Tom Savage Continued To Play After Distressing Hit

Monday, 11 Dec, 2017

Jimmy Garoppolo has now started four National Football League games and his teams have won all four of them. "We evaluated him. At that time, made the determination to put him, that he was - not me, obviously the evaluators made the determination to put him back in the game".

Here are the top takeaways from the road win against the Texans. Yates passed for 175 yards on 14-of-26 attempts. Fans on social media implored the quarterback to remain out of the game.

Savage was hit by 49ers defensive end while throwing an incomplete pass on third down.

Garoppolo teamed up with tight end Garrett Celek late in the third quarter to break a 16-16 tie.

Garoppolo was most impressive when he was under pressure.

Garoppolo went 20-for-33 passing with 334 yards to go along with a touchdown and an interception.

While the Texans don't have any postseason hopes this season, don't tell that to Clowney who has been playing as hard as could be expected if Houston was competing for a berth in the Super Bowl. Juszczyk's 64 yards receiving were a career high.

Hopkins caught 10 passes for 144 yards with two touchdowns while Johnson was in the game. He looked to have trouble getting up and looked out of sorts coming off the field. They have lost six players to concussions the past two weeks.

The 49ers have their quarterback. DeForest Buckner, Eli Harold and K'Waun Williams accounted for the sacks.

Colbert forced a fumble of DeAndre Hopkins and Lynch recovered. He missed two field goals last week and missed another field goal and an extra point Sunday. He was a disruptive force in the backfield throughout.
