-high 1,163 yards passing, was 15-for-27 for 214 yards and a touchdown. Bears 19, Raiders 17 Jeff Jaeger, cut by Oakland in training, kicked four field goals, including a decisive 30-yarder with 11 seconds remaining at Chicago. The Associated Press Vikings quarterback Warren Moon is swarmed under by New York Giants end Robert Harris and linebacker Jesse Armstead (98). The Bears (2-3) trailed 17-3 in the second half and were booed by their fans. But they rallied behind two interceptions, three final- quarter field goals by Jaeger and the play of 17-year veteran quarterback Dave Krieg, who started in place of the injured Erik Kramer. The Raiders (1-4) are off to their worst start since dropping their first four games in 1992. Oakland quarterback Jeff Hostetler was picked off four times. Broncos 14, Bengals 10 Playing in Cincinnati for the first time, John Elway threw for a season-high 335 yards and two touchdowns as Denver (4-1) recovered from its loss to Kansas City. , "I just had to start playing my game again," said Elway, who completed 23 of a season-high 37 attempts. Elway threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Shannon Sharpe in the first quarter and a 23-yarder to Anthony Miller for the go-ahead score late in the third period. Terrell Davis complemented Elway with 112 yards rushing, matching the club record with his fourth consecutive 100-yard game. Steelers 30, Oilers 16 Mike Tomczak threw two first- quarter touchdown passes following Houston mistakes. The Steelers (3-1) have won three straight since a season-opening loss to Jacksonville, matching their best first-month start under coach Bill Cowher. The visiting Oilers (2-2) fell to Pittsburgh for the fifth straight time. Jerome Bettis ran for 115 yards — his third straight 100-yard game — and Tomczak outplayed Chris Chandler, who threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. Lions 27, Buccaneers 0 Scott Mitchell threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns, and Bennie Blades scored on a 98-yard interception return as Detroit (3-2) dropped host Tampa Bay to 0-5 for the sixth time in 21 seasons. Barry Sanders, who has rushed for more yards against Tampa Bay (1,763) than any other opponent, gained 73 yards on 15 carries. The Detroit defense forced four turnovers and held the host Bucs to 74 yards in the second hah". MitcheU completed 21 of 32 passes, including touchdown throws of 31 yards to Johnnie Morton and 3 yards to Herman Moore, who had nine receptions for 104 yards. Ravens 17, Saints 10 Earnest Byner ran for 149 yards, and Vinny Testaverde drove Baltimore 75 yards to break a 10-10 tie early in the final quarter as the Ravens (2-2) kept the Saints winless. Byner carried 24 times and broke off a 42-yard run. The Saints (0-5) were pounded by the ground game for the second straight game. A week earlier Arizona's LeShon Johnson gained 214 yards against them. 49ers 39, Falcons 17 San Francisco didn't miss in-^ jured quarterback Steve Young or" ailing tight end Brent Jones as it; continued its mastery at home over Atlanta. » Elvis Grbac threw for 222 yards" and completed 22 of 35 passes. One* was a 16-yard touchdown pass to= Ted Popson — subbing for Jones : — that put San Francisco up 27-3, at halftime. Jeff Wilkins added a team- record-tying six field goals for the 49ers (3-1), who rebounded from last week's 23-7 loss at Carolina during which Young aggravated a groin strain. The 49ers have outscored the Falcons 130-41 in the last three games at 3Com Park. Cardinals 31, Rams 28 (ot) Kent Graham tied team records with 14 straight completions and 37 overall as he threw for four TDs and 366 yards at Sun Devil Stadium. LeShon Johnson — on the heels of a franchise record 214 yards the week before — ran 66 yards in overtime to set up Greg Davis' decisive 24-yard field goal. Graham, who had thrown scoring passes of 24 yards to Rob Moore and 2 yards to Johnson in the first half, threw 5-yard TD passes to Larry Centers and Frank Sanders, whose catch tied it with 11 seconds to play. Rams rookie Tony Banks threw three touchdown passes, two to Isaac Bruce and one to Eddie Kennison, who already had a 66-yard punt return for a TD. Packers 31, Seahawks 10 Brett Favre had four touchdown passes and Rick Mirer threw a career-high four interceptions and lost a fumble as visiting Green Bay (4-1) routed Seattle (1-3). The five takeaways by the NFL's most opportunistic defense gave the Packers 22 for the season. Antonio Freeman caught two scoring passes from Favre, who finished 20-for-34 for 209 yards with no interceptions. Mirer was 10-for-30 for 156 yards for Seattle. Redskins 31, Jets 16 Washington (4-1) got TDs on a 52- yard flea-flicker and a 12-yard reverse by Leslie Shepherd in handing the Jets (0-5) their ninth straight defeat. The hosts benefitted from a controversial fourth-quarter call. Keyshawn Johnson appeared to make only token contact with cor- nerback Tom Carter before catching the ball and landing both feet on the ground in the end zone. • Carter stripped the ball and was awarded an interception after an extended conference among several officials.

"I got moved over by Junior right before the snap," Mims said. "That's the biggest play of my career." Mims also had the first of three San Diego sacks. Ross, who got the Chargers to the Super Bowl in 1994 and won a national championship at Georgia Tech in 1991, said it was one of the most important wins he's been associated with. "It has to do with our field leadership," Ross said. "We were getting it from our veterans. That's why we didn't wilt." Ross said that because of injuries, the Chargers were looking for volunteers on the bench for kickoff coverage duty late in the Seau's first interception also came on a blitz. Repelled at the line, Seau dropped into coverage and caught the ball after safety Rodney Harrison tipped it. That led to Carney's second field goal and a 6-0 lead. Darrien Gordon, who fumbled on a punt return, gave the Chargers a 16-9 lead with an 81-yard punt return with 7:14 left in the third quarter. The teams had traded six field goals when Gordon made his runback. He caught Louie Aguiar's punt at the 19. A Chiefs player got an arm around Gordon's ankle, but he stayed on his feet, turned the corner and raced down the right sideline. He began high-stepping at the 10, and Aguiar leveled him just as he crossed the goal line. The Chiefs tried a fake punt a play earlier and Aguiar would have gotten a first down, but Donnell Bennett was called for holding. The momentum a£er Gordon's return didn't last long, as the Chiefs scored two plays later. Marcus Allen rook a first-down swing pass and turned it into his longest gain since 1984, 59 yards. Safety Kevin Ross saved a touch-, down by dragging him down at the 3. The Chiefs sent Allen up the ; middle as a decoy on the next' play, while Bono rolled right and' hit third-string tight end Reggie; Johnson for the score and a 16-16; tie. "* Carney had kicks of 33, 38,44,39 T and 33 yards, the second time this year he's had five field goals;; Stoyanovich connected from 44, 26, 25 and 32 yards before missing at the end. .„ San Diego's Stan Humphries' was a shaky 19-for-41 for 238 A yards, and didn't throw a TD pass! for the first time this season. Tony Martin, the AFC's leading receiver, had four catches for 48 yards. Bono was 25-for-54 for 280 yajrds.:
