First Quarter Recap

The 49ers won the toss and deferred to the second half.

Even with a quiet T.Y. Hilton on the opening drive, the Colts found some early points. Adam Vinatieri’s 52-yard-field goal capped an 11-play series for the Colts.

San Francisco also notched a field goal on their opening possession. Behind Pierre Garcon catching five balls on the first drive, the 49ers moved quickly. A 28-yard field goal from Robbie Gould tied the score at the 2:37 mark of the first quarter.

The first quarter came to a close with the Colts facing a 3rd-and-7.

At the end of the first quarter, the Colts and 49ers were tied at 3.


Second Quarter Recap

Pressure on Jacoby Brissett led to a punt, which rookie punter Rigoberto Sanchez successfully booted down to the eight-yard line.

The 49ers went three-and-out but did flip field position with a punt down to the Indy 26-yard line.

A massive drop from T.Y. Hilton led to the Colts then going three-and-out. Hilton’s drop came on a throw that would have been good for around 50 yards.

For a second straight drive, the 49ers would go three-and-out, giving the Colts nice field position at their own 43-yard line.

But the Colts could not do anything with that field position. Two penalties and a sack on third-and-long cost the Colts a chance at some points. The score was still tied at the midway point of the second quarter.

After a few stagnant drives, the Colts put together another 11-play series. With T.Y. Hilton getting involved, Adam Vinatieri knocked home a 23-yard field goal to give the Colts a 6-3 lead with under a minute remaining in the first half.

San Francisco strung together a very quick scoring drive to end the half, despite having no timeouts. A 43-yard field goal from Robbie Gould ended the first half scoring.

At halftime, the Colts and 49ers were tied at 6.


Third Quarter Recap

The 49ers went three-and-out on their first drive of the second half, as inside linebacker Jeremiah George sacked Brian Hoyer on a 3rd-and-10.

More great field position from the Colts turned into points. A 38-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri allowed the Colts to re-take the lead at 9-6, with 7:47 remaining in the third quarter.

Outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard sacked Brian Hoyer on the next San Fran drive, continuing the dominant defensive performance through two and a half quarters.

Finally, the Colts took full advantage of the strong field position. Behind a Frank Gore screen pass for 26 yards, and Marlon Mack’s legs, the Colts found the end zone. Mack’s 22-yard touchdown run pushed the lead to 16-6 with 3:17 left in the third.

San Francisco was marching in Indy territory when the third quarter ended.

At the end of the third quarter, the Colts led the 49ers 16-6.


Fourth Quarter Recap

That drive from the 49ers lasted 12 plays with kicker Robbie Gould connecting from 40 yards out. That cut the Indy lead to 16-9 with 13:39 to go in the fourth quarter.

The Colts responded with a big touchdown drive. A 63-yard pass from T.Y. Hilton started things, and Marlon Mack turned a busted 3rd-and-15 play into a first down. Then Jacoby Brissett’s quarterback draw resulted in a three-yard touchdown. The lead was now up to 23-9, at the 9:56 mark of the fourth.

San Francisco answered very quickly. A terrific 51-yard catch from speedster Marquis Goodwin took the 49ers inside the Colts 10-yard line. On a 3rd-and-Goal, the 49ers scored on a shovel pass to fullback Kyle Juszcyzk. The score was now 23-16 with 8 minutes to go.

After an initial first down for the Colts, they would have to punt, giving San Francisco a chance to tie this thing up.

That 14-point lead for the Colts did evaporate. The 49ers went 89 yards in 14 plays, with tight end George Kittle hauling in five-yard touchdown on 4th-and-Goal, with less than 30 seconds to play.

That game went to overtime, tied at 23.


Overtime Recap

The Colts won the toss and elected to receive in the 10-minute overtime period.

It looked like the Colts were going to escape in this one. A 46-yard catch by T.Y. Hilton put the Colts in a 1st-and-Goal situation. But Jacoby Brissett then threw an interception to linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong.

With the Colts losing out on their first possession, San Francisco just needed a field goal for the win. The 49ers got to midfield before a penalty stalled things out and they had to punt with less than four minutes remaining in overtime.

A dazzling third down conversion from Jacoby Brissett to Donte Moncrief, set up the play of overtime. On the very next play, Marlon Mack took off on a 35-yard gain, to put the Colts on the verge of field goal range. Adam Vinatieri would send the home faithful to the exits a few plays later with a 51-yard field goal.

The 26-23, overtime, victory for the Colts put them at 2-3 through the first five weeks of the season.

Next up for the Colts (2-3) is a trip to Nashville, to take on the Titans (2-3) On Monday Night Football.
