Key: Steve Slaton scored two touchdowns as the Texans took a 21-0 halftime lead, then withstood a rally led by backup quarterback Alex Smith. Eugene Wilson's interception on fourth down halted the 49ers' last-gasp drive. Texans said: "We get down, they get up and they all of a sudden grabbed the momentum of the game. But we made some big plays late . . . so it was a big, big win." -- Gary Kubiak, coach 49ers said: "Starting the second half, down three scores, you're seeing some stagnant looks from the defense, they're not throwing as much at you."
