Matt Cassel, Patriots Replaces: Tom Brady (knee) Faces: Jets at Meadowlands Prognosis: Let the rest of the AFC East gloat. If Cassel couldn't play, the Patriots would have dumped him already. He won't produce Brady-like plays, but the former Southern California quarterback will be competent. Kerry Collins, Titans Replaces: Vince Young (knee) Faces: Bengals in Cincinnati Prognosis: If it wasn't Young's knee, it would be his head that sent him to the sideline. Collins won't run like Young, but he'll pass better.

SAN FRANCISCO - They say comatose patients can still hear, that people in the room with them should never stop talking. The New York Giants, up by 24 late in the third quarter of yesterday's NFC wild-card game, talked trash. The San Francisco 49ers, with their vital signs apparently flatlined, got it loud and clear, kept talking to each other and kept their cool. "I heard somebody ask who could make a play," 49ers receiver Terrell Owens said of the team's determination as the clock ran down.

ANOTHER RUSE has been perpetrated on the city of Baltimore: Kyle Boller will lead the Ravens to the Super Bowl. Kind of like Miguel Tejada, Javy Lopez and Rafael Palmeiro were going to lead the Orioles to wild-card contention -- if Boston collapsed and the American League West beat itself silly. I recall a hopeful spring moment when an Orioles official said it was possible that trade-deadline deals could be made to improve the Orioles for the second half. Welcome, Jason Grimsley, who is old enough to wear Deion Sanders' No. 37 jersey.

Already this season, Jeff Garcia has reaffirmed the genius of Bill Walsh, reinvented the San Francisco 49ers as Super Bowl contenders and rendered Doug Flutie the other quarterback from the Canadian Football League. Not bad for a quarterback no one wanted out of San Jose State in 1994, and who was barely acknowledged by the NFL after a Grey Cup championship four years later. On Sunday in St. Louis, Garcia will attempt to take his unlikely success story to a new high when he tries to out-duel Kurt Warner and the Rams.

PHILADELPHIA -- The immediate reaction, of course, was a roar of joy exploding from the Lincoln Financial Field crowd, as Terrell Owens ran through Gary Baxter, past Ed Reed and across the goal line for his team's only touchdown in yesterday's Eagles-Ravens grudge match. The roar lasted through the beginning of the dance -- and then it paused for a moment as nearly 68,000 onlookers tried to interpret Owens' moves. Then, as they collectively began to recognize the thrown clump of turf, the twitching, sliding and thrusting, a second wave of adulation rolled through the stadium and washed over the triumphant T.O. Adulation, blended with a healthy dose of ridicule.

The Ravens didn't just win the Super Bowl last season, they broke the mold on how to do it. Their success proved a big-play quarterback wasn't a necessity, that ferocious defense, superb special teams and a running game were sufficient to the cause. A lot of teams bought into that concept this season, especially in the AFC. The NFC features prolific quarterbacks - the St. Louis Rams' Kurt Warner, Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre, San Francisco 49ers' Jeff Garcia - while the AFC features defense and running games, with just a few notable exceptions.

After a couple of seasons of waffling between quarterbacks, never completely backing either one of them, Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis was definitive when discussing the promise of Jeff Garcia, who stands to be his team's signal caller the next four years. "One of the things we wanted to try to do in the offseason was solidify the quarterback situation," Davis said. "When Jeff became available, we felt like it really was a good move for our football team. He brought leadership, he brought some charisma and a proven performer who had won. He has at least met, if not exceeded, all our expectations."

Undermined by key injuries and bad quarterbacks, the NFL endured a blight of inept offense in Week 7.No fewer than eight teams failed to score an offensive touchdown. Six teams lost by 21 points or more. And four teams had 12 first downs or fewer.The lowlights:The Carolina Panthers ran 12 plays over five series inside the Detroit Lions' 5-yard line, but they came away with only three field goals and two turnovers in a 24-9 loss at home. The Panthers' best runner, Tshimanga Biakabutuka (nine rushes, 10 yards)
