It was his 27th career game-winning kick. On the field goal, he moved into second place all-time in NFL history in field goals made with 539. With four attempts, he also tied George Blanda (639) for the third most in NFL history. * Vinatieri gave the Colts a 3-0 lead with his 52-yard field goal on the team's opening possession of the game. On the kick, he became the third player in NFL history to accumulate 2,400-plus points (Morten Andersen, 2,544 and Gary Anderson 2,434). * Vinatieri added his second field goal from 23 yards in the second quarter and gave the Colts a 9-6 advantage with his 38-yard field goal in the third quarter. * Vinatieri converted two field goals of 50-plus yards in a single game for the third time in his career (2013 at San Diego and 2016 vs. Chicago).

Following Marlon Mack's third quarter rushing touchdown, Indianapolis increased its streak of consecutive games with at least one rushing touchdown to eight. It's the longest streak for the team dating back to Dec. 31, 2006 – Nov. 4, 2007 (nine straight games).

  • Quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed 22-of-34 passes for 314 yards and one interception for an 82.2 passer rating. He also rushed eight times for 14 yards and one touchdown.
    • Brissett threw his longest career pass in the fourth quarter when he found T.Y. Hilton for a 63-yard gain. He then capped the drive with a three-yard rushing touchdown to give the Colts a 23-9 lead in the fourth quarter.
    • Brissett's 20 completions and 314 passing yards were both single-game career highs.

Running back Frank Gore tallied 14 carries for 48 yards and added three catches for 38 yards with a long reception of 26 yards. * * With 14 carries, Gore passed Edgerrin James (3,028) for the seventh most carries in NFL history. * On his first rush of the game, a nine-yard carry, Gore passed Eric Dickerson (13,259) for seventh on the league's all-time rushing yardage list.

Running back Marlon Mack tallied his best rushing performance of the season with nine carries for 91 yards and one touchdown and contributed with one catch for two yards. * * Mack's 22-yard touchdown in the third quarter was the second of his career and gave the Colts a 16-6 lead. * He recorded a 35-yard rush in overtime, which set up the eventual game-winning 51-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri. It was the longest rush of the game from either team. * Mack's 91 rushing yards are the most for a Colts rookie running back since Dec. 16, 2012 when Vick Ballard totaled 105 at Houston.

Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving with seven catches for 177 yards (25.3 avg.). His yardage total is the third highest of any game in his career (regular or postseason) and the second most for a regular season game. * * The 100-yard receiving performance is the 26th of Hilton's career, which ranks third in franchise history.

Three members of the Colts defense shared the team lead in tackles with seven each (Antonio Morrison, Jabaal Sheard and Jon Bostic).

  • Outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard compiled seven tackles (four solo), 1.5 sacks and two tackles for loss.
    • Sheard split a sack with Jeremiah George at the start of the third quarter and added his first full sack of the game when he brought down Brian Hoyer for a nine-yard loss in the third. Both sacks forced 49ers punts. Sheard now has sacks in back-to-back games.

Inside linebacker Jeremiah George recorded three tackles, half a sack and one quarterback hit. * * George's half sack he split with Sheard marked his first career quarterback takedown and forced a San Francisco punt on the play.
