A big part of that is going to be the running game coming alive. Ben Tate has done an excellent job in limited carries. We need Arian Foster to start running like we expect him to. Breaking off some bigger runs consistently. We need one of those 20 carries, 130 rushing yards and 2 TD games out of him just to jump start his 2013 season.
Even though the Seahawks have an active defense, this may be the first game this season that he breaks the 100-yard rushing mark. Or even the 80-yard rushing mark for that matter. He's been that bad so far this season, averaging 3.9 yards per carry which is not good enough for one of the best running backs in the league. A few big runs is all he needs to dominate again.
