LE MARS — MMCRU rallied from a nine-point deficit after three quarters and outscored the Gehlen Catholic girls 17-2 in the final quarter for a 52-46 non-conference victory Monday night at the Jason Puetz Memorial gym.  The Lady Jays, making a bid for back-to-back wins for the first time under second-year head coach Brandon Schaecher, led by as many as 11 points in the second quarter before settling on a five-point lead at halftime.  Gehlen hit on only 1-of-11 shots in the final quarter and eventually surrendered the lead for good on a pair of Rae Tucker free throws with 3:38 to play.  Tucker finished with 14 points  while Emily Moser had 15 to lead the Royals in scoring.  Abby Dickman had a career-best 15 for Gehlen Catholic.  The Lady Jays go to the holiday break with a 1-and-7 record.

Pittsburgh 31, Baltimore 27
Kansas City 33, Denver 10

UNDATED – The Pittsburgh Steelers settled the playoff fate of three NFL teams with one short pass in the closing seconds. The Kansas City Chiefs also ended one postseason race and continued their bid to win a division title.

The Steelers are A-F-C North champions after Ben Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a four-yard touchdown with nine seconds left to give Pittsburgh (10-5) a 31-27 win over Baltimore (8-7). Brown appeared to be stopped short of the end zone until he extended his left arm and put the ball across the goal line. It came after Kyle Juszczy ran for a 10-yard T-D that put the Ravens back on top, 27-24 with 1:18 remaining.

The outcome officially put Kansas City in the playoffs for the third time in four years.  The Chiefs eliminated the Broncos from postseason consideration and stayed alive in their bid to win the A-F-C West.  Tyreek Hill ran 70 yards for a touchdown while Kansas City (11-4) was building a 21-7 lead in a 33-10 win over Denver. Hill had 95 yards rushing on six carries, four weeks after he scored touchdowns on the ground, through the air and on a return versus Denver (8-7). He led a Chiefs running attack that shredded the Broncos for 238 yards on 37 carries.  Alex Smith was 25 of 36 for 244 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the Chiefs stayed one game behind the division-leading Oakland Raiders.
