Play to Watch: Jadeveon Clowney blows up the edge

Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft for good reason. He's a physical freak of nature. Clowney isn't a speed rusher, but he gets a lot done with his huge frame and power.

The Buffalo Bills might have trouble running wide on the Texans, as the Dallas Cowboys did on this play on Sunday. It was a strong-side power run off right tackle. Clowney (No. 90) took out the tight end blocking him and both pulling offensive linemen coming his way.


It became an easy chase-down by the Texans' linebackers for no gain. Elliott ran 20 times for 54 yards, a 2.7-yard average.

"He's explosive, strong, has all the intangibles," said Bills fullback Patrick DiMarco, like Clowney a South Carolina alum. "He’s a guy who can wreck a game. I think when he was young in his career, he had an on-off switch. It’s starting to fade away. He’s on go. We have to know where he is."
