The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Houston Texans by a score of 34-3. The win improves the 49ers' record to 3-2 and gives them a two-game winning streak.

The 49ers' defense played very well, forcing four turnovers and keeping the Texans out of the end zone. Those turnovers were turned into 24 points by the 49ers.

Frank Gore and company had the 49ers' ground game on track. The 49ers rushed for 177 yards on 36 carries, a 4.9 yards-per-carry average. Gore led the way with 81 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown.

It's very tough to be critical when you win a game 34-3. However, there were some areas that need to be improved. It will be up to the 49ers and their coaching staff to make those improvements, as the team prepares for their next opponent, the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cardinals and 49ers have identical 3-2 records. Although the 49ers are the much better team on paper, football is not played on paper. The 49ers still must play the game with focus and intensity.

Not to nitpick too much, but let's look at five areas the 49ers need to improve on, as the season moves forward.
