Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has felt heat before. Can he throw the football? Can he produce with his arm rather than just his feet? Can he lead Atlanta to the Super Bowl? But Vick experienced a different kind of pressure yesterday as the Ravens' defense harassed, hit and hurried Vick and the Falcons offense into their worst outing of the season. Atlanta compiled a season-low 186 yards of total offense, and the league's top-ranked rushing unit was held to 104 yards, another season worst.

One minute you're yelling "Duce!" Next minute you're shouting "D'OH!" (Or worse). So it goes for the tortured owners of Pittsburgh's Duce Staley, a repeat victim of TD theft. That's right, TD theft. It's an increasingly common offense in today's increasingly specialized NFL, and here's now it works: One guy does a lot of work (like Staley) running the ball down the field. Then another guy comes in, runs for a short touchdown and gets to do a little dance or spin the ball or whatever else he wants (unless it's something choreographed, or involves a cell phone, or a Sharpie; those are No-Nos)

NEW ORLEANS -- Florida State's players are obviously excited about the possibility of a second national championship in four years, but they are also motivated by a fear of failure.The top-ranked Seminoles have won 11 straight bowl games, and they are unbeaten in their past 14 bowl games, both NCAA records. They haven't lost a bowl game since the 1980 season, when Oklahoma beat Florida State, 18-17, in the Orange Bowl."The streak, man, we don't want to be the ones to end it," said senior wide receiver Andre Cooper.

Todd Heap looked into the eyes of U.S. soldiers about to go to war this week and found new perspective on Operation Iraqi Freedom. "I've always felt like I've had a great appreciation for all the troops and all they've been doing over there for us, and for the war in general," the Ravens' two-time Pro Bowl tight end was saying yesterday from Wiesbaden, Germany. "But coming over here and experiencing it firsthand, it's opened my eyes, just to see people and look into their eyes. I've gained a greater appreciation knowing that the person I just talked to might be going over [to Iraq]
