  • 49ers: Live Week 14 thread versus the Texans

That scoring pass snapped a 16-16 tie and helped lift the 49ers (3-10) to their second consecutive road triumph.

And once Garoppolo got rolling, so too did the 49ers. "He went back in the game".

Savage took a hit near the end zone on a third down play in the second quarter and could be seen shaking somewhat after the hit.

That was the first of five consecutive possessions that ended with a score for the 49ers. Garoppolo had 293 yards a week earlier in Chicago.

Lamar Miller will also hope he can end the recent resurgence of the 49ers' run defense, which has given up just 152 yards in the last two weeks. Savage could be seen arguing with the team official and the Texans' trainer before being taken to the locker rooom.

"That was a tough group", Garoppolo said. "I don't direct that at all", he said. The latter gave Houston a 16-13 lead in the third quarter. Garoppolo finished the game with 334 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

DeAndre Hopkins doesn't care who the Texans' quarterback is. The 49ers committed to bracketing him all over the field and effectively shut down the Texans offense down the stretch.

It's unclear what exactly happened to Savage, but the quarterback did what several believe to be the "fencing response", which is common in combat athletes directly after a knockout. "They were doing everything they could to put two and sometimes three guys over in his area". He's good with whoever is throwing him the ball.

Marquise Goodwin recorded six receptions for 106 yards for the 49ers. Completions of 29 and 31 yards to Kyle Juszczyk set up San Francisco's first touchdown. 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.

INJURIES: Houston offensive tackle Kendall Lamm sustained a concussion in the first quarter.

Next up for Garoppolo are the Houston Texans, who have lost their past two games. Savage suffered a concussion during the game. Hopkins caught 11 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns.
