Colts vs. 49ers: Top Storylines Heading into Week 3 in San Francisco

As most predicted, quarterback Andrew Luck has had an incredible beginning to his NFL career. You can rattle off the stats like passing yardage, touchdowns, fourth-quarter comebacks and such, but perhaps the most remarkable thing he did was turn a 2-14 team in an 11-5 playoff contender.

Since his arrival, the Indianapolis Colts have been in every ballgame.

This weekend will bring about another challenge, as the prodigal son returns to the Bay Area to take on his former coach in Jim Harbaugh and the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park.

After a beatdown last week, the 49ers (1-1) are disgruntled, eager and almost sure to be ill-tempered come kickoff on Sunday. It is bad timing for Luck and the Colts, which San Francisco is almost sure to use as a whipping post. Even though it is only Week 3, this team will be fired up, knowing it needs a statement game.

Considering all the interacting elements and news since Week 2, here are the top storylines for the 49ers as they prepare to host the Colts.
