SANTA CLARA — One of the potential problems opposing teams and coaches might have in trying to prepare for the 49ers offense over the next week or two is the limited amount of film they have to look at of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Coach Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans are experiencing that right now.

Naturally, they’re bringing up the film of Garoppolo’s snaps with the 49ers, particularly Sunday’s game against Chicago. But they’re also looking at tape of Garoppolo’s playing time with New England, including the scrimmage between the Texans and Patriots in training camp this summer.

“You have to really focus on what (coach) Kyle (Shanahan’s) doing with him, watching the Chicago game,” O’Brien said Tuesday in a conference call with Bay Area media.

“We’ll just have to go back and watch as much as we can and be ready for his skill-set and what he can do.”

Garoppolo will start again for the 49ers when they travel to Houston to face the Texans looking to win two games in a row for the first time since 2014 when they won three straight from Nov. 9-23 against New Orleans, the New York Giants and Washington.
