The formation: Pro right, one-back set.The action: At the snap, the offensive linemen lock into their PTC pass sets. Fullback Brian Milne (44) fakes as if he's going to pass block, then flares into the left flat. Halfback Corey Dillon (28) also pass blocks, but if there is no oncoming pass rusher, he darts into the right flat. Receiver Carl Pickens (81), splits left, runs a hitch-and-go route, the type on which he scored the last time the Bengals played the Ravens. Tight end Tony McGee (82)

Though the Ravens usually handled Corey Dillon, they appear to like their chances even more against the Cincinnati Bengals' new featured back, Rudi Johnson. Cincinnati decided to go with Johnson this offseason, trading the disgruntled Dillon to the New England Patriots. Last season, the Ravens held Johnson to 15 yards on seven carries. "They have Rudi Johnson, who has made a couple of good plays here or there, but I don't know if I would put him up there with Corey Dillon just yet," Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis said.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The New England Patriots placed a new face on the list of NFL dynasties, searing their name into NFL history with determination and not domination. In their signature workmanlike style - a balanced offense and an opportunistic defense - the Patriots outlasted the Philadelphia Eagles for a momentous 24-21 Super Bowl triumph last night at Alltel Stadium. Overcoming an effort that was sometimes sloppy and stagnant, the Patriots became only the second team to capture three Super Bowl titles in four years, a run that established them as the first dominant franchise of the 21st century and the salary cap era. "We've never really self-proclaimed ourselves anything," said quarterback Tom Brady, who is 9-0 in the playoffs.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - In any other year and on any other franchise, the imminent departure of two of the architects of a multiple Super Bowl winner would be cause for dread. In fact, it is mildly worrisome to the Patriots' faithful that both coordinators, Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel, are expected to move on to bigger and better things after Sunday's game against the Eagles. Much more worrisome to the faithful is that at some point very soon, someone will throw a bucket of icy water on them, awaken them from the dream, and open their eyes on a world where the Patriots are, as one notable New England chronicler calls them, "the black sheep franchise of Boston."

The running back once known as "Villain Dillon" is still causing trouble. Only this time, Corey Dillon is disrupting the other team, not his own. After seven tumultuous seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dillon has found a new home and a new attitude with the New England Patriots, who face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's AFC championship game. His punishing running style has earned the respect of the offense, the admiration of the defense and the acceptance of Patriots fans. In gaining 144 yards in his playoff debut Sunday, Dillon was rewarded with chants of "Corey, Corey, Corey."

PHILADELPHIA - The closets will be creaking now. Skeletons of playoffs past are about to materialize in the countdown to the Super Bowl, and that means a nervous week in Pittsburgh for Steelers coach Bill Cowher and in Philadelphia for Eagles coach Andy Reid. The NFL's final four has lots of tradition, a heavy dose of defense and a delicious matchup of mobile quarterbacks. What it also brings is the pressure of past failures, a theme that is certain to haunt championship week. Reid enters his third straight NFC championship game at home with unqualified expectations.

FOXBORO, Mass - The Ravens' defense had faced him before, had more success than not, and even made him want to stay on the sideline a few years ago. But yesterday, the defense had no answer for New England Patriots running back Corey Dillon, who rushed for 123 yards on 30 carries in his team's 24-3 win at a rain-soaked Gillette Stadium. The Ravens' defense, which prides itself in not allowing 100-yard rushers, gave up its third in 11 games this season. "Corey Dillon has always been a good back," defensive end Marques Douglas said.

RAVENS -- Ravens rushing vs. Bengals run defense The Ravens switched to rookie RB Jamal Lewis this week after he broke four plays of 10 or more yards in Miami. He should move the pile on the goal line and help in the red zone. Priest Holmes can still deliver some big plays as the changeup back. The Bengals rank ninth against the run, giving up 94.5 yards a game and 3.0 a carry, with Tom Barndt and Oliver Gibson at the tackles. They've also got undrafted rookie Armegis Spearman at MLB in place of injured Brian Simmons.

One minute you're yelling "Duce!" Next minute you're shouting "D'OH!" (Or worse). So it goes for the tortured owners of Pittsburgh's Duce Staley, a repeat victim of TD theft. That's right, TD theft. It's an increasingly common offense in today's increasingly specialized NFL, and here's now it works: One guy does a lot of work (like Staley) running the ball down the field. Then another guy comes in, runs for a short touchdown and gets to do a little dance or spin the ball or whatever else he wants (unless it's something choreographed, or involves a cell phone, or a Sharpie; those are No-Nos)
