Channel 7, 6 p.m. The Cowboys are down to their last gasp, and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of arrogant guys. It's up to Coach Barry Switzer to rally an offense ranked No. 24 in the NFL; did someone yell, "punt"? Philadelphia has the No. 1 offense and a reminder of Switzer's proclamation last year that the Cowboys had kicked the Eagles' butt in the playoffs. --Say what: Emmitt Smith.

Steve Broussard got the unbeaten Seattle Seahawks off to a perfect start. Then the Seahawks kept their record perfect against the winless Washington Redskins. Broussard ran back the game's opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown and the Seahawks ran their record to 3-0--their first since 1986--with a 24-14 victory over the Redskins on Sunday. "It was blocked perfectly," Broussard said. "I ran through a hole as big as a truck."

Seattle Seahawk fans have fallen in love with Ricky Watters. They also love the Seahawk defense. Willie Williams and Shawn Springs returned interceptions for touchdowns and Watters had his first 100-yard rushing game for the Seahawks in a 33-14 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. In opening a season 2-0 for the first time since 1994, the Seahawks have outscored their first two opponents 71-14.

That nine Dallas Cowboys made the Pro Bowl is hardly a surprise. But who was left out is. Four Cowboys will start, including cornerback Deion Sanders, but Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and Leon Lett won't be headed to Honolulu for the Feb. 2 game. The biggest stunner is not seeing Smith on the NFC roster for the first time in his seven-year career. Smith was beaten out by starters Barry Sanders of Detroit, Terry Allen of Washington and reserve Ricky Watters of Philadelphia.

Ricky Watters had two short touchdown runs and for the second time in five weeks Randall Cunningham took over in the second half for an injured Rodney Peete as the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants, 28-19. "They do the same things regardless of who is at quarterback," Giant Coach Dan Reeves said. Peete threw two touchdown passes, both to Fred Barnett, in the first half and did not return after halftime because of a sore hip.
