NFL Week 16: Bruce Arians may be out of a job again, in a good way

After the game, Tebow was asked who told him he wouldn't be playing in the wildcat and he said: "It just kind of happens."

Texans' Foster ill

Houston running back Arian Foster left Sunday's game in the third quarter because of an irregular heartbeat and didn't return. Afterward, neither he nor Texans Coach Gary Kubiak seemed concerned.

"I'll be OK," Foster told reporters. "It's a very minor situation, so I'll be OK."

Kubiak said Foster experienced the problem once before in practice.

"He calms down and he's fine," the coach said.

The Texans' medical staff cleared Foster to return to the game, but Kubiak thought it best to give him the rest of the day off.

Slowing his roll

There's no shame in running for 86 yards against the league's fifth-ranked rush defense. But Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, who did that at Houston on Sunday, left himself a good piece of work to break Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record.

Peterson would need to run for 208 yards in the season finale against Green Bay to eclipse the record of 2,105 yards, set by Dickerson with the Los Angeles Rams in 1984. Peterson had 210 yards rushing against the Packers on Dec. 2 and 212 against St. Louis last week.

Although the Vikings won, 23-6, the Texans did a decent job containing Peterson, who had his lowest rushing total since gaining 79 yards in an Oct. 14 loss at Washington. He had rushed for at least 100 yards in eight consecutive games.

"We knew they were going to focus on the run, which is OK," Peterson said of the Texans. "It felt good to see other guys get involved and us continue to move the ball down and score some points."

Philly farewell?

Andy Reid might have coached his last home game for the Eagles.

Reid, the NFL's longest-tenured coach, saw his team collect its 11th loss Sunday, the same number of defeats he had as a rookie coach in 1999.

The Eagles almost forced overtime in their home finale against Washington. But almost didn't cut it.

Asked if he believes Sunday was his last home game, Reid said: "I don't know that. I have nothing to tell you on that. I'm the coach right now, and I'm just coaching. That's what I'm doing, the best that I possibly can."

Before the season, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he expected "substantial improvement" over last season's 8-8 record. Reid has a year left on a contract that guarantees him about $6 million annually.

Parting shot

All signs point to San Diego sacking Coach Norv Turner after the season.
