A report in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram on Wednesday, which quoted several unnamed Cowboys, said that Buffalo linebacker Darryl Talley was punched in the nose by Magic Johnson's bodyguard Sunday night at Roxbury, a West Hollywood nightspot. The incident reportedly took place after quarterback Jim Kelly and Talley directed pointed remarks at Johnson. "I had some guys ask me about that today," Talley told the NFL pool reporter after practice Wednesday. "I have no idea what they're talking about."

When the old American Football League was on the rise a couple of decades ago, 8-touchdown games were routine. Some days, nothing stopped the AFL's best teams but the final gun. In a cool, misty Ohio rain, there was a throwback to that era here Sunday when the two teams of 1988 in that league--known now as the American Football Conference--combined to score 56 points in a game that the Cincinnati Bengals won, 35-21, to end the Buffalo Bills' 7-game winning streak.
