Foster On Pace to Be Third Fastest Back to Gain 5000 Yards

Arian Foster is on pace to be the third fastest running back in NFL history to gain 5000 yards from scrimmage according to Nick Scurfield of houstontexans.com.

Foster is in pretty good company as the two backs ahead of him are Edgerrin James and Eric Dickerson. Foster has 4633 yards in 37 games, which is more than all of the NFL’s top-ten leaders in yards from scrimmage. Through 37 games, Emmitt Smith had 3368 yards from scrimmage, and Walter Payton had 3974.

With that level of talent and Foster being backed up by running back Ben Tate, who could carry the load for most other teams, it is no wonder the Texans are emerging as a Superbowl favorite.
