Tate averaged 5.4 yards rushing the ball this year, a whole yard better on average than Foster (4.4 yards per rush for Foster). Foster had seven games where he averaged less than 3.7 per attempt (Miami, Oakland, Baltimore, Jacksonville x2, Atlanta & Cincinnati). For comparison sake Ward averaged 3.4 yards per attempt this year.
