The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos Sunday despite an ignominious performance by Seahawk quarterback Dave Krieg. Krieg lost two fumbles to gain a share of the NFL's all-time lead in that category and also had two passes intercepted, but the Seahawk defense kept John Elway and Gaston Green under control for a 13-10 victory. "We were fortunate the running game was there, because the passing game sure wasn't," said Krieg, who completed nine of 19 passes for 70 yards.

Linebacker Derrick Thomas set an NFL record Sunday with seven sacks, but could only agonize over the one that got away. As time expired, Seattle's Dave Krieg wriggled free of Thomas and heaved a desperation 25-yard touchdown pass to Paul Skansi in the end zone. Norm Johnson kicked the extra point to give the Seahawks a 17-16 victory over Thomas and his stunned Kansas City Chiefs. "I'm glad they didn't call 'in the grasp,' " Krieg said with a smile. "He had his hands around my hips.

The El Camino baseball team is coming off its best season since 1959, and, despite having only two returning starters, the Warriors, who are ranked No. 6 in Southern California, are 16-7 and 3-1 in the South Coast Conference due mainly to strong hitting. "I think this is one of the two best teams I've ever had here," said sixth-year Coach Tom Hicks. "We'll definitely compete for the championship." El Camino won the SCC crown last year and made it to the semifinals of the regional tournament.

He was once a gold medal-winning Olympic runner, but he is 29 and the Raiders decided he couldn't keep pace with their fast, young receivers. So Tuesday, the team traded receiver Sam Graddy to the Rams for a conditional draft pick, the condition being that he makes the team. "We have a window until Monday to take a look at him," Ram Coach Chuck Knox said. "He's got world-class speed, which should be a plus for us. It gives us the deep threat. He's very good at beating the bump and run.

It figured that the Rams and Raiders, who took a decade to get together for this first intra-Los Angeles exhibition, would go ahead and take almost as long to finish the game. They threw interceptions, fumbled footballs, missed field goals, charged offsides numerous times, false started on many other occasions . . . all neatly packaged in the Rams' 19-16 overtime victory in front of 56,511 Saturday night at Anaheim Stadium. It was quite an exhibition, all right, almost four hours long.

Leading a new team into his old city, Chuck Knox won't allow himself to get lost in either sentimentality or public bitterness. But that doesn't mean he won't get lost. The Kingdome, where the Seahawks will play host to the Rams tonight at 6 in both teams' exhibition opener, is no longer home to Knox, and the visitors' locker room will be foreign territory for him.

Even in an exhibition game, even as he was surrounded by a new team, the old rule about the old coach still held Thursday night: Make serious errors against a Chuck Knox football team in the Kingdome, and you lose. Same old story. He looked his same, serious self during the Rams' 21-7 victory in their exhibition opener Thursday, wearing the same outfit--blue baseball cap, white shirt, dark pants and lock-jaw grin--he wore for nine seasons as the Seahawks' head coach.

With only five victories in hand, and their slate of games down to two, the Rams on Monday warmed up their valedictories for 1992. It has been a win-one, lose-two sort of season for the Rams--an up-and-down, stumble-around journey that Coach Chuck Knox says already has shown that the Rams have improved since going 3-13 last season. In the wake of Sunday's 37-14 defeat by the New Orleans Saints, Knox acknowledged that the Rams (5-9) are far from where he wants them to be.

Eager for a sequel to one of their most scintillating efforts in years, the Rams on Sunday fell a little short. Short of talent, short of patience, short of just about everything it takes to beat the New Orleans Saints, who took the Rams' six turnovers and varied assortment of other errors and turned them into 37 consecutive points. Two meaningless Ram touchdowns made the final score 37-14.
