Arian Foster wraps up rushing title, helps the Colts

Texans running back Arian Foster is your 2010 NFL rushing champion — and he’s a popular man in Indianapolis right now.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Foster has gone over 150 rushing yards, easily wrapping up the rushing title. And his big plays are a big part of the reason that the Texans are about to put away the Jaguars.

Although today’s game is meaningless for Houston, it means a lot in both Jacksonville and Indianapolis, where the Jaguars and Colts are still fighting for the AFC South.

With the Texans just eight minutes away from beating the Jaguars, it appears that the AFC South will be handed to the Colts — even though the Colts are struggling to beat the Titans.

UPDATE: It’s a final in Houston. The Texans win, 34-17, and the Colts win the AFC South. Foster wins the rushing title with 1,616 yards.

  1. Amazing! They could go 9-7 and still win their division and host a game. Meanwhile, my Patriots go 11-5 two years ago and can’t even sniff the playoffs.

    Enjoy this while you can, Indy. Once Manning calls it quits you are done. That being said, as long as you have him, you’ve always got a chance.

  2. Isn’t this a little premature? What if Steven Jackson runs for 400+ tonight? I mean, c’mon, it’s Seattle.

  3. 8man: it’s been a great 9 years and counting as a Colts fan in the AFC South. While Manning is great, it takes more than one person to win Championships. This might be why you’re always losing in Houston. However, if you would have included Freeney, Mathis, Saturday, Wayne, Clark, Bracket, Session…I might have agreed. Maybe next year.
