The Dolphins crushed St Loius 41-22, but needed a favour from Denver quarter-back John Elway, who led his side to a comeback win, before the American Conference slot was secure. Atlanta also claimed a play-off against Green Bay after holding off San Francisco 27-28 - replacement quarter- back Bobby Herbert the hero. But the 49ers' Jerry Rice also took honours, breaking the NFL's all-time and single season receiving records.  Round-up Bask'ball IceHockey Diary
