Today's Tv Games

September 11, 1994


Time: 1 p.m., chs. 2, 4

Line: Green Bay by 3

Key injuries: Dolphins: LB Dwight Hollier (knee), WR O. J. McDuffie (knee) are out; LB Chuck Bullough (abdomen) is questionable. Packers: G Guy McIntyre (blood clot), LB Wayne Simmons (knee), CB Roland Mitchell (neck) are out; T Joe Sims (foot) is questionable.

Outlook: Irving Fryar's 211 yards receiving and his 42.2 yards per catch lead the NFL. Green Bay FS George Teague has two interceptions. Dolphins QB Dan Marino proved last week he's not worried about his Achilles' tendon. The Packers will need to get to Marino quickly and can't afford to gamble with single coverage on Fryar or they'll pay. The Dolphins are 7-0 against the Packers.

OILERS (0-1) at COWBOYS (1-0)

Time: 4 p.m., chs. 2, 4

Line: Cowboys by 15

Key injuries: Oilers: WR Gary Wellman (leg) is out; LB Joe Bowden (quadriceps) is doubtful; starting QB Cody Carlson (separated left shoulder) is questionable. Cowboys: RB Derrick Lassic (knee) is out.

Outlook: This will be coach Barry Switzer's first regular-season "home" appearance in Texas. The Oilers' 45-21 loss to the Colts last week was their worst since 1989.

GIANTS (1-0) at CARDINALS (0-1)

Time: 8 p.m., TNT

Line: Cardinals by 3 1/2

Key injuries: Cardinals: WR Gary Clark (groin), CB Chris Oldham (knee) are out.

Outlook: Giants RB Rodney Hampton was held to 85 yards on 20 carries last week. The Cardinals' offensive line gave up four sacks last week. Giants are expecting the Cardinals to blitz QB Dave Brown a lot. And they probably will. But whenever you blitz, you have to gamble. If Brown can find the receiver in single coverage, he can make Arizona pay the price for the blitzing.
