For a guy with the big title, the office doesn't have much of a view. Even on the sunniest of days, Rob Burnett looks out of his ground-floor window onto a cinder-block wall painted several shades of dirty beige. It's certainly not Broadway, which is where Burnett has resided the last four years as executive producer of "The Late Show With David Letterman."

All the Cleveland Browns talked about after losing in Pittsburgh on Dec. 18 was getting another shot at the Steelers, who kept them from winning the AFC Central title by beating them twice. They get that chance on Saturday in the first Brown-Steeler playoff game in the rivalry's 45-year history. The war of words has begun. "I want Pittsburgh bad. We owe them, plain and simple," Brown defensive end Rob Burnett said. "They're a good team, but we're also a good team. We're going to show them that."

In an age where players like San Francisco's Terrell Owens rush to midfield after a touchdown to taunt opponents, Rob Burnett's attitude is refreshing. He has sympathy for the opposition. Imagine that. The Baltimore Raven defensive end sent Cincinnati Bengal quarterback Akili Smith out of last Sunday's game with a concussion. "I try to play hard and fair. I talked to [Smith] after the game, and I'm glad he was all right because I'm not trying to hurt anybody," Burnett said.

Coach Art Shell just laughed when asked about the 10 Cleveland Browns listed as questionable because of injuries for their game Sunday at the Coliseum. "If you believe that," Shell told reporters Thursday, "I've got some land I want to sell you." According to the NFL injury report released Thursday, the Browns were a beat-up team after their 23-13 victory over San Francisco on Monday night. Wide receiver Michael Jackson (jaw) was listed as probable.

Rob Burnett, executive producer of "Late Show With David Letterman," is defending the program's treatment of women after the National Organization for Women complained that Letterman's relationship with female staffers created a "toxic environment." In a letter of response to NOW, released Tuesday by the organization, Burnett said that the show has long taken seriously the issue of respect for women in the workplace. "As an employee of David Letterman's since 1985, I have personally found the work environment on his shows to be fair, professional and entirely merit-based at all times," he wrote on Oct. 15. Burnett said that 58% of the "Late Show" staff are women, including three of the show's four executive producers during the last nine years.

Baltimore (10-6) at Miami (11-5) 1 p.m. Sunday, Channel 2 The line: Miami by 2. Injuries: BAL--CB James Trapp (groin), DE Rob Burnett (calf). MIA--WR Chris Chambers (ankle), WR Oronde Gadsden (hamstring), FB Rob Konrad (rib). Story line: Baltimore had to win two playoff games on the road last season in its march to the Super Bowl, so visiting Pro Player Stadium shouldn't be daunting. But Miami went 7-1 at home this season and has won five of six home playoff games. Both teams rely on defense.

David Letterman's latest "Late Show" prognosis: Look for Dave's return next Monday, hosting three nights a week initially, with guest hosts to fill out the week, says a high-ranking executive close to the show. It had been rumored that Letterman, still recovering from quintuple-bypass heart surgery performed Jan. 14, would return tonight, a forecast that has now been pushed back a week.

The Baltimore Ravens soared to new heights Sunday with the first shutout in franchise history and an unprecedented fourth consecutive victory. Unfortunately, Baltimore ultimately was denied its most coveted goal--a playoff berth. Matt Stover kicked five field goals and the Ravens recorded a season-high seven sacks in ending the Cincinnati Bengals' late-season surge with a 22-0 victory.

The producers of CBS' "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" apologized Friday after repeating an episode in which the host spoofed Lakers announcer Chick Hearn, who died earlier this month. On Thursday, the network played an installment of the late-night show, originally broadcast in mid-June, which featured a comedy segment in which Kilborn poked fun at Hearn's performance during the elaborate celebration that followed the Lakers' third consecutive championship.

For three quarters, Tony Banks played just well enough to avoid ruining a brilliant effort by the Baltimore Raven defense. Then he gave Doug Flutie not one, but two chances to engineer yet another comeback victory. Despite struggling for much of the game, Flutie was more than equal to the task. Flutie ran for 17 yards on a fourth-down play, then flipped a five-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Linton with 1:35 left Sunday to rally the Bills to a 13-10 victory.
