Arian Foster Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

After basically crushing the Steelers all on his own last weekend, Arian Foster was rewarded by being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week Wednesday. Foster rushed for 155 yards on 30 carries with one touchdown.

It's the second time he's won the award, having previously been named after his huge Week 1 last season against the Colts. It was also his 10th career 100-yard game according to the Texans crack PR department.

It's also the eighth time a Texan has won the Offensive POW award and Foster is the fourth different player and second running back (after Slaton).

I'm not surprised by this award, but it is cool that Foster won the award in the first big week he played again this season. He's a special, special player who's only enhanced by the system the Texans play in. Plus, it was pretty sweet seeing Foster run through tackles from Troy Polalamu. That guy is annoying.
