By keeping the score manageable. After the Texans fell into the 21-0 hole, their Arian Foster-powered, clock-gobbling offensive approach was rendered useless. Foster got seven carries in the first quarter and only eight more the rest of the game, finishing with 46 yards. Including Saturday’s 19-13 playoff victory over the Bengals, the Texans are 8-0 this season when Foster exceeds 100 yards.
