Two players from the Texans made the all-midseason team as selected by Pro Football Talk.

Here is what author Evan Silva had to say about his two Houston selections, Arian Foster and J.J. Watt:

Arian Foster

The league leader in offensive touches — and a fantasy footballer's dream — Foster is on pace for 384 rushing attempts, 1,694 all-purpose yards, and 22 touchdowns, at times literally carrying the Texans' offense on his back. Although Foster's yards-per-carry average (4.01) is down behind an offensive line mixing and matching on the right side, Foster remains the most valuable offensive player for the AFC's premier team. No NFL player finds pay dirt with more regularity. Another plowhorse back having a terrific season, Marshawn Lynch was strongly considered over Foster.

J.J. Watt

No defensive player has won NFL MVP since Vikings defensive tackle Alan Page 41 years ago. If anyone is capable of bucking that trend in 2012, it's NFL sacks leader Watt. "Five-technique" ends in 3-4 defenses aren't supposed to cause constant backfield havoc like Watt does. Kryptonite for enemy passing attacks, Watt is on pace for 21 sacks, 34 tackles for loss, and 20 pass breakups.
