PITTSBURGH, Pa. Matt Adams Jersey . - There was no joyous celebration. The hooting and hollering was kept to the minimum.A return to the playoffs following a two-year absence after a 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday doesnt have the Pittsburgh Steelers getting ahead of themselves. Yes, theyre playing into January. But theres still plenty on the table with a week to go in the regular season.Next up? A shot at the AFC North title and the home game that comes along with it next Sunday against Cincinnati.Were going to treat that like a playoff game like weve had the last three weeks, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. We still have work to do.Its a job the surging Steelers (10-5) suddenly look capable of handling. Pittsburgh has won three straight and is 7-2 since getting crushed at Cleveland in early October. The NFLs top-ranked offence was slowed a bit by the Chiefs, but the defence sacked Alex Smith six times and held Kansas City out of the end zone.Six times the Chiefs (8-7) drove into Pittsburgh territory. They picked up four Cairo Santos field goals, a Jamaal Charles fumble and a fourth-down gamble in the second quarter that came up empty and gave the Steelers momentum for good.I think theres so many little things that happened, Smith said. Theyre not big things, but just little stuff that gets magnified.Its the kind of missed opportunities that have piled up for Kansas City over the last month. The Chiefs have dropped four of five and need to beat San Diego next week and get some help to make it back to the playoffs.We shoot ourselves in the foot sometime and dont know how to bounce back from it, linebacker Tamba Hali said.Time is running out for Kansas City. Not so much the Steelers, who have won their last six games in December.Some things we learned as the Chiefs remained winless in Pittsburgh since 1986:THE STEELERS ARE CLOSERS: Pittsburgh struggled early in the season finishing off opponents, letting lesser opponents stick around until late in games. Thats no longer the case. The Steelers have dominated at times in the second half of their current three-game run, including a pair of clock-chewing fourth-quarter drives each of the last two weeks. This time around it was a 12-play, 70-yard march that ended with Shaun Suishams 23-yard field goal that made it 20-9 with 4:04 remaining.ANDY REID IS GONNA GO FOR IT: The Chiefs trailed by four late in the second quarter when they faced fourth-and-inches at the Pittsburgh 12. Rather than a chip-shot field goal, Reid opted to stay aggressive. Charles was stuffed for a short loss. The Steelers ran out the clock and Kansas City never had a better chance to take the lead.Theres a certain mindset here that weve been working with here the whole season, Reid said. When youre put in that situation, you strap it on and go get the thing.HARRISONS RESURGENCE: Steelers linebacker James Harrison was credited with 1 1/2 of Pittsburghs six sacks and was a presence all afternoon. Not bad for a 36-year-old guy who has been bothered by knee problems in recent weeks. He hardly looked out of shape while spending an extensive amount of time in the Kansas City backfield.James is a monster, Steelers centre Maurkice Pouncey said.THE STREAK CONTINUES: Make it 18 regular season games and counting since a Kansas City wide receiver caught a touchdown pass. The Chiefs had a couple of shots. Dwayne Bowe saw a back-shoulder throw from Smith clang off his hands in the second quarter and Smith missed a wide-open Albert Wilson early in the third quarter.STAYING CLEAN: Pittsburghs improved offensive line kept Kansas Citys front seven from disrupting Roethlisberger too much. Justin Houston picked up his 18th sack of the year for the Chiefs but otherwise Roethlisberger had time to complete 18 of 25 passes for 220 yards and a 3-yard score to Antonio Brown.We have a quarterback, Steelers guard Ramon Foster said. When we give him time, we know weve got a chance.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Orlando Cepeda Jersey .Y. -- Phil Jackson lost out on his preferred coach, but hes working hard on keeping his star player. Bartolo Colon Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.bravesapparelsshop.com/customized-c-4/ . -- Mississippi State was crushed twice by Florida last season, once by 35 points and the other by 25. MADRID, Spain -- Atletico Madrid finally got the better of Spanish rival Barcelona on Wednesday as Kokes early goal guided his team to a 1-0 win and into the Champions League semifinals with a 2-1 aggregate victory. Adrian Lopez filled in for injured striker Diego Costa and created the fifth-minute goal after hitting the post, as the Atletico forward headed an ensuing cross on to Koke to fire home. The boisterous atmosphere at the Vicente Calderon Stadium unsettled Barcelona early on, and Atletico striker David Villa hit the woodwork twice within the opening 20 minutes. Barcelona dug in but produced few tangible scoring chances apart from a pair of first-half misses by Lionel Messi. Atletico, which leads Barcelona by one point in the league, reached the last four of Europes top competition for the first time since 1974. The teams had played four previous games this season which all ended in draws, but Atleticos breakthrough kept Barcelona from the semifinals for the first time in seven seasons. "We just have to keep working hard and stay calm because we still havent won anything," said Atletico coach Diego Simeone, whose team will face either crosstown rival Real Madrid, Chelsea, or Bayern Munich in a two-legged semifinal. Bayern beat Manchester United 3-1 on Wednesday to eliminate the English champions 4-2 overall. Adrian replaced Costa after Atleticos star striker failed to recover from a hamstring injury and the little-used forward immediately made a mark by rocketing a shot off the near post just before the opening goal. Adrian eventually headed the ball back across the area for Koke to score from close range to the delight of the capacity crowd. Atletico, feeding off the roar of its home supporters, had Barcelona consistently on the back foot early on and Villa found the post in the 11th-minute. Barcelona controlled possession but Atletico was dangerous on the counter as Villa fired on the run over goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto but off the crossbar -- the teaams third touch of the woodwork. Phil Niekro Jersey. Messi had Barcelonas lone scoring chances of the first half as he headed Dani Alves cross past the near post in the 13th before firing wide past the opposite post near the break after Neymars quick footwork created the chance inside the area. Barcelona took control from the restart as Atletico hung back, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois doing well to poke the ball away at Messis feet as he darted through the area and then recover in time to ensure the ball was deflected over goal in the ensuing scramble. "There was a big difference between one team and another early on. We couldnt string together four or five passes like we needed to," Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said. "If we had managed to equalize we might have been able to play the game we wanted." Adrian was taken off to a rousing ovation in the 61st and replaced by Diego Ribas, who scored Atleticos goal in the 1-1 draw in the first leg. Minutes later, Pinto was diving to save from the Brazilian on a counterattack before Atleticos penalty appeals were waved off when Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano tripped up Villa inside the area. Villa and Gabi Fernandez led another counter in the 70th, only for Pinto to kick out Gabis weak shot. Barcelona failed to muster up anything more and Pinto had to make a late save on Villa to keep it close, but the Catalans could not break through the hosts tight defence. "I thought we deserved the draw," Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez said, despite his team managing just five attempts on goal to Atleticos nine. "The game got away from us." After walking off the pitch to loud cheers, the Atletico players re-emerged again to celebrate a memorable victory with the nearly 50,000 fans. "The five games (between Atletico and Barcelona this season) all turned out nearly the same way, there werent any major differences except there was a clear winner this time," Martino said.
