Jake Plummer brought happy memories back to Arizona. The slender quarterback, criticized as a one-year wonder after taking the Cardinals to the playoffs in 1998 and then flopping last year when he had a hand injury, passed the Cardinals to a 32-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night. Plummer passed to David Boston for 63 yards on the Cardinals' last possession--a gain to the Dallas 22.

Four hikers were stranded between two rain-swollen waterways in Malibu Creek State Park on Saturday night as rescuers attempted to reach them. Because of the stormy weather, a helicopter could not access the area, which is near the 1900 block of Las Virgenes Road between a rock pool and a creek, said Michael Pittman, a supervising dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The hikers, who called for help about 7 p.m., are not in danger, but a search-and-rescue team was expected to take four or five hours to bring them out of the canyon.

Jake Plummer is up to his old tricks. After his three first-quarter interceptions helped the Philadelphia Eagles take a 21-point lead, Plummer--the comeback artist--led the Arizona Cardinals to a 25-24 victory Sunday, with Chris Jacke making a 31-yard field goal as time ran out. "With 12 minutes left, I don't think I had to say it, but I did anyway. I said, 'We're down, but we're still in it,' " Plummer said.
