    I don't care who you are, that's domination.

    I'm just now watching the game & Collinsworth mentioned that Foster gained 91 yards with over 5 minutes left in the 2nd Qtr. Then Forsett rips one for 20 yards. That means our offense had over 100 yards rushing on the vaunted Chicago Bears defense........ That's bad ass.

    FYI, the Bears are 5th in run defense, averaging only 92 yards per game. We had that in the first half.

    Am I the only one thinking it was a dominating performance?

    First half we definitely gashed them for some big runs. They shut us down in the 2nd half, but luckily so did we.

    Collinsworth misspoke when he said Foster had 91 yards the first half, he included the 25 yard Forsett run in that. We finished with 127 yards rushing.

    The Texans had 112 yards rushing in the 1st half. And Foster was at 91 yards before his last 2 carries of the half, a 9 yard loss and a 3 yard gain, put him at 85.

    Foster very definitely had 91 yards in the first half. I took note of it myself on the ESPN.com box score prior to halftime.

    The second half of the game was pretty much a draw, but according to the stats in the first half (not the score, but the stats) the Texans were blowing them out.
