Jadeveon Clowney makes eye-popping plays

Jadeveon Clowney's tackles are not like other tackles. For the second straight week, Clowney made a highlight reel de-cleater of an opposing running back.

This time it came after Clowney knifed into the backfield unblocked, taking down Falcons running back Antone Smith. And Clowney topped himself on the ensuing play when he quickly beat Falcons left tackle Sam Baker for a sack of Matt Ryan. (Baker later left the game with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.)

The speed in which Clowney got around the edge was remarkable; Ryan never had a chance. We also didn't have a chance to see much of Clowney in the Houston Texans' 32-7 win over the Falcons because he left the game along with other defensive starters after two quick series. It hasn't taken long, however, for Clowney to get everyone excited about what he could do when the real games start.
