Former Baltimore Colts great Tom Matte has a feeling the Pittsburgh Steelers are up to something for tomorrow's game against the Ravens. Matte, a star running back for the great Colts teams of the 1960s and now a color commentator for the Ravens, has been besieged by calls from Pittsburgh-area radio stations this week wanting to know if Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El can do it. Randle El, like Matte before him, may be called into emergency duty...

PITTSBURGH - When the Steelers made their last successful Super Bowl run after the 2005 season, Antwaan Randle El - the multitalented wide receiver and special teams player - made a handful of key plays that propelled Pittsburgh through the postseason. But after throwing a touchdown pass in the Steelers' Super Bowl win over the Seattle Seahawks, Randle El left for the Washington Redskins as a free agent during the offseason, and the Steelers immediately moved to fill the gap with first-round draft pick Santonio Holmes.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Around Redskins Park, Antwaan Randle El is usually heard before he is seen. His loud, animated voice is often punctuated by a cackle, and his new Washington Redskins teammates have already come to appreciate the undersized wide receiver and punt returner with the oversized personality. "I don't know if anyone loves playing football more than he does," Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell said last week. Titans@Redskins Sunday, 1 p.m., Ch. 9, 1430 AM Line: Redskins by 9 1/2

Landover -- The Washington Redskins seemed to be on the brink of an early blowout victory yesterday against the Atlanta Falcons at FedEx Field. The Redskins scored on their first two possessions and had good field possession on their third. The Falcons, losers of four straight, were in free-fall. The rest of the afternoon was a bleary blur for the Redskins. If it wasn't second-year quarterback Jason Campbell showing his inexperience and being intercepted twice, once leading to Atlanta's first touchdown, then it was Falcons quarterback Michael Vick dancing through the defense or running back Jerious Norwood rumbling 69 yards for a touchdown.

Whenever a big-name return specialist has to face the Ravens, B.J. Sams knows what he will hear from his teammates. "Everybody on our team is like, `You better not let him outdo you.' So that's the thing for me to do, go out there and outplay him," Sams said. The him would be the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antwaan Randle El, who is third in the AFC with a 25.1-yard kickoff return average. Randle El also is averaging 8.0 yards a return on punts and has been featured more than usual recently as a receiver because of a hamstring injury to Plaxico Burress.

For once, they were told to keep quiet. Ravens coaches rarely ask their players to tone down the off-field chatter, but that was the declaration passed down to the secondary as the team prepared for its showdown with the AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers and their talented receivers at Heinz Field on Sunday. Apparently, the secondary has taken it to heart. About the only semi-controversial statement came in the form of a debate on whether the trio of Hines Ward, Plaxico Burress and Antwaan Randle El is the most talented in the league.

PITTSBURGH -- Charlie Batch improvised a 1-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter, and his passing led to another score before he left with a broken right hand. The Pittsburgh Steelers withstood their second quarterback injury in three weeks to beat the rival Cleveland Browns, 34-21, last night. Whatever the Steelers lack in quarterback quality -- and, with a 7-2 record that ties them with the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North lead, it's not much -- they're making up for it with depth.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Brandon Lloyd could sense it nearly from the first time he stepped onto the practice field for the Washington Redskins last spring. As much as he was bonding with new teammates Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El, there was a pervading sense of competition among the receivers. Even though Moss had established himself as Mark Brunell's favorite target last season - in reality his only reliable receiver besides tight end Chris Cooley - Lloyd believed that he and fellow newcomer Randle El were actually fighting with Moss for one of the starting jobs.

Special teams played a large part in the Ravens' upset of the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football last month. Yesterday against the Steelers, those same units put the Ravens in a first-half hole and made life easy for Pittsburgh. Coach Brian Billick repeated a barnyard epithet to explain how his offense and defense were manhandled early, and he extended the description to special teams. "On special teams," Billick said, "they also kicked the s--- out of us." The struggle started with the opening kickoff, which Matt Stover could get only to the 14-yard line.

The much-acclaimed offense that Al Saunders brought to the Washington Redskins last spring has become more scrutinized - and criticized - than many of the political and economic policies written in the nearby nation's capital. The confidence many of the players seemed to have in the offense during training camp has cooled. After last Sunday's 36-22 loss in Indianapolis, Washington (2-5) ranks 13th in the league in overall offense (325.9 yards a game), seventh in rushing (128.4) and 20th in passing (197.

Staggering along at 1-3, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in danger of becoming the 12th defending Super Bowl champion not to reach the playoffs the next season. Ben Roethlisberger is receiving much of the heat for the Pittsburgh Steelers' slow start. After posting a 27-4 record in his first two years as the starting quarterback, Roethlisberger has lost his three starts this season while posting the NFL's second-lowest quarterback rating (41.7). Roethlisberger may be feeling the effects of an offseason motorcycle accident and emergency appendectomy in early September.

No offense in the NFL got up and down the field the past five years better than the Kansas City Chiefs. No team scored more points, gained more net yards or punched up more first downs in that period. Consider that a warning for the Washington Redskins' NFC East opponents this season. Because in a year when the Dallas Cowboys gained mercurial wide receiver Terrell Owens, the Redskins signed unflappable Al Saunders, the architect of that potent Chiefs attack. Time will tell who made the better deal, but when the Redskins launch training camp today, they will feel good about their man. In Saunders, 58, they're getting one of the league's finest offensive minds.

DETROIT -- Now there can be no doubt about the Pittsburgh Steelers destiny. In a manner that defined their charmed life in the playoffs, the Steelers captured their first Super Bowl title in 26 years with a ragged, 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last night. Without much offensive punch or a dominant defensive performance, the Steelers won the franchises fifth NFL title One for the thumb, they declared in the unlikeliest of ways. They got a record 75-yard touchdown run from Willie Parker, the running back who went unnoticed all week.

Antonio Bryant brought a brash attitude into the NFL draft last April and it dumped him into the bottom of the second round. Deion Branch brought a reputation as a playmaker who played bigger than his 5-foot-9 frame and it elevated him from a fourth-round projection into the top 65. Arriving in the second round from opposite directions, these two rookies have shown once again the NFL draft is no science. They are among the headliners in the class of 2002 wide receivers that already is distinguishing itself.

All of this seemed to be too much, even for a New England Patriots team that always wins big games. The injuries. A second-half deficit. A Pittsburgh Steelers team determined to show it is now the AFC's best team. Not yet, they're not - not after giving Tom Brady and Adam Vinatieri a chance to beat them in the fourth quarter. The Patriots, badly depleted by injuries, withstood the longest scoring pass play against them in 15 years and two turnovers inside the Pittsburgh 10 to rally in the fourth quarter behind Brady, beating the Steelers, 23-20, yesterday on Vinatieri's 43-yard field goal with one second remaining.
