Highlight: Wide receiver Henry Ellard moved into fourth place in NFL career receptions with five catches for 93 yards and one touchdown in Washington's 24-10 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. Ellard has 765 receptions, passing James Lofton (764). Jerry Rice (1,037), Art Monk (940) and Steve Largent (819) are the top three.Lowlights: There were major breakdowns in all phases for the Redskins, who played without six injured starters. The final straw came with 2: 49 remaining, when Washington attempted an onside kick and didn't have one player within 8 yards of recovering it.The Redskins' last-place defense continued its lethargic play, allowing the Bucs 209 rushing yards on 45 attempts, led by running backs Errict Rhett (97)

MIAMI -- The two-week break is over. The players and coaches are ready. The game plans are set. All that's left is . . . the commercials?Seriously, it's Super Bowl XXIX, with the San Francisco 49ers going for their fifth title against the San Diego Chargers, making their first appearance in the NFL's title game.The 49ers are heavy favorites, led by superstars Steve Young at quarterback, Jerry Rice at wide receiver and Deion Sanders at cornerback.The Chargers, looking to break the AFC's 10-year Super Bowl drought, have a relatively unknown cast, with quarterback Stan Humphries and linebacker Junior Seau the team leaders.

WASHINGTON -- Fate, and unfinished House business, played a mean trick on House Speaker Tom Foley. Defeated on Nov. 8 after 30 years in Congress, Foley came back to preside over the House of Representatives one final time as it met in special session to vote on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).Foley could easily have ducked the task. He could have remained home in Spokane, Wash., where voters brushed aside his seniority and influence in favor of a Republican political neophyte named George Nethercutt who said he wanted to be "a listener, not a speaker."

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins got a victory for themselves and a record for Art Monk last night.After pounding the Denver Broncos, 34-3, before 56,371 fans at RFK Stadium last night, the Redskins wanted to cap off the night by getting Art Monk the all-time career pass receiving record.When Sidney Johnson intercepted a pass by rookie Tommy Maddox on the Washington 42 with 4:21 left, the Redskins decided it was record time.Monk, who had already caught four passes to boost his career total to 817, needed three more catches to surpass Steve Largent's record of 819.Quarterback Mark Rypien, who rallied from last week's disaster in Phoenix to pass for 245 yards and a touchdown, threw three straight passes of 6, 18 and 10 yards to Monk to break the record.

SAN FRANCISCO -- On a day Jerry Rice made history, th Philadelphia Eagles made rationalizations.On a day the San Francisco 49ers handed them a 20-14 defeat, the Eagles believed they left Candlestick Park with something of much greater value.On a day the Eagles fell behind the Washington Redskins in the NFC East and in the wild-card scramble, they believed they were inches away from success.On a day they lost, the Eagles almost pretended they won."We fell short," coach Rich Kotite said, raising his voice to stress his point.

WASHINGTON - U.S. regulators ruled yesterday that mobile-telephone providers' bills must list government fees separately. Customers had complained that companies hid their charges in catch-all categories. The Federal Communications Commission told carriers such as Cingular Wireless LLC and Verizon Wireless to give subscribers more details on regulatory fees, including those for transferring numbers to another carrier. The FCC also shifted oversight of the rule to the federal government from the states, drawing criticism from both Democratic commissioners.

Miami Dolphins running back Sammie Smith, upset by profane fan reaction to his goal-line fumbles in successive games, says he may request a trade after the season.As Smith walked to the locker room after Sunday's 17-13 loss to the Houston Oilers, the crowd chanted. It drove him to tears."What bothered me was my wife, little girl, my parents, my brothers and about 25 or 30 of my best friends had to listen," Smith told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "I've heard the verbal abuse before. I've read the attacks before.
