OAKLAND (AP) — Thanks lo Oakland quarlerback Ken Slabler, Ihere was more drama than anyone could expecl from a late-season game between the Super Bowl champion Raiders and lowly Buffalo Bills. "He's a tough guy," Coach John Madden said in a terse appraisal of the left-hander who operated on one sore knee but didn't show it, passing for three louchdowns in Monday nighl's 34-13 Oakland viclory. "The knee hurl the whole game, but I expecled that. II was like a headache, it just throbbed all the time," said Slabler. II wasn'l certain unlil just before gametime lhal Slabler, injured eighl days earlier in a 12-7 loss to the San Diego Chargers, would be starting. "It was up in the air all week," said Madden,' who walched Slabler closely in pregame warmups before settling on him as Ihe starter. Al Ihe same time lasl season, when Ihe Raiders already had clinched a division title, Slabler no doubl would have taken a night off. Bui Ihey're running second lo Denver in Ihe AFC Wesl now and, despite making their record 9-2 Monday nighl, it's very likely the Raiders will be going into Ihe playoffs as Ihe most respecled wild card team in Nalional Football League history. When Stabler Irolled onlo the field for the firsl time, Ihe Oakland fans greeted him with the kind of cheer George Blanda used to hear when he was coming on lo win games a few years back. A few minutes later, Stabler was on his back. He look a punishing, head-on shol from Bills defensive tackle Mike Kadish an inslahl afler releasing Ihe ball on a 38-yard completion lo running back Clarence Davis. "There was a mixup in Ihe blocking on thai play. It didn't happen again," said Raiders offensive tackle Art Shell. "We didn't have to pass loo often in the game. That helped," said guard George Buehler. "The Raiders beat us with the big play," said defensive end Sherman White, who worked across from Shell and guard Gene Upshaw and said, "they both played great games." Stabler completed seven of 12 passes for 166 yards, wilh his louchdown passes going 28 and 12 yards lo Cliff Branch and 44 lo Fred Bilelnikoff. Mark van Eeghen's 143 yards rushing, giving him 1,011 for the season, led the ground attack, which rolled up 307 yards, and Pete Banaszak punched into the end zone for his 50lh and 51sl career louch- downs. The Bills, who have losl O.J. Simpson lo a knee injury and nine of their 11 games 'this year, stayed in the game for a while wilh a one-dimensional offense. Quarlerback Joe Ferguson threw 43 passes, completing 18 including a 29-yard, second period louchdown loss to John Kimbrough, but gained only 65 yards rushing. Bob Chandler caught nine of Ferguson's passes for 120 yards, working mostly against cornerback Neal Colzie who was filling in for injured regular Skip Thomas. Weight-Lifters Here Saturday An amateur weightlifting meet will be staged Saturday in Garden City. The Missouri Valley AAU meet will feature lifting in 10 weight and age classes. Olympic-style lifts — the Iwo- handed snalch and Ihe clean- and-jerk — will be employed.

Houston: In Search Of Some Chemistry NEW YORK (AP) — Whal's wrong wilh Ihe Houston Rockets? The Rockets, who finished atop the National Basketball Association's Central Division wilh a 49-33 record lasl year, lost their sixth game in a row Monday night, 104-86, to Ihe New York Knicks. They're now dead lasl in their division wilh a 6-12 mark, having lost all eight of their road games Ihis season. "We were atrocious," said veteran Rockets guard Mike Newlin, accurately summing up his team's play, particularly in the second half. Afler leading 55-54 al intermission, Houston shot a woeful 28 percenl from Ihe field in Ihe second hall, including one stretch of 7:41 without a basket, and managed just 11 points in the fourth quarter. The 86 points were the fewest allowed by the Knicks this season. The Rockets will have a chance for quick revenge tonight when the two teams meet again, this time at Hous- ton. Monday nighl's game al Madison Square Garden was Ihe only one on Ihe NBA calendar. The Rockets have basically the same personnel they had lasl year, when slrong rebounding and aggressive play offsel a lack of team speed. Bui il hasn'l happened so far this season.
