Merely touching his swollen right ring finger made Michigan wide receiver Tai Streets grimace in pain, and he didn't bother trying to flex his left thumb because he knew it was too stiff to move much. He had dislocated the thumb in October and the ring finger in November, playing much of the season in intense pain that would have driven most players to the sidelines.

Garrison Hearst was solid, and Michael Vick was exciting. Still, the San Francisco 49er receivers stole the show. Jose Cortez kicked a 24-yard field goal with 10:56 left in overtime as the 49ers rallied to beat the Atlanta Falcons, 16-13, Sunday in a game featuring the limited debut of Vick and the return of Hearst.

SETTING IT UP Michigan, leading, 14-13, early in the fourth quarter, had second and 13 at the Washington State 23. HOW IT HAPPENED Quarterback Brian Griese bootlegged to the right while receivers Tai Streets and Charles Woodson streaked down the left sidelines. Tailback Chris Howard drifted into the right flank, drawing the cornerback. Meanwhile, tight end Jerame Tuman raced from the left side of the line diagonally toward the right side of the end zone.

As Ahmed Plummer raced downfield for his game-breaking interception return, a white-haired man with a headset ran right along with him. Dennis Erickson promised more aggression and enthusiasm when he took charge of the San Francisco 49ers. The new coach backed up those words with a joyful sideline sprint that was one of countless high points in his 49-7 debut victory Sunday over the bumbling Chicago Bears.

The San Francisco 49ers finally looked every bit as good as their record. Garrison Hearst rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown and Ahmed Plummer had two of San Francisco's four interceptions to lead the 49ers to their first shutout of the season, a 35-0 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night. During their implausible run to a tie for the NFL's best record at 9-2, the 49ers specialized in escaping from trouble.

After his mistakes helped Arkansas get back in the game, Tom Brady finally relaxed and led No. 15 Michigan to victory in the Citrus Bowl. Brady threw two interceptions but then led two scoring drives in the final six minutes Friday as the Wolverines came back to beat the No. 11 Razorbacks, 45-31. "I don't exactly know why it loosens you up," said Brady, whose 21-yard pass to DiAllo Johnson gave the Wolverines the lead for good with 2:25 left.

Even in victory, No. 6 Michigan didn't look so hot. And Notre Dame? Well, the Irish played their most inspiring game under new Coach Bob Davie, but the Wolverines won, 21-14, on Saturday, sending Notre Dame (1-3) to its first three-game losing streak in 12 years. Michigan (3-0), outplayed in the first half, struck for two touchdowns in the first 5:39 of the second half and survived three fourth-quarter fumbles for the narrow victory.

David Terrell agreed to a five-year contract with the Chicago Bears Sunday, ending a holdout that kept the first-round draft choice from the first nine days of practice. Terrell, a wide receiver from Michigan and the eighth player chosen in April's draft, had been the Bears' only unsigned draft choice. He is expected to join practice today. The team had a day off Sunday. Terrell is highest-drafted receiver the Bears have had since Curtis Conway was the seventh pick in 1993.

When Terrell Owens returns to the San Francisco 49ers today, his teammates will be celebrating consecutive victories for the first time in more than a year. Charlie Garner rushed for two touchdowns and Jeff Garcia passed for 220 yards and another score Sunday as the 49ers held off a late rally by Jake Plummer to beat the Arizona Cardinals, 27-20. The 49ers have won two in a row for the first time since the third and fourth weeks of last season--and they did it without Owens, their top receiver.

Michael Vick isn't going to surprise the Philadelphia Eagles. After leading the Atlanta Falcons to a stunning 27-7 road upset of the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, the 22-year-old Vick will bring his elusive moves to Veterans Stadium this Saturday night for an NFC divisional playoff game against the Eagles. Philadelphia hasn't faced a quarterback with Vick's scrambling ability, but the Eagle defense should be prepared for him because they are used to playing against Donovan McNabb in practice.
