On a Redskins road trip he has waited more than a year to make, Frank Wycheck expects to add some joy to an otherwise disappointing season Sunday at Veterans Stadium. In that ambition, Wycheck may be unique, since it hardly seems possible that any other NFL player would envision the Vet's cement-like artificial surface as a dream come true. But Wycheck is a native Philadelphian who prepped at Archbishop Ryan High School, and he has been looking forward to playing in his home town since the Redskins took him in the sixth round of the 1993 draft, and happily watched him scrap his way onto the roster.

Frank Wycheck believes image is everything. For that reason, he hopes with all his heart that his has not been tarnished. Wycheck, a second-year fullback for the Washington Redskins out of Archbishop Ryan High and Maryland, was suspended by the NFL on Nov. 29 after testing positive for anabolic steroids.

Kevin Dyson has been compared to the player drafted behind him - Randy Moss - ever since he joined the NFL. Maybe the criticism will stop now that he has his own highlight that will go down in NFL history. The Tennessee Titans receiver, drafted five slots ahead of Moss with the No. 16 pick overall in 1998, likely can top any play Moss has had with the Minnesota Vikings with his 75-yard kickoff return off a disputed cross-field lateral Saturday. Dyson's return took the Titans from a devastating loss to an improbable, 22-16 victory over the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game as he scored with just three seconds left.

Joe Bergstrom and Frank Wycheck became acquaintances at a rest stop between Philadelphia and Syracuse, N.Y., last summer. On Dec. 3, they became rivals for the Catholic League football championship at Villanova University. And next fall, they will become teammates and roommates at the University of Maryland.

When the Oakland Raiders beat the Tennessee Titans, 41-24, last night before a black-shrouded crowd of 62,544 at Oakland's Network Associates Coliseum to take the AFC championship, it was the culmination of another memorable Al Davis deal. Davis, the maverick owner of the Raiders, dealt his head coach, Jon Gruden, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two first-round draft choices, two second-round draft choices, and $8 million.

The Tennessee Titans savaged the Eagles for 17 points in the second half yesterday, taking the season-opener when Eddie George ran for the winning touchdown with about three minutes to play. George embellished his run with a two-point conversion and hardly looked like the running back who had hobbled through last season on an injured toe that limited him to 938 yards. Titans quarterback Steve McNair also came through big, completing 24 of 34 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns.
