I can usually see ambiguity in any question, but it's pretty clear that Haloti Ngata was the Raven who most deserved a Pro Bowl selection. He had to settle for being an alternate. Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Terrell Suggs are tremendous playmakers, but without Ngata's remarkable combination of size and power in the middle, would any of them have been as clear to do their flashier work? By the way, did everyone see that video Sunday of Ngata playing rugby in high school? I hope those children who got in his way have gotten over the nightmares.

WNBA McCoughtry's 33 carry Dream past Mystics Angel McCoughtry (St. Frances) scored 33points to lead the visiting Atlanta Dream to an 86-79 victory over the Washington Mystics. Former Mystic Lindsey Harding added 14 points and Armintie Price chipped in 12 for the Dream, which scored 10 straight points down the stretch to turn a 78-76 deficit into an 86-78 lead. Sandora Irvin 's put-back off a miss by McCoughtry tied the game at 78 with just under two minutes left, and Price made a tough driving layup 30 seconds later to put Atlanta ahead for good.

COLLEGE PARK - When Kris Jenkins comes around, you feel that you're going to hear or see something interesting. That's what the Maryland football program will miss most after this defensive tackle plays his final college football home game tomorrow against Georgia Tech. No one else but Jenkins would so colorfully verbalize his team's ire when it saw Wake Forest players stomping on the M at Byrd Stadium's midfield and messing around with the turtle statue in front of the Gossett Team House.

In the NFL, the knocks don't come much harder than this: The New York Jets, playing their first game in their $1.6-billion stadium, were trailing Baltimore by a point. They had the ball with about 1Âœ minutes remaining and roughly 50 yards to go for a reasonable field goal… And their frustrated fans were heading for the exits. Who could blame those paying customers? The Jets, after crowing all offseason about their Super Bowl chances, laid a colossal egg in their debut Monday.

COLLEGE PARK - Kris "Big Dog" Jenkins is a perfectly chiseled, 6-foot-5, 292-pound senior defensive tackle for the Maryland football team. He is the strongest player overall and the second strongest pound-for-pound ever to put on a Terrapins uniform. Coaches, scouts, teammates, opponents and fans say there is no way Jenkins should ever fail on the field. If there were ever a perfect specimen to play football, Jenkins is that man. Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden has said for two years that he believes Jenkins is ready to step forward and "start barking like the incredible talent he is."

HOUSTON - There were signs all along that Kris Jenkins could be special. It was just that not many people picked up on them. Ron Vanderlinden saw those signs in 1996 when he recruited Jenkins out of Ypsilanti, Mich., first for Northwestern, then for Maryland. Dwight Galt, Maryland's strength coach, saw them after Jenkins' freshman season at Maryland in 1997, during a two-on-two pickup basketball game in Cole Field House. And the Carolina Panthers saw enough of them in Jenkins' senior season to invest a second-round pick in the 2001 NFL draft.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The New York Jets announced themselves as a legitimate contender for the AFC East crown with their victory over the New England Patriots on Nov. 13. Ten days later, they made an even bigger statement. Dominating the previously undefeated Tennessee Titans from start to finish, the Jets declared themselves an elite team in the conference with yesterday's 34-13 victory in front of a mostly somber crowd at LP Field. The Titans (10-1) hadn't lost a regular-season game since Dec. 16, 2007, in becoming the 11th team since 1970 to win its first 10 games.

For the Ravens, home is where the wins are. Since 2000, the Ravens have compiled a 49-18 record in Baltimore. Their home winning percentage of .720 ranks third behind the New England Patriots' .743 (52-18) and the Indianapolis Colts' .725 (50-19). Coming home tastes even sweeter for a team that just completed three consecutive games on the road and five of the past six away from M&T Bank Stadium. "It just feels good to not have to go get on a plane this week and get to stay at my home," linebacker Ray Lewis said.

HOUSTON - Tom Brady knew what had to be done by the Patriots" offense to win. Block the Panthers" determined defensive linemen and roving linebackers. Outmus cle and outmaneuver their defensive backs. Convert on third down to control the ball and the clock. When in the red zone, score a touchdown rather than settle for a field goal or make a costly turnover. Quite simply, do what any NFL offense usually has to do to win a game, not just last night's Super Bowl. And the Patriots did just enough for a 32-29 victory over the Carolina Panthers, their second Super Bowl triumph in three years.

Track and field Montgomery runs 9.84 in 100, tied for third fastest in history Tim Montgomery blazed to the fastest time of the year in the men's 100 meters yesterday at the Bislett Games in Oslo, Norway. Helped by a favorable tailwind, Montgomery was timed in a personal best of 9.84 seconds for a Bislett Stadium record. Montgomery's time was just .05 of a second off the world record of 9.79 fellow American Maurice Greene set two years ago in the world championships in Athens, Greece.
