This one went about how I expected it to. Ben Roethlisberger had no time to throw the ball and the Steelers defensive line was pushed around throughout the game. Arian Foster ran for 155 yards on 30 carries. The Steelers briefly came to live for a few nice drives in the 3rd quarter, but after a long Foster TD run, the Texans pass rush shifted into another gear down the stretch and Roethlisberger and the offense didn't have much of a chance. The Texans also had 2 touchdowns erased by dumb penalties so this one was that close to being a complete blowout. Looking ahead, the Steelers have major issues on both sides of the ball and have played poor games in 3 out of their 4 contests so far this season. Pittsburgh looks more like an 8-8 also-ran then a playoff team right now.

There are faster running backs in the NFL than Arian Foster. There are bigger backs, too.
There might be backs with better vision and superior cutting ability. There might even be smarter backs.
But there aren't many who have all these gifts, and maybe that's one of the reasons he led the NFL in rushing last season.
He would be the first to tell you he has been successful...
