Bowers played significantly in the game at Green Bay prior to Thanksgiving, and had a pair of tackles while causing disruption in the backfield on a handful of occasions. Against Tennessee, he made his first career start and had a single tackle although he did register three quarterback hurries. But Bowers really showed his potential in last week’s loss to Carolina.

Against the Panthers, Bowers had eight tackles - five of which were for a loss - and a 1.5 sacks. The lanky defensive end had the mobile Cam Newton moving around all afternoon and even managed to corral him on a couple of occasions. More importantly, Bowers made tackles in the run game.
