CINCINNATI (AP) The unbeaten Bengals treated it like a playoff game.
And for three quarters, they played like it, too: An interception in the end zone, a fumble returned for a touchdown, a long touchdown pass wiped out by a penalty.
By that point, some fans were filing out of Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati trailed the two-time defending NFC champion Seahawks by 17 points. Nobody makes up that kind of ground on that kind of team.
