Colts vs. 49ers: Takeaways from Indianapolis’ 27-7 Win over San Francisco
Posted By Kyle J. Rodriguez On September 22, 2013 @ 11:05 pm In Colts News | No Comments
The Colts were long shots prior to kickoff, as Vegas Insider  had San Francisco as the 10.5-point favorite. Only Jacksonville  was a bigger underdog, but the Colts managed to shut down what was thought to be an explosive 49er offense with stifling secondary play and an effective four-man pass rush.
Offensively, the team continued to run with its ground-and-pound offense. Ahmad Bradshaw  and Donald Brown both had successful days running the ball, finishing with 120 combined yards on 22 carries—an average of 5.45 yards per carry.
When the offensive line plays like it did today alongside a dominant defense, the Colts are incredibly difficult to beat.
The Colts still have philosophical questions to resolve, but this was a fantastic win for a team reeling after a second-half collapse  last week.
