OAKLAND, Calif. - The last time the Ravens were held without a sack before yesterday's 20-12 loss to the Oakland Raiders was just two games ago. It was a fact lost on Ravens coach Brian Billick when he was asked that particular question at his post-game news conference. "I don't know. You're the writer, so you look it up," Billick said. It is understandable why Billick would not remember. Considering the amount of pressure the Ravens put on the Cincinnati Bengals last week (six sacks)

Rick Mirer knew about the expectations.Play quarterback at a major university, and expectations are high. Play quarterback at Notre Dame and they go through the roof, or, in this case, the Golden Dome.Mirer knew because he grew up 40 miles from South Bend, Ind. He was an All-American quarterback at Goshen (Ind.) High, the most sought-after scholastic quarterback in the country in 1988.Four years later, he is either first or second in all the significant Notre Dame passing categories. He is a team captain.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Ravens got beat by a No. 3 quarterback named Rick Mirer. We thought he was selling cars, insurance or cigars, but yesterday he helped light up the Ravens. This one is going to be tough to get over. The Ravens got beat by Mirer, a big-time bust out of Notre Dame. What happened in the Oakland Raiders' shocking 20-12 win over the Ravens yesterday? The new Ravens looked a lot like the old Ravens, the team that struggled before a recent three-game winning streak. They gave up 10 points on two turnovers, had eight penalties for 55 yards, dropped a couple of passes, quarterback Anthony Wright had problems, Lamont Brightful fumbled two punts and the offensive play-calling was questionable again, not just like it was earlier in the season, but seemingly forever.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- With Notre Dame entering the game averaging about 11 pass completions a game, Navy coach George Chaump decided to play a hunch: cut off the dominating Irish running game and hope not to get beaten through the air.Navy did a pretty good job of holding Notre Dame's rushing offense to 180 yards, 115 yards below the Irish's average. But Notre Dame quarterback Rick Mirer made the Midshipmen pay big as -- despite winds gusting at more than 30 mph -- he threw for a career-high 303 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-0 Irish rout before a sellout crowd of 59,075 at Notre Dame Stadium.

SEATTLE -- Even though caffeine flows like water in this techno-charged, java-crazed city, the Philadelphia Eagles somehow missed their morning coffee.While Philadelphia was rubbing sleep from its eyes, the Seattle Seahawks bolted to a 14-0 lead and held on for a rather simple 26-14 victory over the listless Eagles at the Kingdome yesterday."We were flat," Eagles coach Ray Rhodes said. "I don't know why, but we came out here without a lot of intensity. This team can't afford to play that way."

EastBarring a stunning turnaround, the Rick Mirer era is unlikely to last much longer for the New York Jets. After scoring a touchdown in 44 consecutive games coming into the season, the Jets have gone without a touchdown in two of Mirer's four starts at quarterback. And in 47 possessions, he has produced just five touchdowns. After being criticized for conservative play-calling in an abysmal 16-6 loss to Jacksonville, coach Bill Parcells complained that Mirer didn't take advantage of a half-dozen chances to throw deep.
