Texans Vs. Ravens: Arian Foster, Houston Offense Coming Alive

In this Texans vs. Ravens game, an intriguing development: Houston appears to have put together some semblance of an offense. Thanks, Arian Foster. The Texans running back accounted for 57 yards and a score on Houston's first touchdown drive of the game. Baltimore leads 17-13 in the second quarter.

Foster started off the drive with an explosive 28-yard run up the left sideline, which was upheld after the Ravens challenged whether he stepped out of bounds. He finished it with a one-yard touchdown run.

In between, he also leaked out on a screen to convert a surprise third-and-nine and get the Texans inside the 10-yard-line. Check out the stab he made to pull that off:

Quarterback T.J. Yates was also much more poised on this drive. He found Andre Johnson for a pair of first downs, including a key 13-yard gain on third-and-nine at around midfield.

But Foster has been the key for the Texans, as he was all season. He has already amassed 95 yards on 15 carries to go with 29 receiving yards. That'll do.
