• Foster’s TD catch gives Texans 10-3 lead

    Summary of 7 articles · Updated Nov 12, 2012
    Foster had a terrific drive to give the Texans a 10-3 lead with 4:14 left in the first half. It was the sixth receiving TD of Foster’s career and his second this season. With Arian Foster carrying the load, the Texans have plodded out to a 10-3 lead over the Bears at halftime of Sunday Night Football. So it was no surprise the Bears were impressed with Texans running back Arian Foster last night. Foster finished the game with a season-high 34 touches this season on a night when Schaub struggled to find a rhythm throwing the ball and the Texans were without injured running back Ben Tate. Foster, whose 10 rushing touchdowns lead the NFL, met every challenge before him Sunday: He rushed for 102 yards on a defense that ranked fourth against the run ; he scored the game’s only touchdown on a play that showcased his athleticism; and he held onto the ball against a unit notorious for forcing turnovers, as he ended Week 10 without a fumble to his name this season. After quarterback Jay Cutler had dumped the ball off to tight end Kellen Davis, safety Daniel Manning, who spent his first five seasons in the NFL in Chicago, knocked the ball to the turf, with the ball bouncing into the hands of inside linebacker Tim Dobbins, who returned the fumble 32 yards to the Bears' 28-yard line.
