San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has not yet decided who will be his starting quarterback.
He has to choose between Alex Smith and rookie Colin Kaepernick.
Smith, who started the year with a 2-for-7 performance and 10 yards in the team's preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints, bounced back with a solid performance against the Oakland Raiders in the second preseason game.
He threw for 126 yards and was 8-for-13 with one interception in the team’s 17-3 win in the “Battle of the Bay."
Kaepernick’s situation is quite similar. After a horrific performance against the Saints, in which he threw two interceptions and had a passer rating of 27.6, he showed patience and accuracy against the Raiders, going 6-for-8 for 75 yards.
Saturday’s game against the Houston Texans provides another opportunity to get some separation in an otherwise close quarterback race.
