    Something missing until the infamous ot fourth down. Team is too invested momentarily in pass rush not to get them

    Obviously, clowney, watt, and merciless have to get more pressure. Hopefully last night was the start

    I notice the DLine gets penetration for the most part. The miss tackles are a real issue, they always overrun the play especially Clowney and JJ. But slowing down is a skill itself, JJ has it. Hopefully the coaches can emphasize that in practice. Clowney has so many all most sacks in his Texans career so far, dude is too fast for his own good. It seems like Clowney is ready to have a breakout year, his technique and quickness is a sight to behold. **** crazy!

    One of those sacks that was missed had me thinking about the weight issue. I don’t know if they (JJ or JD) tried to arm tackle or just straight missed.

    Defense was very impressive - hopefully a sign of things to come!

    Looks like JJ and Clowney are both close to 100%
