Carry On, Jadeveon Clowney

Last night, the Texans beat the Bengals in, what is fair to say, a less than offensively explosive game. But, often times when there is little offense - that means there are some spectacular defensive plays - which was true last night.

So it's no surprise one of the highlights from the game was when Jadeveon Clowneyscooped up a fumble from John Ross, after a great Kareem Jackson hit, and took it 49 yards in the other direction.

But then the internet decided to do some research - and as it turns out - this style of carrying the ball is nothing new to Clowney:

So I think everyone needs to chill out with the criticism. I mean, look at his hands! It looks like he's holding a jar of salsa, not an NFL football. And if you can carry a jar of salsa with one hand and the bag of chips with the other on your way to the couch to watch the game - then I say Clowney is allowed to carry the football anyway he pleases.

But when all is said and done, let's focus on the even more surprising fact about the play ... the fact that Clowney was tackled by Bengals QB Andy Dalton.
