Gameday: Houston Texans at San Francisco 49ers

Oct 6, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers will host the Houston Texans at Candlestick Park for Sunday Night Football. The two teams last met during the regular season in October of 2009 when the Texans beat the 49ers with a 24-21 in Houston. The only other time the two teams met during the regular season was in 2005 when the 49ers won 20-17 in overtime.


Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has an unlucky streak going. In his past seven games, including the playoffs last season, he has thrown at least one interception. In three of those games, he threw two interceptions. He is hoping to break that streak against the 49ers.

The 49ers got their offense back on track last week and hope to continue that production against the Texans. The offense was only able to score one combined touchdown during weeks two and three, but got into the endzone five times last week against the Rams. They did it with a strong running game by Frank Gore, who rushed for 153 yards.

Last week, the 49ers (2-2) defeated the St. Louis Rams 35-11. The Texans (2-2) were defeated 23-20 by the Seattle Seahawks.

For the 49ers, WR Quinton Patton (foot) is out. CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee), OT Anthony Davis (shoulder), TE Vernon Davis (hamstring), DT Ray McDonald (ankle, ankle), RB Bruce Miller (quadricep), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), DT Justin Smith (shoulder), and LB Patrick Willis (groin) are listed as questionable. TE Demarcus Dobbs (calf), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), T Joe Staley(hamstring, ankle), and WR Kyle Williams (knee) are listed as probable.

For the Texans, G Brandon Brooks (toe) and LB Tim Dobbins (hamstring) are out. T Duane Brown (toe) and WR Andre Johnson (shin) are listed as questionable. LB Bryan Braman (hamstring, shoulder), LB Brian Cushing (concussion), TE Owen Daniels (knee), RB Arian Foster (thumb, back), TE Garrett Graham (hip, groin), RB Greg Jones (foot, groin), CB Johnathan Joseph (not injury related), CB Brice McCain (knee), C Chris Myers (biceps), T Derek Newton (knee), S Eddie Pleasant (hamstring), WR DeVier Posey (achilles), S Ed Reed (hip, abdomen), LB Darryl Sharpton (foot, hip), GWade Smith (knee), RB Ben Tate (shoulder), and DE J.J. Watt (groin, nose) are listed as probable.

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

The NFL revealed its complete 272-game 2022 regular-season schedule on Thursday at 5:00 p.m. PT. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on Thursday, September 8, culminating with Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The San Francisco 49ers open their season on the road against the Chicago Bears. Their first home game comes during Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners' bye is during Week 9. They are currently scheduled to participate in five prime-time matchups this year. San Francisco's opponents combined for a 154-135 record last season. The .533 winning percentage by opponents makes the 49ers' schedule tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the fifth toughest in the NFL, based on last year's results, and



Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

By Bob Heyrman
May 8

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on



Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

By Rohan Chakravarthi
May 9

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early
