Clowney Makes Early Impact For Texans

Jadeveon Clowney is already showing how dominant he can be in the NFL. The top overall pick in the draft made big hits behind the line on consecutive plays and Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to DeVier Posey in the Texans' 32-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night. Houston selected Clowney out of South Carolina to form a powerful 1-2 pass-rushing attack with J.J. Watt. Watt sat out Saturday's game and Clowney seized the defensive spotlight on Atlanta's second series. He burst through the line untouched and crashed into Antone Smith almost the second the running back took a handoff from Matt Ryan. On the next snap, Clowney whipped around left tackle Sam Baker and smacked down Ryan for a 7-yard loss. "It's work," Clowney said. "You just got to work and get after the guys, go hard and hope for something good. You just have to do your job." Read More »

Watkins Leaves Game With Injured Ribs

Former Clemson standout and current Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins left early in the first quarter with a rib contusion and did not return to an exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday night. It's uncertain whether the fourth overall pick in the draft will be available when the Bills host Tampa Bay next weekend. "They're going to run tests and everything and we'll see how he is," Buffalo coach Doug Marrone said. Watkins walked off the field clutching his side during Buffalo's first drive after Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier jumped over him while attempting to break up a pass attempt. Read More »

With Saturday’s 4-yard touchdown catch from Ryan Nassib with 55 seconds left in the game, Washington has caught the game-winning touchdown in all three of the Giants’ preseason games. He has also caught a 73-yarder against Buffalo and a 3-yarder against Pittsburgh. Read More »

Clemson Ready To Start Preparing For Georgia

Head coach Dabo Swinney was more upbeat after Saturday’s scrimmage than he was after the one Wednesday. It was the final stadium scrimmage of the preseason for the Tigers as they prepare to meet the 12th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs on August 30, just two weeks from today. “We had a little of everything today,” Swinney said. “We had some good and had some bad on both sides of the ball. Overall, I thought the defense set the tempo and had a good day. There were a few missed plays on competitive situations where the receivers made the play. In general, Swinney said it has been a good camp, but the team and coaches are now ready to concentrate on someone else. “We are tired of practicing against each other. The team is ready to start preparation for Georgia. They are ready to look at some film of someone else instead of reviewing practice tape.” Read More »
