Arian Foster is a very underrated player who is among the best running backs in the league. His play down the stretch allowed the Texans to secure their first playoff berth in team history. If the Texans want to make a big splash this season, they will need to win a road playoff game at some point.
In the early part of the season, the Houston Texans played with a lot of balance. However, the injuries to Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson made this team focus on running the ball. This more run-heavy style will actually benefit Houston in the long run.
Houston will need to play an outdoor game if they hope to earn a Super Bowl appearance. Windy or cold weather conditions call for a more run-heavy attack. The Texans have been playing that type of football for over a month.
The only concern is that Houston is a southern team, used to playing inside a retractable-roof stadium. This group doesn't have a lot of experience in cold-weather situations.
