It wasn't the loss of star running back Ricky Williams in the last game. It wasn't the loss of starting quarterback Jeff Blake in the first quarter. It was the gutsy performance of Oakland quarterback Rich Gannon, especially down the stretch Sunday when he ate up the clock and contributed two touchdowns, that snapped the New Orleans Saints' six-game winning streak, 31-22. "Super performance given the circumstances in this game," Oakland Coach Jon Gruden said.

Jeff Blake bounded out of the X-ray room to lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a dramatic 34-31 victory over the Houston Oilers on Sunday. Limping severely on a sprained ankle, Blake led the Bengals on two scoring drives in the final three minutes, the second leading to Doug Pelfrey's 40-yard game-winning field goal as time ran out. A 33-yard pass to Carl Pickens set up Pelfrey's kick.

The Cincinnati Bengals unexpectedly decided to keep former starting quarterback Jeff Blake on their roster. The Bengals reportedly tried to trade Blake after Neil O'Donnell won the starting job in the third exhibition game. They also asked him to restructure his contract and take less than the $1.95 million he'll get in base salary this year, but he declined. The Bengals chose to keep him anyway after Paul Justin struggled in the exhibition finale against Atlanta.

Quarterback Jeff Blake and the Cincinnati Bengals aren't stirring up much excitement in the NFL, but Blake stands out from other quarterbacks in one respect. The legend on the back of his trading card says, "Jeff Blake is a star quarterback." The message is significant because it is in Braille, the first for an athlete. Pacific Trading Cards has distributed Blake's cards in one set with the text in the type used for the visually impaired.

The fate of quarterback Jeff Blake is a hot topic since the Cincinnati Bengals decided to start Neil O'Donnell in the season opener. Some are wondering whether Blake, scheduled to make $1.5 million this season and $1 million next year, will remain with the Bengals or be cut this weekend to help reduce the roster to 53 players. "We're going to do what's best for the team, and we'll do it in a timely fashion. I don't think that creates any problems," Bengal President Mike Brown said.

The play developed like so many others for Mark Brunell and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He rolled to his left, found his receivers covered and saw room to scramble. For the first time since tearing ligaments in his right knee, Brunell never gave it a second thought. He ran. Brunell was back to his old self Sunday in a 21-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, throwing for three touchdowns and again showing his ability as a scrambler.

The policeman who resigned after giving Cincinnati Bengal quarterback Jeff Blake a ride home said he was just trying to do what was best for Blake and the public. Former Addyston (Ohio) police officer Michael Schmidt told the Dayton Daily News Friday that Blake had told him he was lost when he stopped while driving through the village about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 15. The officer said Blake also told him he had had "one or two beers." Schmidt said Blake passed a sobriety test.

Challenged by his coach to play better, Jeff Blake took advantage of Atlanta's depleted secondary and produced his best game of the season. Blake rebounded from the worst game of his career by throwing four touchdown passes Sunday, leading the Cincinnati Bengals to a 41-31 victory over the Falcons. Blake threw a pair of touchdown passes in a 17-point first quarter--Cincinnati's biggest of the season--as the Bengals quickly recovered from their first loss under Bruce Coslet.
