Quick Takeaways


Guard Nick Zakelj was the 49ers offensive line's highest-graded player, earning an overall grade of 65.7 through 36 snaps. The starters in the game were tackle Jaylon Moore (45.1 overall grade), guard Aaron Banks (55.0), center Jake Brendel (65.0), guard Spencer Burford (37.9), and tackle Colton McKivitz (61.1).

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk earned the offense's highest overall grade—86.9. However, the sample size was only two snaps.

Tight end Ross Dwelley, who caught all three of his targets for 42 yards, earned the highest overall offensive grade (79.5) after Juszczyk and the highest receiving grade (91.3) among 49ers quarterbacks' targets.

Speaking of quarterbacks, all three played in the game (not counting Jimmy Garoppolo, of course). Starter Trey Lance, who spent much of his 24 snaps avoiding the Texans pass rush due to sub-par offensive-line play, earned an overall grade of 46.3. Nate Sudfeld, who played just 16 snaps, graded slightly worse at 45.6 overall.

Rookie Brock Purdy emerged as the highest-graded quarterback and the third-highest-graded offensive player overall, going 13-of-20 passing for 182 yards and an interception.

Jeff Wilson Jr. was the highest-graded running back (not counting Juszczyk), with second-year tailback Trey Sermon coming in with the second-highest grade (69.6) among the position group.

Defensive end Kemoko Turay was the 49ers' highest-graded player, earning an 89.5 overall grade and a team-high 81.1 pass-rushing grade through 21 snaps.

Rookie cornerback Samuel Womack's 71.9 overall grade was the highest among non-defensive linemen, and his 79.4 run-defense grade led the team.
