ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins quarterback Brad Johnson admits to not knowing much about running back Stephen Davis before last season. Johnson wants to clarify one thing: He wasn't the only one. "Nobody knew who he was," said Johnson, who was traded to the Redskins that off-season. Nobody outside of Redskins' followers, that is. But after leading the NFC with 1,405 yards last season, Davis earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl and the recognition that follows. He has the respect of players and the fear of opposing coaches.

CHARITY FIRST Houston owner Bob McNair, who's got a struggling team on his hands and a beleaguered coach, contributed $2.7 million to the hurricane relief fund at halftime of a 27-7 loss to the Steelers. That's priority. STEPPING UP Six days after taking a helmet to the chest, Eagles QB Donovan McNabb not only played against the 49ers, but also tied his career high with five TD passes. That's leadership. BACK IN GROOVE Steelers WR Hines Ward had a quiet opening week after getting a lucrative contract extension, but caught two TDs in the first half at Houston.

Outlook: The Giants face an uphill task. Their four losses have come to teams that are playoff favorites, and Washington provided one of those defeats. The Giants face severe matchup problems with their offensive line vs. the Redskins' defensive front and with their receivers against the Redskins' defensive backs.

Buffalo (11-5) at Tennessee (13-3) Time: 12: 30 p.m., chs. 2, 7. Line: Titans by 5. Vs. spread: Bills 8-7; Titans 10-5. Last week: Bills beat Colts, 31-6. Titans beat Steelers, 47-36. Series: Oilers/Titans lead 22-15. Last meeting: Titans (then Oilers) won, 31-14, on Nov. 23, 1997, at Tennessee. Outlook: The AFC was loaded this season, so the wild-card round actually produces an intriguing matchup. Certainly, there have been Super Bowls with two worse teams than these. Buffalo coach Wade Phillips' bold gamble to bench QB Doug Flutie for Rob Johnson will make him look like a genius or a fool.

Steve Spurrier came to pass in his NFL coaching debut yesterday, but he also came to run. In a 31-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals, the Washington Redskins coach proved it's not just a passing fancy when he talks about his running game. "Over a period of time, we'll prove we can run the ball," Spurrier told a huge media contingent after his college offense ravaged the Cardinals for 442 total yards and several big plays. With Spurrier calling the plays, running back Stephen Davis carried 26 times for 104 yards and one touchdown.

RUSHING GAME Panthers 8, Patriots 4 The Panthers place more emphasis on the run because of personnel. They've got one of the NFL's toughest running backs in Stephen Davis -- with DeShaun Foster as a nifty changeup back -- to compensate for the relative inexperience of quarterback Jake Delhomme.

They want to pound the ball, but will go to three receivers with confidence. Quarterback Jake Delhomme has been tough in the clutch, producing eight game-winning scores on the team's final possession.

ASHBURN, Va. - The Steve Spurrier experiment in the NFL is over. Spurrier announced yesterday that he had resigned after two years as coach of the Washington Redskins. "I thank [owner] Dan Snyder for the opportunity to coach this team for the past two years, and I apologize to Redskins fans that we did not achieve a level of success that we had all hoped," Spurrier said in a written statement issued by the team's public relations department. " ... I'll always be pulling for the Redskins."

ASHBURN, Va. - Stephen Davis would like nothing more than to watch Washington Redskins fullback Rock Cartwright succeed. Just not Sunday, when Cartwright's Redskins visit Davis and the Carolina Panthers at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. "I'm proud of him," said Davis, who was the starting tailback for Washington last year during Cartwright's rookie season. "He's worked hard to be in the position that he's in. Hopefully, he can have a successful day, but otherwise, [I hope] we can come out with the victory."

Some games resonate louder than others, sometimes because of the matchup and sometimes because of what we learn from them. In Week 7, for example, we saw what happens when the Carolina Panthers can't run the ball, and what happens when the San Francisco 49ers can. We learned the Minnesota Vikings aren't to be trifled with, and that the New England Patriots should never be counted out. It's not yet midseason, but it's later than many teams think....

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins are wearing T-shirts this week that proclaim they "Believe in Stephen." That's Stephen Davis, who came out of nowhere this season to rush for 1,405 yards and 17 touchdowns, make the Pro Bowl and carry the team into the playoffs. The company that used to make the T-shirts for the "Hogs" back in the team's glory days under Joe Gibbs decided to capitalize on Davis' newfound fame and sell the T-shirts with his name and picture on them. It put them on sale this week and passed them out for the players as a promotional gimmick.

ASHBURN, Va. - First, the New Orleans Saints. Then, the Green Bay Packers. Now, the Philadelphia Eagles. Welcome to the NFL, Patrick Ramsey. When the rookie quarterback makes his third career start for the Washington Redskins (5-8) at 1 p.m. today at Veterans Stadium, he will seek his first victory as a starter against a Philadelphia defense that many consider to be one of the league's best. "Hopefully, that'll be this week," Ramsey said. "But we know we're playing an excellent football team and an excellent defense.

ASHBURN, Va. - Brett Favre can empathize with Patrick Ramsey. Like the Washington Redskins' quarterback, Favre was a virtual unknown who took over for an injured Don Majkowski in the fourth game of the 1992 season and threw two touchdowns and zero interceptions to guide the Green Bay Packers to a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Favre, who was in his second year, promptly lost his next three starts - tossing just two touchdowns against two interceptions and eight sacks. So when asked how he would counsel Ramsey after the Redskins' rookie followed a two-touchdown, zero-interception debut in a victory over the Tennessee Titans with a four-interception, seven-sack outing in a 43-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday, Favre wasted no time in preaching patience.
