Collins nears record

NFL notebook

The Associated Press

        GIANTS: New York quarterback Kerry Collins had his fifth consecutive 300-yard passing game and can tie the record of six shared by Steve Young and Kurt Warner next week against the Seattle Seahawks.

        LIONS: Marty Mornhinweg, who is 2-16 as Detroit's head coach, doesn't think he'll be fired.

        “Once you start thinking about job security, it's over,” Mornhinweg said, a day after the Lions lost 31-7 to Carolina. Detroit (0-2) has been outscored 80-28 this season.

        PACKERS: Green Bay offensive lineman Mark Tauscher will be out eight weeks with a knee injury and Ahman Green (strained quad), the NFC's leading rusher, could also miss Sunday's game at Detroit.

        SEAHAWKS: Pro Bowl tackle Walter Jones signed a one-year tender offer for $4.92 million, which represents the average salary of the top five players at that position.

        STEELERS: Pittsburgh planned to use its bye week to make a few minor tweaks. Instead, an early season collapse is forcing an overhaul of what was the NFL's best defense.

        Rich Gannon passed for 406 yards Sunday in Oakland's 30-17 victory that dropped the Steelers to 0-2.

        VIKINGS: Place-kicker Gary Anderson, the NFL's all-time leading scorer, was close to rejoining Minnesota a day after its stunning overtime loss to the Buffalo Bills in which Doug Brien missed two extra points. Anderson, 43, was offered a contract Monday.

        Brien was still with the team, though, and Vikings coach Mike Tice said it was likely Brien would remain on the roster to kick off if an agreement with Anderson was reached.
