Womens Ryan Griffin Jersey

Jadeveon Clowney pounced on a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown on Sunday against the Colts.On the next drive Womens Ryan Griffin Jersey , he shoved a lineman out of his path and tossed Andrew Luck to the ground for a 9-yard loss to force a punt.This is what the Houston Texans envisioned when they selected the defensive end with the first overall pick in the 2014 draft.After missing all but four games as a rookie because of a knee injury, Clowney has steadily improved each year and had the best season of his career in 2017 when he played all 16 games for the first time.He’s had some good games in the past, but Sunday was perhaps the finest performance of his career, a game where he made play after play to help the Texans to their first win of the season.Clowney finished with two sacks, four quarterback hits, four tackles for losses and that fumble recovery for a touchdown to earn AFC defensive player of the week honors for the first time in his career.The recognition meant a lot to Clowney after the struggles he’s had since being drafted out of South Carolina.“I’ve been through a lot from the day I walked in here, the first game ever I get hurt, battled back, got hurt again, battled back,” he said. “My back’s against the wall. Just keep battling, competing and showing up. That’s the way I live and that’s what I’m going to keep bringing every week, hopefully.”Coach Bill O’Brien said there’s a simple reason why Clowney has been playing so well this season.“I think he feels better,” O’Brien said. “I think with JD Womens Stephen Anderson Jersey , when he feels good, body-wise, he goes out there and he’s hard to handle.”Clowney missed most of training camp recovering from offseason arthroscopic knee surgery and sat out in Week 2 with a back injury. But he’s feeling great now and it showed on Sunday.He said now that he’s not dealing with any injuries it makes it easier for him to improve during the week at practice.“I’m going to practice every day, working on my craft and just working on stuff I wasn’t good at, trying to get better at it and enhancing stuff I was already good at,” he said.The 25-year-old is trying to use his hands better and come off the corner quicker and said being healthy makes trying new things much easier.After his big game, the question is if this is the Clowney the Texans can expect every week, starting on Sunday night when they host the Dallas Cowboys.“Yeah, I hope so,” he said. “That’s what I expect out of myself. Just go and put all my effort to this team and my teammates and go out there and compete at a high level.”Clowney has paired with three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt to power a fearsome defensive front.Injuries to both players over the past few years have made it rare for both Watt and Clowney to play together. Now that they are both back on the field they believe that they’ll only get better.“We know what our team is capable of when everybody is out there and healthy and flying around,” Watt said. “We’ve all had our issues in the past with health. If we can stay healthy and we can all put it together at the same time and play the game we know how to play, we have a chance to be pretty good, but it’s a matter of doing it, not talking about it.”Dallas coach Jason Garrett discussed the difficulty of dealing with both Watt and Clowney and how they might try double-teaming them or using tight ends or running backs to try and help slow them down.“Every time those guys go out there http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/authentic-senio-kelemete-jersey , they seem like they’re disrupting what the offense is trying to do,” Garrett said. “They’re both really good run defenders. They can pressure the passer and make those impact plays throughout a game. It’s obviously critical for the guys who are blocking them to be able to handle it and block them well.”But Clowney doesn’t care who they try to block him with, he has just one thought.“Go run through him, get to the quarterback, no matter who I’m going against,” he said. “Just try to run through this guy and get to that quarterback as quickly as possible.”He isn’t sure if Sunday was his best game as a Texan, but has a plan for trying to replicate that success.“I’m just trying to get better week by week, play by play and just keep competing at a high level,” he said. HOUSTON (AP) — After coming up just short in their first two games, the New York Giants figured out a way to finish a game on Sunday against the Houston Texans and get their first win.“We’ve become an almost team,” quarterback Eli Manning said. “We’ve been close on a few things and (Sunday) we put it together.”Manning threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Saquon Barkley added a score as the Giants (1-2) got a 27-22 victory over the struggling Houston Texans.New York had lost its first two games by 12 points combined before building a 20-6 lead by halftime and adding a touchdown late on Sunday to outlast the winless Texans.“This was just a different ride,” Barkley said. “Coach challenged us to come out with a great start and that’s something we really focused on. Obviously, we’ve got to play a little better in the second half. But it’s the NFL, and they’re not just going to let you run up the score on them.”The Giants got another good game from Barkley Trevor Daniel Jersey , who was the second overall pick in this year’s draft. The Texans led 3-0 after a 23-yard field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn on their first drive. The Giants took their first lead this season when Barkley shed multiple tackles on a 15-yard run that made it 7-3.Barkley has 46 carries for 216 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches for 137 yards this season. His presence has given the Giants another explosive playmaker to pair with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.The Giants were certainly happy to get in the win column on Sunday, but know they have a lot of work to do if they hope to have a successful season.“We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves because it’s just one game,” Beckham said. “Now we have to start tacking it on, build off this and keep improving.”Some things to know about New York’s win over Houston.RUNNING GAME WOESAfter leading the NFL in yards rushing through the first three games, the Texans couldn’t get anything going on the ground. They finished with 59 yards rushing, and Lamar Miller managed just 10 yards on as many carries.“They loaded up the box,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “They did a good job. We tried a bunch of different schemes — basically abandoned it in the second half … tried to do other things. Just never could get it going.”MISUNDERSTANDING?Giants receiver Sterling Shepard received a taunting penalty in the second quarter after jawing with Houston cornerback Aaron Colvin. But Shepard insists it wasn’t malicious and that he and Colvin are friends and were simply messing with each other.“That’s one of my boys from college,” Shepard said. “We go way back. He was at my wedding, I was at his wedding. We had been talking a little mess before the game … we were just going back and forth. It was all in love, but the officials don’t know that.”The two played in college together at Oklahoma.STRONG CONNECTIONHouston receiver Will Fuller had five receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. He’s played in six career games with Watson and has nine touchdowns in those games. He’s had at least one TD grab in each game he’s played with Watson.He had 113 yards and a score last week to make him the first Texan to have consecutive 100-yard receiving games since he did it in the first two weeks of the 2016 season.INJURY UPDATENew York tight end Evan Engram (knee) left in the second quarter. … Giants CB Antonio Hamilton injured his groin in the first quarter and didn’t return. … Houston WR Bruce Ellington injured his hamstring in the first quarter and didn’t return. … Texans G Senio Kelemete (knee) left in the second quarter.
