One Ten Pro Bowl-related notes: Frank Gore -- The 49ers running back has an NFC-best 1,491 rushing yards, and the Arizona Cardinals' Edgerrin James said Gore should eventually be among the top-paid backs in the league. "[The 49ers] need to take super good care of him because he's their offense," James said. Two University of Miami -- Six former Hurricanes - Gore, Ravens safety Ed Reed, Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey, Bears kick returner Devin Hester and Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson - were selected, more than from any other school.

SAN DIEGO -- Free safety Dexter Jackson resides in the third tier of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense, the level that falls behind the high-priced, outspoken Pro Bowl players (Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch) and the secondary playmakers (Simeon Rice, Ronde Barber). Yesterday, though, in Tampa Bay's 48-21 blowout win over the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, Jackson proved as important to the Bucs' defense as anyone. Jackson intercepted Rich Gannon twice in the first half, setting the tone for what would be the longest day of the season for the league's Most Valuable Player.

Marshall Faulk's position is running back, but that's a loose definition of his value to the St. Louis Rams' offense. He is, more accurately, a play-maker out of the backfield, whether it's running to daylight or catching passes. The Rams like to send Faulk in motion to isolate him against a slower, less agile linebacker. And they like to get the ball to him in space -- away from those burly defensive bodies -- where he can utilize his speed and quickness. If the Rams can do that in Super Bowl XXXIV against the Tennessee Titans, they will have little difficulty moving the ball.

After surrendering an 18-point lead against the visiting McDonogh boys basketball team last night, No. 17-ranked St. Frances appeared destined to repeat a sour pattern. For a team that hadn't scored back-to-back wins since early January, however, a 47-43 comeback win against the No. 15 Eagles at the University of Baltimore was particularly sweet. Trailing by three points late in the game, St. Frances (15-8 overall, 8-5 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference)

Arizona (3-7) at Philadelphia (7-4) Time: 1 p.m. Line: Eagles by 7. Vs. spread: Cardinals 3-7; Eagles 6-3. Series: Cardinals lead 51-49-5. Last meeting: Eagles won, 33-14, on Oct. 15 at Arizona. Outlook: The Eagles have an outside shot at the NFC East title, so this game, along with meetings against Cleveland and Cincinnati, is one of three they have no excuse for losing. The Cardinals are playing better under new coach Dave McGinnis, but he acknowledges that his injury-beset club lacks the talent to compete with better teams.

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

TAMPA, Fla. - Save the "Happy New Year" wishes for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They would certainly prefer that December not end so soon. With a 22-10 win last night over the Ravens, the Buccaneers all but clinched a playoff spot and continued their habit of salvaging seasons in the final month. Under coach Tony Dungy the team is 13-1 in December at home, and 10-0 at Raymond James Stadium. "Big games count double in December," Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks said. "We believe in defending our home turf and we did it tonight once again."
