New England (9-7) at Jacksonville (11-5) 9:30 a.m., Channel 2 * HEAD TO HEAD: The Patriots are 3-0 against the Jaguars, including a 26-20 victory last season and a 20-6 victory in the AFC championship game on Jan. 12, 1997. In the latter, the Jaguars outgained the Patriots, 289 yards to 234, but were victimized by four turnovers as they attempted to reach the Super Bowl in only their second season. * SCOUTING THE PATRIOTS: In a game matching banged-up teams, the Patriots are hurting more.

The Cincinnati Bungles are back. The Jacksonville Jaguars think they might be too. Mark Brunell threw for two touchdowns, and Stacey Mack ran for two Sunday to help the desperate Jaguars end a losing streak at five games with a 30-13 victory over the mistake-prone Bengals. The Jaguars (3-5) scored 21 points in the third quarter to take a 28-13 lead and, unlike the last two weeks, they held onto a double-digit lead. "Finally," Jaguar linebacker Kevin Hardy said, as he let out a sigh.

In beginning their quest to get their grip on another Lombardi Trophy, the New England Patriots on Saturday wrapped their arms around another valuable prize: The Leftwich statue. The Patriots sacked Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich four times -- and corralled his backup, David Garrard, twice more -- putting a defensive stamp on their NFL-record 10th consecutive playoff victory, a 28-3 pounding of the Jaguars on a frigid night at Gillette Stadium.

Nobody had to ask Donovan McNabb how he felt after this one. Led by rookie John Henderson's three sacks, the Jacksonville Jaguars chased McNabb until he was literally sick to his stomach Sunday and continued their surprising start with a 28-25 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. McNabb threw for 230 yards and ran for 100, but he paid an extreme price.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Indianapolis Colts are defending Super Bowl champions, have a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Peyton Manning, and -- after a 29-7 victory over Jacksonville on Monday -- are 6-0 for a third consecutive season. Still, they're playing in the shadow of the New England Patriots. That makes the Colts the Greatest Sideshow on Turf.

Meet the new Dick Vermeil, so loose, so carefree that he doesn't even plan to have a curfew for his St. Louis Rams this week as they prepare for Super Bowl XXXIV on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The old Vermeil, whose Philadelphia Eagles reached Super Bowl XV before losing to the Oakland Raiders, was so uptight that he did everything but tuck his players in Super Bowl week. But don't think that means Vermeil will bury his head in Super Bowl hoopla.
