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.

Pro football tends to be an organization game.The stable, well-run organizations with a plan and a philosophy tend to be winners -- such as Green Bay, San Francisco, Denver and Pittsburgh.Then there are the Minnesota Vikings. They seem intent on proving a little turmoil -- or maybe even a lot of it -- isn't a bad thing. In their case, it might have been a plus.The Vikings were in chaos much of the off-season. Nobody even knew who was going to own the team. When Tom Clancy's bid was accepted in February, president Roger Headrick tried to get the right to match it.Commissioner Paul Tagliabue spent weeks before rejecting Headrick's bid, but then Clancy withdrew because of financing problems.

PHILADELPHIA -- This team isn't his anymore, at least not for a while, and Randall Cunningham knows it. Late Sunday afternoon, he was the calm amid the customary post-victory whirl in the Philadelphia Eagles' locker room. There were several moments after the game when it appeared that Cunningham was alone with his thoughts and his crutches. Bad wheel, fifth wheel.We have known, of course -- ever since they took the knife to Cunningham's left knee nearly three weeks ago -- that his season was over.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Who said Ray Handley has no sense of humor?Handley, the first-year New York Giants coach, normally is as stoic as Gary Cooper. Every word he utters -- at least in the presence of reporters -- is measured, as if he is visualizing how his quotes will read on an opponent's bulletin board. This is no Buddy Ryan, randomly tossing off one-liners that serve to enrage the other side.So, in typical Handley fashion, he gave a non-inflammatory response to a suggestion that tomorrow night's game with the Eagles in Veterans Stadium figures to be markedly different from those that have taken place the past three seasons.

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.

PHILADELPHIA -- Randall Cunningham is a jazz riff come to life. The rest of the National Football League pounds along to a head-banging, rock-and-roll beat. Cunningham skips and darts, stops and starts, goes up, down and all around. He is a ghost in the machine, the definition of improvisation. "Sometimes," Everson Walls was saying yesterday, "you can get mesmerized watching him."The Philadelphia Eagles have him on their side, and, brother, are they fortunate. They are a bratty, mediocre lot given to making bold pronouncements that, if not for Cunningham, would never stand up on Sunday.

Randall Cunningham can see the ways things are changing in the NFL these days.He knows this is a dangerous time to be a 31-year-old, injury-prone pro football player with a big contract who has had only one playoff victory.Entering his 10th season, Cunningham knows he may need to have a big season if he's going to attain his goal of finishing his career with the Philadelphia Eagles."I'm happy here," Cunningham said. "I don't want to go anywhere else. I feel in my heart that I've become part of Philadelphia."

There will be at least three quarterback changes in the NFL this week, but there is really only one quarterback controversy.The controversy is in -- where Notebookelse? -- Philadelphia, where Eagles coach Rich Kotite's decision to return to Randall Cunningham after a week of Jim McMahon did nothing to calm the controversy that has been front page news.Cunningham did his best to fan the flames this week when he said he didn't want to be yanked again."If they want to put in Jim, that's their decision.

HERNDON, Va. -- Charles Mann, who sacks and hurries quarterbacks for a living, sounded like a radio sports show host."Randall Cunningham is the Eagles' leading rusher," he said, "with 942 yards."On the money. Not 941 yards, not 943. That is how attentive the Washington Redskins are this week to the versatility of the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback.Cunningham is in fact the fourth leading rusher in the National Football Conference. His average of 8.0 yards per carry is 2.4 yards better than Bo Jackson's, and Bo has the best average of any running back in the whole National Football League.

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.
