In a game that quickly spiraled out of control for the visiting Houston Texans , the San Francisco 49ers were able to pounce and finally string together their first back-to-back wins of the 2013 season.
The 34-3 win also moved San Francisco above .500 for the first time this season.
In Week 5, Matt Schaub and the Texans showed up at Candlestick Park only to get punched in the mouth and sent home shaking.
It was a fairly humiliating display by the reigning AFC South champs. Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers beat them up with a one-dimensional attack that predominantly featured Frank Gore and a defensive unit that was largely made of up reserve players.
Moreover, the performances by particular 49ers were very much "in your face." The Niners defense has taken next-man-up attitude and have thrived despite the absence of such key personnel like Aldon Smith and Patrick Willis.
