ARCHERY—At the world championships in Long Beach, Calif., RICK McKINNEY of the U.S. won his second men's title, edging countryman Darrell Pace. Both finished with 2,617 points, but McKinney had shot 124 10s to Pace's 116. JIN HO KIM of South Korea won the women's title, while the U.S. and SOUTH KOREA won the men's and women's team titles, respectively.

BOXING—BRUCE CURRY successfully defended his WBC super lightweight title with a 12-round split decision over Leroy Haley in Las Vegas.

Eusebio Pedroza retained his WBA featherweight title with a 15-round unanimous decision over Jose Caba in Saint-Vincent, Italy.

PRO FOOTBALL—There were so many comebacks it seemed Lee Iacocca had been named commissioner. Green Bay set the tone Monday night, when Jan Stenerud kicked a 20-yard field goal with 54 seconds left to beat Washington 48-47. On Sunday, the Redskins rebounded to overpower Detroit 38-17, despite the absence of John Riggins due to an ailing back. Joe Washington started in his place and rushed for 147 yards. Atlanta trailed the Jets 21-0 late in the third quarter but needed only 4:08 to tie the score. With White Shoes Johnson, who scored a TD on a 71-yard punt return in the last quarter, leading the way, the Falcons went on to a 27-21 victory. The San Francisco 49ers scored 21 points in the last 7:51 to overcome the Los Angeles Rams 45-35 (page 22). Denver scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat Dan Fouts-less (shoulder injury) San Diego 14-6. New Orleans quickly fell behind Tampa Bay 14-0, but Safety Bobby Johnson's 70-yard third-quarter interception return for a TD gave the Saints a 24-21 win over the 0-8 Bucs. Veteran Cornerback Ken Riley's 42-yard interception return for a score gave Cincinnati a 28-21 win over Cleveland. The Browns had led 21-14 in the third quarter. Two other comebacks didn't quite pay off. Seattle charged from a 24-0 deficit to scare Pittsburgh before succumbing 27-21, and Green Bay couldn't do it again. The Packers fell behind Minnesota 17-3 before losing 20-17 in overtime on Benny Ricardo's 32-yard field goal. Dallas, which had come back seven times in going 7-0, had something of a reverse pulled, as the Los Angeles Raiders came back to win 40-38, on a 26-yard field goal by Chris Bahr with :20 remaining on the clock. Miami whipped Baltimore 21-7, Chicago edged Philadelphia 7-6, New England shocked Buffalo 31-0 and Kansas City kept Houston winless with a 13-10 overtime win.

GOLF—PAYNE STEWART shot a 19-under-par 269 to win a $400,000 PGA event by two strokes over Nick Faldo and Mark McCumber in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

HOCKEY—Quebec blew through its three opponents like a Nordique wind, winning by a combined score of 24-6. Tony McKegney had five goals and three assists, and Peter Stasny added two goals and six assists during the Quebec binge. The Nordiques, who lead the Adams Division and have three of the NHL's top four scorers, capped off the week with an 11-2 thrashing of Minnesota. Those 11 goals were the most the North Stars have allowed in a game in nearly seven years. The Rangers beat the Islanders 3-2, with rookie Right Wing Peter Sundstrom, at 3:09 of the third period, scoring his third game-winning goal of the season. He made it four the next night when his overtime goal gave the 9-1 Rangers a 6-5 win. They paced the Patrick Division, which had a bad week. Its six teams were 2-7-1 in intra-division play. Edmonton continued to lead the Smythe Division, despite having its seven-game season-opening win streak snapped 7-2 by previously winless Los Angeles. Thus buoyed, the Kings blitzed New Jersey 8-3, with newly acquired Ken Houston getting a hat trick. In a battle for sole possession of first place in the Norris Division, Joey Mullen's pair of goals gave St. Louis a 2-1 victory over Chicago.
