Here are the Lester’s Legends running back rankings for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.
1. Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
The Atlanta Falcons had the worst run defense of all the remaining playoff teams. They gave up 123.2 yards and a touchdown per game on the ground. Beast Mode has averaged 123 total yards with eight touchdowns in his past six games.
2. Arian Foster, Houston Texans
Foster has averaged 170 total yards with four touchdowns in his three career playoff games. Foster was “held” to 85 total yards in the first meeting with the New England Patriots, but he scored a touchdown.
3. Ray Rice, Baltimore Ravens
The Denver Broncos have the third-rank run defense, but Ray Rice is more versatile than most backs. If you slow him in the running game, he can still get his in the passing game.
4. Knowshon Moreno, Denver Broncos
Moreno averaged 110.8 with three touchdowns in the six games in which he assumed the starting gig. The Ravens ranked 20th in run defense, ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Seattle Seahawks didn’t exactly get out to the start they were hoping for on Sunday, getting down by two touchdowns early. However they were able to overcome the sluggish start as well as a key goal line fumble by Marshawn Lynch in order to beat the Washington Redskins. The win at Washington solidified the Seahawks as a real contender seeing that their weakness this season...
Just in case the Houston Texans needed any more fuel for this weekend's upcoming AFC Divisional playoff game, Boston sports writer Dan Shaughnessy provided them with some.
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently changed his Twitter avatar to this quote taken from a Shaughnessy article written on Sunday bashing the Texans after their Wild Card win over the Bengals...
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster used what Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote as bulletin board material by posting it as a his Twitter profile picture as they get ready to play the Patriots this week. I’m sure this will fire the Texans up a little more. After getting dismantled by the Patriots earlier in the season, it will be interesting to see how they play...
Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy obviously decided that his Monday column had to get people talking. And maybe even thrust himself in the conversation for Sunday’s Divisional round game between the Patriots and Texans.
Doing a well thought out, well reasoned column on why the Patriots would beat the Texans wouldn’t get the job done. So Shaughnessy goes with the most effective...
The above is what Texans running back Arian Foster is now using for his Twitter avatar. It is a cut and paste job from the article Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote yesterday in advance of next weekend's AFC playoff game between the Patriots and Texans. Shaughnessy is known for two things: being a troll while offending pretty much everyone, and making grandiose and hyperbolic...
Many NFL pundits aren’t giving the Texans much of a chance in their return trip to New England this weekend, not after stumbling to a 42-14 loss less than a month ago. Texans running back Arian Foster is soaking in all the doubt, though, and using it as motivation for his rematch with the Patriots.
Foster, who is very active on social media, changed his Twitter avatar to a photo...
Arian Foster of the Texans has a new Twitter avatar.

The L.A. Lakers continue to disappoint fans, as they have lost 4 in a row for the second time this season. Fan frustrations are showing in every form of social media these days, as shown by a picture tweeted today by Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who tweeted a photo of teammate Arian Foster as [...]
New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has seen it all, and his ability to diagnose opponents' strengths and tendencies is evidenced by the on-field instinct he displays.With the Houston Texans coming to town Sunday for a Divisional Round bout, Wilfork is preparing to defend the cut block. "That’s something that they do very, very well," Wilfork told...
After beating the Bengals 19-13 to open wildcard weekend for the second straight year, the Houston Texans (13-4) head into the divisional round as pretty heavy underdogs to the New England Patriots (12-4).
Though head coach Bill Belichick is inevitably sending a message that the 42-14 win in Week 14 means nothing now, Dan Shaughnessy has a different outlook in his column in the...
The bigger the game the better, at least that’s how Arian Foster has treated his first two trips to the postseason.
Foster became the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 100 yards in each of his first three playoff games on Sunday, tearing up the Bengals for 140 rushing yards. He began the feat last postseason by running for 153 yards against Cincinnati, followed...
Seattle is headed to Atlanta in a week, after they toppled the Redskins 24-14 in the final game of Wild Card Weekend. Robert Griffin III left the game with an injury and Marshawn Lynch dominated on the ground.
After a bye week off, the Patriots now know who their divisional round opponent is — and they should seem pretty familiar.
It wasn’t all that lone ago (just under a month, in fact) that the Houston Texans traveled to Gillette Stadium for what was billed as a heavyweight matchup between two Super Bowl contenders. The end result didn’t nearly match the hype, as Tom Brady and...
