After the Jets beat the Patriots at the Meadowlands last October, New York coach Bill Parcells walked up the tunnel with struggling New England wideout Terry Glenn and asked him, "What the hell is wrong with you?"

"He's really a good kid," Parcells says of his former whipping boy.... Rams running back Amp Lee, the team's MVP in '97, is having another outstanding season. On Sunday, during a 30-10 win over the Jets, Lee carried nine times for 53 yards and two touchdowns and caught six passes for 62 yards. Among running backs, only Arizona's Larry Centers (362 receptions) has more catches than Lee's 260 since the start of the '94 season.
