We were able to play at a pretty good tempo and get in the end zone so that was good.”It was a much lengthier outing than the preseason opener in Kansas City, when Watson attempted just one pass in his return to game action after missing the second half of his rookie season with a torn ACL.“I felt good just to be in a game,” Watson said. “Try to get my feet wet.

The first came on a punt return and was charged to Raheem Mostert and the second came against Jeremiah Attaochu while rushing the passer.PENALTIES GALORE“Extremely disappointing. There were way too many penalties. We’ll look at each one. Some you can control and some you can’t, but they really hurt us. They were unacceptable.” — Shanahan on San Francisco’s 15 penalties for 140 yardsHE SAID IT“I feel more comfortable just being out there with the guys longer. Last season, I came off the streets. This year, we have time to work on plays, work on being better.” –Texans WR Bruce EllingtonNEXT UPThe 49ers (1-1) return to action on Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Colts.The Texans (2-0) visit the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, Aug. 25.
