During the Oilers seven year playoff run ('87-'93), Warren Moon threw 156 TD passes and the Oilers were in the top ten in NFL scoring in every season. They were second in the league in scoring two of those years ('88 and '90), and fourth in scoring two times ('91 and '93).
If the point is # of TD passes, by comparison, Joe Montana in his most prolific seven year stretch threw only 8 more TD passes than Moon did in that Oilers seven.
