Bengals Vs. Texans 2012: Arian Foster Blows Up, Leads Houston To Win

The Houston Texans made their first playoff appearance in franchise history on Saturday and they also walk away with their first playoff win beating the Cincinnati Bengals, 31-10. The Texans looked like a really dominant team getting contributions from the running game and their defense.

The Texans had a lot of guys contribute to this win. Andre Johnson finished with 90 yards receiving and a touchdown. J.J. Watt had a sack and an interception return for a touchdown.

But the real MVP of the game is Arian Foster. It's really not even close. From the Texans first scoring drive to their last, Foster played a significant role. He ended the game with 153 yards rushing and 29 yards receiving. He scored two touchdowns -- with the highlight being this 42-yarder -- and when you add back up Ben Tate the Texans have a winning backfield. They're going to be really hard to beat down the stretch when they visit the Ravens next weekend.
