Arian Foster Named AFC Offensive Player Of The Week...Again

Just three weeks after being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, Arian Foster is at it again, courtesy of the video game numbers he posted in Nashville during the 41-7 thrashing of Bud Adams' salaried employees. The beautiful reasons why he won this honor (which, as we all know, pales in comparison to the vaunted Samsung Game Ball of the Week award that we deemed Arian fit to capture earlier this week) again are after the jump.

-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.
-Became the first player to have 100 yards rushing and receiving and at least one touchdown run and one touchdown catch since running back Brian Westbrook on September 23, 2007.
-Foster surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark for the second time this season and the 11th time in his career.
-He had a career-long 78-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, tying for the longest scoring-pass play in franchise history.
-Foster’s 234 yards from scrimmage are the most in a game by an AFC running back this season.
-In his third year from Tennessee, this is Foster’s third career Offensive Player of the Week Award. He most recently won the award in Week 4 of this season.

Remember when Texans fans were worried about who was going to play RB heading into the 2010 season? Yeah, me neither.
