Research Notes

  • Arian Foster rushed for a game-high 111 yards against the Bills on Sunday and a lot of credit goes to his offensive line. Just 16 of his rush yards came after first contact, tied for the fewest in a 100-yard game since the start of 2009 (min. 20 carries). His 4.0 yards before contact per rush was tied for his highest in a game this season.

  • Matt Schaub completed 5-of-6 passes outside of the pocket for 84 yards and both of his touchdowns on Sunday. Schaub has thrown 24 touchdowns and two interceptions on throws outside the pocket over the last four seasons, the best touchdown-to-interception differential in the league on such throws.
