Texans vs. Bears: How Chicago might try to contain Arian Foster

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Slowing down Houston's star running back is among the biggest keys for the Bears Sunday.

When the Chicago Bears play the Houston Texans on Sunday in a battle for sole possession of the league's second best record, the game will also feature Chicago's stingy defense trying to slow down star Houston's running back Arian Foster.

Matt Bowen of Comcast Sports Net Chicago broke down how the Bears might try to stop Foster in a video scouting report. Bowen believes the Bears will use free safety Chris Conte in the box, which should help prevent Foster's ability to cut back on lead runs.

Foster has 192 carries for 770 yards (4.0 per carry) and 10 touchdowns on the season. As a receiver, he also has 12 catches for 77 yards and a touchdown.

Foster had 111 rushing yards in a win over Buffalo last week.

The Bears' defense is giving up just 15.0 points per game (second in the league). Chicago is giving up 88 rushing yards per game, which is sixth in the league.
