12/21 19:11 CST Steelers, Packers win, move into playoffs Steelers, Packers win, move into playoffs By The Associated Press The Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers both qualified for the NFL playoffs with wins Sunday. Next week, they will play for division titles at home. Dallas clinched the NFC East with a rout of Indianapolis, ending any chance for Philadelphia to make the postseason. The Steelers (10-5) beat Kansas City 20-12 to secure at least a wild-card berth. They will win the AFC North by defeating Cincinnati next Sunday. The Bengals (9-4-1) host Denver (11-3) on Monday night. Green Bay topped Tampa Bay 20-3 and heads to Lambeau Field for next Sunday's showdown with Detroit for the NFC North crown. Both are 11-4 after the Lions won 20-14 at Chicago. With their wins in Week 16, the Falcons (6-9) and Panthers (6-8-1) set up a winner-take-all game for the NFC South next Sunday at Atlanta. Carolina beat Cleveland 17-13, and Atlanta defeated New Orleans 30-14. New England earned an AFC first-round bye with its 17-16 victory at the New York Jets. Still alive in the AFC are Baltimore (9-6), whose loss to Houston (8-7) also kept the Texans in contention; Kansas City (8-7); and San Diego (9-6), which won Saturday night at San Francisco. The Chargers will be in if they win at Kansas City next weekend. Buffalo (8-7) lost all chance of ending its NFL-high string of non-playoff appearances, now at 15, by falling at Oakland 26-24. The NFC is less muddled. Dallas (11-4) has a two-game lead over Philly (9-6) after routing AFC South champion Indianapolis 42-7. Arizona (11-3) already is in heading into the Sunday night game against Seattle. The Seahawks qualified when Dallas won and Philadelphia lost. The Cardinals will take the NFC West with a victory in prime time. That would also give Arizona home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs. And remember, the Super Bowl will be played in the Cardinals' stadium Feb. 1. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
