"Houston’s defense scored an early touchdown, but 13 unanswered points by the 49ers would leave the Texans trailing until the mid-third quarter. Tom Savage led the offense on three scoring drives, including a pair of touchdown passes to tight end Stephen Anderson and running back Akeem Hunt.Brock Osweiler and starters DeAndre Hopkins and Lamar Miller played just three offensive series before exiting the game. Osweiler was 4-of-7 for 27 yards with no touchdowns, no turnovers and a 65.8 passer rating."
Here we go again with Texans’ Jadeveon Clowney – by Brian T. Smith, Houston Chronicle
"We didn’t even make it to the first preseason game. Of course. I mean, that’s how it goes, right? That’s everything we’ve come to expect from the Texan who was supposed to be a once-in-a-generation defender. When Bill O’Brien’s crew opens its 2016 preseason slate Sunday at San Francisco and every Texans-obsessed soul in this city begins to put their oft-broken heart in Brock Osweiler’s hands, guess who’s not scheduled to take the field? Come on. This is an easy one. You already know the answer. That’s right: Jadeveon Clowney."

"Quarterbacks | C-plus"
"Brock Osweiler (4-of-7 for 27 yards) had a rough debut, but it was a vanilla scheme and only four series. Tom Savage (14-of-24 for 168 yards), who’s playing in this system for a third season, threw two touchdown passes and led three scoring drives."
