COLTS 39, BENGALS 26
The Bengals have fallen so far that the 14th game of the regular season looked more like their exhibition game in August against the Colts. Except they were crisper then, and only got beat by three.

Sports Headlines for  Monday, December 14, 1998

Paul Daugherty column
No answers to Blake's prayers here
INDIANAPOLIS - His fate is in God's hands now, Jeff Blake said, so here's hoping the almighty has better hands than Brian Milne. Blake vowed to play "his game" Sunday against the Colts, though he hadn't played it in so long, I'd forgotten what it was.


Tim Sullivan column
Rebuilding goes on and on
INDIANAPOLIS - John Copeland is stuck. He is in the first year of a five-year contract and the sixth year of an endless rebuilding effort.
Pickens watches kids play
INDIANAPOLIS - Wide receiver Carl Pickens was on the sidelines in the last 10 minutes of Sunday's 39-26 loss to the Colts as coach Bruce Coslet finds himself in a second exhibition season.
BENGALS NOTEBOOK
INDIANAPOLIS - Jeff Blake will start when the Bengals play Pittsburgh Sunday.
Davey would love Larkin
NASHVILLE - Since Davey Johnson doesn't own a ballclub or wield a general manager's checkbook, anything he says about player acquisitions can be filed under the category of wishful thinking.
'Outraged' Astros withdraw from Clemens derby
NASHVILLE - The Houston Astros angrily dropped out of the running for pitcher Roger Clemens on Sunday.
Denver perfect no more
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Rest easy, '72 Dolphins. The Broncos are no longer perfect.
UC's Martin takes no offense to lack of offense
He is the closest thing the Cincinnati Bearcats have to a star, so it was not surprising Kenyon Martin had some complaining to do after getting off 10 shots in their season opener.
DUCKS 2, BEARS 2
HERSHEY, Pa. - The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks began a five-game road trip with a 2-2 tie against the Hershey Bears on Sunday.
HOCKEY NOTES
Rarely do a player's season statistics sum up his year more than Tony Mohagen's do. The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks rookie forward has played in just one game, compiling five penalty minutes.

Here's a question for you: Would Mike Brown be in the spot he's in if not for talk radio?
