Despite a tough, 30-21 loss to Buffalo, the Texans defense had some big plays from Jadeveon Clowney.
The second-year outside linebacker finished with three tackles, a single-game career-high two for a loss, one sack, and one quarterback hit on Tyrod Taylor.
Clowney sacked Taylor at the Buffalo 11-yard line for a loss of eight yards with 13:20 remaining in the game.
"Feels good but it would have been better if we got a win," Clowney said when asked about the Texans lone sack of the day.
On Thursday, defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said that as Clowney delved deeper into the system, his understanding of it also improved.
"That allows us to move people around," Crennel said. "He is making adjustments as far as that is concerned."
With the loss, the Texans fall to 6-6 and will next host the New England Patriots on Sunday night.
The Texans faced the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Week 13.
