Marlon Mack scores 22-yard touchdown vs. 49ers

Could Week 5 be the beginning of the end for the Indianapolis Colts this season?
Three plays later, Prescott picked his way through the Green Bay secondary to put the Cowboys ahead 31-28 with 1:13 remaining. He also hesitated on several throws, particularly the interception in overtime.
Running backs - Thumbs up. And rookie Marlon Mack capped a monster day with the biggest run of his fledgling career. Hyde is averaging 80.3 rushing yards per game, the most he has ever averaged in his career. Mack carried the ball 9 times for 91 yards, and 1 touchdown. Brissett does bring some value with his legs and should be able to to extend plays and drives as a result, but against a solid Niners front seven I don't see him having a ton of success in this one. His backup, EJ Manuel, completed 13 of 26 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown.
Hoyer, who had struggled all season, posted huge numbers against the Colts for the second straight year. It was a lightning-fast five-play, 79-yard drive that took just 1:56, and was highlighted by a 51-yard pass from Hoyer to wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to the Indianapolis 8-yard line.
The soft underbelly for the Colts is the interior of their offensive line.
That should provide an energy that has been missing for most of this season. His fellow running back Frank Gore added 48 yards on thirteen carries, moving him into 7th all-time in National Football League career rushing yards. Indianapolis did a nice job of controlling the line of scrimmage for the most part.
First, here's the good news.
Leading 23-9 with nine minutes to play on Sunday, the Colts once again failed to close out a game in an efficient manner. He had five tackles - two for loss - one sack, four quarterback hits, and was pushing his opponent into the backfield throughout the game. They stuffed the 49ers offense holding them to only 66 yards on 22 carries.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was 24 of 37 for 198 yards with a touchdown and an interception while his Rams counterpart Jared Goff completed 22 of 47 passes for 288 yards with two interceptions.
Landry caught his touchdown pass, a 6-yarder, in the end zone on a pass from Jay Cutler as the Dolphins (2-2) won despite a lackluster offensive performance. Vinatieri may be the oldest player in the National Football League, but he still can hit big kicks. Fortunately, they were on the receiving end of a awful 49ers punt to the 50-yard line, so those 30 yards were meaningful. He's also forced two fair catches on punts.
Here are the meaningful takeaways from San Francisco's latest narrow defeat...
Two years after a bungled fake punt, Colts punt returner Quan Bray fielded a ball and threw a lateral to Krishawn Hogan about 35 yards away. The lateral was very almost intercepted.
Safety Eric Reid is still out with a knee injury. He did not return. It would behoove the Colts to seize the moment and set the tone, because they've shown absolutely no ability to play well when the pressure mounts in the second half.
- Colts rookie cornerback Nate Hairston has 2.0 sacks, tied for the most among defensive backs this season. Brissett will be without his favorite passing target, Jack Doyle as well, who is still in the concussion protocol. They've dropped the last four by a combined 11 points, and afterward coach Kyle Shanahan said he's both encouraged by his players' fight as well as frustrated that they don't seize the opportunities at hand. Indianapolis leads the series, 25-18.
