The thrill of a dramatic 10-9 victory over the Atlanta Falcons was tinged with regret for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints' 10-6 record, second best in franchise history, wasn't good enough to get New Orleans into the playoffs. The Saints were eliminated by Philadelphia's 23-7 win over Dallas Sunday. The Saints needed to win and have both the Rams and Eagles lose in order to earn their second consecutive wild-card berth. The Saints were 12-3 in 1987, their first-ever winning season.

The writers of this letter have been longtime Ram fans and season ticket-holders. We have watched a team rich with history, pride and leadership descend to a level of selfish disarray under the ownership of Georgia Frontiere and parsimony of John Shaw. We speak for a much larger group of Ram fans who still live and die with and support the team but who have had their enthusiasm and pride stripped away. There is no joy in being a Ram fan anymore. The fans of Baltimore and St. Louis are understandably filled with great expectation and hope.

Art Monk said the Washington Redskins knew exactly what they had to do. "We knew we had to go out and put some points on the board pretty quick," Monk said of a 27-10 halftime deficit.

The Pack keeps coming back, mainly because it keeps falling way behind. For the fourth consecutive week, the Green Bay Packers came from far back in the second half and scored a 23-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday when rookie Chris Jacke kicked a 22-yard field goal with 1:42 left. "You look at all the games so far and I could be in a lot of these situations," Jacke said after his third field goal of the game capped a 17-point fourth quarter.

The question has been asked since they won the Super Bowl, and nobody on the Washington Redskins has the answer yet. "Can we repeat? That's my favorite question. I know all of you want me to say, 'Yes,' " Redskin Coach Joe Gibbs said at a fans' luncheon Friday. "Can we be hungry again, and can we really go at it again and do what it takes to be the best in the NFL? I don't know. I hope so." The hunger is the key, Gibbs and his players say.

Michael Haynes wound up on his back, but ended up exactly where he wanted to be. Haynes, a rookie from Northern Arizona, fell down but still held on to a 37-yard touchdown pass with 11:20 left Sunday to give the Atlanta Falcons a 17-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Well, it was kind of mushy out there," Haynes said of the field conditions after rain fell most of the game. "Chris put the ball in there, but I had to kind of throttle down for it.
