Victor Kiam, New England Patriot owner, has to come up with $38 million by Oct. 10 to pay off partner Fran Murray or lose control of the NFL franchise. Under their ownership contract, if Kiam cannot produce the money, Murray will run the team with the help of the league for 120 days, during which time it would be sold.

The Dallas Cowboys traded linebacker Jesse Solomon to the New England Patriots for an undisclosed draft choice next season. Solomon, who came to the Cowboys in 1989 from the Minnesota Vikings as part of the Herschel Walker trade, walked out of the Cowboys' training camp Aug. 21 after hearing he had been demoted to the second team. He later was suspended. Derek Kennard, right guard for the New Orleans Saints, suffered a torn pectoral muscle while lifting weights and might miss playing time.

Mike Lynn, general manager of the Minnesota Vikings, had lavish praise for linebackers David Howard and Jesse Solomon and cornerback Isaac Holt of the Dallas Cowboys recently. "I think Jesse Solomon is a Pro Bowl player," Lynn said. "I think Jesse Solomon will be in the Pro Bowl in a matter of a year or two. I think Ike Holt is by far one of the most talented corners in the NFL. And I think David Howard is a starter on most NFL clubs and will play another five years." Why all this gushing?

NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue let stand a trade involving linebacker Jesse Solomon and four NFL teams--the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Solomon originally went from Minnesota to Dallas in the 1989 deal that sent Herschel Walker to Minnesota. The deal included a stipulation that Solomon could not be traded to another team in the NFC Central Division.

Eric Dickerson would have preferred a victory to 100 yards. He got neither as the Minnesota Vikings stuffed the Indianapolis Colts' running star in the last 2 1/2 quarters to win a critical game. "We knew this was kind of a hump game," cornerback Carl Lee said Sunday after his Vikings held Dickerson to 72 yards in 22 carries to defeat the Colts, 12-3. "We knew if we could just win this one, we could go into our last 4 games and not be playing in an elimination situation."

Page, Eller and Marshall are long gone, but the Minnesota defense is again playing like a purple gang. The Vikings extended their string of quarters without allowing a touchdown to 17 Sunday while routing the New Orleans Saints, 45-3. "I'm starting to get a little scared of ourselves," defensive tackle Keith Millard said. "You can tell the intensity in the locker room before the game. It's almost too quiet in the locker room. We just lined up and whatever they brought to us, we stopped."
