Arian Foster stakes Texans to halftime lead

It took them a moment, but the Texans figured out that when the conditions are bad, and it’s hard to throw the ball, maybe you should do something different.

Brilliant, I know.

With Arian Foster carrying the load, the Texans have plodded out to a 10-3 lead over the Bears at halftime of Sunday Night Football.

Foster has 17 carries for 85 yards, and caught a 2-yard touchdown pass.

That makes him the star of a first half which saw six combined turnovers (four for Bears, two for the Texans).

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has made some plays, but too many drops (including one by Brandon Marshall that could have been a touchdown) and two picks have the Bears struggling.
