Given the relentless hype, we have come to expect game coverage of each Super Bowl to be better than the last. Fox did better Sunday in covering the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos than CBS did last year with the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, but that's not saying much. CBS set the bar about as low as you can go last year when the lights went out in New Orleans. The play-by-play from Joe Buck was below average, while the production values and analysis by Troy Aikman were average at best.

Troy Aikman has spent a lifetime in the crosshairs of finger-pointers. At Oklahoma, UCLA and with the Cowboys, the quarterback always seemed to be in people's sights. In the wake of three Super Bowl championships and induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the targeting has continued. But now, a new generation of fingers, who knew not Aikman the quarterback, are beginning to take aim. Friends of Aikman's elementary school-aged daughters, Jordan and Ally, recognize him not as the passer but rather as a broadcaster and television pitchman.

IRVING, Texas -- Troy Aikman stood in front of the gathered media Monday afternoon, lobbing answers as easily as he does those 10-yarders over the middle to tight end Jay Novacek.After all, he has been in the league four years now, and he has learned more than just the intricacies of offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system, more than all the ins and outs for becoming a two-time Pro Bowl quarterback and 1992's third-rated NFC quarterback.Certainly a guy who figures how to throw for 3,445 yards, 23 touchdowns and a 63.8 percent completion rate in 16 games can figure what he's about to face.

Austin, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys' first meeting of the 1993 football season was only five minutes old when coach Jimmy Johnson walked in.There were handshakes, some hugs and quite a few laughs. And then Johnson cleared his throat.Time for business."Gentleman, you were good last year, and you won a Super Bowl," Johnson said. "But if you win two in a row, we will be considered great. We want to be a great football team."The Cowboys have a chance to become the fifth franchise to win consecutive Super Bowls.

Outlook: The Titans can clinch AFC Central, first-round bye and home-field advantage with win. Dallas' 31st-ranked rushing defense will have its hands full trying to stop Eddie George. The Titans' aggressive defense should cause rookie QB Anthony Wright plenty of problems. Notable: Dallas RB Emmitt Smith needs 124 yards rushing to pass Barry Sanders (15,269)

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The last time Troy Aikman suffered a concussion at Sun Devil Stadium, it came in the final quarter. Dallas lost.Yesterday, Aikman suffered a concussion on the game's opening drive. The Cowboys won. That's the difference between the 1-15 Cowboys of 1989, who couldn't win with Aikman, and the team of 1994, which can win without him. Dallas overcame Aikman's absence with a strong finish from Rodney Peete to rally for a 28-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals."We gave up the biggest turnover in the game in Troy Aikman," said coach Barry Switzer.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Tom Brady was asked last week whether he saw any similarities between himself and his counterpart in today's Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles' Donovan McNabb. His instinctive reaction: He laughed. Not rudely or insultingly - humble by nature, the New England Patriots' two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player barely acknowledges any superiority over the rest at his position. But he couldn't miss the stylistic differences between himself and McNabb, either. "There are so many things I wish I could do that I'll never be able to do," he said.

It's a list of thievery that makes quarterbacks cringe. Ravens safety Rod Woodson began his torment by returning an interception of Cincinnati's Boomer Esiason for a touchdown in 1987 and has continued to cause quarterbacks to double clutch ever since, leading all active players with 57 interceptions. The 14-year veteran has victimized the NFL's best quarterbacks, namely 15 Pro Bowl performers, seven Super Bowl starters, four NFL Most Valuable Players and three Heisman Trophy winners.

Buffalo (4-4) at New England (2-6) Time: 1 p.m. Line: Patriots by 2 1/2 . Vs. spread: Bills 3-5; Patriots 4-4. Series: Patriots lead 40-38-1. Last meeting: Bills won, 13-10, in OT on Dec. 26, 1999, at New England. Outlook: QB Doug Flutie has once again provided a boost for the Buffalo offense. His ability to scramble and create first-down runs and big-play throws off those scrambles have rejuvenated the Bills and made them harder to defend. New England will try to keep Flutie boxed in, but look for him to break free just enough.

Arizona Cardinals Last season: 6-10, fourth. Coach: Vince Tobin (26-38), fifth season with Cardinals. Strength of schedule: tie for 28th. Starting quarterback: Jake Plummer (15-21). Best move: By selecting RB Thomas Jones of Virginia in the first round, the Cardinals addressed one of their more glaring needs. Jones should jump-start a ground game that ranked 29th in 1999. Missing piece: There still is no bona fide tight end on the roster, which will not help Plummer. Inexplicably, there was no serious interest in Ben Coates.

Jimmy Johnson yesterday called his departure from the Dallas Cowboys "a little transition." But to many across the NFL, it represented perhaps the end to a dynasty.Bobby Beathard, the San Diego Chargers general manager, said: "It's tough when you get it going like that to lose a guy like Johnson. I know how players react to things."And the Cowboys players don't appear to be happy about the news.Wide receiver Michael Irvin, who played for Johnson in college, stormed through the team's training facility yesterday and later said, "Of course, I'm upset about it."

ATLANTA -- The Dallas Cowboys traveled east to beat a team from the West and, thus, clinched the NFC East last night, making their first journey to the Georgia Dome a memorable one.Dallas broke open a close game in the opening minutes of the second half, pouncing on a pair of fumbles and swiftly converting them into touchdowns in a 41-17 rout of the Atlanta Falcons.The victory clinched the East for the Cowboys (12-3) and earned them a week off following Sunday's game with Chicago. The Cowboys will face Minnesota in the first playoff game if the Vikings, champions of the Central Division, win their wild-card game.

Donovan McNabb is the quarterback who came to dinner. Selected with the second pick in last year's draft and awarded a $54 million contract by the Philadelphia Eagles, McNabb spent more than two months after his rookie season enjoying the hospitality of wide receiver Charles Johnson and his wife in Phoenix. McNabb stayed in a spare bedroom in the Johnson home, but it wasn't just a social visit. Johnson suggested that McNabb spend part of the off-season working out with him so they could get on the same page this year.
