Minnesota (7-1) at Green Bay (3-5) Time: 9 tonight, chs. 2, 7. Line: Vikings by 3 1/2 . Vs. spread: Vikings 5-3; Packers 1-7. Series: Vikings lead 39-37-1. Last meeting: Vikings won, 24-20, on Dec. 12, 1999, at Minnesota. Outlook: Minnesota not only lost its chance for an unbeaten season last week, but the Vikings were stomped in the process, 41-13, by Tampa Bay. This is a great rebound game, in prime time, where WR Randy Moss loves to shine. The injury-riddled Packers have been competitive this season but have come up short in furious fourth quarters against the New York Jets, Chicago, Detroit and Miami.

Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.Line: Packers by 3 1/2 .Vs. spread: Packers 4-2; Steelers 3-4.Outlook: Is the Pack really back to its Super Bowl best? Not quite. QB Brett Favre is still throwing the ball away too much, and RB Travis Jervey needs to prove that he's the answer to Green Bay's problems with the running game. The illusions may have finally run out for the Steelers, who have been near the top of the AFC Central all year despite a horrendous offensive season. But their next three games are Green Bay, at Tennessee and Jacksonville, a stretch that could obliterate Pittsburgh's playoff hopes.

Nice guys may not always finish last, but they don't last too long as NFL coaches. That seemed to be the message yesterday when two nice guys with reputations of being players' coaches, Pete Carroll of New England and Ray Rhodes of Green Bay, were fired after missing the playoffs with 8-8 records. Meanwhile, Bill Belichick, the ultimate disciplinarian who managed to alienate not only the players but the fans in his previous head coaching job in Cleveland, was elevated to New York Jets head coach when Bill Parcells resigned.

Packers' Sprint PassThe formation: Split backfield, pro left, because tight end Mark Chmura (89) is lined up on the left side.The action: On the snap of the ball, the offensive linemen and Chmura lock into their pass-protection sets. Wide receiver Robert Brooks (87), split wide right, runs a 10-yard comeback rout while Antonio Freeman (86), who is slot right, runs a short out pattern to the spot where Brooks has vacated, and halfback Dorsey Levens (25) runs a trailer route off Freeman.

It is more glamorous to have a quick-strike passing game in the NFL, but the surest path to victory is traveled on the ground.That indisputable fact was apparent once again in Week 5.No fewer than 12 of the 22 teams that played on Sunday failed to rush for 100 net yards. Ten of the 12 lost.Of the 10 teams that went over the century mark, nine won. San Diego, which had the third-best rushing total of the day (152 yards) in a loss in Indianapolis, was the lone exception.That's why the New York Giants are struggling to regain their 1997 form -- they can no longer run the ball.

Ever since the 1998 NFL schedule was released last spring, the Ravens have been pointing to one date -- the season opener on Sept. 6, the day Pittsburgh will help christen the team's Camden Yards stadium.But don't think the players have failed to notice what's on the rest of the plate. You want to see a parade of the league's more dynamic running backs? How about some of the cream of this year's draft? Just follow the Ravens."We've got some people to buckle up for," middle linebacker Ray Lewis said.
