NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Bledsoe: super quarterback or super hyped?Super Bowl XXXI may provide the answer."He is just a young guy coming into the league," New England Patriots coach Bill Parcells said of his starting quarterback. "We all are products of our experiences and he knows a lot more about what's on his shoulders and what he has to do now than ever before."It has been a tumultuous four-year NFL career for Bledsoe, 24, much more than he could have imagined coming out of Washington State as the No. 1 pick in the 1993 NFL draft.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Dallas Cowboys got even in Monday Night Football theatrics last night. Beaten on two late touchdown passes earlier in the season on prime time, the Cowboys scored two touchdowns 21 seconds apart to steal a 21-20 victory from the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Quarterback Drew Bledsoe threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Terry Glenn in the final three minutes, and then safety Roy Williams returned an interception of Donovan McNabb 46 yards for the go-ahead score.

S Rod Woodson vs. QB Drew Bledsoe Ravens safety Rod Woodson would love to continue his recent streak of intercepting passes. Seven times in his past nine games, Woodson has picked off an opposing quarterback. One more theft would tie Woodson's single-season career high of eight interceptions. Given the way New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe has hit a slump lately, Woodson figures to have a good chance at the mark. Bledsoe has thrown 20 interceptions in 1999, including 16 in his past seven games.

NOW THAT the New England Patriots have shown that they won't fall apart without their two Super Bowl coordinators, we can turn our attention to six intriguing questions that usher in the 2005 season: How much turmoil can the Philadelphia Eagles endure and still return to the Super Bowl? The answer almost certainly seems to be, not much more. But this is a team that came out of the Terrell Owens fiasco reasonably well, that felt enough confidence in its defensive line to release Corey Simon, and that now is working on damage control with disgruntled playmaker Brian Westbrook.

Bledsoe rolls to his right and fakes the pitch to Henry. Hoping the defense has bought the fake, Bledsoe turns around and throws a screen pass to McGahee on his left. The high throw goes through McGahee's hands and is deflected into the air by safety Chad Williams (49)

New England (3-8) at Detroit (7-4) Time: 12:30 p.m., chs. 13, 9. Line: Lions by 6. Vs. spread: Patriots 4-7, Lions 4-6. Series: Series tied 3-3. Last meeting: Patriots beat Lions, 23-17, on Sept. 25, 1997, at Detroit. Outlook: The Patriots are clearly out of the playoff picture in November for the first time since QB Drew Bledsoe's rookie year of 1993. Last week's victory over Cincinnati ended a four-game losing skid for New England. With interdivisional wins over other NFC playoff hopefuls - New Orleans, Washington and the New York Giants - Detroit is in position to make the playoffs for the third time in four years.

PITTSBURGH - The New England Patriots are heading to the big game with a big question. Who will be their starting quarterback? Tom Brady, who led the Patriots to a charmed playoff run, rolled his left ankle late in the first half and did not return. In his absence, Drew Bledsoe engineered New England's only touchdown drive in stating his case to regain a starting job lost in September because of a chest injury. "We'll take a look at Tom's situation and make an evaluation there," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.

Running backsHalfback Earnest Byner and fullback Carwell Gardner ran as well as could be expected, but coach Ted Marchibroda needs to run Gardner more, especially on quick dives on short-yardage situations, instead of sending Byner off tackle.BQuarterbackVinny Testaverde played a great game, and had only one interception. He was brilliant during the Ravens' comeback.A-ReceiversThis group appears more comfortable with the offense as the season progresses, but Derrick Alexander needs to work on his timing with Testaverde.

Seahawks (2-3) at Bills (4-1)Time: 1 p.m.Line: Bills by 8Outlook: The Bills will be without wide receiver Andre Reed, who has a pulled hamstring, but that won't be enough to help Seattle. The Raiders, using a no-huddle offense, bulldozed the Seahawks. Now Seattle takes on the NFL's no-huddle experts. The Bills also have the NFL's top-ranked defense and top-ranked pass defense. Buffalo's Jim Kelly is completing 50.7 percent of his passes; only New England's Drew Bledsoe has been worse in the AFC.Stellino's pick: Bills 28, Seahawks 14 -- Oh, no, can you imagine the Bills back in the Super Bowl?

What you saw from Foxboro, Mass., Thursday night was yet one more piece of evidence that Tom Brady - not Peyton Manning, not Steve McNair, not Brett Favre - is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. It's not a stretch any longer to make the connection. The former sixth-round draft pick of the New England Patriots has the resume to back it up. He has two Super Bowl rings (and was the youngest quarterback ever to win one). He is a two-time Most Valuable Player in the Super Bowl (one of four quarterbacks in history so honored)

ASHBURN, Va. - As long as Patrick Ramsey is healthy, he will be the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. Coach Steve Spurrier confirmed that scenario yesterday, reasserting that Tim Hasselbeck will continue to back up Ramsey, who has been playing despite an aggravation of a fractured bone in his right foot. Ramsey started in Washington's 24-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night, but left the game in the first quarter with a concussion. Despite that, Ramsey said he plans to start against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at FedEx Field at 4:05 p.m. "My expectation and my desire is to play and play for the remainder of the season," said Ramsey, who wore a protective boot on his right foot.

Spurrier revealed his quarterback's injury during his weekly news conference at Redskins Park, saying, "Patrick's got a little bone in his right foot that hurts him.

Mirage or miracle? The NFL wants to know but isn't sure. It normally takes Bill Parcells two years to reinvent a losing franchise into a playoff team. That's been his history in each of three previous coaching stops. But this year, Mr. Fix It seemingly is making the turn in record time. One month into his first season in Dallas, the Cowboys are 3-1 and leading the thorny NFC East. Parcells is doing it with a quarterback who was benched before midseason in 2002, a coaching staff that averaged a scant 5.7 years of NFL experience coming into the season, and an offense that ranked 30th and 29th the past two years.

Where was Australian Open?Who knows what happened in the 1997 Australian Open? Despite the time difference down under, many Maryland tennis fans enjoyed the Australian Open, but once again the local media coverage of a major tennis event was woefully inadequate. The Sun's coverage was limited to a few short articles, with most relegated to back pages in the Sports section. Even the Washington Post provided greater coverage than The Sun. Just compare the linage and story location. Likewise, the four local TV news stations, as usual, provided little if any coverage of the event, and if not for the ESPN channels, there would be no coverage.
