Texans' Foster faces Browns' stout run D

Why to watch
One thing the Browns can do, with some gusto, is stop the run. And few teams can pound the rock the way the Texans can. Houston has a few blowout wins already this season, and winning games like this are essential to pulling away from the pack in the AFC South.

Inside story
Andre Johnson has a legit shot to come back from his hamstring injury this week, which all of a sudden makes the Texans that much more of a threat. Colt McCoy's lack of any downfield passing acumen will allow Wade Phillips to tee off. Even if he plays, Peyton Hillis has yet to be a factor this season, and the Browns are going to need to find a way to control the clock and prevent a shootout.
