The Houston Texans take on the San Francisco 49ers and before the season this looked like it could be a potential Super Bowl preview. Both teams have struggled in the first quarter of the season and both sit at 2-2. A win would move either team onto the winning side of .500.
“We’re not where we want to be, but there’s a long, long way to go,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “We’re a very capable football team, but we’ve got to be a more consistent football team.”
The San Francisco 49ers are a little more optimistic heading into this match riding the momentum from their 35-11 win over the St. Louis Rams.
“You want that response,” coach Jim Harbaugh said, via ESPN. “I thought the team stared adversity in the face (with) a lot of grit and determination. The guys played with great energy and great toughness.”
A win over the Texans would really keep that momentum going and help their season get back on track.
