Dallas Cowboy quarterback Danny White was surprised when Coach Tom Landry sent in a flea-flicker pass play in the third quarter of Sunday's 20-7 victory over the Cleveland Browns. "It was the second time today that he called it," White said. "It's rare it gets called once. But for it to be called twice, that's really rare."

Bud Carson got off to a rough start early in the Browns' training camp last summer. He said he couldn't understand why people kept asking him about Pro Bowl cornerbacks Frank Minnifield and Hanford Dixon in tandem, as if they were the same man. Dixon, Carson said to set the record straight, is not the player Minnifield is. He may have been right, but Carson spent the rest of the summer repairing bruised egos. But gradually his players came to appreciate his brutal honesty.

Lester Hayes, still heard but no longer seen in the Raider scheme, got around to passing the torch to the Cleveland Browns' Frank Minnifield and Hanford Dixon this week. Those two are generally regarded as the best set of cornerbacks in the National Football League, and the Judge acknowledged as much during an informal visit to the Raider press room one day. They used to say that about Hayes and Mike Haynes, who continues at the other side after three straight Pro Bowl appearances--nine in all.

None of the Chargers would dare emulate defensive backs Frank Minniefield and Hanford Dixon of the Cleveland Browns, who like to bark at each other during a game. It would not be sensible, however, for Charger defenders to give their critics any further ammunition, such as ascribing canine qualities to them. The statistics are brutal enough: last in total defense, last in pass defense. But these Browns are different. They take pride in being known as Dogs.

The Raiders are back for their first official appearance since the Ice Bowl in early 1981, when the wind-chill factor hit minus-40 and they helped quick-freeze the Cleveland Browns' hopes for half a decade. A hotter time is expected in the old town today. Raider Coach Tom Flores is comparing it to last season's Chicago game, in which the young Bears, having just risen to the top of their division, demonstrated their mettle with an assault that threatened to send the Raiders home in ambulances.

Injuries to Cleveland Browns' quarterback Bernie Kosar and fullback Kevin Mack make them questionable for Sunday's crucial regular season-ending game with the Houston Oilers, a Cleveland team spokesman said. Kevin Byrne, a team spokesman, said Kosar, Mack and four teammates who returned from Monday night's losing game at Miami limited their team activities today to exams by Dr. John Bergfeld, the team physician. Kosar was knocked out of the Miami game with 9:17 left with a sprained left knee.

The Cleveland Browns practiced Friday without two starters, cornerback Hanford Dixon and starting left inside linebacker Eddie Johnson. Dixon has a sore left ankle, and Johnson suffered a sprained left shoulder and ankle in last Saturday's 23-20 overtime victory over the New York Jets. Both veterans are expected to be available for Sunday's AFC championship game against Denver, but their playing time might be curtailed.

Cleveland Browns safety Al Gross wants interceptions not only to help his team win football games, but also to help feed starving people in Africa. "We're going to donate money to an African aid program through the Red Cross," Gross said this week after a Browns practice. "For every interception any of the four starters in our secondary gets, we're going to donate. "I want to get 10 or 11 interceptions this year. Last year I had five but I dropped three or four.

Dallas Cowboy Coach Barry Switzer is upset about what he sees as a deliberate attempt to hurt quarterback Troy Aikman, and he's complaining to the NFL about it. Switzer's anger stems from a head shot by Cincinnati's James Francis during Sunday's game, won by the Cowboys. "He knew what he was doing and it was uncalled for," Switzer said. "He went to Troy's head and that bothers me." The Bengals received a 15-yard penalty for the blow.
