Week 5: vs Indianapolis Colts
All RB vs IND
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Thursday Night game will feature two NFC South rivals clashing in Houston's NRG Stadium. In good news for the Texans, Arian Foster did look relatively healthy in his first action of the year and afterwards declared himself 100% healthy, just admitting he had a 'bad game' (8/10/0 rushing with 3/25/0 receiving at Atlanta last week). Local sources suggest that he will receive a far heavier workload in this Thursday night game now that Foster has 'tested' his groin in game conditions.
The Colts' rush D is ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 119.5 yards allowed per game, with four rushing scores given out to date. Jacksonville managed 24/60/0 rushing at Indianapolis last week - Tennessee managed 27/88/2 on the ground against this defense two games back.
This looks like a nice matchup for Foster, who is likely to get a lot of work in this game given the state of the Colts' passing game/the multiple injuries to receivers in play this week.
