Arian Foster RB HOU Jan 05 '13
Arian Foster rushed 32 times for 140 yards and a touchdown and caught eight passes for 34 yards as the Texans defeated the Bengals in the Wild Card Round, 19-13.
Foster brought the sustaining, chain-moving element to a Houston offense that generally struggled in the passing game against Cincinnati. Although he didn't have any truly long runs (best gain was 17), Foster carried the mail like the true workhorse he is and scored the Texans' only touchdown. While Saturday's win wasn't convincing, it should give a sagging Texans team confidence, particularly from the standpoint that they can still field a dominant rushing attack.
