Aug 15, 2015 at 8:24 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers fell to the Houston Texans 23-10 in their exhibition opener on Saturday night at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

While the 49ers did not come away with the victory, a number of players impressed in the loss. Running back Jarryd Hayne and linebackers Eli Harold and Shayne Skov are just three of those players. Even backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert impressed on his way to a 125.6 QB rating.

What wasn't impressive was the 49ers secondary. For the first time in Houston Texans history, three quarterbacks each finished a single preseason game with a QB rating over 100.

Here are the recaps from numerous 49ers beat writers. More will be added to the list as they come in.

"I also asked the source about the Jets and the Dolphins because they have the most draft capital this year and the next few years. I was told the Jets, 'Eh, probably not.'
