Desmond Howard, fighting for a spot with the Packers, returned a punt 77 yards for a touchdown to lift them to a 24-17 exhibition victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Green Bay.

Howard took Shayne Edge's punt at his 23 and raced down the right sideline for a 21-14 lead with 42 seconds to play in the third quarter.
