Raked...
Like the leaves of autumn, Chargers rookie quarterback Ryan Leaf has fallen this season. Here the Chiefs drop him during a game in which he completed more passes (2) to K.C. defenders than to his San Diego teammates (1).

Burned...
Even in victories over the Oilers (below) and the Bills, during which he completed a commendable 29 of 55 passes, Leaf gets plucked by the defense.

And Bagged
Despite a pair of sacks and two interceptions, Leaf buffaloed the Bills enough in his pro debut to throw for a touchdown and win 16-14.
