1. GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS
Warren Moon, who turns 41 next week, is on pace for his fifth 4,000-yard passing season. He rallied the Seahawks from a 17-3 deficit in San Diego on Sunday, as Seattle improved to 6-4 with a 37-31 win. The victory, however, was overshadowed by word that Pro Bowl defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy will probably be lost for the year with a broken leg.
2. MEN IN BLACK
It was not a good day for the officials. In Miami back judge Tom Sifferman blew a critical call on an apparent late-game catch by Jets wide-out Wayne Chrebet. In Dallas side judge Tommy Moore did the same near the goal line on a throw to the Cardinals' Rob Moore. Replay, anyone?
3. STARK RAVEN MAD
Eleven penalties, five fumbles (three of them lost), four interceptions. This all happened to the Ravens in their latest nightmare at Three Rivers Stadium, a 37-0 loss to the Steelers. The Browns/Ravens are 0-9 in the '90s in Pittsburgh.
4. BOOMER LIVES
When Jeff Blake began hobbling like Walter Brennan on Sunday in Indianapolis, Boomer Esiason came off the bench to throw two touchdown passes. Bengals win! Bengals win! Boomer: "This isn't 1988. I'm still 100 years old. I'm just happy I was able to play."
5. RED-HOT TUNDRA
The Packers, looking forward to Nov. 23 when they finally get the hated Cowboys at Lam-beau, won their 21st straight at home, a 17-7 victory over the Rams. The only other contenders for home field advantage in the NFC playoffs, the Vikings and the 49ers, are good at home. Green Bay is gold.
