PITTSBURGH - The last time Tommy Maddox was readying for his fourth consecutive NFL start, Brian Billick was closer to an appearance on Match Game than in the Super Bowl, Bill Cowher was a rookie head coach and Bill Clinton was relatively new inside the Capital Beltway. It was an entire Denver uniform change and new stadium ago. It was 1992. Suffice to say, a long time has passed. For Maddox, in the decade since he last started a fourth consecutive game, he has played for four other NFL teams, one defunct league (the XFL)

So this is the Ravens' new "profile": Control the clock. Have the quarterback manage the game. Play defense. Force turnovers. Make plays on special teams (particularly 44-yard field goals in overtime). And if at all possible, get the other team to use its third-string quarterback. The Ravens have put just about all those pieces together twice this season - including that last piece - and have won both times. Talk about taking what a team gives you. The Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday gave them Tommy Maddox, instead of Ben Roethlisberger or Charlie Batch, or, for that matter, Antwaan Randle-El or Hines Ward, two ex-quarterbacks who couldn't have done any worse behind center than their overmatched teammate.

LATROBE, Pa. - At age 21, Tommy Maddox was cruising the fast lane of the NFL. He was a first-round draft choice of the Denver Broncos, the likely successor to John Elway and a star in waiting. Four weeks shy of his 33rd birthday, Maddox is officially on the flip side. The incumbent starting quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers will spend training camp and beyond looking over his shoulder at the future of the team. What he sees back there is 6-foot-4 Ben Roethlisberger, a chiseled-in-stone specimen from Miami of Ohio and the Steelers' first-round pick in April.

Key Play Score Tied 13-13 Quarter Fourth, 1:14 remaining Situation Steelers' ball, second-and-nine at their 47-yard line Play The Steelers had seized the momentum, scoring a touchdown on their previous possession, and were driving for an attempt at a game-winning field goal. Steelers quarterback Tommy Maddox (8) dropped back to pass and looked to his right for receiver Hines Ward (86), who was covered tightly by Chris McAlister (21). The ball hit Ward in the hands, and as he was falling back he kicked the ball toward the middle of the field.

All-America defensive tackle Steve Emtman said yesterday that he will pass up his senior season at Washington to enter the NFL draft.If Emtman is the first overall selection, as some people expect, he p,14l probably would receive a five-year contract worth between $8 million and $9 million, including a signing bonus of $3.8 million to $4 million.Last year's top pick, defensive tackle Russell Maryland, got a five-year, $7.9 million contract that included a $3.6 million signing bonus."The main deciding factor was that of personal challenge," Emtman said.

Chris McAlister said he had been waiting his whole career to lay a lick on Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward like the one he did in the fourth quarter of last night's 13-10 Ravens win. With a running start, McAlister knocked Ward off his feet with a shoulder-high tackle, seemingly alleviating every bit of frustration he and the Ravens' secondary had faced against the Steelers' receivers the previous five games. "It felt so good," McAlister said. "I've been waiting on that my whole career.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could be cocky. He has been named NFL Rookie of the Week eight times. He has the rookie record for completion percentage in a game, and is on pace to break the team mark of 62.1 percent for a full season. He is undefeated in 12 starts, and has the Steelers a game away from securing home-field advantage in the playoffs. But success hasn't changed the youngster from Findlay, in central Ohio. On the field, he has been the model player. Off the field, he's a pretty good citizen, too. "Life has changed a little bit," Roethlisberger said.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher could single out a number of high-profile offensive players - such as receivers Plaxico Burress, Hines Ward or even quarterback Tommy Maddox - as key factors for his team. Instead, Cowher spouts off the Steelers' record when a relative unknown is in the lineup. "When Marvel Smith has played," Cowher says, "We're 3-1." Actually, Cowher is a little off. Smith, the Steelers' left tackle who has been bothered by a shoulder and neck injury this season, has played six games, with the Steelers going 3-3. He will not play in Sunday night's game at M&T Bank Stadium, and that may be key for a Ravens team that may have to play without outside linebacker Peter Boulware, who is questionable with a knee sprain.

For the Ravens to upset the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular-season finale at Heinz Field tomorrow, Baltimore's offensive line must continue to protect Jeff Blake. He has been dropped just twice in the past two games, but in that same span Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme has notched 12 quarterback sacks. "Jeff had adequate protection the last time we played them," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. "Even with the game out of reach, when [the Steelers] can normally turn it loose, we protected pretty well."

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Tommy Maddox completed his first 11 passes over 1 1/2 quarters, but the Ravens' secondary claimed the bulk of the responsibility in allowing the former XFL Most Valuable Player to look so good. Maddox, who left the game in the third quarter with a foot injury but returned, finished with a 104.9 quarterback rating, two touchdowns and a 31-18 win. "I wouldn't say he was on a roll," cornerback Gary Baxter said. "We did things to hurt ourselves rather than Pittsburgh executing against us. Tommy Maddox did a good job passing, and those guys did a good job executing."

The Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday officially ruled running back Jerome Bettis out of Sunday's game, which brought a collective shrug from the Ravens. Bettis' absence means Amos Zereoue likely will start and Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala will see an increased workload. That combination could easily give the Ravens as much of a problem as Bettis, who has not played in the past two games between the teams. "I don't think much is going to change without Jerome Bettis," said defensive end Tony Weaver.

Two days from the Ravens cornerbacks' next go-around with Pittsburgh receiver Plaxico Burress, Chris McAlister is giving him the silent treatment while Gary Baxter is wanting to reintroduce himself. Whatever the approach, the Ravens' regular-season finale likely hinges on whether their secondary can shut down Burress, or perhaps, shut him up. Burress has become the Steelers' biggest - and loudest - offensive weapon against the Ravens ever since they nicknamed him "Plexiglas" last season.

Dallas (3-6) at Indianapolis (5-4) Time: 1 p.m. today. Line: Colts by 7. Key stat: It's Colts' No. 12 defense vs. Cowboys' No. 28 offense. Worth watching: Can Colts rookie RB James Mungro repeat his 114-yard performance of last week? Dallas rookie QB Chad Hutchinson has not been intercepted, but only one of his 63 passes has gone for a TD. Outlook: The Cowboys have scored only 21 points in Hutchinson's two starts. The Colts emerged from a midseason slump to rout the Eagles last week.
