Brad Johnson was as bad as he could be in the final exhibition game, raising concerns about what the Minnesota Vikings would do without Warren Moon. They found out Sunday, when Johnson was as good as he had to be. Playing the entire second half after Moon went out because of ankle injuries, Johnson threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Cris Carter with 1:06 remaining as the Vikings rallied for a 17-13 victory over the Detroit Lions.

Larry Johnson, already facing possible suspension by the NFL, was charged Monday with simple assault for spitting his drink in a woman's face. Several hours later, the Kansas City Chiefs indicated the two-time Pro Bowl running back would not play for the foreseeable future. A person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press that Johnson would meet with league officials in New York today. The person requested anonymity because the league has not announced the meeting.

It's Super Bowl time, so we know all about Rich Gannon, the Oakland Raider quarterback, spectacular passer and fiery competitor. He is the NFL most valuable player, with a swagger to go with the honor. But what about the quarterback on the other team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Isn't it some guy named Johnson? Is that the same Johnson who played for USC and came out of El Toro High? Rob Johnson? Or are we mixed up?

IRVING, Texas -- Brad Johnson made up for several missed chances at touchdowns by throwing one to newcomer Roy Williams at the end of a drive sustained by four defensive penalties, and the much-maligned Dallas defense made it hold up for a 13-9 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Cowboys (5-3) gained only 173 yards, but with Coach Wade Phillips taking a "more active" role in his defense, they put the clamps on Jeff Garcia and the Buccaneers (5-3).

Congratulations to the Minnesota Vikings. They finally topped the Herschel Walker deal for worst trade of all time. Brad Johnson, a Pro Bowl quarterback in his prime, for draft picks? Apparently Viking management missed Randall Cunningham's impression of a deer in traffic during the second half of the NFC championship game. VINCENT PAULSON El Segundo

Critic Michele Wallace faults Spike for having the Wesley Snipes and Annabelle Sciorra characters come from different economic circumstances. While it may be true that interracial couples of similar economic levels are finding love, as Wallace says, Spike's scenario is also true. The larger picture, however, is that he emerges as the pre-eminent consciousness-raiser of our time. For the record, Yusuf Hawkins was shot to death, not beaten. BRAD JOHNSON Los Angeles

As the Indianapolis Colts continue to prove there is such a thing as winning too many games too soon -- Tony Dungy is 13-0 and about to lead the league in second-guesses the rest of the regular season -- we pause to contemplate a top three that was unthinkable in August. NFL quarterbacks with the longest current winning streaks: 1. Peyton Manning, 13-0 after Indianapolis' 26-18 victory over Jacksonville Sunday. 2. Matt Hasselbeck, 9-0 after Seattle's 41-3 walk-though against San Francisco. 3.

Brad Johnson acknowledged this week he has been taking a beating -- from his two sons, at home playing in the snow. Since their dad took over as Minnesota's quarterback a month ago, defenses around the NFC don't seem to have anything on little Max and Jake. "I feel great right now," said the 37-year-old Johnson, who is 4-0 for the Vikings since replacing the injured Daunte Culpepper as the starter. "My arm's fresh. Legs are fresh.

Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice waited until the game started to run right through the Washington Redskins. Rice had a career-high four sacks, Sapp had two while avoiding any pregame antics, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers broke loose in the second half to beat Washington, 35-13, Sunday. All eyes were on Sapp before the game, because Washington's LaVar Arrington objected to Sapp's routine of prancing through the opposing team's exercise formations.

Brad Johnson had played in the Super Bowl before. Maybe not the games watched annually by millions of people, but the games he played in his imagination and on the fields of his tiny hometown, Black Mountain, N.C. "I've seen myself here before," the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' quarterback said Sunday. "I've practiced this a thousand times with my father. I've visualized this and hoped that one of these years it would come true."

The Raiders are facing a very smart, very reliable quarterback in Brad Johnson. He isn't spectacular, but he doesn't make a lot of mistakes. He's much more likely to take a sack than force a pass that leads to an interception. Because his offensive line isn't great, and the Raiders have a huge defensive line that can get pressure on the quarterback, Johnson will take a lot of three- and five-step drops and get rid of the ball. When he gets in a rhythm, he's dangerous.

Keyshawn Johnson: the miniseries. It's impossible to avoid quoting the talkative and opinionated wide receiver, who manages to find new topics to expound upon every day. Thursday's topic was why Los Angeles -- where he was born and enjoyed two stellar seasons with USC -- doesn't have an NFL team and where an L.A.-based team should play if there ever is another. "It's sad," said Johnson, who wore a Joe Montana jersey to the interview session. "L.A. desperately needs football.

Finally, a breakout game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offense. Brad Johnson threw for 313 yards and a career-high five touchdowns, and the Buccaneers played their best game on offense for first-year Coach Jon Gruden in Sunday's 38-24 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. "We're moving in the right direction," said Keyshawn Johnson, who had nine receptions for 133 yards and two touchdowns -- all season highs. "This was a big step. What's important now is we keep moving and get better and better."
