Colts Escape With Win To Cap Off Peyton Manning's Special Weekend

09 October 2017

Former Indiana governor Pence, who was at the Lucas Oil Stadium to watch a jersey retirement ceremony for Colts great Peyton Manning, walked out after several 49ers players took the knee during the national anthem as part of ongoing protests against perceived racial injustice. The golden leg of Adam Vinatieri saved the Colts in overtime.

- San Francisco is allowing teams to start on their own 31.4 yard line on average this season, the second worst in the league.

Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall both sustained ankle injuries in the second quarter, and Dwayne Harris broke his foot in the third quarter. It was all knotted up at 6-6 at halftime. Jacoby Brissett must show up for both halves of the football game.

The 49ers pulled even with 20 seconds left in regulation when rookie tight end George Kittle caught a 5-yard, fourth-and-goal touchdown pass. Vinatieri came on and nailed his third field goal of the day, this time from 38 yards out, to put Indianapolis back on top, 9-6. Donte Moncrief came through with several clutch receptions on the final drive in overtime.

Wales to perform special version of national anthem vs Ireland tomorrow night
Wales is ranked second in Group D, a point behind group leaders Serbia , while Georgia is fifth with five points. Tom Lawrence's early second-half strike was enough for Wales to secure a crucial 1-0 win over Georgia .

Shanahan and new general manager John Lynch signed matching six-year contracts when they were hired in the offseason, making 2017 the start of an organization-wide reconstruction project. Winning on Sunday required the Colts to find their offensive mojo at the intermission.

Perhaps the biggest bright spot for the Indianapolis offense was the rise of rookie running back, Marlon Mack.

Most of the 49ers' games have looked the same this year. Mack complements those two because he's more inclined to get to the edge and turn on his speed. Having Ryan Kelly back certainly helped stabilize the running game.

The Colts need to put on a show all 70,000 in attendance because it seems feasible not to have a packed house the rest of the season. It was a 12-play, 65-yard opening drive for the 49ers. Indianapolis has lost to the Los Angeles Rams, the Arizona Cardinals in overtime and the Seattle Seahawks so far this season. Brian Hoyer passed for 353 yards and 2 touchdowns. The 49ers, with one of the youngest defenses in the National Football League, are tied for sixth in the National Football League in fewest yards per play allowed at 4.9.

We screwed up, we'll get them Sunday. "The good news is we gave ourselves a cushion just in case we had to use a Mulligan". The preliminary list for this race had 40 drivers in the running and there are in fact 40 spots on the starting grid.

The Colts may have the better record, but that only came as a result of them playing the awful Cleveland Browns. They kicked a 46-yard field goal on the sixth.

For the 27th time in what certainly is a Hall-of-Fame career, Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri was dead-solid ideal on a game-winning field goal on Sunday. Rigoberto Sanchez had another solid day punting, and kicking the ball off. Sanchez punted the ball 4 times for 191 yards, the longest being 56 yards. The lines of demarcation were about the same on all four.

The test Sunday will be to succeed without two of their key special-teams performers: safety Adrian Colbert and linebacker Dekoda Watson, who won't be available because of injury.

I don't point fingers, if things have gone my way, things haven't gone my way. "I felt a lot of calls were questionable". DeVante Parker suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return. "I just kept playing", Jones said.
