* The Houston Oilers' Warren Moon became Houston's all-time leading passer in his team's 24-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. He has 19,289 career passing yards, surpassing the record set by former quarterback George Blanda.

* When the Cleveland Browns' Bernie Kosar was intercepted by the San Diego Chargers' Sam Seale in the second quarter of San Diego's 24-14 victory, it ended a streak of 152 straight regular-season passes without an interception.

* The Los Angeles Raiders made it eight victories without a loss at the Los Angeles Coliseum since Art Shell became coach Oct. 3.

* San Diego Chargers safety Vencie Glenn sustained a concussion when he tackled Cleveland's Reggie Langhorne on a third-quarter reception.

* The Minnesota Vikings' Wade Wilson injured his right thumb while being sacked on the s final play of a 19-16 loss to the Chicago Bears. He might miss two months.

* New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor injured his left hamstring on the final play of the Giants' 20-3 victory over the Miami Dolphins, and his status for next Sunday's game with Dallas is uncertain. Giants tight end Mark Bavaro sprained his right ankle early in the first quarter, but returned. Giants quarterback Phil Simms injured his left ankle late in the first half but returned for the second half.

* Los Angeles Raiders rookie cornerback Garry Lewis suffered a broken clavicle in the game's opening series. He probably will be placed on the injured reserve list during the next couple of days.

* The Atlanta Falcons' Steve Broussard, the team's 1990 No. 1 draft choice, had to be helped from the field after a hit by the San Francisco 49ers' Ronnie Lott late in the third quarter. He did not return.

* Denver Broncos starting cornerback Tyrone Braxton left with a hyperextended knee late in the first quarter.

* The Indianapolis Colts' Jack Trudeau replaced rookie quarterback starter Jeff George in the second quarter when George was bothered by a stomach ailment. George went back into the game in the final minutes after Trudeau and No. 3 quarterback Mark Herrmann were forced to the sidelines by injuries. Herrmann, who came on after Trudeau injured his left hand, was helped from the field and taken to the locker room with a collarbone injury after two plays. George, who had missed practice earlier in the week with abdominal problems, returned and showed signs of pain as he reached to touch himself after each passing attempt.
