"49ERS LOSE TO RAMS ON 'FLUKE' PLAYS," screamed the page one banner of a San Francisco newspaper Tuesday morning. It seemed to reflect the opinion of some 49er players, including quarterback Joe Montana. Were the Rams lucky to win, 27-20? Let us count the ways. First quarter: First play of the game, 49er rookie Jerry Rice breaks a reverse for 41 yards, but the play is erased because Dwight Clark clips LeRoy Irvin, who might have tackled Rice. Ram break? Or San Francisco mistake?

Jerry Rice takes his record-setting exploits the same way he gathers in touchdown passes--in stride. Rice scored three touchdowns Sunday for the third time in four games and set two National Football League receiving records as the San Francisco 49ers rolled to a 35-7 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Rice was low-key, as usual, but said he was saving the game ball for his 6-month-old daughter.

For the first time this season, the New Orleans Saints grabbed a lead against a strong opponent and refused to let them back into the game. Rueben Mayes rushed for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns Sunday, and the New Orleans defense produced 4 turnovers as the Saints surprised the San Francisco 49ers, 23-10. One of Mayes' touchdowns went as designed, a four-yard run. The other was an improvisation. "I don't do that very often," Mayes said.

Forty-Niner safety Ronnie Lott was assessed a 10-yard personal foul penalty early in the third period when he threw two right forearms into the face of Eric Dickerson after a 20-yard run by Dickerson. Dickerson jumped up and bumped Lott. "We had some words," Dickerson said. "But then it was forgotten. A couple of plays later I told him 'Hey, we're better than that.' " Said Lott:"I was trying to get the team fired up. I wanted to get them a little more excited and wanted to create something.

Kicker Ray Wersching, who ranks ninth among National Football League all-time scoring leaders, and veteran running back Joe Cribbs, were released Monday by the San Francisco 49ers. Both players asked to be cut. Wersching, 38, played for the 49ers for 11 seasons and held most of the team's kicking records, including 190 field goals and 409 extra points. He broke into the NFL in 1973 with San Diego and scored 1,122 points in 16 seasons.

National Football League players made more money in 1984 than ever, according to a listing of salaries compiled by the NFL PLayers Assn. and published Sunday by the Dallas Morning News. Due largely to competition for players from the U.S. Football League, NFL salaries increased about 25% over 1983 levels after a 24% average jump over 1982, the newspaper said. According to the NFL Management Council, the average salary in 1984--including pro-rated signing bonuses--was $162,000.
