Texans' mighty pass rush of Watt and Clowney provides stern test for Falcons' front

J.J. Watt feels as if he gets asked about Jadeveon Clowney every day.

When the Texans selected Clowney with the top overall pick, they instantly created what on paper looks like one of the league's most formidable pass rushes.

The two showed a glimpse of what they could do on the second play from scrimmage in last week's 32-0 loss in Arizona. Both charged from the right side and Watt sacked Carson Palmer.

Watt, however, did not want to read too much into the play. The Texans did nothing complicated, and Watt wasn't even paying attention to where Clowney lined up.

The Texans wrapped up two days of joint practices with Atlanta on Thursday. The teams meet in an exhibition game Saturday night.
