Garoppolo leads 49ers to 26-16 win over Texans

Garoppolo leads 49ers to 26-16 win over Texans

Texans quarterback Tom Savage briefly returned to Sunday's game after taking a vicious hit from 49ers defensive end Elvis Dumervil in the second quarter.

Yates engineered consecutive scoring drives upon entering the game, capping both with touchdown passes to receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

NOTES: Texans LT Kendall Lamm suffered a concussion in the first quarter and did not return.




The Houston Texans host the San Francisco 49ers in a Week 14 clash between two teams who are looking to the future. Garoppolo connected with Aldrick Robinson for 18 yards to set up Robbie Gould for a 35-yard field goal.

Rookie Deshaun Watson took over at halftime of Houston's season-opener after Savage struggled and made the offense one of the NFL's most potent in six starts, but he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in practice on November 2. But Garoppolo stood firm against that pressure, overcoming an early interception and completing 20-of-33 pass attempts. In the third quarter, the Texans announced that Savage had a concussion and would be out for the remainder of the game.

Savage was replaced by T.J. Yates, who led the Texans to a touchdown on his first drive under center, but Houston would in the end fall to the 49ers by a final score of 26-16. Foster remained down for a minute before jogging off the field. The Texans punted on the following play. Veteran guard Zane Beadles started at right tackle. It was the first time the 49ers have won back-to-back games in the same season since November 2014.
