Ravens scout George Kokinis sizes up the Vikings: Strength: The dangerous receiving corps. Cris Carter is Mr. Clutch and is a threat in the red zone. Randy Moss is just a threat anywhere on the field. Tight end Byron Chamberlain is the reliable third-down target when everybody loads up on those two outside weapons. Weakness: The mentally taxing season. At some point, their problems have to take their toll, especially the latest one with coach Dennis Green leaving. The Vikings have had to deal with the death of Korey Stringer, the retirement of Robert Smith and the injuries at quarterback.

The formation: I-formation, pro right.The action: At the snap, left guard Randall McDaniel, left tackle Todd Steussie and center Jeff Christy step left for back-side pass protection. Right guard David Dixon steps left to double on the nose tackle, and right tackle Korey Stringer steps out to block on the end as both linemen sell a run-blocking look. Fullback Charles Evans (29) runs to the right as a lead blocker and, if no opposing player is attacking, flares to the right flat while running back Leroy Hoard (44)

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Washington Redskins haven't had their starting cornerbacks, Darrell Green and Martin Mayhew, in uniform together since the second game of the season.But they keep surviving in the secondary because they've managed to start one or the other in every game but one since Game 2, when Green broke a forearm.Mayhew lasted until the 10th game of the season, when he suffered the same injury against the Kansas City Chiefs.Green returned the following week as a part-timer against the New Orleans Saints and moved back into the starting lineup a game later.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jason Sehorn proposed to television actress Angie Harmon on "The Tonight Show." He got down on his knee, then knelt and knelt and knelt. It took the stunned Harmon, who stars on "Law and Order," nearly 30 seconds to say yes. It was wonderful. In that same span of time Sunday, Sehorn knows that something terrible could happen. Sehorn, 29, a cornerback for the New York Giants, could be turned inside out, left spinning in his cleats, deposited red-faced and embarrassed on his backside while the best young wide receiver in the game, Randy Moss, adds to his highlight film.

When Minnesota Vikings receivers Cris Carter and Randy Moss come to town Monday night, they will likely encounter a Ravens secondary with a little more Pro Bowl punch. The Ravens agreed in principle yesterday with former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Carnell Lake and expect to sign him to a one-year contract pending a successful physical today. It is believed to be worth around the veteran minimum of $477,000. According to team officials, the chances of the five-time Pro Bowl performer suiting up against the Vikings are "very good."

MINNEAPOLIS - Randy Moss caught only two passes yesterday against the New Orleans Saints, but he might as well have caught 2 million. The wide receiver opened both halves of the NFC divisional playoff game at the Metrodome with fireworks that rivaled those set off after the final second ticked off the clock. In the process, he led the Minnesota Vikings to a 34-16 victory. Minnesota will meet the winner of today's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants next Sunday for the NFC championship.

Brian Billick passes too much. Brian Billick doesn't pass enough. In a year when the Ravens changed quarterbacks and endured a five-game touchdown drought, their coach has drawn fire for his handling of the offense. The latest criticism came this week on the Web site for The Sporting News, where Billick was characterized as "inflexible" and scolded for forcing a "high-risk vertical passing game" on the team. Informed of that Internet commentary, Billick offered a damned-if-he-does, damned-if-he-doesn't shrug yesterday.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Despite all the evidence to the contrary, the Minnesota Vikings insisted it wasn't as easy as it looked yesterday.The Vikings seemed to be in cruise control as they jumped to a 17-0 lead and routed the outmanned Arizona Cardinals, 41-21, to advance to the NFC title game next Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.They're now one victory away from their first Super Bowl appearance in 22 years and the fifth in the history of the franchise.Minnesota is good enough to make a hero out of Ravens castoff Leroy Hoard, who became the first Viking to score three touchdowns in a playoff game.

The only thing left for the Ravens is jockeying for a draft pick in the top 10.Before their embarrassing 38-28 loss to the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, either someone forgot to tell the Ravens they were playing the NFC's best team, or maybe they just didn't care. On an evening when the Ravens had to be perfect, they were far from it, committing six turnovers for 26 Vikings points and a 35-14 Minnesota lead after three quarters.Who fumbled? Corey Harris. Jim Harbaugh. Eric Green. Priest Holmes twice.
