Conference All Games W W 7 49ers'Young, Bills'Kelly, Broncos' Elway spark their teams' comebacks By The Associated Press They have won dozens of big games over the years. On Sunday, Steve Young, Jim Kelly and John Elway added to their history of dramatic comebacks. Young, playing with a pulled groin muscle that forced him out early in the game, threw for a touchdown and ran for another in the final 2:08 to give San Francisco a 28-21 win over Cincinnati. The Niners trailed 21-0 early. "You could not ask for a more gutsy performance than what he did out there, especially when you know what Steve's been going through," said San Francisco coach George Seifert, who picked up his 100th career win faster than anyone else in NFL history. Elway, who has plagued the franchise now known as the Baltimore Ravens, won a game in the fourth quarter for the 32nd time in his career, rallying Denver to a 4534 victory after Vinny Testaverde had thrown three third-quarter TD passes for the Ravens. And Kelly, having an off year, put Buffalo in position for Steve Christie's sixth field goal of the game, a 47-yarder with 10 seconds left that gave the Bills a 25-22 win over the winless New York Jets. In other games Sunday, a 60-yard pass from Troy Aikman to Kelvin Martin for Dallas beat winless Atlanta 32-28 at Texas Stadium. And Jimmy Johnson and Miami were beaten 35-28 in Philadelphia, as Johnson reject Irving Fryar caught four touchdown passes for the Eagles. Oakland is at San Diego tonight. Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay and Minnesota were idle. The most dramatic heroics came from Young, who hadn't played since reinsuring his groin Sept. 22 at Carolina. He started, but was lifted early as the Bengals (1-6) jumped ahead. But his replacement, Elvis Grbac, injured a shoulder after throwing a pass to Ted Popson for San Francisco's first touchdown. Young, who was 19 of 30 for 274 yards, hit Popson in the third quarter to cut the deficit to a touchdown. But he saved the best for last. First, he directed an 88-yard drive, capping" it with a 45-yard touchdown pass to rookie Terrell Owens that tied the game with 2:08 left. Then, after Dedrick Dodge intercepted Jeff Blake, Young ran in on a 15-yard bootleg, limping into the end zone as he was mobbed by his teammates. "I think we had him frustrated at first but he's a great quarterback and he made the plays when he had to," Bengals linebacker James Francis said. Cowboys 32, Falcons 28 At Texas Stadium, Morten Andersen kicked five field goals, including a 37-yarder with 7:09 left that put the Falcons (0-7) ahead 28-25. But Aikman brought the Cowboys back, hitting Deion Sanders with a 19-yard pass and finding Martin in stride for the game-winner. Martin, reacquired by Dallas early this season, broke free up the middle for his first score as a Cowboy since 1992. Bills 25, Jets 22 Darick Holmes gave Buffalo (52) a 19-15 lead, and then Christie hit from 33 yards to make it 2215. Frank Reich engineered an 80- The Associated Press San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young scores the winning touchdown Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals on a 15-yard carry. The 49ers prevailed 28-21, overcoming a 21-0 deficit. yard drive in nine plays with no timeouts left to tie it on Wayne Chrebet's diving 21-yard TD catch with 1:43 to go. But the Bills surged back for their ninth victory in the last 10 road games against the Jets (0-8). Passes of 17 and 14 yards by Kelly to rookie Eric Moulds set up Christie's winning kick and gave him a career high for one game. Oilers 23, Steelers 13 With by far the largest crowd of the season (50,122) cheering its approval, Chris Chandler completed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Willie Davis with 5:01 left to put the Oil- ers ahead. Eddie George clinched it with a 2-yard run with 3:05 remaining. Houston's comeback ended the Steelers' five-game winning streak and tied the Oilers and Steelers atop the AFC Central Division at 5-2. The Steelers led for most of the fiercely played game, and Norm Johnson's 29-yard field goal gave them a 13-9 lead with 11:39 to go. Eagles 35, Dolphins 28 Fryar, told to seek work elsewhere by Johnson in Miami, caught TD passes of 38,2,36 and 12 yards from Ty Detmer, who was making his second start in place of the injured Rodney Peete. Ricky Watters chipped in with 173 yards on 25 carries, including a 49-yard touchdown run with 2:28 left in the game that gave the Eagles (5-2) a 35-21 lead in the game at Veterans Stadium. Panthers 19, Saints? Anthony Johnson, replacing the injured Tshimanga Biakabutuka, had his third consecutive 100-yard rushing game. It was the fourth win without a loss at Ericsson Stadium for Carolina (5-2), which has allowed just three touchdowns and 33 points in their new $187 million facility. John Kasay kicked four field goals for the Panthers. The Saints (2-6) led 7-6 at halftime, but were held to 62 yards in the second half. Redskins 31, Giants 21 At RFK Stadium, Terry Allen scored three touchdowns and Darrell Green returned an interception 68 yards for another score in the first half to give the Redskins (6-1) a 28-0 lead. That was enough to hold off a furious New York rally. Dave Brown, who finished two yards shy of his first 300-yard NFL game, threw for two touchdowns and Tyrone Wheatley ran for one. It took a 45-yard field goal by Scott Blanton to ice the game after New York (2-5) had pulled within seven. Patriots 27, Colts 9 In Indianapolis, Curtis Martin ran for two touchdowns and the Patriots turned two Colts fumbles into TDs. A third fumble cost the Colts a possible touchdown of their own. A 42-yard punt return by David Meggett set up a 44-yard field goal by the Patriots' Adam Vinatieri, and the Colts (5-2) three times lost the ball on downs. New England (4-3) broke open the game in the third quarter after rookie Marrio Grier recovered a fumble by Colts rookie Marvin Harrison on a punt return at the Indianapolis 17. Martin then ran four times, scoring his first touchdown from the 1 for a 17-6 New England lead. Cardinals 13, Bucs 9 Kent Graham, starting his fifth straight game, was 17-of-26 for 146 yards and a touchdown in the game at Sun Devil Stadium. He also was the top Cardinals rusher, scrambling for 40 yards on six carries to keep drives alive. Matt Darby, acquired in the off- season from the Buffalo Bills, blocked an extra point after the only TD by Tampa Bay (1-6), and rookie Tommy Bennett stopped the Bucs on two straight pass plays to preserve a 13-9 victory for Arizona (3-4). Rams 17, Jaguars 14 Outgained 538 yards to 204, the Rams' defense compensated with five interceptions, all of them deep in St. Louis territory, as'the Rams broke a five-game winning streak. Anthony Parker scored his second defensive touchdown in two weeks on a 92-yard return in the first quarter one on of his two pick- offs. Keith Lyle also had two interceptions for the Rams (2-5), who avoided the embarrassment of losing to the league's two newest teams on consecutive weekends by beating the Jaguars (2-5). The Rams lost 45-13 at Charlotte last week.

T HIGH SCHOOL GOLF State tournaments set for today South's Mitchell to play in Class 6-5A meet at Salina Municipal course By The Journal Staff Sara Mitchell will be on her own at today's Class 6-5A Girls State Golf Tournament. Mitchell, a Salina South junior, is the lone Salina qualifier for the state event, which gets under way at 9:30 a.m. today at Salina Municipal Golf Course. Mitchell qualified for her first state tourney appearance with a top 10 finish at last week's regional meet at Emporia. "When we went to Emporia, Sara fully expected to qualify and then she got off to a bad start," South coach Jim Scheffer said. "She shot a 48 on the front nine, but it might have been to her benefit. She relaxed on the back nine and shot 88 (to tie for seventh) and make it to state. "She's got a lot of talent and if she just relaxes and plays she will do very well. I hope that's what she does Monday because she deserves to have a good round, as most kids in the tournament deserve to have a good round." Course knowledge may take some of the pressure off Mitchell today. She not only plays golf at Salina Municipal, but works at the local course on a part-time basis. "Sara is really excited to be playing on her home course," Scheffer said. "I think she has realized there is a certain amount of pressure that goes with that because people's expectations are somewhat high, but there is nothing wrong with that if you can handle that pressure." Hays High will be among the 12 schools competing for the 6- 5A team title. The Indians qualified for state with a third-place finish at last week's Dodge City regional, where Hays High's Tamara Munsch finished third overall. St. Thomas Aquinas, Arkansas City and Manhattan are among the team favorites and have combined to win the last eight 6-5A titles. Ark City is two-time defending champion and won the Emporia regional last week. • Clay Center competes at the Class 4-3-2-1A State Tournament today at Emporia's Municipal Golf Course, attempting to take the next step after finishing second at state a year ago. The Tigers won the St. Marys regional by 88 strokes last week and had all six team members finish in the top 10, led by regional medalist Ashley Riek. Among the teams Clay Center will compete against is two-time defending champion Columbus, along with regional champions Lamed and Fredonia. Columbus has won the 4-3-2-1A title five of the last six years, but four-time state individual champion Jill Simpson completed her eligibility with the 1995 tournament.
