THERE WAS A little bit more than 14 minutes left in the game yesterday when Cincinnati Bengals running back Corey Dillon took a handoff and was smothered by Ravens defensive end Michael McCrary for a 2-yard loss. Dillon got up and slammed the ball to the ground. He stormed off the field only to be waved back on by Bengals coach Bruce Coslet. Dillon, though, waved off Coslet like Brady Anderson once blew off a bunt signal. He took a position on the bench, where he was comforted by teammates.

NEW YORK -- The Boomer has finally lowered on the New York Jets.After declining to comment since former coach Bruce Coslet was fired by general manager Dick Steinberg 12 days ago, quarterback Boomer Esiason admitted yesterday that he kept his lips zipped because he was so unnerved by the firing of his "very dear friend" he feared saying something he might regret.But Esiason went on the offensive yesterday.He contended the "selfishness" of some Jets -- specifically wide receiver Rob Moore, tight end Johnny Mitchell and strong safety Brian Washington -- hurt Coslet in the eyes of management.

In the fourth week of the season, against the bumbling Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens found an identity that can take them as far as they want to go. Integrating smashmouth football into a diversified offensive profile yesterday, the Ravens drubbed the Bengals, 37-0, at PSINet Stadium before an announced crowd of 68,481.The Ravens gave Cincinnati a pound of Jamal Lewis, a pinch of Priest Holmes and a ton of defense in a game that essentially was...

An Oakland, Calif., prosecutor said New York Jets coach Bruce Coslet may have lied in a pre-trial hearing to help longtime friend Michael Blatt, who is accused of murder, the New York Post reported yesterday.But Tori Verber, a law clerk in the San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office in Stockton, said that, "At no time has this office considered perjury charges against Mr. Coslet."Blatt, a college friend of Coslet's and a former interim general manager of the Seattle Seahawks, is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the killing of Laurence Carnegie.

CINCINNATI -- The hottest spot in Cincinnati these days is the parking space next to the one belonging to Bengals president and general manager Mike Brown.That's where former head coach Dave Shula parked until Brown fired him Oct. 21 in the wake of a 1-6 start. At the moment, the space belongs to Brown's daughter, Bengals corporate secretary Katie Blackburn.Up until last Sunday's 30-27 loss in Jacksonville, it was a pretty safe bet that Shula's successor, Bruce Coslet, would get the spot for the next few years.

CINCINNATI -- Bengals coach Bruce Coslet doesn't know how many more of these he can take.But his boss does."I would say that's our miracle for the year," said club president Mike Brown, after watching the Bengals score 21 points in Sunday's final 14 minutes to stun Arizona, 24-21. "I've seen a lot of comebacks in 30 years. But that had to be our most improbable."Improbable? Sunday's victory made the Bengals' 14-point fourth quarter last year in Baltimore look like a rout. In the "Miracle at Memorial" on Nov. 3 in which Cincinnati trailed 21-3 at halftime, the Bengals forged their biggest road comeback on two Doug Pelfrey field goals in the final 1: 49 to win, 24-21.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The season is only two games old, but the New York Jets have said a lot about themselves.They can score points in bunches. The defense, though inconsistent, is capable of making big plays. And, judging by the way they handled themselves late in the game yesterday against the Cleveland Browns, they must be maturing.Instead of running scared (see last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals), the Jets ran with the poise of a seasoned marathoner. In the end, they showed a little kick in beating the Browns, 24-21.

The Bob Irsay dummy is back. He's got a new suit and new shoes. He's got that same thick smile and those same rosy-red cheeks. His pockets are stuffed with play money. Just like you remember him, right?The Bob Irsay dummy will be in a 134-person, three-bus caravan that makes the drive from Baltimore to Philadelphia Sunday. And he'll have a $30 seat in Veterans Stadium when the Eagles try to keep the Indianapolis Colts winless.For the second time since the Colts moved to Indianapolis, they'll play at the Vet. For the second time since they moved, a Baltimore contingent will be on hand to . . . well, root for the Eagles.

The Cincinnati Bengals were victims of self-inflicted wounds yesterday."We shot ourselves in the foot," said offensive tackle Jamain Stephens, who came into the game when Willie Anderson was injured in the second period and was guilty of a false start two plays later that wiped out what would have been Jeff Blake's 63-yard touchdown pass to Darnay Scott.That set the tone for the Bengals in their 22-0 loss to the Ravens, a team they played down to the final buzzer in Cincinnati on Nov. 21 before losing, 34-31.

As if being 1-9 and having a coach fighting for his job aren't enough hardships, the Cincinnati Bengals can also throw into the mix a disgruntled starting quarterback who is counting the weeks until free agency.That would be Jeff Blake, who regained his job the past two games after losing it to rookie Akili Smith in the fifth week."I've been on a roller coaster the last two years, and I'm still here for some reason," said Blake, who becomes a free agent at the end of this season.Is he looking to stay in Cincinnati?

It worked for the San Diego Chargers last week, so the Cincinnati Bengals are ready to try the same tactic against the Ravens on Sunday.The Chargers benched their starting quarterback, rookie Ryan Leaf, for Craig Whelihan, who had started -- and lost -- just seven NFL games, and he managed to edge the Ravens, 14-13, last Sunday.Now the Bengals are benching their starter, veteran Neil O'Donnell, for another quarterback who has started only seven NFL games in his career -- Paul Justin.But that's where the similarities end.Justin is not the inexperienced quarterback Whelihan was.While Whelihan's only starts were the last seven games of last season, Justin is a veteran of Arena Football, was a World Bowl MVP and got his first NFL start in 1995 for the Colts when Ted Marchibroda was the coach.

CINCINNATI -- The apprenticeship ends for a lot of the Ravens today when they play the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1997 season finale at Cinergy Field.The Ravens (6-8-1) have one of the youngest teams in the NFL, but the team is expected to grow into a playoff contender by the start of the 1998 season when they move into a new stadium at Camden Yards."I think the expectations should be the playoffs, there's no question about that," said coach Ted Marchibroda, who is completing his second year with the Ravens.

Hertz and Avis swapped places at Memorial Stadium yesterday.Make that read Doug Pelfrey and Matt Stover, two kickers who played contrasting roles in the Ravens' 23-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.The Bengals' Pelfrey had entered the game as the most accurate active NFL kicker with a conversion rate of 81.4 percent (105 of 129) over his four-plus seasons in Cincinnati. That was slightly better than Stover's 80.1 percent (129 of 161) in six-plus seasons with the Cleveland Browns and Ravens.

It's only Week 2, but the Ravens' game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Memorial Stadium today already has been put into the "must win" classification.This will be the second straight AFC Central game for the Ravens (0-1) before they hit the road for successive games against the New York Giants, Tennessee Oilers and San Diego Chargers. The Ravens franchise hasn't won on the road since the eighth game of the 1995 season, when the Cleveland Browns defeated the Bengals, 29-26, in overtime."Without a doubt, for this team specifically, this is the biggest game of our short history here for a number of reasons," veteran running back Earnest Byner said.

He has learned that being the NFL's former No. 1 draft pick means nothing now.Carter scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to help the Cincinnati Bengals beat Jacksonville, 28-21, last Sunday, but it wasn't enough to erase the humiliation he has felt in his first NFL season."

Cincinnati Bengals linebackers coach Mark Duffner said he has no hard feelings toward the University of Maryland, where he coached for five years before being fired last fall.Duffner, who compiled a 20-35 record with the Terps, will accompany the Bengals to Baltimore for Sunday's game against the Ravens at Memorial Stadium."I've never been one to look back. I just thank them for the opportunity to coach there," said Duffner, 44. "I wish the program nothing but the best of luck. I enjoy coaching where I am right now, in the pros, and there are a lot of similarities to coaching in college."
