WATCH: Jadeveon Clowney sniffs out screen for INT

Playing in his first NFL playoff game, Jadeveon Clowney did not take long to make an impact for the Houston Texans. The Oakland Raiders tried to catch Houston off guard with a screen pass on a third-and-long.

Clowney had other ideas. He sniffed the Connor Cook screen pass out for an interception deep in Oakland territory.

One play later, Lamar Miller was in the end zone, giving the Texans a 10-0 lead.

It’s still early in the game, but the Raiders’ offense has looked abysmal in the early going. If Oakland doesn’t establish an offensive rhythm shortly, it will have a hard time competing in this game.
