The San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans square off Saturday evening in a week three preseason contest at Candlestick Park. While the Texans are looking to improve to 3-0, the 49ers will likely give some of their backups some playing time against the Texans first units. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is likely hoping they're far enough along where the team can still have a shot at winning the game. However, more than anything it is simply to see where they are truly at with one preseason game remaining.
Preseason records can be fairly meaningless as last year's 4-0 San Francisco 49ers will tell anybody. Rather, Saturday's dress rehearsal is a chance to see where the team is at as they get ready for the regular season. A win would be great, but the team will be looking for some cohesion on offense and defense, and of course to avoid significant injuries (fingers crossed, knock on wood!).
