HOUSTON, Texas – Houston Texans fans didn’t get to see much of the dream, pass-rushing duo of J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney this season.

While Watt is having an MVP campaign, the Texans are shutting down Clowney. The top selection in the 2014 NFL Draft is going to season ending injured reserve to due issues with his right knee.

“Looking back at the draft, I definitely don’t think it was a mistake, because there wasn’t really a quarterback that was out there that they really liked,” Texans fan Alfredo Marcial said.

“I still think there’s hope for him and I don’t think they should give up on him,” added another fan, Jesse Berrospe.

As for Watt, he’s bidding to become the first defensive player since 1986 to win the NFL’s MVP Award.

“MVP no doubt. You know they always give it to a quarterback, but this time, it’s time they give it to a defensive player,” Marcial said.

The Texans next play the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday at Noon, Central Time.
