Seahawks’ Jadeveon Clowney comes up with the scoop-and-score for Seattle
In August, the Seattle Seahawks infamously managed to acquire Pro Bowl pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney from the Houston Texans. While Clowney had a major impact during his time in Houston, the former No. 1 overall pick has wasted no time in taking over games for the Seahawks as well.
With Week 10’s installment of Monday Night Football being no different, Clowney gave the Seahawks the team’s biggest highlight of the first half of the NFC clash against the undefeated San Francisco 49ers. Although Clowney didn’t secure the sack, he did capitalize on the success of his teammate as he completed the scoop and score to put Seattle on the board.
SCOOP AND SCORE.

Before Clowney’s heroics late in the first half, the Seahawks hadn’t scored and trailed their NFC West rivals by the score of 10-0.
Unfortunately for both Clowney and the Seahawks, his defensive touchdown late in the second quarter would ultimately serve as Seattle’s only points of the first half. San Francisco entered the locker room leading by the score of 10-7 while doing so with momentum on their side.
After Clowney put the first points of the day on the board for Seattle, the Seahawks promptly drove down the field en route to potentially tying the game or even taking the lead. The 49ers defense had other plans, though, as San Francisco managed to stop the Seahawks via a strip from defensive back Jaquiski Tartt on Seahawks rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf.
Metcalf lost the football before entering the end zone with San Francisco closing out the half on top.
