Don't worry about Ickey Woods this flu season ... 'cause he's running about 98 Degrees!
Check out this footage of the Bengals legend hanging out with Nick Lachey at LAX ... bro-ing out over Cincinnati's impressive 10-3 record this season.
Both guys are stoked about Cinci's chances at a Super Bowl run -- even with an injured Andy Dalton -- with Woods saying the red head has a real shot to be one of the NFL's all time greats!
BTW, Nick grew up in Cinci and happens to be a hardcore Bengals fan -- so we had to ask Ickey where Lachey ranked on the all time Bengals celebrity fan power list.
His competition -- George Clooney, Woody Harrelson, Carmen Electra ... and (wait for it) Barney Stinson.
