The San Francisco 49ers won their second-straight game and grabbed their third victory of the season after topping the Houston Texans, 26-16, in Week 14. His 41-yard field goal with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter put the 49ers up two scores.

Upon entering the game, Yates threw a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins to narrow the gap against the 49ers.

Garoppolo, who arrived in Santa Clara on October 31 after a trade with the New England Patriots, has the most yards passing for any 49ers quarterback making his first two starts since the National Football League merger in 1970. Savage attempted two more passes, both incomplete, in a three-and-out.

Garoppolo went 20-for-33 passing with 334 yards to go along with a touchdown and an interception. When Savage returned to the game moments later, it drew an angry response from the founding CEO of Concussion Legacy Foundation on Twitter.
