Power Play of the Season (so far)

There's only one real choice for the Power Play of the Season (so far): Adrian Clayborn's destructive sack of Matt Ryan

I can watch that clip over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. It's been a long time since I've seen a Buccaneer lay such a beating on a quarterback. Clayborn made a beautiful inside move against Sam Baker, getting the big left tackle completely off balance, before destroying Matt Ryan with a huge, but perfectly legal hit. 

The result: a forced fumble, which was recovered by the Bucs. It stopped the Falcons from scoring either a touchdown or a field goal, which turned out to be pretty crucial in that three-point game. 

But it was also a great thing to see. It exemplified the attitude with which the defensive line has been playing, and it was the perfect example of the impact Adrian Clayborn has been making this season. Clayborn so far looks like a star, and certainly a major hit with the 20th overall pick in the draft. Hopefully the big man can continue that quality of play. He's off to a good start so far.
