Jeff George and Terance Mathis put a damper on Herschel Walker's return to Georgia. George threw for 364 yards and combined with Mathis on two touchdown passes Sunday, giving Atlanta a 28-21 victory over Philadelphia despite a 91-yard touchdown run by Walker, who won a Heisman Trophy 12 years ago at Georgia. Walker's run, longest from scrimmage in the NFL since Bo Jackson went 92 yards for the Raiders five years ago, gave the Eagles a 14-13 lead 2:45 into the second half.

When it comes to carrying the bulk of the New Orleans offense, Craig Heyward is certainly built for the job. But Coach Jim Mora has never been inclined to give him that opportunity because he felt the fourth-year running back was too heavy to handle such a heavy load. Near the end of last season, Mora issued yet another public reprimand concerning Heyward's inability to trim a few pounds, hinting that he would be both healthier and more effective if he weighed closer to 250 than 300.
