EastOlindo Mare, a 5-foot-10 kicker from Syracuse, is the Dolphins' most valuable player through five games. Mare has made 19 of 20 field-goal tries this season, including the past 14 in a row. He needs to make the next three to break Garo Yepremian's club record of 16, set in 1978. He also has kicked at least four field goals in four straight games, an NFL record, and leads the league in scoring. He kicked six field goals in a 31-30 win over the Patriots last week, and through three seasons with the Dolphins has converted 69-of-83 tries.

Ravens chief executive officer Art Modell plans to sell a share of the debt-laden team to a new investor.Modell said yesterday that he will hire an investment banker in the next 30 days to advise him and help procure a partner. The buyer would not acquire a controlling share of the Ravens -- which would continue to be held by Modell's wife, Patricia -- but might receive a right of first refusal in the event the team is sold, he said."I'd like somebody who's a younger age than me, who can grow with the business, grow with my son, David.

The frustrations of a losing season were beginning to break through. Only minutes after the Ravens had finished their inaugural season in Baltimore with a 24-21 loss to the Houston Oilers before 52,704 at Memorial Stadium, a couple of their players suggested a few of their teammates had quit and were not totally prepared. "There are people and players here and there that didn't look quite like they gave it their all," said Ravens receiver Michael Jackson, who had three touchdown receptions yesterday, including one of 86 yards.

Some of the Ravens have thought about being home with their families for Christmas, sitting in front of the fireplace and sipping wine. But the dreams last for only a short while. The Ravens still have one more bit of business to finish.It ends at Memorial Stadium today, when the Ravens (4-11) play the Houston Oilers (7-8) to complete their inaugural season in Baltimore."You look over the season and you're disappointed because this team has a lot of talent," said Ravens left offensive tackle Tony Jones, who has been with the organization for nine years.

This one was so ugly that even the coach could not get angry. Players lining up in the wrong formations. Receivers dropping passes. A bad snap on a punt leading to a safety. A return specialist not properly handling kickoffs. And then there was the Vinny Testaverde file: a total of three interceptions, two leading to touchdowns. One week after coach Ted Marchibroda questioned the Ravens' work ethic and veteran leadership in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Houston Oilers routed the Ravens, 29-13, yesterday before 20,082 at the Astrodome, formerly the House of Pain but now the House of Lame.
