San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Houston, we have a problem.
Matt Schaub became the first quarterback since the AFL-NFL merger to throw a
pick-six in four straight games, as the Texans suffered a 34-3 loss to the San
Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.
Schaub became the topic of debate in Houston following last week's overtime
loss to the Seattle Seahawks. With 2:40 left in regulation, Richard Sherman
picked off Schaub and raced 58 yards the other way to tie the game at 20.
On Sunday, Schaub completed just 19-of-35 passes for 173 yards and three
interceptions. Schaub has thrown six picks during Houston's three-game losing
T.J. Yates took over in the fourth quarter and connected on 3-of-5 passes for
15 yards for the Texans (2-3).
San Francisco cornerback Tramaine Brock had two interceptions and returned one
for a touchdown. Defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie had the other interception.
Colin Kaepernick completed 6-of-15 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown for
the 49ers (3-2), who have won two in a row.
Frank Gore carried the ball 17 times for 81 yards and a score, while Vernon
Davis caught three passes for 88 yards and a touchdown.
