San Francisco 49'ers Rout Houston Texans In Preseason Finale

The Houston Texans came into this game with a few objectives; try and find their #2 quarterback and starting kicker, and suffer no injuries.

Coming into the game Case Keenum was the #2 QB, but Tom Savage appeared ready to potentially snatch it away. With potential for the QB depth chart to change, you’d think both quarterback would show up ready to play. That’s exactly what didn’t happen.

Keenum was pretty much terrible most of the night. Made some plays, but again, missed open receivers and threw an interception, finishing the night completing just 8-of-17 passes for 70 yards. Though Savage completed 8-of-12 passes, he only threw for 43 yards, and chipped in with an interception of his own as well. Neither quarterback did anything to “earn” the #2 QB spot.

In the kicking battle, Chris Boswell hit a 41-yard FG and Randy Bullock hit a 52-yard FG. It sounds like Bullock will start the year as the Texans kicker.

In a nutshell, the game was terrible for the Texans. They lost 40-13, and didn’t score a single offensive touchdown. Their offense was horrendous (somewhat expected), defense was pretty bad, and the special teams unit looked like they were playing at half speed at times.

There’s not much else to say about the game. The Texans were up 6-0 in the second quarter, but didn’t score on offense again. Their only other score was an Andre Hal 77-yard pick six.

So who played poorly? Not to mention any names but Eddie Pleasant, Xavier Su’a-Filo (played LT, not worried), anyone under center…the list goes on and on and on.

We’ll just leave the recap at that. They stunk. Preseason game four. Not a big deal.

No big injuries though. Wohoo!

We just need the regular season to get here already!
