1. The Dolts.
How bad is Indianapolis? The Jets, who entered Sunday's game ranked 29th in the league in rushing, piled up 302 yards on the ground, including 82 yards from fullback Jerald Sowell (above), in a 44-6 thrashing of the Colts. "A disgrace," Indy president Bill Polian said afterward. "People aren't going to pick up a paycheck to play like that."
2. Time Management.
After an 0-2 start the Rams complained last week that practice was too long, so coach Dick Vermeil shortened the three-hour daily sessions by 45 minutes—but he did not cut back on his team's preparation. He just ran various drills concurrently and took away 30 minutes from the time allotted for lunch. "If a guy thinks he can run faster by drinking pink buttermilk," Vermeil said last week, "get him all the pink buttermilk he can drink." Result: Rams 34, Bills 33.
3. The Norv Watch.
In four-plus seasons Norv Turner's record as Redskins coach stands 14 games below .500, and a loss to the Broncos this Sunday would give Washington its first 0-4 start in 17 years. Turner's lucky to have Bill Clinton taking all the heat in the nation's capital these days.
