Taking aim With the Saints out of the playoffs, QB Drew Brees needs 753 passing yards in his final two games to overtake Dan Marino's single-season record (5,084). Brees should get a bunch against the Lions today. The key will be next week's game against Carolina, which might need to win for seeding purposes. Marino's record should survive. Taking heat Jim Zorn's Redskins started the season 6-2, but after losing five of six, the coach's job security is in question. Last week, he pointed the finger at himself.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Ravens will enter a whole new world today.When they play the Tennessee Titans at Adelphia Coliseum, they will be playing in a new stadium against one of the top teams in the AFC, replete with one of the best running backs in the NFL, two legitimate big-play receivers and a quarterback who has led a team to the Super Bowl.This is not the expansion Cleveland Browns or the Atlanta Falcons minus quarterback Chris Chandler and running back Jamal Anderson. The Ravens' two victories this season were against those teams, which have a combined record of 0-8.The Titans (3-1)

Judging from the actions of coach Wade Phillips, WR Terrell Owens and CB Adam Jones, the Cowboys are either unraveling in Week 6 or playing an inside joke. This much seems clear: After losing to the Redskins and nearly the Bengals, they aren't the same team that won their first three games decisively. Phillips was so incensed by a reporter's suggestion that Dallas "stunk" against Cincinnati that he stalked off in mid-news conference. Owens went from complaining one week about his number of chances per game to crying in front of the media over the loss of a family member the next.

In a year when anything goes, the best division race to watch is in the AFC East, where even the last-place New York Jets suddenly have designs on a postseason berth.After a 17-7 Week 11 win over the Buffalo Bills, Jets coach Bill Parcells didn't rule out a playoff run by his team. Don't count on it, though. The Jets have the hardest path to the postseason of any team in the division. They must play four of their last six on the road, and their remaining opponents have a combined record of 42-18 (.700)

Few days in the long NFL season promise to offer as much insight into the playoff scramble as this one. Three games today will go a long way toward crowning three division champions and assign a pecking order to the postseason. Today could signal the return of the St. Louis Rams as NFC juggernaut. It could validate the Chicago Bears' improbable rise from the NFC Central ashes. And it could entrench the Pittsburgh Steelers as top dog in the AFC Central race, next week's game in Baltimore notwithstanding.

After rushing for 119 yards in the Ravens' 17-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, Jamal Lewis still wasn't quite sure who had paved the way for his performance. Considering the amount of offensive line shuffling that took place before and during the game, that's not much of a surprise. "I didn't really know at first that they had moved [Edwin] Mulitalo back to tackle and [Casey] Rabach to guard," Lewis said. "I didn't know that until [yesterday]. I wish they would fill me in more.

From the stands, fans watching the tackles and the touchdowns might think football is a game of sheer brawn. But up close, football is a game you grab with both hands - however fragile they might be. These photographs are from last week's game, in which the Ravens beat the Houston Texans, 16-15.

Too soon to play? As if losing to Cincinnati last night wasn't bad enough, count Ravens coach Brian Billick as one who has reservations about playing Thursday nights. Billick generally supports efforts to enhance the league's exposure, but he expressed some concern after practice Wednesday about playing just four days removed from Sunday's game. "I don't think I'm being consulted on this one," Billick said with a smile. "For a league that places such a priority on the safety and health of the players, this one pushes that a little bit."

The original idea for this column was to convince you all that it would be better, and smarter, for the Ravens to just rest all their injured players (and there are a lot) Sunday in Buffalo, even if it meant losing and falling to 4-3. Better to sacrifice a game than to risk depleting their health further. Next week's bye, the argument was going to go, is far more important than this week's game in the grand scheme of things, which includes a brutal second-half schedule that begins in Pittsburgh on Nov. 5. Yesterday, the Ravens' players convinced me of the exact opposite.

In hindsight, we were all out of our minds to think this quarterback thing would be resolved by now, weren't we? To believe that was to take a wild leap of imagination, and an even wilder leap of faith - in Kyle Boller and Troy Smith, in Cam Cameron and in John Harbaugh. There might be a best man for the Ravens' starting job, but it's obvious now that knowing who it is after two preseason games was a stretch, at best, and delusional at worst. The Ravens get points for trying. They also get points for never really saying, out loud or for the record, that they were following the usual NFL habit of having such matters settled by the next-to-last preseason game, the last lengthy work by the starters before they're put in bubble wrap for the final.

WHEN JOHN SAUNDERS saw the scene at the Palace at Auburn Hills last Friday, he had a visceral reaction. Quite visceral, in fact. Saunders, host of ESPN's NBA studio show, saw players and fans battling in the stands and on the floor. But he also saw red. He laid the blame on the paying customers, saying the fans involved in the melee were "a bunch of punks." In the days that followed, Saunders would soften his stance, saying the Indiana Pacers who went after the crowd also were in the wrong, but in a phone interview Tuesday, he explained his initial harsh response had much to do with his own unfortunate brush with an ugly crowd 27 years ago. In 1977, Saunders was a college hockey player for Ryerson University in Toronto.

Huddled in a Dallas locker room, the Navy football team sang "Anchors Aweigh" at the top of their lungs Saturday night. They said the Lord's Prayer, and then they counted off the points in their 38-7 win over Southern Methodist, shaking their fists as they barked out each number. But mostly the Midshipmen just smiled. After all, they could rightfully call themselves winners, and it had been a long time since that was true. Navy went 0-10 last season. "We expected to win," said Navy quarterback Craig Candeto, who rushed for 154 yards and three touchdowns.

The aftermath was as encouraging as the performance for Ravens running back Jamal Lewis. A day after Lewis had four carries for 24 yards in Thursday's loss to the New York Jets, he experienced no swelling in his knee and just minor soreness. Yesterday, he was back at practice running with the starters and showing no signs of weariness, surprising considering it was Lewis' first game action since the 2001 Super Bowl 19 months ago. "I felt a little ache, but it felt pretty good," Lewis said.
