Former South Carolina football star Jadeveon Clowney was all over the field doing everything for the Houston Texans on Sunday, helping to lead his team to a crucial divisional win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road.

Clowney finished the game with seven tackles, all solo, two sacks, four QB hits and a fumble recovery — tying his career high in all categories.

According to data from Pro Football Reference dating back to 1999, only one other NFL player has ever put up such a stat line — Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

On social media, fans were quick to praise the former top draft pick for his effort, especially as he was going against a player taken two picks after him in 2014 and with whom he has a history of trash talk, Blake Bortles.

 



With the Texans’ 20-6 win, they now have sole possession of first place in the AFC South standings.
