CHICAGO (3-7) AT ATLANTA (8-2)Time: 1: 01 p.m.Line: Falcons by 11.Vs. spread: Bears 6-4; Falcons 8-2.Outlook: With Erik Kramer at quarterback, the Bears are a legitimate team. OK, so Kramer isn't about to lead them to the Super Bowl, or even the playoffs. But if he can play -- he's questionable with shoulder trouble -- Chicago can challenge good teams. With Steve Stenstrom in his place, the Bears might as well be a bye. And if they have to use rookie Moses Moreno, well. If the Falcons look lost, it's because they've never been here before, 8-2 and looking back at the 49ers in the NFC West.

PHILADELPHIA -- This was quite a coming-out party, in front of Dan, Al, Frank and a national television audience.Quarterback Randall Cunningham, who had roused suspicion that he was finished with a shaky preseason and a paranoid season opener, was near his old form last night in leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a 30-22 win over the Chicago Bears at Veterans Stadium.Cunningham, 31, seldom threw deep, and he didn't leap over any defenders in a single bound, but he looked cool and comfortable in the Eagles short drop-back, quick-release offense.

PONTIAC, Mich. -- They don't resent each other, and they don't resent the media. They resent the coach. Let's get that straight. Andre Ware, Rodney Peete and Erik Kramer, the three quarterbacks on this odd little merry-go-round in silver and blue stretch uniforms. Point the finger at one man: Detroit Lions coach Wayne Fontes.In this way, they are no different than most American workers. They blame the boss.And, like most workers, they have to bite their tongue and keep it to themselves.Andre Ware played all day Sunday in the win over Phoenix at the Silverdome.

If only the Dallas Cowboys had showed up.When they didn't, showing little of the resolve that carried them into the second round of the NFC playoffs, the Lions turned the anticipated tossup into a 38-6 blowout before 78,290 fans who got louder as the game wore on.The victory, the Lions' seventh in a row, moved them into...

And they're feeble.But the Detroit Lions are still nobody's pushovers.And now they're just one step away from the Super Bowl.The Lions defied the logic of the experts and the smugness of the Dallas Cowboys as they hammered out a 38-6 victory yesterday in their NFC divisional playoff game before 78,290 at the Silverdome.The win sends the Lions into the NFC championship game next Sunday at RFK Stadium -- where they have never won -- against the Washington Redskins, who beat them 45-0 in the season opener.

WASHINGTON -- You don't explain seasons like this one, except that the Redskins have them every couple of years when the guys get higher than the national debt and everything seems to come together.It looked pretty easy yesterday, but that can't surprise anyone. Detroit was here before, remember? A hint: The score was Redskins 45, Detroit 0. I don't care if Barry Sanders wasn't there. What's he gonna do, score seven touchdowns?In yesterday's game, in the second half, Sanders, the NFL's greatest back, was two carries for minus-1 yard.

HERNDON, Va. -- Don't expect Erik Kramer to go out to dinner with Tony Casillas any time soon.Kramer, the Detroit Lions' quarterback, is annoyed at Casillas, who's now with the Dallas Cowboys, for calling him a "scab" last week because he played on the Atlanta replacement team in 1987 when Casillas was walking the picket line.Kramer said he thought Casillas was a friend of his after the strike."Casillas had me over to dinner to watch the Super Bowl that year. I guess he really does have rocks for brains," he said.
