The playoff picture is starting to come into focus on this happy note: Win and you are in as a division champion. That's the easy scenario for the Broncos and either the Cowboys or Giants. And while Baltimore already owns at least a wild-card spot, a victory for the Ravens will earn them the AFC North and a first-round bye. Denver is tied atop the AFC North with Oakland at 8-7, with the Broncos hosting the Chiefs on Sunday, and the Raiders at home for San Diego. Denver has the tiebreaker, but if it loses and the Raiders win, the Broncos can't get a wild card.

BALTIMORE - Because there's still some life in the 37-year-old arm of Charlie Batch, the Pittsburgh Steelers remain alive in the AFC North. Batch directed a 61-yard drive in the closing minutes and Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Steelers a 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Playing without injured Ben Roethlisberger for a third straight week, the Steelers turned to Batch for the second game in a row. The 15-year veteran went 25-for-36 for 276 yards, threw a touchdown and rallied the Steelers in a must-win game against their hated division rivals.

Jeff Reed kicked a 37-yard field goal with 1 minute, 36 seconds left last night to lift the Pittsburgh Steelers over the depleted Baltimore Ravens, 20-19. Pittsburgh (5-2) snapped a two-game home losing streak and stayed within a half-game of AFC North leader Cincinnati. The Ravens (2-5), two-touchdown underdogs, took a 19-17 lead after a botched play - a failed punt attempt - by the Steelers. Rookie Greg Warren's snap to Chris Gardocki deflected off blocking back Sean Morey and resulted in an incomplete pass by Gardocki.

The contentious realignment battle among NFL owners that had been forecast never developed yesterday as commissioner Paul Tagliabue predicted a relatively easy settlement next month. After three hours of debate, Tagliabue revealed seven scenarios - all of which have the Eagles remaining in the NFC East - from which the owners will choose when they meet May 22 in Chicago. Tagliabue, who said the May meeting probably would be extended to three days instead of two to put the issue to rest, said he had been listening to owners' and the television networks' pet rivalries for six months.

1. Give 'em a mettle: The Steelers were manhandled by the Eagles and Giants, so rallying to topple the Cowboys was especially sweet. So was winning despite only 71 yards rushing. They could still gain the conference's best record. 2. Back to Tony Nomo: Everytime Dallas is at a crossroads, the stud QB seems to gag. One TD, three INTs is NOT why Dallas signed him to a 6-year, $67 million deal. 3. Dis-Gusting display: OK, the Vikings are 8-5 and lead the NFC North. But they barely edged the winless Lions and lost QB Gus Frerotte, who hurt his back.

Some good came out of the XFL, after all. Just ask the Pittsburgh Steelers, who found their quarterback and the Associated Press NFL Comeback Player of the Year: Tommy Maddox. Maddox easily beat Miami running back Robert Edwards in voting announced yesterday. A flop as a first-round draft pick who became an insurance salesman before resurrecting his career in Arena Football and the one-season XFL, Maddox earned 24 votes from a panel of 48 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL. "I'm very excited about the opportunity Pittsburgh's given me, not only to be a part of their organization but to go out there and play," Maddox said.

The Indianapolis Colts want offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to stick around a little longer. They also understand he wants to become an NFL head coach. On Thursday, the Colts said Arians had been granted permission to speak with the Chicago Bears about their coaching vacancy. It's unclear when the interview will take place because Indy will face AFC North champion Baltimore in a wild-card-round game Sunday. Chicago might not be the only team interested in the former Temple coach.
