Two years ago the Cincinnati Bengals Ickey-shuffled their way to the Super Bowl before losing to the San Francisco 49ers, 20-16. The Bengals are seeking another invitation to the big dance this season. So far, they have waltzed to a 3-0 record, heading into tonight's game against the winless Seahawks (0-3) at Seattle's Kingdome. At first glance, the matchup doesn't look good for the host team, which enters the game as a three-point underdog. But look again. When you do, you might see that things might not be as they seem.

SEATTLE - Twelve minutes away from becoming relevant in a rebuilding season, the Seahawks reverted to their losing ways. Now any thoughts the Seahawks might have held about getting back into the fringes of the NFC playoff picture are likely gone after a fourth-quarter meltdown. "I don't know what we've got to do better," Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson said. "I feel like we had the game, all we had to do was finish it and we didn't finish it. " Washington QB Rex Grossman hit Anthony Armstrong on a 50-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter yesterday and the Redskins went on to stun the Seahawks, 23-17.

Former Eagles running back Ricky Watters was scheduled to arrive in Seattle last night and visit the Seahawks' training facility in Kirkland, Wash., today. His agent, Leigh Steinberg, accompanied Watters to Seattle. "We've got to feel him out," said Randy Mueller, Seahawks vice president of football operations. "He has to feel us out. He has to gather information, and so do we. " Mueller said interest in Watters intensified in the past 24 hours. Interest intensified because the Seahawks lost free-agent running back Robert Smith, who re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings yesterday for five years and $25 million.

There's a little bit of bad blood between the Seahawks and Redskins. Before the teams played Nov. 27 in a regular-season game at Seattle's CenturyLink Field, players had to be separated before the coin toss. After the game, Redskins players said it was because they had stomped on the Seahawks logo before leaving the field during warm-ups. On Thursday, fullback Michael Robinson - who was one of the Seahawks who had to be held back last year - indicated to the Seattle Times that it had more to do with something Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said before the coin toss, with a a child at midfield.

CHARLOTTE - Even when it's not about Cam, it's about Cam. That's the way charisma works. Dogged all year by allegations that their 15-1 record was a combination of a bad division, luck and gimmickry, showoff quarterback Cam Newton and his Panthers beat the red-hot Seahawks a second time this season and denied them a third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl with a 31-24, divisional playoff win. Showoff? Maybe that's not fair. Newton, in his fifth season, is the MVP favorite, the best player on a one-loss team.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Whew. That was close. The Seahawks are back at the Super Bowl. Things could not have worked out better for the NFL. The Seahawks are a fun, young team from the crunchy, techie Northwest already validated by last year's Super win. The Patriots are blue blood, original tea partiers, a dynastic compilation of talents forever sullied by accusations of cheating, again. It's REI vs. L.L. Bean; new-school owner Paul Allen vs. old-school monolith Robert Kraft; Microsoft vs. Mayonnaise.

THE EAGLES were piping in the recorded noise, practicing in their bubble this week, to prepare for Seattle - how strange was it that on the day of the continuation of Game 5 of the World Series, the Eagles were indoors and the Phils were outdoors? This is a long trip to a loud stadium, and the Seahawks, who have been banged up, probably aren't as bad as some of their losses would indicate. But Seattle has only beaten St. Louis and San Francisco. Unless A.J. Feeley or Mike McMahon unexpectedly takes the reins and starts throwing to Lofa Tatupu, this should be as comfortable a win as the Eagles have had since their opener.
