Texans running back Arian Foster has been named the Week 4 AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Foster ran for 155 yards on 30 carries (5.2 average) with a touchdown in the Texans’ 17-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. His rushing total was the highest in the AFC in Week 4 and the most by any player against Pittsburgh since 2003. Foster scored the game-winning touchdown on a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter, shedding tackles from Pro Bowlers LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu along the way.

After missing two of the first three games with a hamstring injury, Foster became the first player in the NFL this season to average at least five yards with 30 or more carries in a game. The 2010 NFL rushing leader and first-team All-Pro posted his 10th-career 100-yard rushing game and first of this season.

This is the second time Foster has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He also won the award in Week 1 of last season, when he ran for a career-high 231 yards and three touchdowns against the Indianapolis Colts.

Even after running for 155 yards per game on the Steelers, they still have the #1 run defense in the league only allowing 157.5 ypg

Good job mister Foster

What do you think his price was before Sunday? If anything, he just solidified the high price he earned last year. Problem is, the Texans can't do much about it right now, because they only have 2 million in cap space. Signing him long term would require restructuring Mario's deal as well, but at this point I'm not opposed to locking up both of them long term.

Arian was clearly head & shoulders above the rest of the competition.

I don't know how he doesn't fumble more. He has the ball away from his body and very high.

I think Foster would tell you that the green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm...or something along those lines.

Probably the same reason we never see him get lit up. The man is very slippery and can avoid contact like no one can. When he does get tackled, it's usually when he sees it coming and falls forward taking minimal contact.

I'm betting Arian thinks like Bruce

Fair enough. Or fumbles are anti-awesomness and that not allowed near him.
