Not If They Deploy Vickers Correctly. The Huston Texans are going to have to establish the run game when the play Baltimore Sunday. The weather conditions may make it difficult to pass the ball. The last time the Texans played the Ravens in week 6 Arian Foster only ran for 49 yards on 15 carries. If the Texans want Foster to have a big game the team needs to have two backs in the backfield, one being Foster the other Lawrence Vickers.
Lawrence Vickers the former Browns player has a ton of experience opening holes against Baltimore. When the Browns played the Ravens in 2010 and Peyton Hillis had 147 yards rushing the football it was Lawrence Vickers leading the way. Vickers may have more experience against the Ravens than any other player in Houston. When Vickers was a Cleveland Brown hey faced the Baltimore Ravens twice a year and he did it for five years.
Vickers was a key blocker on special teams too. There is no doubt Lawrence Vickers knows how to play when facing the Baltimore Ravens. If Foster wants to have a break out game this Sunday, he should insist on Lawrence Vickers leading the way. Vickers hits, hits, and then he hits some more. Vickers always played a huge role in the run game in Cleveland, if Houston is to be successful on the ground its going to be Vickers leading the way.
