NEW ORLEANS - The evidence of Green Bay being a superior team was not in the final score, but by the way the Packers couldn't put the New England Patriots away until late in the game, and still come away with a 35-21 victory in Super Bowl XXXI last night at the Super Dome.The Packers weren't sharp, but still beat New England fairly covincingly. Forget about the Patriots being close, New England was only as close as the Packers would allow them until the last Drew Bledsoe interception with 1: 03 left in the game.

APPLETON, Wis. - Gordon Terpstra rattled off the topics of the latest political TV ads like a weekly shopping list he had long ago committed to memory: education, tax cuts for the richest 1 percent - and that one ad where Al Gore goes to Vietnam and then plays with his family. "I'm bored with them, totally bored with them," sighed Terpstra, a 60-year-old shop clerk from nearby Neenah. "It's the same ads, over and over and over again." Every voter in the United States can get a glimpse of the presidential candidates tonight, during their second televised debate in Winston-Salem, N.C., beginning at 9 p.m. But the residents of some unlikely targets of Election 2000's air war - from Green Bay and Appleton, Wis., to Scranton, Pa., to Flint, Mich.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Green Bay Packers spoiled the San Francisco 49ers-Dallas Cowboys NFC playoff party yesterday.The Packers made sure the 49ers didn't meet the Cowboys in the NFC championship game for the fourth straight year by stunning the 49ers, 27-17, before a record 49ers crowd of 69,311 at 3Com Park.That means the Packers will be in the NFC title game next Sunday for the first time since the 1967 Ice Bowl, against the winner of today's Dallas-Philadelphia Eagles game. Dallas would host to next week's game; Philadelphia would play at Green Bay."

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The proud San Francisco 49ers will not go down easily in their quest to annex a sixth Super Bowl championship this season.Or quietly, either, from all indications.In the locker room after their wild-card victory over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday, the 49ers began gearing up for the Green Bay Packers and today's NFC divisional playoff game at frosty Lambeau Field."If we didn't have home-field advantage, the best place we wanted to go was Green Bay because we feel we have unfinished business there," said 49ers linebacker Ken Norton.

SAN DIEGO -- A year ago, Desmond Howard gave the Green Bay Packers a decisive edge in special teams play with his slippery returns. After searching the entire season for an adequate replacement, the team has gone back to the players who handled those chores before Howard arrived -- veterans Antonio Freeman and Robert Brooks.Risky business, perhaps, to use his starting wideouts as return men, but coach Mike Holmgren wasn't disappointed -- or hurt -- with his postseason switch.In two playoff games, Freeman averaged 18 yards on three kickoff returns.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The head of the NFL champions lies uneasy today, but, as the Green Bay Packers proved yesterday, the heart is working just fine.Invoking their Lambeau Field advantage, the Packers halted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' momentum -- temporarily, at least -- with a 21-16 victory that was as shaky as Green Bay's fourth-quarter defense.The ultimate winner in the Battle of the Bays may not be decided until Dec. 7, when these teams meet again in Tampa. But for now, the Packers can take solace in dealing the Bucs (5-1)
