Extra Points

Nfl Week 6

October 13, 2003

Marvelous mark

Marvin Harrison broke the Colts' franchise record for receiving yards and set the NFL record for fewest games needed (114) to reach 700 receptions. He passed Hall of Famer Raymond Berry (9,275) for the franchise record. He now holds the club records for receptions, yards and touchdowns.

Back-to-back

Browns' William Green, who rushed for 115 yards last week vs. Pittsburgh, is the first Cleveland back to have consecutive 100-yard games since Kevin Mack in 1986.

Winning personality

Titans' Jeff Fisher picked up his 80th win, making him the fourth-youngest coach to reach that total behind John Madden, Don Shula and Bill Cowher.

Bucking for No. 1

Broncos' Rod Smith has caught a pass in 67 straight games, one short of Ed McCaffrey's team record.

Soaring Jet

Jets' Vinny Testaverde, who passed Joe Montana for seventh place on the NFL's career yardage list, threw three touchdown passes in a game for the first time since tossing five in a 40-37 overtime victory over Miami on Oct. 23, 2000.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Atlanta (1-4) at St. Louis (2-2)

Time: 9

TV: Chs. 2, 7

Line: Rams by 10 1/2 .

Key stat: Rams have won past six meetings.

Players to watch: Falcons' T.J. Duckett is improving, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Rams' Lamar Gordon is averaging 4.4 yards per carry.

The buzz: This was supposed to be Kurt Warner vs. Michael Vick. Marc Bulger vs. Doug Johnson doesn't quite measure up. Gordon could steal the show against the Falcons' soft defense against the rush.

NEXT WEEK

Kansas City (6-0) at Oakland (2-4)

The Chiefs again showed their resilience, rallying from a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit yesterday to remain undefeated. They will face a desperate Raiders team that is rapidly falling from playoff contention. Tennessee (4-2) at Carolina (5-0)

Titans quarterback Steve McNair is having a stellar year, but the Panthers are for real, with their unbeaten record including road victories over the Buccaneers and Colts.
