49ers Force OT, But Still Winless After Loss to Colts

The San Francisco 49ers look for their first win of the season as they head into Indianapolis to face off with the Colts in a battle of league doormats.

Because of a freakish schedule, Indianapolis (1-3) will complete its games versus the division in Week 5.

They've fallen by eight points combined over their past three games, all to NFC West rivals, while they wade through a season defined by low expectations. The 49ers were facing a fourth-and-goal from the Colts' 5-yard line with 24 seconds left, down seven.

"You have to just find a way to stop the bleeding". Coach Chuck Pagano has said the little things are hurting the Colts. Indianapolis got a solid half out of the second year QB against the Seahawks, but the wheels fell off in the third quarter. You have to do it for 60 minutes.

Not even a defense that entered the weekend ranked next-to-last in the league could help the 49ers' offense get going on Sunday.

They showed resiliency, again, scoring two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and getting a key play in overtime.

Can Brian Hoyer shine in a prime spot? They held the Panthers to 23, the Seahawks to 12 and the Cardinals to 18 in overtime. He caught five passes for 47 yards. Hoyer has had the two best games of his career in Indianapolis the past two seasons with the Bears and Niners. "When you have the time and you've got guys open, you need to hit them". I know what Bo brings to the table. He says he can still play, he's still having fun, still loves the game and still has the goal "to get that trophy".

In 2016, Armstead led all 3-4 defensive-ends in pass-rush productivity with 21 hurries and three sacks in 168 pass-rush snaps.

The 49ers' struggles under first-year coach Kyle Shanahan continued, as it becomes more and more hard to find a winnable game on the schedule. San Francisco sacked Carson Palmer six times and had 11 tackles for a loss. It will be Gore's first contest against former team.

There's never been any pretense that this season was going to be about wins and losses for the San Francisco 49ers. Indianapolis is yielding an average of 396.2 yards.

The latter game ended with a 19-yard touchdown reception by Larry Fitzgerald with 32 seconds to play.

NOTES: Receiver Marquise Goodwin during practice Thursday was no longer wearing a noncontact jersey, as he did Wednesday, indicating he's progressing through the concussion protocol after leaving the Cardinals game in the first half.

T.Y. Hilton's production as Indianapolis' top receiver is a bit off without Luck throwing him the ball. That may have no bearing on how this game plays out, but the Colts still have had San Francisco's number in recent years. He was on pace to eclipse his career high of 59 catches set last season.

This game could come down to field goals, and two of the best kickers in the game will be showcased. It was nearly a carbon copy of last week's loss to Arizona, right down to the 6-6 halftime score and walk-off points for the opponent in overtime (though this time it was a 51-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri instead of a Larry Fitzgerald touchdown).
