A year ago, Mark Brunell appeared to be at the end of his NFL career. After coming to the Washington Redskins in 2004, Brunell had lost his starting job to Patrick Ramsey midway through that season and, from the looks of things, many of the skills that had led to three Pro Bowl invitations in nine years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Season opener Vikings@Redskins, Monday, 7 p.m., ESPN, 1430 AM Line: Redskins by 4 1/2

Monday night's meeting between the Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars marks the first time in three years that the teams will clash. But it wasn't always like that. From 1996 to 2001, the Ravens and Jaguars tangled twice a season as members of the AFC Central. Over that span, Jacksonville won the first eight meetings before the Ravens spun off four consecutive victories. The Jaguars captured division titles in 1998 and 1999, but it was the Ravens who won the Super Bowl in 2000.

Former Ravens coach Brian Billick is expected to interview for the Buffalo Bills' head coaching job, Yahoo Sports reported Saturday. The report attributes the information to three unnamed sources and quotes Billick as saying he had not had any contact "so far" with the Bills. Billick, who led the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory in 2001, is currently a Fox Sports football analyst. The interview would be Billick's first for a head coaching job since the Ravens fired him after the 2007 season.

Jaguars' Y-in, Z-optionFormation: Pro right, one-back set.The action: At the snap, the offensive linemen lock into their pass-protection sets. Tight end Pete Mitchell (83), split wide left, and receiver Jimmy Smith (82), split right, run out-and-up routes and fullback Daimon Shelton (31) runs a flare to the left. Tight end Damon Jones (88), lined up on the right, runs a 12-yard curl route, but at the same time slot receiver Keenan McCardell (87) runs and breaks off Jones after 5 yards, hoping to get a pick.

The formation: Pro left, offset I.The action: At the snap, both receivers take inside releases to make it look like a pass, then block off the cornerbacks. Tight end Pete Mitchell (83) blocks the back-side end while right tackle Leon Searcy seals off the outside linebacker and right guard Brian DeMarco blocks the defensive tackle who is lined head up. Center Quentin Neujahr and left guard Ben Coleman double up on the defensive tackle, then Coleman scrapes off to block the inside linebacker.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The season-long clamoring by fans and critics for the Washington Redskins to change quarterbacks finally became a reality yesterday, when coach Joe Gibbs announced that Jason Campbell would take over for Mark Brunell this Sunday at Tampa Bay. The move followed another disappointing performance by the 3-6 Redskins and Brunell, who completed 16 of 31 passes for a measly 132 yards in a 27-3 loss at Philadelphia. Brunell threw one intercception, which was returned for a 70-yard touchdown.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have selective memories when it comes to last season's trip to Giants Stadium. Some, like left guard Randy Thomas and quarterback Mark Brunell, can replay every disaster that the team encountered en route to an embarrassing 36-0 defeat. Redskins@Giants Today, 1 p.m., chs. 45, 5, 1430 AM Line: Giants by 4 1/2 Keys to the Game Manning on his way, but is he there yet? Eli Manning, the Giants' third-year quarterback, is still prone to mistakes. He threw three interceptions against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 and has five for the season.

A summary of the Washington Redskins' 31-15 win over the Houston Texans: WHAT WENT RIGHT -- The offense that looked anemic through four preseason losses and two regular-season defeats finally emerged. Quarterback Mark Brunell set an NFL single-game record with 22 straight completions, and running backs Ladell Betts and Clinton Portis combined for 210 rushing yards and three touchdowns. WHAT WENT WRONG --Not much, but the defense still has a problem giving up big plays -- wide receiver Andre Johnson had a 53-yard catch and run that led to a touchdown on Houston's opening possession -- and the Redskins continue to have problems getting penalized, with 12 for 126 yards.

For the first time since he became one of the NFL's top receivers, there were questions surrounding Jimmy Smith this preseason. Smith, the cornerstone of the Jacksonville Jaguars' passing game the past five years, had two off-season abdominal operations that hospitalized him for a total of 35 days. He lost 20 pounds but gained it back shortly before training camp. If Smith can regain his form - the one he used to lead the league with 450 catches for 6,599 yards the past five years - the season may not be as long as many are predicting it will be for the Jaguars.

One concern heading into this season was how the small Ravens cornerbacks would hold up against bigger receivers. After the San Diego Chargers put up 436 passing yards by using their size against the Ravens, some fans have begun to panic about cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Domonique Foxworth. But history suggests the Ravens will bounce back. The previous two biggest passing games against the Ravens - Vinny Testaverde's 481 yards and Mark Brunell's 386 yards - came in 2000, when they had one of the best defenses in NFL history.

ASHBURN, Va. -- In other years, Redskins Park might have had a different feel than it did yesterday heading into Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field. Maybe it was the Indian summer weather that made it seem more like August than nearly November. Or the fact that the Washington Redskins were coming off a bye week and the three straight defeats that preceded it. After watching some of the upsets that occurred Sunday, Redskins receiver Santana Moss is hoping that his 2-5 team can do something similar against the suddenly revived Cowboys, 35-14 winners at Carolina on Sunday night.

BreakdownThe formation: The formation is pro left because tight end Derek Brown (86) lines up on the left. Fullback Le'Shai Maston (35) lines up 3-5 yards behind the right tackle, and running back James Stewart (33) is 7 yards directly behind quarterback Mark Brunell (8). Wide receiver Jimmy Smith (82) is split right and fellow receiver Keenan McCardell (87) is opposite left.The play: Most teams usually run this play to the strong side, or where the tight end lines up, but Jacksonville is different.
