Lewis runs wild on Browns


Sept. 15
Dick's Stock Watch identifies whose stock is up and whose is down over the past week across the world of sports.

Jamal Lewis -- The Baltimore Ravens' running back broke the NFL single-game rushing record, previously held by Cincinnati Bengals' RB Corey Dillon, gaining 295 yards against the Browns. Some people don't run for 295 yards in two months! What makes this more amazing is that Lewis told the Browns' defense beforehand he was going to do it baby!

Michigan Wolverines -- Coach Lloyd Carr, Chris Perry, John Navarre and Co. dominated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 38-0. The game was over by the time it went on TV after the Ohio State game went three OTs! Hail to the Victors!

Detroit Shock -- The Bill Laimbeer-coached Shock are one game away from an outstanding turnaround. They were one of the worst teams in the WNBA last season and now they're one game away from winning the title. Unbelievable, baby!

Florida Marlins -- Despite blowing a lead on Sunday, the Marlins are hot, taking the lead in the NL wild card race by going 13-3 in their last 16 games.

Roy Halladay -- The magnificent right-hander is the first pitcher to win 20 games this season.

Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers and Washington Redskins -- These three teams are all surprising the NFL at 2-0. Last season they were all went 7-9 and this season, they're dominating baby! This past weekend, 'Skins QB Patrick Ramsey threw for 357 yards while Panthers' coach John Fox's defense and special teams did a great job winning at Tampa Bay in overtime.

Notre Dame -- The Fighting Irish had no fight in them last weekend. They were manhandled by the Wolverines and may need to revamp the offense.

St. Louis Cardinals -- Tony La Russa's team was swept by the Astros this weekend. St. Louis has now lost four straight and is 5 back in the NL Central. La Russa also said umpire Jerry Crawford was out to get his team. Come on, Tony!

Arizona Cardinals -- The Cardinals were shutout by the Seahawks and it was a NC (no contest)!

Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan State Spartans -- Two Big Ten football teams upset at home by UNLV and Louisiana Tech!

Texas Longhorns -- What happened to coach Mack Brown's team? They lost at home to Arkansas. Shock City, baby!

Philadelphia Eagles -- The Eagles, in the NFC title game the last two years, are 0-2 this season (both at home) after losing five turnovers and falling to New England.
