It didn’t mean much for the Houston Texans. They trailed 41-0 at the time, which was the score at halftime.
The Dolphins set a franchise record for most points in a half with their 41-0 halftime lead, breaking a 48-year-old mark. Miami’s previous record for a half was 35 in 1967.
Tannehill was 12 of 12 for 231 yards and four touchdowns in the first half, and running back Lamar Miller had 175 yards on 14 carries.
Clowney has played in 10 games for the Texans since they made him the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2014.
He missed almost all of his rookie season, playing only parts of four games, as he worked through a torn lateral meniscus and lateral articular cartilage damage.
This season, Clowney missed one game. He was inactive against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week with a sprained ankle. Clowney was questionable for Sunday’s game as he worked back from the ankle injury.
