CINCINNATI -- Craig Smith, Bruce Smith, Billy Martin, Mike Giordano and Brandon Exeler are prepared for any emergency. Especially those of the culinary and beverage variety. The five lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fans are the proud owners of a "Who Dey" ambulance, an orange-and-black-striped (unofficial) emergency vehicle that they drive to a parking lot about a quarter-mile southwest of Paul Brown Stadium. Before last night's AFC North showdown between the Ravens and the Bengals, the five owners and about 15 more friends cooked up jambalaya and played a game that involved tossing beanbags through holes in platforms.

1. The Redskins need to settle on the interior offensive line positions and have them produce, both in the running game and pass protection. 2. They must get some consistency and big plays at quarterback, whether it's Shane Matthews or Danny Wuerffel throwing the ball. 3. Their young wide receivers must come through and be in sync with the quarterback. Rod Gardner is the No. 1 receiver and he's only in his second season. 4. Running back Stephen Davis needs to be used in the passing game and given enough carries to represent a running threat.

ASHBURN, Va. - Bruce Smith, the league's all-time leader in sacks, announced that he will retire after this - his 19th - season. The Washington Redskins defensive end made his announcement yesterday at the team's practice facility three days after collecting his 199th sack against the New York Giants' Jesse Palmer and surpassing Reggie White's league record of 198. Smith, who spent 15 seasons with the Buffalo Bills and the past four with the Redskins, said...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Bruce Smith and the Washington Redskins got what they so desperately wanted. Smith broke the NFL record for career sacks with his 199th, and the Redskins staved off a mounting tide of frustration and criticism by defeating the New York Giants, 20-7, yesterday at Giants Stadium for only their second win in nine games. The victory meant little except that Washington (5-8) beat New York (4-9) for only the second time in the teams' past seven meetings. Less than half of the announced attendance of 78,217 bothered to show up, much less stay for the duration of the game.

ASHBURN, Va. - People who have been in Bruce Smith's company know that he is reserved, even-tempered and relaxed. That's why, as Smith's Washington Redskins (3-3) prepare to visit the Buffalo Bills (3-3) at 4:15 p.m. Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the defensive end is single-minded - almost guarded - about returning to the birthplace of his NFL career. "I haven't been back there in four years," Smith, a defensive end, said. "I'm going there with a purpose right now and that's to win a ballgame.

LANDOVER - If there's one positive note the Washington Redskins can take with them for the holidays, they can breathe easy in knowing that they are better than an expansion team. The Redskins proved that yesterday by racking up a season-high 247 rushing yards and limiting the first-year Houston Texans to 166 yards of total offense en route to a 26-10 victory before 70,291 at FedEx Field. Washington (6-9) broke a three-game skid and collected only its second win in the past seven contests, leaving left tackle Chris Samuels to remark, "It's a big win. A great Christmas gift."
