Wayne Chrebet upstaged Keyshawn Johnson, catching an 18-yard touchdown pass from running back Curtis Martin with 52 seconds left to give the New York Jets a 21-17 victory at Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Johnson, a frequent critic of Chrebet during Johnson's days with the Jets and in his book ''Just Give Me the Damn Ball,'' disrespected Chrebet again leading to the game matching 3-0 teams.
But Johnson caught only one pass for 1 yard, and for the third time in four games, the Jets came back to win after trailing in the fourth quarter, scoring two TDs in the final two minutes.
Victor Green recovered Mike Alstott's fumble at the Tampa Bay 24 to set up the winning score, two plays after Vinny Testaverde's 6-yard TD pass to Martin and a 2-point conversion pass made it 17-14.
Redskins 16, Giants 6
Brad Johnson, under fire with Washington off to a slow start, passed for 289 yards and two touchdowns as the Redskins (2-2) finally showed some Super Bowl form.
Johnson, who was 14-of-20, hit Irving Fryar with a 23-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and threw a 21-yarder to Andre Reed early in the third. Johnson also had a 48-yard strike to Albert Connell, who had four catches for 122 yards, to set up a 25-yard field goal by Michael Husted.
Rams 41, Falcons 20
Kurt Warner threw four touchdown passes, including 80- and 85-yarders to Torry Holt.

Chiefs 23, Broncos 22
Elvis Grbac rallied Kansas City from a 12-point third-quarter deficit with a pair of TD throws, including a 22-yarder to Derrick Alexander with 2:21 left.
Grbac's 15-yard toss to Tony Gonzalez midway through the third quarter cut the deficit to 19-14.
Titans 23, Steelers 20
Steve McNair, who only took a few snaps all week and didn't start because of a bruised sternum, replaced injured backup Neil O'Donnell, and threw an 18-yard TD pass with 1:25 left.
McNair came in with 2:35 left after O'Donnell, making his first start at Three Rivers Stadium since leaving Pittsburgh, had his lower lip split open on a sack and wobbled to the sideline.

Jerry Rice caught two touchdown passes as San Francisco won its first game of the season and only its second in 16 games.
