It was just a routine play near the end of the Minnesota Vikings' 41-21 playoff victory over the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday.The Vikings were in command when they faced a third-and-three play at the Arizona 40 with 6: 19 to play.Randall Cunningham went back to pass, was flushed out of the pocket and started scrambling. It was vintage Cunningham style as he eluded Andre Wadsworth and Simeon Rice. Suddenly, he had 10 yards of open field ahead of him.Cunningham didn't run for the first down.

Free-agent quarterbacks Jeff Blake and Chris Chandler were to have decided by now. But neither has settled on a team yet, which could eventually bode well for the Ravens. Blake, according to published reports, was supposed to sign with the Washington Redskins or Buffalo Bills last week. Chandler was close to signing with the Chicago Bears as a backup to Jim Miller a few weeks ago. If either situation stretches out until June, when the Ravens are expected to get more salary cap relief, the team could make a play for one of the quarterbacks.

EAGLES (0-0) at GIANTS (0-0)Time: 1 p.m., Ch. 45Line: Giants by 3.Key injuries: Eagles: RB Charlie Garner (rib) is out; QB Randall Cunningham (elbow), CB Mark McMillian (hip) are questionable.Outlook: Dave Brown might be the least-known person ever to start at quarterback for the New York Giants. The Giants' defense might be the most vulnerable it has been since before Lawrence Taylor arrived. Randall Cunningham led the Eagles to a 4-0 start last season before missing the rest of the season with a knee injury.

When Baltimore makes its way back to Monday Night Football next week, Ravens quarterback Elvis Grbac expects to make his return, too. After sitting out the past two games with bruised ribs, Grbac indicated yesterday that he should be fully recovered when the Ravens play at Tennessee. Although he was listed as the emergency third quarterback on Sunday, he threw with authority in pre-game warm-ups and did not feel soreness afterward. "I feel pretty strong about coming back this week," Grbac said.

Ravens coach Brian Billick said he doesn't expect veteran quarterback Warren Moon to make a decision about joining the team in a backup capacity until the middle of next week.Moon's agent, Leigh Steinberg, had previously said that Moon, 42, would make his decision by the end of this week, but there was no announcement yesterday.Billick said he had spoken with Moon on Wednesday, and that the future Hall of Fame quarterback had come to grips with the fact that he might have to take a backup role around the league.

PHILADELPHIA -- For a month-to-month update on the medical progress of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham, it never was necessary to glance at his surgically repaired knee.No, all it took was a glimpse at his headgear du jour.The fashion show began not long after the former Pro Bowl quarterback was popped by Green Bay Packer Bryce Paup in the first game of the 1991 season, shredding Cunningham's left medial collateral and posterior cruciate knee ligaments.First, Cunningham limped into Veterans Stadium wearing an embroidered baseball cap reading, "I'll be back . . . scrambling."

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - One quarterback is hoping to come off the bench and the other is trying to avoid getting sent there. As the Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars seek to regain control of their seasons today, uncertainty surrounds the Jaguars' Mark Brunell and the Ravens' Elvis Grbac. While Brunell is fighting through a leg injury that sidelined him last week, Grbac is battling a brewing quarterback controversy that could put him on the sideline today. Heading into the stretch run, the desperate Jaguars need Brunell's arm and the wavering Ravens demand Grbac's focus.

Billick's stubbornness big part of Ravens' woes It is admirable that Elvis Grbac wants to shoulder all of the blame for the Ravens' inexcusable loss to the Cleveland Browns. No question, he stunk up the place and deserved every boo he received. But the true culprit in this situation is a stubborn Brian Billick and his coaches for thinking that Grbac was the only missing piece to another Super Bowl run. In a perfect world, perhaps he was. He is the prototypical NFL quarterback with mountains of physical tools and he clearly was a "technical" upgrade from Trent Dilfer.

Instead of hearing screaming fans, center Mike Flynn heard a low buzz. In their two previous games, the Ravens attempted to come from behind in hostile environments on the road. Yesterday's attempt came in a much friendlier atmosphere and concluded with two fourth-quarter touchdowns for an 18-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at PSINet Stadium. The offensive line, which yielded seven sacks last week in a loss to the Cleveland Browns, struggled early yesterday, giving up four in the first half to the Jaguars.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It may have been garbage time, but the two fourth-quarter touchdown drives yesterday still felt good to Randall Cunningham, the Ravens' backup quarterback. Cunningham, replacing starter Elvis Grbac, who suffered a concussion, led the Ravens on back-to-back scoring drives that cut the Green Bay Packers' lead to the final score of 31-23. On the second, Cunningham ran it in from 11 yards out. "It keeps me confident knowing that I can still do what I've always been capable to do when given the chance," Cunningham said.

Overconfident, or weakness exposed? That will be one of the major themes for the Ravens' No. 2-ranked defense entering Sunday's game against Jacksonville.Defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis says his team wasn't talking a lot of trash after earning the No. 1 ranking a week ago, but was just overconfident.That's a matter of semantics, but here's the bottom line: The Bengals lit up the Ravens for 348 total yards and had two long drives in the second half as the then-No. 1-ranked defense couldn't protect a 17-point lead.

ST. LOUIS -- Ever since the Ravens hired Brian Billick in January, he has displayed all the characteristics of a high-quality head coach. He is disciplined, a motivator and organized almost to a fault, and he communicates well with players.His charisma and articulation have played well in the community, increasing permanent seat license sales by nearly 3,000 for a franchise that has only won 16 games in three previous seasons.But as the Ravens travel to the Trans World Dome today to open the 1999 season against the St. Louis Rams, a city that has been starved for winning football for more than a decade will get to see if Billick can match strategies every Sunday with the Bill Parcells, Jimmy Johnsons and Mike Holmgrens.
