EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- There can be no three-peat until there is a repeat.The New York Giants, who lost to the two-time defending champion San Francisco 49ers earlier this season, will get another shot at the 49ers after they routed the Chicago Bears, 31-3, in a National Football Conference divisional playoff yesterday at Giants Stadium.The Giants (14-3) will meet the 49ers (15-2) on Sunday at Candlestick Park in the NFC championship game (4 p.m.). The Giants lost, 7-3, to San Francisco on Dec. 3 in a game many of the New York players said they should have won."

The worst news the NFC could hear is coming out of Green Bay this week. The Packers' defense is back at Super Bowl-like efficiency, and that is ominous for the rest of the conference."

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.

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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The scoreboard flashed one story, the medical report another.The Philadelphia Eagles won a game yesterday, Rich Kotite's first as head coach, 20-3, over the Green Bay Packers.But they lost a quarterback, Kotite's best, Randall Cunningham, who tore two ligaments in his left knee.A preliminary diagnosis by team physician Vincent DiStefano revealed that Cunningham had torn the medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments of the knee."At this point, the tears look complete," DiStefano said.

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.
