Breakfast: Easy as 1-2-3-4 for Jadeveon Clowney


It was a 1-2-3-4 type of Sunday for Jadeveon Clowney.

One sack.

Two tackles for loss.

Three quarterback hits.

Four total tackles.

The outside linebacker tormented Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears offensive linemen in Sunday's 23-14 victory at NRG Stadium. For team founder, chairman and CEO Bob McNair, Clowney's performance wasn't a surprise.

"He's doing what we thought he would do when he's healthy," McNair said. "He is healthy now, and you see the way he played. He's having fun, he's enjoying it. His teammates are pleased to have him out there on the field with them. He's going to be fun to watch."

Clowney missed 12 games in his rookie season of 2014 with a knee injury. He played 13 games last year and is finally healthy.

"It's great," Clowney said. "They are counting on me, my team is counting on me to be out there. I go out there and compete for them. We had a good time out there and we got the win."

Clowney and the defense didn't allow a point in the second half, and held the Bears to just 31 percent on third down. Five of Chicago's seven second half drives ended in punts. The other two ended in an interception or on downs.
