This Week 5 matchup features the winless 49ers traveling to face the Colts.
The 49ers come in off of an overtime loss to the Cardinals, while Indy was handled easily by the Seahawks on Sunday night football.
The last time the 49ers and the Colts matched up was in 2013 when the Colts came out ahead 27-7.
San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers offense has struggled all season long, and their week 4 matchup against division rivals the Cardinals showed how far the offense has to go to make strides in the NFC west.
Brian Hoyer was largely ineffective for the day, going 24/49 for 234 yards with an interception. I didn’t expect him to have a good game against two of the best corners in the NFL, but completing under 50% of will not get them any victories in the near future.
Facing a Colts secondary that did a pretty good job against the Seahawks, look for Hoyer to put in another subpar performance.
The offensive line couldn’t get the ground game going, as Carlos Hyde ran it 16 times for just 68 yards and was held out of the end zone. Facing a very talented defense I don’t think Hyde will crack 75 yards for the second straight game.
The 49ers defense doesn’t have the same level of playmakers in years past, but did a good job against a Cardinals offense with weapons at every skill position.
The passing numbers by Carson Palmer were inflated, as he threw for 357 yards on 33-51 passing but averaged just 7 yards per passing attempt.
The Colts didn’t show much fight in the Sunday night loss to Seattle, and seemed to lose any momentum they had in the second half.
Jacoby Brissett struggled for much of the game, going 16-29 for 157 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
Brissett has shown flashes of great play this season, but is still inconsistent as a young passer, look for him to throw for under 200 yards and two interceptions in a poor effort.
The Colts running game didn’t do much against the stout Seahawks defense. Frank Gore was held in check running the ball 12 times for 46 yards. If the Colts are going to have any chance at winning this game Gore will need to get at least 20 touches.
T.Y. Hilton was shut down by the Seattle secondary after torching them for over 150 yards in last year’s meeting, I expect a bounce back performance from him and he should grab 5 passes for over 80 yards.
The Colts defense was great in the first hold, slowing down Russell Wilson and keeping the Seahawks to just 10 points.
The rails came off in the third quarter as they gave up 2 rushing touchdowns and then 2 passing touchdowns in the fourth.
