Leading Off


Snow Man's Land
Browns running back Jamal Lewis tried to break free from linebacker Angelo Crowell (55) and the rest of the slipping and sliding Bills defense on Sunday in Cleveland. Lewis found his footing on a day when few could, rushing for 163 yards on 33 carries in an 8--0 win that put the Browns (9--5) in the thick of the AFC North title race.

Calftime Show
Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas, had matters well in hand (and teeth) last Friday during the tie-down roping competition at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Brazile won the event as well as the steer-roping and overall titles, becoming the first Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association triple crown champ since Roy Cooper in 1983.

The End of Infamy
To the delight of the Dolphins' success-starved fans, wide receiver Greg Camarillo scored on a 64-yard reception in overtime on Sunday to defeat the Ravens 22--16 and snap a 16-game losing streak. The victory ensured that Miami would not become the first 0--16 team in NFL history.
