Jadeveon Clowney Vying For Career-First Championship Game

Ravens linebacker Jadeveon Clowney says Baltimore has a plan to stop C.J Stroud in the Divisional Round on Saturday.

Since Baltimore beat the Texans in Week 1, rookie C.J Stroud has become a prominent quarterback in the league.

Jadeveon Clowney was drafted by Houston with the No.1 overall pick in 2014. However, he’s focussed on his own achievements rather than the narrative factor.

“He just doesn’t look like a rookie quarterback out there,” Jadeveon Clowney said of Stroud.

“He’s making smart decisions with his passing and putting those guys in good situations and not turning it over as much — I think that’s good for their side — and he’s executing, getting the ball out his hand fast. So, for us, we’ve just got to execute our game plan and disguise and be on the same page, so we [can] try to get to him.”

Clowney has been to the Pro Bowl thrice and played for Seattle, Tennessee and Cleveland as well. However, he’s never made it past the Divisional Round of the postseason.

“I’m in Year 10, and you never know how many more you’ve got left,” he said. 

“I’ve been in the game 10 years and haven’t been this far; [I] haven’t won or gotten a bye — that first-round bye — ever. So, this is big for me and — in my career — where I’m at. I just hope I can continue to help this team and help us get our long-term goal, [which] is to win a Super Bowl. And like I said, we’ve got to knock the Texans off just to do that.”

“To me, it’s the next game up,” Clowney said.

“I just want to win, because it’s the playoffs; it’s bigger than just worrying about the Texans. There is much more at stake. It’s either win or go home. And we want to get away with this win so we can keep fighting for the goal we’ve been fighting for all year. What you do all of this for is to try to get to that Super Bowl and win it.”
