The Cincinnati Bengals were the first to strike in Saturday's AFC Wild Card game as they took a 7-0 lead over the Houston Texans midway through the first quarter (due largely in part to a 52-yard pass interference call).
But the Texans offense quickly responded to tie the game.
Foster kicked things off on the Texans third drive of the game with a four-yard run and he picked up 20 more on his next carry with a nice change-of-direction move. The Texans momentum continued on the next play as Yates hit Owen Daniels for a 21-yard gain.
On that same play, the Bengals' Reggie Nelson was hit with a 15-yard flag for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head/neck area. Judge for yourself on the penalty:
That set up Foster's touchdown which came on an eight-yard run. Foster is the early star in this game with 47 yards on seven carries. The Texans should be confident if he continues running at that rate.
