HOUSTON (AP) Jadeveon Clowney made big hits behind the line on consecutive plays and Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to DeVier Posey in the Houston Texans' 32-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night.

Clowney, the top overall pick in the draft, smacked down Atlanta's Antone Smith for a 2-yard loss and then sacked Matt Ryan on the Falcons' second series.

Jonathan Grimes returned a blocked punt for a touchdown and Andre Hal returned an interception 64 yards for another score for the Texans (1-1), who showed significant improvement after last week's 32-0 loss in Arizona.

Left tackle Sam Baker was carted off the field in the second quarter with a right knee injury for the Falcons (1-1). Baker, who started 16 games in 2012, played in just four games last season because of a left knee injury that required surgery in November.
