Quarterbacks were catching touchdown passes and points were racked up at a record pace. And when it was over, a running back born in the Virgin Islands, blind in one eye, walked away with the MVP award. The Blue-Gray game, often a dreary affair dominated by defense, turned into a celebration of offense on Christmas Day. The teams combined for 738 yards and set a record for total points in the Blue's 38-27 victory.

Robbins, a 6-foot-3, 305-pounder, started every game at center for TCU as a senior last year. As a junior in 1993, he played every offensive play of the season at strong-side tackle.

Ronnie Harris returned a punt 78 yards for a touchdown and caught a 39-yard pass for another for the Seattle Seahawks, who beat the Raiders, 24-19, Thursday night in the newly expanded and refurbished Oakland Coliseum. The game drew 38,219, well short of a 62,500-seat sellout. Seattle (2-0) built a 21-0 lead in the first half, starting with Rick Mirer's touchdown pass to Mack Strong late in the first quarter. Harris scored Seattle's second touchdown when he broke through Oakland's punt coverage.

The Oakland Raiders found relief Sunday. The New York Jets found nothing but more pain and more defeat. The struggling Raiders came alive behind rookie tight end Rickey Dudley and second-year running back Joe Aska for a 34-13 rout of the hapless Jets. Oakland (2-4) won for only the second time in its last 12 games, while the Jets are off to their first 0-6 start ever. The Jets also lost quarterback Neil O'Donnell for four to six weeks because of a separated right shoulder.

The Raiders' game Monday night in Oakland against the Denver Broncos is a key battle of AFC West opponents. It also is Oakland's chance for revenge against a team that beat the Raiders twice last season. And, as with most NFL games, there's a personal rivalry involved in the contest. In this case, it's Denver Coach Mike Shanahan, who was fired in October 1989 after going 8-12 in 1 1/2 seasons as the Raiders' head coach.

Tommy Maddox passed for 240 yards and three touchdowns and Saladin McCullough rushed for 124 yards and scored twice Sunday as the Xtreme defeated the Birmingham Thunderbolts, 35-26, before 11,197 at Birmingham, Ala. The victory gave the Xtreme (4-2) sole possession of first place in the XFL West Division. There were five lead changes before the Xtreme took the lead for good on Jose Cortez's 19-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. The kick was set up by an interception by Errick Herrin.

Brett Favre, in his first game since completing a stay at a rehabilitation center for his addiction to painkillers, completed five of 10 passes for 54 yards as the Green Bay Packers defeated the New England Patriots, 24-7, Friday night at Green Bay, Wis. Favre looked trim after losing 14 pounds during the 46-day rehabilitation that ended June 28. He played all but the final two series of the first half before giving way to Doug Pederson, who completed 13 of 19 passes for 125 yards.

You're down to your final pick in the NFL draft. One hundred and eighty-nine players have already been taken. Your chances of getting a quality player are minimal at best. If you're the Raiders, what do you do? What the Raiders always do--the unorthodox.

With two meetings to come in the regular season, Seattle and Oakland are downplaying the Seahawks' exhibition victory. "We play these guys two more times in games that matter," Seahawk quarterback Rick Mirer said. "I'm sure they're over there thinking we can have this one as long as they win the ones that count." Mirer threw a touchdown pass and Ronnie Harris scored on a punt return and on a pass reception as the Seahawks held off Oakland 24-19 Thursday night.
