Trindon Holliday Impresses In Texans' Victory Over 49ers

Wide receiver Trindon Holliday shined in the Texans preseason match-up with the 49ers. Holliday returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown and totaled 182 total yards gained off punts and kickoffs. That score helped Houston top the 49ers 20-9 in both teams' second preseason game.

Coach Gary Kubiak cited blocking as the main reason for the success of the return game.

“We’re much better with our up-front guys in our kick return,’’ Kubiak said.

However, not all went well for Holliday. On one punt return, he failed to call for a fair catch at the necessary time, increasing the possibility of injury in a preseason game.

The Texans will travel to New Orleans for a Saturday matchup with the Saints. This will be the teams' third of four games this preseason.

Texans Vs. 49ers Final Score: Houston Wins Easy Over San Francisco, 20-9

The Houston Texans beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-9 on Saturday Night at Reliant Stadium.

Matt Schaub and Arian Foster were both sharp, with Schaub going 11-for-14 for 128 yards and a touchdown in the first half and Foster adding 46 yards on 10 carries, but the Texans offense would struggle for most of the game without Schaub under center.

The Texans would cap an 80-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter when Schaub found receiver Lestar Jean in the end zone, giving the home team a 10-6 lead and the team's lone offensive touchdown of the game.

Both teams would trade field goals in the third quarter before Trindon Holliday would put the game away in the fourth quarter with an electrifying 87-yard punt return, giving the Texans a 20-9 lead with 10:55 remaining in the game.

Case Keenum, playing in his hometown, would go just 1-for-3 for 30 yards in limited action.
