Arian Foster Texans
January 8, 2012 by staff
Arian Foster Texans, The first time Arian Foster played against the Bengals, they limited him to 41 yards on 15 carries. That’s 2.7 yards a carry. His longest run was 9 yards.
The Bengals saw a different Foster at Reliant Stadium. This time, he carried 24 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns. His 42-yard touchdown run down the right sideline finished the scoring.
“I’m excited to help us bring a playoff win to the city,” Foster said after the 31-10 victory. “The fans were thirsty. You could feel the energy and the buzz.”
The Bengals knew what was coming. The Texans finished second in rushing. Coach Gary Kubiak kept Foster out of the last game, a one-point loss to Tennessee, to keep him fresh for the Bengals. But they couldn’t stop him.
“I always give credit to my offensive line,” Foster said. “They dominated, and the rest of us reaped the benefits.”
After a jittery start, Foster was incredibly consistent. He carried 12 times for 70 yards and a touchdown in the first half. He carried 12 times for 83 yards in the second.
On Foster’s first-half touchdown, he paid a tribute to Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon.
After his 8-yard TD, he ran to the goalposts and did the Dream Shake, faking left, faking right and shooting. A terrific tribute to Houston icon.
