Golden Nuggets: Today, the 49ers earn a winning record and never look back

Sunday, October 6, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning. Today, the San Francisco 49ers face an important matchup that could be instrumental in shaping the course of their 2013-14 campaign. They sit at 2-2, and most agree that getting a win over the Houston Texans today will give them exactly the kind of boost they need going forward.

I'm more confident in a win over the Texans than I was about a win over the Rams. Maybe it's due to the 0-1-1 record San Francisco had against their NFC West rivals last season, or perhaps it's due to the poor play of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. Whatever the reason, I'm confident and I don't see the 49ers hitting a losing record or even .500 again this season.

They'll see 3-2 and never look back. Onto your links.
