Week 5 NFL preview: Texans vs. 49ers

Week 5's Sunday Night Football broadcast features two division winners in 2012 with two of the best defenses in football. So which team wins? Probably whichever makes fewer mistakes on offense. Matt Ufford previews the game and makes his pick.

The Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers are among the league's more talented teams, but have gotten off to rocky starts in 2013. Matt Schaub has developed a bad case of pick-sixes and has thrown one in three straight games. Colin Kaepernick is having his own struggles this year, but he looked better during last week's mauling of the Rams.
