There were 37 individual or team Super Bowl records either set or tied Sunday. We're sure you know about the record for the longest field goal: Buffalo's Steve Christie kicked a 54-yarder. Tying the record for most Super Bowls won: the Cowboys, with four. But bet you didn't know that the teams also tied a record for fewest punt returns with two. They also tied a record for fewest touchdown passes from both teams, with zero.

The Philadelphia Eagles, searching for the right offensive line combination, have shuffled the deck, and the odd-man out is former first-round draft choice Antone Davis. Davis, a five-year veteran who has started in 60 of the 63 Eagle games in which he's played, was slated to start at right tackle.

The NCAA Division I Management Council has given final approval to a plan that would allow college athletes to have jobs. If approved by the Board of Directors next week, athletes who had completed their first year would be able to work beginning Aug. 1. The 15-member Board of Directors, which meets Tuesday in Indianapolis, delayed putting the plan, known as Proposition 62, into effect for one year at the urging of coaches and college presidents.

The Cincinnati Bengals beat the spread Sunday because they beat the spread. They beat the Buffalo Bills, 21-10, in the AFC championship game at blustery Riverfront Stadium because their rapidly maturing defense anticipated and adjusted to Buffalo's "spread" offense before the Bills even deployed it. Favored by 4 points, the Bengals won by 11 because they replaced a linebacker and a run-oriented safety with a cornerback and a pass-oriented safety at the outset of the second half.

There was a rumble in the Jungle after all Sunday. Unfortunately for the Buffalo Bills, it came in their locker room after the final gun had sounded on their season. It ended with teammate against teammate in a verbal confrontation that vented some of the pent-up emotion accumulated on a long and frustrating afternoon at Riverfront Stadium, known as the Jungle because of the wild habits of its untamed fans.

The Buffalo Bills are in town this week with their best Super Bowl team yet. And they know, now, exactly what it takes to beat an NFC champion. To evaluate the Bills today, those are the starting-point facts for Coach Marv Levy or anyone else. Levy's players, unlike some who represented the AFC in the 1980s, are experienced, determined, Super Bowl-seasoned, and ready. That leaves only one question about this team: Is it good enough? From the Buffalo side, that is the question of the game.

The Raiders took a reality check in this cold, cold heart of the outside world and flunked. Any resemblance between them and a playoff team was coincidental, not to mention fleeting. The Buffalo Bills, a real playoff team, brushed them aside Sunday like a bunch of punks, 37-21, making you wonder if the Raiders still have their own hearts set on the postseason, and if so, why?

OK, what's wrong with the Chicago Bears, who have lost four in a row and are 4-7 after their 17-3 setback against Green Bay? Mike Ditka, you have the stage. "Well, this is starting to sound like a broken record," the fiery coach said. "We have to give them credit. They played good and kept us off balance. They played better and the team that plays best should win the game." Ditka noted the Bears were called for four penalties in a row at one point.
