The hits on Ryan and Smith happened on consecutive plays in the first quarter. First, there was the hit on Smith.
Then there was the sack on Ryan.
Clowney single-handedly forced the Falcons to punt on this drive. The Smith hit happened on second-and-4 and Smith lost two yards, forcing Atlanta into a third-and-6. The sack on Ryan cost the Falcons seven yards, forcing a fourth-and-13. Amazingly, Clowney didn't block the Falcons punt, but nobody would have been shocked if he had.
