At the time, Jeff George felt only the pain of being body-slammed into the ground. By the end of the game, he felt thankful for being hit that hard. George had four touchdown passes for the Oakland Raiders in a 35-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. But the play that turned the game around was a poorly thrown pass while he was being knocked down.

Coach Mike Martz's gamble and Marshall Faulk's gallop gave the struggling St. Louis Rams the boost they needed. Trailing the Chicago Bears, 14-3, in the third quarter Sunday, Martz signaled his offense to go for it on fourth and one from the Ram 40-yard line. And Faulk made the decision click. He broke off a 52-yard run that set up a touchdown -- getting the Rams back in the game -- and they rallied to beat the Bears, 23-21, on Jeff Wilkins' 31-yard field goal with 38 seconds left.

Denver center Wayne Cooper said he was responsible for allowing Jeff Wilkins to score 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter Saturday, a performance that lifted the Utah Jazz to a 131-123 victory over the Nuggets in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference semifinal playoff series. "Jeff hurt us down the stretch, and that's my fault," Cooper said. "He's the man who beat us. I take the blame for that. He was my man, and I let him beat me."

The Denver Broncos were a field goal away from replacing Brian Griese with Steve Beuerlein in the fourth quarter. It's a good thing for the Broncos that St. Louis kicker Jeff Wilkins missed. Griese threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns and led a 71-yard drive for the deciding score as the Broncos beat the Rams, 23-16, Sunday. Griese played a solid first half--10 for 16 for 110 yards--but was booed after two interceptions and a fumble in the third quarter.

An off-game by Steve Young didn't stop the San Francisco 49ers from dominating the St. Louis Rams again. Young had his first multi-interception game in nearly two years but still had three touchdown passes and and Darnell Walker had two first-half interceptions that led to scores as the 49ers defeated the Rams for the 16th consecutive time, 28-10, Sunday. "They made the plays when they had to. We made none," Ram cornerback Todd Lyght said.

Talk about starting the game off with a bang. The Atlanta Falcons' Darrick Vaughn returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. On the next play, the Rams' Tony Horne returned the kickoff 103 yards to tie the score, 7-7, with only 36 seconds elapsed. It was the first time in NFL history that a game started with back-to-back kickoff returns for touchdowns. Vaughn took Jeff Wilkins' kick at the four and went straight up the middle.

San Francisco's starting left tackle Kirk Scrafford will sit out six to 10 weeks after severely spraining his right ankle in the 49ers' 16-13 victory over the San Diego Chargers, Coach George Seifert said Sunday. Muscle and cartilage above and below the ankle were torn, and team doctor Michael Dillingham told Seifert it probably would heal faster if it had been broken.

Another day, another kicker for the 49ers. Tony Zendejas was released after making only one of three field-goal attempts in three weeks with the team, and the 49ers made their third kicking hire of the season when they signed Jeff Wilkins. Wilkins, a second-year player from Youngstown State, originally was an undrafted free agent signed by Dallas in 1994. He was cut in training camp and moved on to Philadelphia, where he handled kickoff duties for six games last season.

ST. LOUIS -- It was the kind of simple catch Dante Hall has made many times, camped under a punt, waiting to make the catch. This time, late in the fourth quarter Sunday, he dropped it. Marcus Hudson recovered for San Francisco, setting up the winning field goal in the 49ers' 17-16 win over St. Louis. Jeff Wilkins missed a 56-yard field-goal try with 59 seconds to play, the ball falling about a yard short as the Rams fell to 0-2.

Pace Mannion scored all of his nine points in the final period and Mark Eaton scored five of his eight in the last three minutes to spark the Utah Jazz to a come-from-behind 103-100 National Basketball Assn. victory over the Golden State Warriors Monday night. Utah (12-8) trailed by as many as 14 points in the second half. But the Jazz, playing without Rickey Green and scoring leader Adrian Dantley, received a superb effort from Mannion, Eaton, John Stockton, Jeff Wilkins and Bobby Hansen.
