Although the Houston Texans have been mauled by injuries this season, they continue to win. Thing is, they're doing it the old school way of pounding the rock on the ground and playing tough defense.
Currently, Houston has the NFL's No. 2 rushing offense (average over 150 yards per game) and the defense ranks in the Top 5 against the pass and rush. Their Week 15 opponent are the Carolina Panthers who have the No. 24 ranked rush defense, so RB Arian Foster will destroy them.
On the year, Carolina allows almost 130 rush yards per game and also almost 240 pass yards per game (rank No. 19). So, in addition to running well Foster will slice through them for some decent receiving yards as well.
The Panthers have weak LBs and not too much of a threatening pass rush, so QB TJ Yates will have time to throw when dropping back and being that he's still getting acclimated to the game, Foster on screens and check-downs will be there.
Right now, Foster is the main focus of Houston's offense, therefore coach Gary Kubiak needs to use his versatility to its' fullest extent.
