49ers Stifled By Luck, Colts

The Indianapolis Colts weren’t expected to beat the San Francisco 49ers, as they were on the road against a fired-up, top-notch squad.

However, they made the 49ers look horrible on Sunday.

Indianapolis shocked the country with a 27-7 win, one that involved the Colts rushing for three touchdowns, controlling the ball and stopping Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick had another horrible game, and he has 49ers fans worried.

Colts fans, on the other hand, are jubilant about the team’s win. The defense dominated, as it got pressure on Kaepernick, intercepted him and missed very few tackles.

The two teams were tied after one quarter, and many were anticipating a great game. However, the 49ers didn’t score again.

Kendall Hunter scored the team’s only touchdown, and he tied the game after new addition Trent Richardson scored for the Colts. However, it was Ahmad Bradshaw who had the best game; he ran for 95 yards and a touchdown.

Luck also ran for a touchdown, as he took a naked bootleg into the end zone on a 3rd-and-3. His six-yard scoring run was followed by a fumble by Kaepernick, which led to Bradshaw’s touchdown.

Cassius Vaughn then sealed the win with an interception, boosting Indianapolis’ defensive stats. The team also had four sacks, with two coming from Robert Mathis. The 49ers had just one, from Justin Smith.

The 49ers now have to win in St. Louis on Thursday night in a game pitting two hungry teams. As for the Colts, they can celebrate their win with another likely win in Jacksonville next week.
