Arian Foster Looks To Add To Already Impressive 2010 Campaign On Monday Night Football

We're just about one hour from kickoff for the Houston Texans' Week 14 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. The Texans' playoff chances are hanging by a thread following Jacksonville's win on Sunday. A win however against the Ravens keeps the Texans within striking distance considering they have a Week 17 tilt with the Jaguars still on the schedule. Before the action starts tonight, a quick note about Texans' running back Arian Foster and the remarkable '10 season he's having.

Heading into this week, the '09 undrafted free agent led the NFL with 1,230 rushing yards heading into Week 13.

After Maurice Jones-Drew's 101-yard outing on Sunday, Foster trails MJD (1,278) by 48 yards for the NFL lead heading into tonight's Baltimore-Houston game. If Foster finishes the season as the NFL's leading rusher, he would join Priest Holmes as the only undrafted players to do so since 1967. Foster, who also leads the league with 13 rushing touchdowns in his first 12 games, continues to move up the all-time single-season rushing leaderboards among undrafted players.
