Miami (7-3) at New England (5-5)Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.Line: Patriots by 3.Vs. spread: Dolphins 6-3; Patriots 4-5.Outlook: Call the Dolphins the anti-Broncos. If Denver has raced to an unbeaten start with offense, the Dolphins stand alone atop the AFC East with defense. They'll try to clamp CBs Terrell Buckley and Sam Madison on the Patriots' receivers and shut down New England's anemic running game. If the Dolphins can manage a running game, they'll hang onto first place for another week.

The prolific passers will come later. This weekend, the NFL's wild-card round offers a mixed bag of postseason quarterbacks, some more vulnerable than others. Included in the NFC bracket is a 37-year old, undrafted refugee from the Canadian Football League (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Jeff Garcia) and a 36-year-old journeyman (the Washington Redskins' Todd Collins) who hadn't started any game in a decade until last month. The AFC's field includes a former fourth-round pick who threw only three interceptions this season (David Garrard of the Jacksonville Jaguars)

Frank Sanders was added to the injury report yesterday, but the Ravens veteran receiver is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He is listed as questionable after experiencing tightness in his hamstring. After missing the season opener with a foot injury, Sanders has three catches for 45 yards. "He should be fine for the weekend," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. Sanders said he felt soreness in his hamstring during Wednesday's warm-ups. But yesterday, he felt improvement and even played basketball before practice.

While many NFL teams made a decision at quarterback this week, the Ravens have to make up their mind on theirs: Either wait another month for Steve McNair or begin to pursue Kerry Collins and Brian Griese. According to a league source, the Ravens have discussed the possibility of not adding a veteran quarterback until after the NFL draft, which is the earliest the Tennessee Titans would consider cutting McNair. Unlike Collins or Griese - who would compete against Kyle Boller in training camp - McNair would likely be the undisputed starter if he joined the Ravens.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Great (Backup) Quarterback Debate continued yesterday at Redskins Park. While both Todd Collins and Jason Campbell expressed confidence in their abilities to take over if starting quarterback Mark Brunell is injured, neither the 11-year veteran who has barely played since 1997 nor the former No. 1 draft pick showed much concern over the unusual situation of sharing the No. 2 role.
