SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Tremaine Brock returned an interception for a touchdown on the game's third play Sunday and the San Francisco 49ers rolled to a 34-3 victory over Houston.

Brock picked off the Texans' Matt Schaub and ran 18 yards for a quick 7-0 lead and the 49ers (3-2) went on to score 14 more points off Houston turnovers, winning a second straight following two consecutive losses.

Colin Kaepernick needed to complete only 6-of-15 passes for 113 yards with a 64-yard touchdown pass to Vernon Davis to secure the victory.

Frank Gore carried much of the offensive burden for San Francisco, gaining 81 yards with a score on 17 carries.

Schaub was picked off three times in all, going 19-of-35 for 173 passing yards before being replaced by T.J. Yates late in the contest for the Texans (2-3).

Arian Foster picked up 98 rushing yards on 21 attempts for Houston.
