Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at Houston Texans

Aug 28, 2014 at 12:01 AM--




The Houston Texans will host the San Francisco 49ers today at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

Last week, the 49ers (1-2) beat the San Diego Chargers 21-7 at Levi's Stadium. The Texans (2-1) beat the Denver Broncos 18-17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.


While Texans starting quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick, will get the night off, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has already said that quarterback Colin Kaepernick will play in the game. However, his playing time will be limited. The starting offense has struggled during the preseason. This will be their last chance to get some playing time in prior to the regular season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 7.

Following the 49ers' win against the Chargers on Sunday, Kaepernick was asked about the offense's struggles. He responded by saying "Well, it's the preseason. We're worried about the games that count."

It will also be the last chance for players like running back Glenn Winston to show the 49ers -- and perhaps other teams -- why he deserves to be on an NFL roster. On Sunday, he led the 49ers running backs with 8 carries for 58 yards (7.2 average) and a touchdown.


The game kicks off at 5:00 PM PT and, as usual, you can visit 49erswebzone.com for the latest news and updates during and after the game, including a live blog by writer Jack Hammer.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

By Rohan Chakravarthi

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where
