PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A two-year playoff absence is barely a hiccup in most NFL cities. In Pittsburgh, its a drought that forced one of the leagues most successful franchises to rebuild itself on the fly.Consider the project right on schedule.Ben Roethlisberger passed for 220 yards and a touchdown, LeVeon Bell added a score and the Steelers locked up a post-season berth with a methodical 20-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.Pittsburgh (10-5) faces Cincinnati next week for the AFC North title. Either way, the Steelers will be playing January football for the first time since Tim Tebow and Denver stunned the defending AFC champions in the wild card round three years ago.Now, Roethlisberger, Bell and Antonio Brown lead one of the NFLs best offences, and the defence is starting to show some snarl for the only franchise with six Lombardi Trophies.Alex Smith passed for a season-high 311 yards but was sacked six times as the fading Chiefs (8-7) lost for the fourth time in their last five games. Kansas City had little trouble moving the ball but couldnt seem to get the one big play that mattered.Instead, the big plays — and most of the smaller ones — went to the Steelers. A roster thats undergone a youth movement since a Super Bowl appearance four years ago is growing up quickly, though with a few familiar faces leading the way.The Steelers win also eliminated the Dolphins from the playoffs. The Chiefs need to beat San Diego next Sunday and receive plenty of help to make it back to the playoffs for a second straight year under coach Andy Reid.Roethlisberger wasnt as dynamic as hes been at times this season but led a pair of long touchdown drives. The second ended with a 3-yard strike to Brown that gave Pittsburgh a 17-6 lead late in the third quarter. Roethlisberger briefly went to the locker room with a right knee injury but returned after a Kansas City field goal to guide a 12-play, 70-yard march that ended with Shaun Suishams 23-yard kick with 4:04 remaining to all but clinch it.The teams spent the first half trading methodical drives, but Kansas City kept getting bogged down near the end zone, a rarity for a team that came in second in the league in red zone touchdown percentage. Three times the Chiefs drove inside the Pittsburgh 20. Three times they failed to cross the goal line.The first drive ended with Cairo Santos 23-yard field goal.The second included a flip from holder Dustin Colquitt to tight end Travis Kelce on fourth-and-4 at the Pittsburgh 11. Kelce converted it into a first down, but three additional downs produced a single yard and another kick from Santos.Pittsburgh responded to go in front 10-6 when Bell ended a crisp 80-yard drive with a 1-yard dive over right tackle. Smith deftly guided the Chiefs back downfield when a rare moment of aggression by Reid wound up costing Kansas City a chip-shot field goal.Facing fourth-and-inches at the Pittsburgh 12 with 27 seconds left in the half and no timeouts, Reid sent the offence back onto the field. Charles was drilled by Lawrence Timmons behind the line of scrimmage, and when Will Allen piled on, the Steelers had the ball and the momentum with a post-season berth just 30 minutes away.___Online: and Matt Slauson Jersey .

Crisp, efficient and potent. After three quarters of bumbling around in Indianapolis, the second-year quarterback led New York to two touchdowns in the final four minutes Saturday night. The second came on a 4-yard TD pass to Corey Washington with 55 seconds left —to give the Giants an improbable 27-26 victory against the Indianapolis Colts. "It was definitely a strange game in that way, but it shows that we have some perseverance," Nassib said. "Well play until the games over." For three quarters, the Giants stumbled around. Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning finished 1 of 7 for 6 yards and was fortunate to have an interception wiped out by a Colts penalty. Backup Curtis Painter, the one-time Indy starter, completed one pass during a first half that the Giants managed only 48 yards and wound up 6 of 15 for 64 yards and one TD. The defence allowed 177 yards in the first two quarters, struggling to force punts, and kickoff returner Quintin Demps even lost a fumble. "Whatever words you want to use to describe it, there was no production," coach Tom Coughlin said when asked about the offence. "Theres nothing to look at from a production standpoint and thats disappointing." Things looked so bleak that when Painter finally got the Giants (3-0) on the scoreboard with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter, on a 3-yard TD pass to Kellen Davis, the smattering of fans left at Lucas Oil Stadium thought it was more of a gimme than the start of a comeback. Sixteen seconds later, though, Spencer Adkins recovered a fumble in the Colts end zone to make it 26-14, and then Nassib started working his late-game magic. He led the Giants on a 92-yard drive, capped by Michael Coxs 2-yard TD run, and then found Washington in the back corner of the end zone. Washington has caught a TD pass in each of the Giants three preseason games, including the winning scores each of the past two weeks. "Hes proven that hes made those big plays before and he did it once again," Nassib said of Washington. The late rally, against Indys backups, ruined what had been a big night for Hakeem Nicks, who signed with Indianapoolis (0-2) as a free agent in March after helping the Giants win the Super Bowl in their last trip to Lucas Oil Stadium in February 2012.dddddddddddd. He showed his old team that he could still play. Nicks caught five passes for 53 yards, accounting for most of Andrew Lucks production on a night Reggie Wayne was again held out. Luck wound up 12 of 18 for 89 yards with one TD. All week Nicks held his emotions in check, telling reporters all the right things. On Saturday night, he looked as if he had all the right moves, too, with the exception of a couple of goodbye waves to his ex-teammates as he headed out of bounds. The second time he did it, the refs flagged him for unsportsmanlike conduct wiping out a 36-yard gain and getting a brief lecture from coach Chuck Pagano. "He knew what he did, what that discussion was going to be like," Pagano said. The penalty didnt stop Nicks or the Colts. On the next play, he caught an 8-yard pass for a first down, and opened the second quarter with a 17-yard catch that eventually led to Adam Vinatieris second field goal of the game, a 42-yarder that made it 13-0. Matt Hasselbeck replaced Luck on the next series and promptly threw a 14-yard TD pass to DaRick Rogers to make it 20-0 at halftime, and two field goals from Cody Parkey made it 26-0 early in the fourth — a lead that looked safe. Painters TD pass and Adkins fumble recovery gave the Giants a glimmer of hope and Nassib made it happen by overcoming two offensive penalties and converting two fourth-down chances by hooking up with Washington for the winner. "We challenged them at halftime," Coughlin said. "I wanted us to come out in the second half and see who loved football. It was primarily the end of the second group and then the third group that did it." Notes: Four New York players left the game with injuries: Cornerback Prince Amukamara (groin), offensive tackle Charles Brown (shoulder), defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (elbow) and safety Cooper Taylor (toe). Coughlin did not have a postgame update. ... Manning said he is comfortable in the offence but that the Giants are still trying to understand all the nuances. ... Pagano said the Colts did not sustain any significant injuries.
