Time: 9 TV: Chs. 2, 7 Line: Patriots by 7 1/2 Skinny: The Raiders' upgraded offense gets the Patriots' revamped defense as an opening-night test. WR Randy Moss and RB LaMont Jordan (Maryland) give Oakland a double threat. The Patriots play without ILBs Tedy Bruschi and Ted Johnson for the first time, a circumstance Jordan may be able to exploit. They have plenty of cornerbacks this year, however. While Oakland can be expected to score, the Patriots should be able to score more after essentially saving their vets for the regular season.

Unable to strike a deal with Jamal Lewis over the weekend, the Ravens have expanded their free-agent running back search. The Ravens contacted the agents for Corey Dillon and Chris Brown yesterday, although they are continuing to negotiate with Lewis. It is still believed that the Ravens' preference is to re-sign Lewis, but they don't want to be left without an experienced running back in what has become a dwindling free-agent market.

While there has been no such concession from team officials, Oakland Raiders running back LaMont Jordan (Maryland) has acknowledged that his 2006 season is over, ended by the torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee, an injury suffered last week according to an ESPN.com report. Jordan told the Contra Costa (Calif.) Times that his focus now is on rehabilitating for the 2007 season. The acknowledgement confirms what league sources and people close to Jordan have hinted much of the week.

COLLEGE PARK -- For Maryland, the view of a crushing 34-30 loss to Virginia yesterday will leave an indelible impression on anybody who was associated with this football game.Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden nearly broke down twice while delivering his post-game talk.Junior tailback LaMont Jordan, whose school-record 306 rushing yards were wiped out by a Virginia touchdown pass in the last half-minute, was sobbing as he left the Byrd Stadium field."This is the most devastating loss I've ever been involved in," said Vanderlinden, whose coaching career dates to 1978 and includes a Rose Bowl loss to Southern California and a Citrus Bowl loss to Tennessee while an assistant at Northwestern.

1. How will the Terps handle life after LaMont Jordan? For four seasons, Maryland's offense had a go-to guy in running back LaMont Jordan, who set school records in career rushing yards, rushing attempts and 100-yard games. With Jordan now in the NFL with the New York Jets, Maryland turns to running back by committee, including Marc Riley, Chris Downs, Bruce Perry and Jason Crawford. Riley, a senior and the most experienced, carried six times for 15 yards last year. 2. Is senior quarterback Shaun Hill the answer?

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden spoke yesterday of his team's renewed concentration, evident to him since a disappointing loss several weeks ago. In the past two weeks, Vanderlinden said he was encouraged by his 3-4 team's effort in a 35-14 loss to fifth-ranked Clemson, then happy about a 37-7 win over winless Wake Forest. This was in contrast to his disappointment after the Oct. 7 Virginia game, a 31-23 loss wherein the final score covered up Maryland's 28-10 first-half deficit.

COLLEGE PARK -- Randall Jones said yesterday he is through playing musical chairs with his football career at Maryland."I'm not moving again," Jones said yesterday after his first day of practice at strong safety following his move from quarterback. "I have a lot better chance at going a lot further [in the pros] at safety than at quarterback because of my size [6 feet 2, 212] and speed [state high school hurdles champion]."In a little more than one year, the sophomore from Thomas Johnson High in Frederick has gone from free safety to quarterback to strong safety.

COLLEGE PARK - Under normal circumstances, it would be a big deal to replace a player like LaMont Jordan. It was Jordan, now with the New York Jets, who set nearly every pertinent rushing record for the Maryland football team. It's just that his production didn't do much for the program, which only won 15 games in Jordan's four years (despite his 4,147 career yards) and hasn't seen a bowl game since 1990. That may explain why finding the next great back is not the main issue. The Maryland coaching staff has to do it, obsession or not. The matter isn't trifling, as the running game is a major part of new coach Ralph Friedgen's offense.

The Oakland Raiders fired coach Norv Turner yesterday after consecutive losing seasons in which the team managed only one victory in its division. Turner, 53, who had a year remaining on his contract worth about $1.75 million, had known his job was in jeopardy for the past two months after struggling to get the most out of star receiver Randy Moss and an offense that also included quarterback Kerry Collins, receiver Jerry Porter and running back LaMont...

It's all good in March. Free agency washes over the NFL like a fresh coat of acrylic this time of year. It's not until August or September that flaws show through and reality separates winners from losers. In early bursts, the Dallas Cowboys filled a gaping hole at cornerback (Anthony Henry), the Ravens solved a riddle at wide receiver (Derrick Mason) and the Oakland Raiders added power (running back LaMont Jordan) to their deep-strike offense (receiver Randy Moss). Good moves all. Elsewhere, Rome burned.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The New York Jets did not heed the two-minute warning. They threw caution to the wind. More accurately, they left it up to a running back, LaMont Jordan, to throw the ball into the wind. The plan blew up on them. Leading the Ravens 14-0 late in the first half yesterday and about to score again, the Jets inexplicably called a halfback option play at the Baltimore 17. On the first play after the two-minute warning - which unfortunately for the Jets did not come equipped with an alarm buzzer and a flashing sign that said, "Don't Get Greedy" - Jordan, a former Maryland star, took a handoff from quarterback Quincy Carter and ran right with three choices: keep running, throw to fullback Jerald Sowell or any other receiver in the end zone, or throw the ball away.
