Even though the Cleveland Browns were virtually without a quarterback, the New York Jets felt they earned what they got. Ken O'Brien passed for 256 yards Sunday and the Jets scored a 23-3 victory over the decimated Browns, picked to win the American Football Conference but in deep trouble after only two weeks. Cleveland (1-1), already missing quarterback Bernie Kosar and top receiver Webster Slaughter, lost backup quarterback Gary Danielson to a broken ankle late in the third quarter.

For most of Sunday's game against the New York Jets, the Indianapolis Colts' offense found just about every way it could to blow scoring chances. Then Clarence Verdin found the best way to succeed--ensure that the offense wouldn't get the ball by returning a punt 49 yards for the winning touchdown as the Colts defeated the Jets, 17-10.

On a day when the weather dictated the game plan, the New England defense went on the offensive. Johnny Rembert recovered two fumbles and Lawrence McGrew had a pass interception in the third quarter that the Patriots used to score a 14-13 victory in the rain over the New York Jets for their first road victory this season. "Every halftime, we talk about turnovers and scoring on defense," McGrew said after he stole Ken O'Brien's pass on the first play of the second half.

Tenth-ranked Texas A&M knows its future includes a Cotton Bowl date on New Year's Day against Ohio State. The Texas football team, on the other hand, doesn't know if it even has a future under Coach Fred Akers. Texas A&M won its second consecutive Southwest Conference title by beating Texas, 16-3, Thursday night to complete a 9-2 season. The Aggies' third consecutive victory over the Longhorns plunged Texas to its first losing season in 30 years amid reports that Akers won't be back next year.

The goalposts were passed like yardsticks through Rich Stadium Sunday afternoon. The Buffalo Bills, the team by which the National Football League measured ineptitude 3 seasons ago, were standing tall as AFC East champions. Scott Norwood's 30-yard field goal 3:47 into overtime gave the Bills a 9-6 victory over the New York Jets Sunday and touched off a frenzied celebration as Bills' fans enjoyed clinching their first division title since 1980.

Louisiana State freshman quarterback Tommy Hodson apparently wasn't phased by opening his college football career against seventh-ranked Texas A&M. Playing in noisy Tiger Stadium, however, was a little distressing. "I'm still nervous. I guess that's normal when you go in front of 80,000 people," Hodson said after throwing two touchdown passes to pace the 14th-ranked Tigers to a 35-17 victory over the Aggies Saturday night.

Boomer Esiason still has the hot hand and now Ickey Woods has the hot feet. Esiason threw 3 touchdown passes in the first half and Woods ran for a career-high 139 yards and 2 touchdowns Sunday as the Bengals remained the NFL's only unbeaten team with a 36-19 victory over the New York Jets. "In the course of a good year, you've got to overcome a lot of hurdles," said Bengal Coach Sam Wyche, who saw his team overcome a 9-0 deficit. "They come in all sizes and shapes.

Playing at home hasn't been the best scenario for the New York Jets this year. But playing on the road has been worse for the Atlanta Falcons. The Jets, with Johnny Hector scoring on two short runs and the defense playing its best game of the year, beat the Falcons, 27-7, Sunday at the Meadowlands. It was New York's first home win after five defeats, while Atlanta dropped to 0-7 on the road. Both teams are 3-9.

On this day, the New York Jets found that two quarterbacks are better than one. Ken O'Brien replaced injured Pat Ryan and threw two touchdown passes that gave the New York Jets a 38-34 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins and Dan Marino, who threw five touchdown passes. "It felt great to play again," O'Brien said. "Pat was doing a fabulous job and the team was really coming off the ball. I haven't given a thought to being a reliever. I did what you're supposed to do."
