Houston’s Arian Foster shows respect to Chuck Pagano with touchdown celebration (VIDEO)

Shutdown Corner

From a football angle, the Houston Texans loss to the Indianapolis Colts meant they squandered a chance to lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. From a human angle, Chuck Pagano's return to the sidelines for the Colts after a bout with cancer was the most important story on the field.

Even Texans running back Arian Foster recognized that. After he scored a touchdown, Foster ran to the sign that read, "Chuckstrong." He hit it, then bowed as a sign of respect to Pagano.

By Week 17, it's easy to get wrapped up in playoff berths and homefield advantage and byes. Foster's celebration was a nice reminder that there are things more important than football.
