NFL Schedule 2012, Week 9: Texans Target Bills for Beatdown

Houston will look to run roughshod over the Bills and the league's worst rushing defense in their Week 9 matchup.

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Texans have their sights set on a win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 9 that would allow the Texans some serious breathing room in the AFC South.

The Texans (6-1) will give star running back Arian Foster every chance possible to pound Buffalo's (3-4) mediocre run defense, which has allowed a league-worst 176.9 yards per game. Foster rolled up 98 yards and two touchdowns in Houston's Week 9 43-13 stomping of the Baltimore Ravens. Quarterback Matt Schaub may also find it easy going against Buffalo's 22nd-ranked passing defense (247.3 yards per game), and the Bills will have their hands full just trying to keep up. Buffalo is coming off a 35-24 loss to the Tennessee Titans where they gave up a game-winning touchdown with just 1:03 remaining in the fourth quarter.
