Pass offense finally explodes for Steelers

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- It took 10 games, but it finally happened for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They scored 30 points in a game for the first time this season. In fact, they hung 40 on the Tennessee Titans.

That might not seem like a big deal, but for the Steelers it ended a string of frustrating offensive performances. They entered the game 20th in the NFL in scoring, and the hope is the Thursday night outburst will be a harbinger of things to come.

"Hopefully, this is kind of the start," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said.
