Arian Foster vs. the Patriots linebackers
Maybe the most dangerous aspect of the Texans offense is their balance. Arian Foster (pictured) may be the league's best running back. The Patriots are built to be good against the run, with Brandon Spikes establishing himself as one of the league's best run-stuffers. Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo was teammates with Foster at the University of Tennessee. How his unit performs against Foster will be crucial. The Patriots have only allowed one 100-yard rusher this season—Baltimore's Ray Rice in Week 3.
