    T.J. Watt felt the familiar and still indescribable jolt the moment he emerged from the tunnel.

    Two months spent standing on the sideline while his torn left pectoral muscle healed deprived the Pittsburgh star linebacker of the lifeblood that sustains him and the Steelers of a player that can change the arcs of games, if not entire seasons.

    No wonder Watt took a second on Sunday to bask in a moment that seemed far away during his lengthy rehab, one that not coincidentally was in lockstep with his team's worst start in eight years.

    ''You wish you could freeze time for just one second,'' Watt said.

    That may be beyond Watt's control. Something far more attainable is the formula the Steelers rediscovered against New Orleans, one they hope could serve as the foundation of a second-half push.

    Kenny Pickett and George Pickens ran for 1-yard touchdowns and Pittsburgh's rejuvenated defense - the one with Watt's No. 90 once again a blur coming off the edge - shut down the Saints late in a 20-10 victory that provided fuel to Watt's belief there is still time for the Steelers to make something out of 2022.
