GAMES CALLED OFF

The NFL has decided to call off this weekend's games in the aftermath of Tuesday's terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.<P>The league has not determined whether the games will be canceled or postponed.<P>

There was no word as to when a determination on what will happen with this week's games, including the Dolphins' home battle against the Bufalo Bills, will be made.

One possibility is simply canceling the game, leaving teams with a 15-game schedule. Under that scenario, the San Diego Chargers would wind up with 16 games because they were scheduled for a bye this weekend.

The other possibility is making up the games on the weekend of Jan. 6-7 and eliminating the wild-card round of the playoffs. Under that scenario, the number of wild cards in each conference would be reduced from three teams to one team.

Dolphins players interviewed on Wednesday were divided on whether Sunday's game should be played. Offensive linemen Tim Ruddy, Mark Dixon and Todd Wade were among those who felt the games should go on, while defensive linemen Daryl Gardener and Jason Taylor were among those who felt playing would not be appropriate.
