After the way Arian Foster played against the Chicago Bears, he deserves some love.

Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle says Arian Foster is getting plenty of it from Pro Bowl voters.

Foster leads all running backs in votes from fans in the early stages of the process. He's the third leading vote getter overall behind a couple of no-name quarterbacks (Peyton Manning and Tom Brady).

J.J. Watt is the only other Texans to lead his position in the early voting.

Fans can vote through December 17th.

Foster will likely be the starter for the AFC as he leads Chris Johnson in rushing yards despite playing one fewer game. Still, for Foster to get more votes than Adrian Peterson shows how fans have come to understand his impact for the conference's best team.

It would be Foster's third-consecutive Pro Bowl.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, players who play in the Super Bowl are not eligible to appear in the Pro Bowl but do get credit for having been named to the team.
