The AFC North is starting to become a great division for quarterback play. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton made a name for himself as a rookie last season, and Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden was impressive Thursday night, completing 25 of 52 passes for 320 yards and a touchdown. If the Browns had better receivers and players who could hold onto the ball, they might have upset the Ravens. Before the game, the Browns had dropped 11 passes in the first three games and they added at least another three or four Thursday night.  This Weeden kid played well and showed a lot of poise. Combined with Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and the Ravens' Joe Flacco, there could be some good shootouts coming up.

Last year, the Ravens went into Cincinnati, beat the Bengals and clinched an AFC North title on the season's final weekend. This season, it doesn't appear that they'll have to wait that long. In fact, they may not even have to wait beyond this weekend. A Ravens victory over the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, coupled by a Bengals loss against the San Diego Chargers, would give the Ravens their second straight AFC North crown. Following their thrilling 16-13 overtime victory over the Chargers yesterday, the Ravens sit at 9-2 for just the second time in team history.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Communications Satellite Corp. said yesterday it plans to consolidate two Clarksburg-based divisions to form a new business unit, a move that will eliminate up to 300 jobs.Washington-based Comsat said the reductions will be achieved through a combination of early retirement, attrition and layoffs. Those reductions will come almost exclusively from Comsat's Systems Division and its labs, the two Montgomery County units being consolidated.Bruce Crockett, Comsat Corp. president and chief executive officer, said the company would attempt to keep layoffs to a minimum, but he acknowledged that the number could reach 200 or more.

For sheer chaos, which would you rather attend, a White House staff meeting or a major-league owners' meeting?The White House rated the edge, until the owners rolled out their new expanded playoff format, then retreated faster than you can say, "gays in the military."Maybe you missed Plan A, a typical owners' creation, which is to say, a total disaster.For one ridiculous day, it appeared the first-place team in each division would play the second-place team in a best-of-five series starting in 1994.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The National Collegiate Athletic Association convention ended yesterday on the friendliest note imaginable.Delegates from Division I-A schools presented Division III colleagues with a legislative gift.Division III returned the courtesy, supporting a rules change that Division I-A wanted badly.It was a case study in the back-scratching and arm-twisting that drives NCAA convention business. More important to the divisions involved, it worked.Division III hasn't had a bigger victory.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me. I feel as though I've still got plenty of gas in the tank.

DETROIT -- Buck Showalter has played postseason chess several times before, and like most participants as confident as he is, he has lost more times than not. But in the Orioles' triumphant American League Division Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the manager pulled all the right strings. Before the Orioles' series-clinching Game 3 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon, he switched the rotation, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start. And down to the final two outs, he veered from the unconventional, putting the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth with an intentional walk before allowing closer Zach Britton to finish a three-game sweep of the Tigers.

DETROIT -- The Orioles sprayed beer and champagne at each other for the second time this season, but it was almost like they were going through the motions after Sunday's heart-stopping victory over the Detroit Tigers propelled them into the American League Championship Series. Their division title celebration was more intense because it was the culmination of a terrific regular season. This time, there was the sense in the visitors' clubhouse at Comerica Park that the postseason had only just begun.

It was incorrectly reported in yesterday's editions of The Sun that the Baltimore Skipjacks will face each member of the Atlantic Division of the American Hockey League four times next season. In fact, the Skipjacks will face each member of the Atlantic Division -- except St. John's -- two times. They will face St. John's four times.The Sun regrets the errors.The AHL announced last weekend that it will have three divisions for the 1991-92 season, with the Baltimore Skipjacks a member of the Southern Division.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.
