With his 127-yard performance, Corey Dillon ended the Baltimore Ravens' string of 50 consecutive games without allowing a 100-yard rusher. The streak was the longest in the NFL since the Philadelphia Eagles held individual runners under the century mark for 53 consecutive games from 1989-92. James Allen (163 yards) of the Bears was the last running back to gain more than 100 yards against Baltimore, on Dec. 20, 1998.

UCLA shuffled receivers, moving Jim McElroy from split end to flanker and putting Eric Scott into the starting lineup at split end. Senior Derek Ayers, the only Bruin who has caught a pass in every game, was dropped behind McElroy at flanker. The moves were made because of passes dropped both in games and practices by Ayers, although no UCLA receiver has been exempt from missing throws. "I know I'm happy to get in, but not necessarily the way it happened," said Scott, a junior.

Four Chinese swimmers were suspended Wednesday after failing drug tests, strengthening accusations that have shadowed the team for years and prompting calls for China to be removed from the world championships at Perth, Australia. The United States won two titles and Olympic gold medalist Alexander Popov won the 100-meter freestyle. But the focus of the championships again was on drugs and China's team.

Chris Johnson has gone from the Tennessee Titans to the onetime New York Titans. The former 2,000-yard running back signed a two-year deal with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to multiple reports, potentially adding punch to an offense ranked 25 th in total yards last season. The Jets were the only team Johnson visited after being released by the Titans almost two weeks ago. Johnson, 28, is coming off a down season in which he averaged a career-low 3.9 yards per carry and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards.

Rookies Chad Williams and Ron Johnson scored touchdowns on returns, and a Baltimore Raven defense missing Ray Lewis held on at the end in a 27-23 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The Ravens (6-6) opened the season with 19 first-year players on the roster, the fallout from salary-cap problems that gutted a Super Bowl team. Injuries to Lewis and others dropped them out of contention at midseason. Heading down the stretch, the newcomers are reviving the playoff talk.
