Blue Most Underrated Player For Texans – by Nathanael Rutherford
"The Houston Texans have one of the NFL’s best running backs in Arian Foster, and while he may be an underrated star in his own respect, the Texans have yet another player who is even more undervalued than Foster. And he’s Foster’s running mate in the Houston backfield."
"It’s tough to draw the conclusion you’re asking for here. The Texans played the Steelers last season and lost 30-23 in a Monday night game in Pittsburgh. Their offense was decent, except for in the final minute and a half of the first half in which running back Arian Foster and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrickboth committed turnovers that led to touchdowns almost immediately. Those turnovers contributed to the Texans giving up 24 points in the second quarter against the Steelers. The problem is, that was still in the early phase of this new Texans regime and at the time they were in the process of their transition. Furthermore, the Texans will have a completely new quarterback this season, which will have a subtle but significant impact on their offense."
