ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons picked up their first victory without quarterback Michael Vick, and they beat Vick's former backup to get it. Joey Harrington threw two touchdown passes to Michael Jenkins, 47-year-old Morten Andersen kicked four field goals and the Falcons defeated Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans, 26-16, Sunday. Harrington, who took over as starter for the Falcons (1-3) after Schaub was traded and Vick became embroiled in a dogfighting case, completed 23 of 29 for 223 yards.

Hardly anyone thinks Joey Harrington can hack it as a starting NFL quarterback. Hardly anyone thinks he can salvage the Atlanta Falcons from the wreckage of losing their star, Michael Vick, to indefinite suspension. Harrington couldn't care less what people think. "So what?" he said. "So what?" If common wisdom holds that he should be feeling the heat, desperate to resurrect his career in the most desperate of situations, Harrington doesn't worry about that either.

Detroit Lion rookie quarterback Joey Harrington left Sunday's game against Tampa Bay at Pontiac, Mich., because of an irregular heartbeat and was taken to the hospital for tests and observation.

Oregon quarterback Joey Harrington is a Heisman Trophy candidate who has thrown 22 touchdown passes. Receiver Keenan Howry has 44 catches and is a breathtaking punt returner. Running backs Onterrio Smith and Maurice Morris have combined for 1,662 yards and 13 touchdowns. Yet the difference against UCLA might be tight end Justin Peelle, a 6-foot-5 senior from Fresno.

Bobby Engram understands why his younger teammates get most of the publicity. Sometimes, though, the old man of the Seattle receiving corps can't be ignored. Engram had an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown and caught a 34-yard scoring pass to help the Seahawks to a 35-14 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The 30-year-old Engram is something of a father figure to younger receivers Darrell Jackson, 24, and Koren Robinson, 23. "It's kind of their show," Engram said.

His second cousin is Detroit Lion quarterback Joey Harrington, a fact that Padraig Harrington of Dublin, Ireland, is quick to point out. "Back in Ireland, the Irish say everybody is related to everybody anyway," Harrington said. "Terrible. I'm not even the top sportsman in the family."

Ah, late October in Detroit. The leaves change, the temperature drops and the Lions begin in earnest their annual migration to NFL irrelevance. This season, though, the team's rite of autumn has taken a hard left. It's almost November, and the Lions are playing a game today that actually means something. They play host to Chicago for first place in the NFC North. Both teams are 3-3.

Not halfway through their season, the San Diego Chargers already have lost as many games as last season. Not that LaDainian Tomlinson & Co. have crashed and burned. The Chargers (3-4) could just as easily be undefeated or at least leading their division as scrambling to climb back to .500 going into Sunday's AFC West matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) at San Diego. The 1 p.m. game will be shown on Channel 2.

Joey Harrington already had the look, the arm and the bank account of a starting NFL quarterback. Now he has a victory. The rookie from Oregon threw for 267 yards and a touchdown, and didn't make any costly mistakes, as the Lions beat New Orleans, 26-21, Sunday to hand the Saints their first loss. Harrington gave the Lions their first win of the season and only the third in 20 games for Coach Marty Mornhinweg.
