Esperanza safety Anton Hector, a Times All-Orange County first-team selection, said Thursday he has made an oral commitment to play football at Texas. The 6-foot-1, 172-pound Hector had six interceptions last season and was an All-Sunset League selection. Hector, who will major in business, said he chose Texas because "it's a good program and they showed the most interest from the start." Hector is also a standout hurdler and sprinter on the Esperanza track and field team.

Mickey Shuler wasn't the primary receiver, and he didn't run the exact pattern called for. What he did was get open behind the Buffalo defense with 57 seconds remaining Sunday, and quarterback Ken O'Brien found him with a pass for a 36-yard touchdown. Pat Leahy kicked the decisive extra point, and the Jets had a 14-13 victory over the Bills, who have lost 19 straight road games. "I did the same thing the play before," Shuler said.

Barry Bennett of the New York Jets blocked a 46-yard field-goal attempt and teammate Rich Miano scooped up the ball and ran 67 yards for a touchdown to give the Jets a dramatic 27-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. "I heard the block and the ball popped up right into my hands," Miano, a backup safety, said. The Jets (6-5) are tied with Buffalo and Indianapolis atop the AFC East. The Bengals (3-8) have lost six games in the final minutes this season.

When Steve Grogan is hurting, he knows he can get well against the New York Jets. Grogan, coming off neck and shoulder injuries that sidelined him for three games, passed for four touchdowns in the first half Sunday to lead the New England Patriots to a 42-20 victory over the Jets. Grogan improved his career record against the Jets to 11-5. He has thrown at least three touchdown passes against them in six different games. "I don't feel I get more excited to play the Jets," Grogan said.

When the New York Jets drafted Ken O'Brien in the first round out of UC Davis 2 1/2 years ago, there were plenty of disbelievers. O'Brien, showing that he belongs, passed for five touchdowns Sunday to lead the Jets to a 62-28 rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I believe in myself," O'Brien said. "I believe I can complete any pass I throw." O'Brien completed 23 of 30 passes for 367 yards in less than three quarters. Three of his touchdowns went to tight end Mickey Shuler.

The Indianapolis Colts have found a winning formula with a seldom used weapon--the wishbone offense. Rookie Chris Chandler and two designated wishbone quarterbacks engineered a 38-14 victory Sunday over the New York Jets. Indianapolis began using the wishbone in certain situations 3 weeks ago. The victory was the Colts' fourth straight, the team's longest winning streak in 11 years. "Obviously we're very delighted," Coach Ron Meyer said.

Some teams turn conservative in the shadow of their own goalposts. Not the New York Jets. Ken O'Brien threw three touchdown passes, one coming on a team-record 96-yard play to Wesley Walker, to ignite the New York Jets to a 27-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills Sunday. "We were backed up there pretty tight," Jet Coach Joe Walton said. "I thought it was the right time and the right situation to try for the long gainer."

Adrian Murrell ran over the Cincinnati Bengals, ran around them and, ultimately, ran them into the ground. Murrell matched a team record with 40 carries Sunday, picking up 156 yards as the New York Jets ground out a 31-14 victory that left Bill Parcells--he of the grind-it-out offensive philosophy--smiling afterward. "I'm pleased," the hard-to-please Parcells said. "I thought we did a pretty good job today. I think our running game won it.
