Default Official Texans @ 49ers Game Thread, 1/2/2022

The 4-11 Houston Texans head out to San Francisco this Sunday to play the 8-7 49ers in an afternoon game. The Texans are coming off a 41-29 home win over the Chargers, the 49ers are coming off a 20-17 road loss to the Titans on the last TNF game. They have a little extra prep time.

49'er QB Jimmy Garoppolo is nursing a sore thumb but will probably play. If he can't go or gets injured, QB duties fall to Trey Lance a rookie from North Dakota St. Garoppolo has thrown for 3494 yards, 8.5 avg, 253.1 yds/game, 19 TDs, 10 INTs with a 99.6 rating. Top RB for the 49'ers is Elijah Mitchell (759 yds, 4.6 avg.). Top WR is Deebo Samuel with 1247 yards, 17.8 avg. TE George Kittle is second on the list with 871 yards, 13.4 avg. The 49'er defense is 7th in the league vs. the pass and 11th vs. the run (yds/game).

Both teams are 7-8 ATS. It will be interesting to see if the Texans can keep their mojo going against a pretty good defense on the road. In the meantime, I say:
