Colts vs. 49ers: Takeaways from Indianapolis' 27-7 Win over San Francisco

In what was one of the most surprising results of an already crazy 2013 season, the Indianapolis Colts traveled to San Francisco on Sunday to play the 49ers and came away with a 27-7 win. 

The Colts were long shots prior to kickoff, as Vegas Insider had San Francisco as the 10.5-point favorite. Only Jacksonville was a bigger underdog, but the Colts managed to shut down what was thought to be an explosive 49er offense with stifling secondary play and an effective four-man pass rush. 

Offensively, the team continued to run with its ground-and-pound offense. Ahmad Bradshaw and Donald Brown both had successful days running the ball, finishing with 120 combined yards on 22 carriesan average of 5.45 yards per carry. 

When the offensive line plays like it did today alongside a dominant defense, the Colts are incredibly difficult to beat.

The Colts still have philosophical questions to resolve, but this was a fantastic win for a team reeling after a second-half collapse last week.
