After going 17 quarters without a touchdown this season, the Steeler offense has nine TDs in its last seven periods. Two weeks ago rookie Eric Green became the first Pittsburgh tight end in the 22-year Chuck Noll Era to catch two TD passes in a game. On Sunday, in a 34—17 victory over the Broncos, Green became the first tight end under Noll to grab three in a game.
