Feeling the heat Browns coach Romeo Crennel looked like he might weather the storm in Cleveland with Brady Quinn's strong debut Thursday, but a second straight fourth-quarter collapse at home puts him on the extreme hot seat. His team has blown leads of 14 and 13 points the past two games. Can Owens catch on? Cowboys WR Terrell Owens hasn't had a 100-yard receiving game this season, a drought that started in 2007 and spans 12 games. He had six 100-yard games last season. Look for the inevitable outcry if it doesn't happen shortly after QB Tony Romo returns next week.

COLLEGE PARK -- In January 2007, Maryland athletic department officials considered an untested strategy for promoting their football team to fans and potential recruits. What if the school starred its players and coaches in a reality television series chronicling the sweat, pain, injuries and sacrifice needed to build a team? Seventeen months and tens of thousands of dollars later, athletic officials say they have what they wanted: a show with a raw, earthy quality that they believe engages fans and serves as a novel recruiting tool.

In 2005 and 2006, Hafner was one of the most feared hitters in baseball. Last year, he took a step backward despite setting career highs in at-bats and games played. He still hit 24 homers and drove in 100 RBIs, but those numbers - as well as his batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and runs scored - were his lowest since he was a part-timer in 2003. Still, the Indians won their division and were a win away from the World Series. But they did it without Hafner's run production.

It's a touchdown for NBC's Friday Night Lights! The Texas drama - it's about much more than football - has been renewed for a full second season. No word yet on what night NBC will air a show that has struggled in the ratings (against stiff-armed competition) but quickly became one of the season's biggest critical darlings. Credit goes to NBC's president of entertainment, Kevin Reilly, a big fan of the show, for showing patience and letting the fans spend more time with coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler)

The only touchdown the Ravens needed against the Buffalo Bills yesterday came courtesy of one of their standout defensive players. Cornerback Chris McAlister provided the touchdown when he intercepted quarterback J.P. Losman and returned it 31 yards. The play propelled the AFC North champions to a 19-7 win at M&T Bank Stadium and gave the Ravens the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs and a first-round bye. McAlister's interception return with 3:46 left in the third quarter broke open what had been a two-point game and provided a spark to an otherwise lethargic offensive performance.

When Chris Robinson took over McDonogh's girls lacrosse team last season, the Eagles were coming off an 8-13-2 season with only one win against an A Conference team. At that point, Robinson, who had coached Mount Hebron to five straight state titles, found the Eagles eager to learn his style of coaching and set their program on the upswing. Nobody expected it to rise so fast. Last season, the Eagles won the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A2 Conference, going 17-2 overall and 4-2 against opponents in the elite A1 Conference.
