In Orchard Park, N.Y., the Buffalo Bills needed just a pinch of Doug Flutie's magic to spark a 16-14 victory over the sputtering Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL's final preseason game last night.
Flutie threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jay Riemersma on Buffalo's first possession, and Steve Christie added three field goals.
For Pittsburgh, Mike Tomczak threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Will Blackwell with 12 seconds to play, and Kris Brown kicked two field goals, including a 49-yarder.
Flutie set up the touchdown with a 29-yard sideline pass to Eric Moulds and then found Riemersma behind safety Chris Oldham for a 7-0 lead.
The Bills (3-1) beat the Steelers for the first time in a preseason game as the Steelers (1-3) continued to have problems with their offense.
* JETS: Wide receiver Wayne Chrebet underwent surgery on his broken left foot as doctors placed a screw in the foot to speed healing.
Chrebet was injured without being touched on a first-quarter pass play in Friday night's 38-17 preseason victory over Minnesota. He is expected to miss six weeks after not missing a game in his first four NFL seasons.
* DOLPHINS: Richmond Webb conceded defeat in his contract dispute and accepted an offer the team made in February.
The seven-time Pro Bowl tackle reported for practice after accepting a one-year, $3.45 million offer. Webb had wanted a long-term contract worth up to $6 million per year, but he had limited leverage because the Dolphins designated him their franchise player last winter.
"He's a very good player, and he's going to make a lot of money," Coach Jimmy Johnson said. "We'll continue to talk about a long-term contract."
* EAGLES: Two weeks ago, guard George Hegamin was demoted from his starting job. Yesterday, Hegamin was given a one-way ticket off the team.
The offensive lineman was the most notable of the eight players the team released as it pared the roster to 61 players.
* RAMS: Offensive line coach Jim Hanifan was arrested early yesterday morning for driving while intoxicated.
Hanifan was driving in St. Charles, Mo., when he was pulled over on a routine traffic stop about 3 a.m. After administering a field sobriety test, the arresting office took Hanifan into custody, said St. Charles Cpl. Ron Bextermueller.
