Arian Foster Wins AFC Offensive Player Of The Month For October

That's your AFC Offensive Player of the Month right there. No, not the flailing Jaguars. Arian Freaking Foster.

This makes all kinds of sense, considering Arian won AFC Offensive Player of the Week twice last month for his performances against Pittsburgh and Bud Adams' Army of Darkness. Hit the jump to see exactly how Arian Foster hunted (and KILLED) the month of red October.

-For the month, Foster totaled an NFL-best 809 scrimmage yards (499 rush, 310 receiving) with five touchdowns as he helped the Texans to a 3-2 record in October.
-Foster’s 499 rushing yards led the AFC and ranked fourth in the NFL in October.
-His 310 receiving yards ranked first among NFL running backs for the month.
-Foster’s five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving) in October led the AFC and tied for second in the NFL (Adrian Peterson had seven).
-In Week 4, Foster rushed for 155 yards on 30 carries (5.2 average) with one touchdown in a 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He became the first player in the NFL this season to average at least five yards on 30 or more carries in a game.
-In Week 7, Foster rushed for 115 yards on 25 carries (4.6 average) with two rushing touchdowns and a career-high 119 receiving yards with one touchdown reception in a 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans. He became the first player to have 100 yards rushing and receiving and at least one touchdown run and one touchdown catch in a game since running back Brian Wesbrook did it on September 23, 2007.
-In his third season from Tennessee, this is Foster’s second career Player of the Month Award. He previously won the award in September of 2010.

I have to think that every team in the NFL that didn't see fit to burn a draft pick on Arian Foster (including the Texans, though probably not nearly as much) has to kick itself every time they see stuff like this. Namaste!
