HOUSTON -- Remember that note about Matt Schaub and the Texans' play-action passing game?

Well, it was a good one.

Thanks to Hank Gargiulo of ESPN Stats & Information for passing it along.

Schaub's latest touchdown pass, a 42-yarder to a wide-open Owen Daniels, followed a play-action fake that fooled the 49ers. It fooled me, too. I was watching the running back for about three steps before realizing Schaub was standing alone in the backfield, watching Daniels break into the clear.
