PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher called it a playoff atmosphere. It was that and a little more at Three Rivers Stadium yesterday. It was a time for everyone associated with the Steelers to remember the championships while celebrating a 24-3 victory over the Washington Redskins. The Steelers played their final game at Three Rivers Stadium after 31 seasons and four Super Bowl championships. Many members of those famed teams of the 1970s were in attendance. "I know this wasn't an actual playoff game, but it was for us, and it had that atmosphere," Cowher said.

IRVING, Texas - For all those conspiracy theorists who believe the NFL is out to get Baltimore - especially after Sunday's controversial finish - tonight won't change your mind. As the Ravens make their final push toward the playoffs, they must overcome another roadblock laid down by the league. The Ravens (9-5) play the Dallas Cowboys (9-5) in the final game scheduled at Texas Stadium, a situation in which it is usually tough to pull out a victory. Since the beginning of the 1996 season, teams are 11-2 in the last regular-season games at their old stadiums before relocating to new ones.

PITTSBURGH - Washington Redskins interim coach Terry Robiskie knows his team is at a disadvantage. It is facing the memories of the greatness of the old Pittsburgh Steelers teams and the desperation of today's version in what will be the final game at Three Rivers Stadium. The Steelers still have an outside chance of making the playoffs, as do the Redskins, but won't go if they lose today. Just as important are the 60,000 fans expected to pack Three Rivers for the last time and the 40 former players that will roam the sideline expecting one last Steelers win. Pittsburgh won four Super Bowl titles during the 1970s and will have many key players from those teams in attendance.

Scouting report Ravens rushing vs. Steelers run defense STEELERS The Ravens' running game was inconsistent in the preseason, averaging 3.8 yards a carry and 104.5 a game. That included a couple of long quarterback scrambles, however. RB Priest Holmes looked good in his limited time. How the Ravens use Jamal Lewis is still in question. Cohesiveness could be an issue on the right side, where new guard Mike Flynn and tackle Harry Swayne played in only two games. The Steelers were tough against the run in five preseason games, giving up 3.1 an attempt and 83.8 a game.

Jeff Bagwell's homer was his first in 60 at-bats since Sept. 9 in St. Louis. Cardinals: St. Louis raised its major-league-leading home run total to 23.
