The Redskins offense will have to work hard to "contain" J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney in order to be successful Sunday, Washington tight end Vernon Davis said.
"They can change the game, they're big time playmakers. So we have to be cognizant of that, and be aware of where they are at all times," Davis said.
Davis pointed to Watt's and Clowney's speed and athleticism which makes them difficult to stop. The duo have combined for 14.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and a touchdown for a Houston defense ranked third in the NFL by Football Outsiders.
While not entirely unbothered by getting shutout of the passing game in Tampa, Davis isn't worried about his contribution to the Redskins offense.
"It hurts, man. I had to go in and tell Jay, 'Man we need to sit down, I need to take you to Taco Bell or Jamba Juice, man, so we can talk," Davis joked. "Come on, Jay. Come on, Jay. Give me the ball, Jay. Give it to me."
"For me I'm elated to be apart of the journey. It doesn't bother me at all when it comes to catches," Davis said. "I just wait for my opportunity, man. It doesn't bother me. It doesn't. You know, if my teammates are successful, we're winning, that's what I want."
"I feel like they're doing everything they possibly can to make sure that everyone is involved," Davis said.
"Everyone wants to win," Davis said. "We just want to make sure the fans are behind us and we're in it together."
