San Francisco 49ers, Jimmy Garoppolo top Houston Texans for second straight win

Garoppolo engineered a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter last week at Chicago. The third drive in that sequence was particularly impressive, with the 49ers covering 62 yards in six plays and 54 seconds and Gould nailing a 35-yard field goal as the first half expired. It led to the tight end's own touchdown catch at the end of the drive. Hyde had a 27-yard run.

Hopkins had 149 yards receiving and two touchdowns, but lost a fumble in the fourth quarter with the Texans down by 7. He ripped off a 31-yard run before halftime that helped the 49ers get into field-goal range.

Houston may turn to a new kicker this week after Ka'imi Fairbairn struggled again.

Savage had been benched earlier in the season in favor of Watson and has been 1-5 in his starts during the 2017 season.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20-of-33 passes for 334 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Texans. Johnson was observed spiking his helmet on the sideline after getting beaten for the touchdown.

The San Francisco 49ers won their second-straight game and grabbed their third victory of the season after topping the Houston Texans, 26-16, in Week 14.

Texans starting quarterback Tom Savage went to the locker room to be evaluated for an injury and was replaced by backup T.J. Yates. His response indicates the team's designated spotter pulled Savage for further evaluation right away.

The Texans quarterback was hit by 49ers linebacker Elvis Dumervil on a third-down pass during the second quarter at NRG Stadium.

A San Francisco defensive line that will be refreshed having played just 37 snaps against the Bears should be relishing facing a Texans offensive line that has given up 38 sacks and is ranked No. 27 in the league in pass protection by Football Outsiders.
