.Bucs' offense emerges in 27-10 victory over Lions

ASSOCIATED PRESS
Michael Husted opened the door
and the rest of the Tampa Bucca-
neers' offense followed yesterday.
Husted kicked a 52-yard field
goal on the final play of the first half
and the NFL's lowest scoring team
collected three third-quarter touch-
*downs en route to a 27-10 victory
over the Detroit Lions.
Craig Erickson completed 14 of
25 passes for 210 yards and two
touchdowns, while Reggie Cobb
rushed forone TD and 113 yards-
seven more than the entire Tampa
Bay team had gained on the ground
in its first three games.
The Bucs (1-3) began the day
9ranked 28th in total offense after
scoring only 27 points in lopsided
losses to the Kansas City Chiefs,
New York Giants and Chicago
Bears.
Detroit (3-2) entered as the NFC
Central Division leader but unsure
of where it actually stood because
the Lions had struggled to score and
had beaten three teams with a com-
*bined record of 1-11.
Lions coach Wayne Fontes was
hoping Andre Ware was the answer
at quarterback.
However, Detroit struggled
again after moving 80 yards in five
plays on its first possession to take
a 7-0 lead on a 20-yard touchdown
run by Barry Sanders.
Sanders, the NFL's leading
rusher, ran for 50 yards on the drive
and finished with 130 yards on 22
attempts.
Ware, however, missed open re-
ceivers and repeatedly threw into

coverage before finally throwing an
interception that set up Cobb's 3-
yard TDrun fora 17-10 Tampa Bay
lead.
Erik Kramer replaced Ware with
five minutes left in the third quarter
and wasn't any more effective. He
overthrew Herman Moore on his
first series and Tampa Bay's Joe
King intercepted to setanotherBucs
TD.
Erickson, in his third NFL start,
threw scoring passes of 15 yards to
Courtney Hawkins and 37 yards to
Ron Hall, the latter after King's
interception and 1-yard return to the
Detroit 40.
Tampa Bay's defense, ranked
26th before Sunday, held the Lions
to a field goal after the game-open-
ing drive and forced three turnovers.
Jason Hanson's 30-yard field
goal was set up by a questionable
official's call that allowed Tim
McKyer's fumble recovery and 23-
yard return to stand.
A penalty flag was thrown on
the play because the Lions appeared
to have too many men on the field.
The officials picked up the flag,
though, after determining that no
official had time to count the num-
ber of players on the field before
Tampa Bay's quick snap.
Ware completed 5-of-14 passes
for 56 yards. Kramer was 11-of-24
for 120 yards.
Philadelphia 35, N.Y. Jets 30
Randall Cunningham broke his
left leg in the Philadelphia Eagles'
35-30 comeback victory over the

New York Jets yesterday. He will
be sidelined eight to 10 weeks and
may need surgery. Cunningham
missed virtually all of the 1991 sea-
son with torn knee ligaments.
Eagles backup Bubby Brister ral-
lied Philadelphia from a two-touch-
down deficit.
Eric Allen raced 94 yards with
an interception for the winning
touchdown.
When he got to the end zone, he
slapped hands with Cunningham,
who was oa crutches in the runway
leading to the dressing room.
Cunningham was injured in the
second quarter when he appeared to
take a mis-step and then was hit by
Marvin Washington and Scott
Mersereau.
Dallas 36, Green Bay 14
The Dallas Cowboys, who held
an audition for kickers two weeks
ago, apparently picked the rightguy.
Eddie Murray made five field
goals to lead the Cowboys to a 36-
14 victory over the Green Bay Pack-
ers on Sunday, overshadowing
Emmitt Smith's first full game since
he ended his celebrated holdout.
Smith gained an ordinary 71
yards on 13 carries with one TD for
Dallas. Murray was anything but
ordinary.
He nailed two 19-yard field
goals, a 33-yarder and a pair of
long-distance shots that went 48
and 50 yards. The 5-for-5 perfor-
mance tied a club record.
Murray joined the Super Bowl
champions after they released Lin

Elliott following an 0-2 start. They
held a dog and pony show at their
practice camp for a new kicker, and
Murray, 37 years old and a 14-year
veteran, won the job. The move
paid off big time against the Packers
as the Cowboys evened their record
at 2-2.
"It's important for me to have a
game like that for a new team,"
Murray said.
"I was in one of those good
grooves. It's important I contribute
because of the goals this team has."
Chicago 6, Atlanta 0
Butler kicked field goals of 52
and 48 yards as the Bears sent the
Flacons to their first shutout in five
years. It was the Sixth time this
season a team has won without ben-
efit of a touchdown.
With Billy Joe Tolliver replac-
ing injured Bobby Hebert at quar-
terback, Atlanta drove to Chicago's
8-yard line in the final minute but
lost the ballon downs with 1:25 left.
Kansas City 24, L.A. Raiders 9
The Kansas City Chiefs lost Joe
Montana to an injured, but still beat
theRaiders yesterday. Montana was
knocked out of a game for the sec-
ond time this season. Aaron Wallace
was penalized 15 yards for a late in
the second quarter hit but Montana
did not blame the injury on him.
"They say it happened when he
grabbed me but I don't remember,"
he said. "All I know is right before
I got to the sideline, just as I was
going out of bounds, I felt it go. It
was a little pop."
Montana hit 7 of 9 for 68 yards
andtwoTDs before the injury. Dave
Krieg took over and steered the
Chiefs to the triumph.
Denver 35, Indianapolis 13
Denver ended Indianapolis'
four-game road winning streak -
longes tin the NFL-asJohnElway
threw two TD passes. The Broncos
have won 19 of their last 21 games
in Mile High Stadium and are 96-30
at home since 1977.
New Orleans 37, L.A. Rams 6
New Orleans pushed its record
to 5-0 as Wade Wilson threw two
touchdown passes in a rout of the
Los Angeles Rams. Morten
Andersen kicked three field goals
for the victorious Saints.
San Francisco 38, Minnesota 19
San Francisco's offense stuttered
against Minnesota but defense and
special teams bailed out the 49ers
against Minnesota. Dexter Carter
returned a punt 72 yards for one
touchdown and Eric Davis returned
aninterception 41 yards for another.

after being injured in the second quarter of his game against the New York
Jets at Giants Stadium yesterday. However, the Eagles battled back from a
two-touchdown deficit to defeat the New York Jets, 35-30. Bubby Brister will
replace Cunningham for the eight to 10 weeks the Eagles quarterback will
miss.
