    REGULAR SEASON WEEK 3 INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (1-1) vs. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (1-1) 4:25 P.M. EDT | SUNDAY, SEPT. 22, 2013 | CANDLESTICK PARK

    The Indianapolis Colts (1-1) will fly to the West Coast for their first road game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers (1- 1) on Sunday at Candlestick Park. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. EDT on CBS. The Colts suffered their first loss of the year last week, falling to the Miami Dolphins, 24- 20. The game broke the Colts’ streak of nine consecutive victories in games decided by one possession-or-less. Indianapolis will now look to bounce back and improve upon its 5- 0 record in games following a loss under Head Coach Chuck Pagano (2012-13).

    Offensively against Miami, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton posted his sixth career 100-yard receiving performance after catching six passes for a game-high 124 yards. Tight end Coby Fleener also had a solid performance with four receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown as he assumed the starting role with Dwayne Allen out with an injury. On defense, inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman and outside line- backer Robert Mathis each recorded 2.0 sacks. It marked Freeman’s first career multi-sack effort, while Mathis tallied his 21st such game. The 49ers also lost last week by a 29-3 margin to the Seattle Sea- hawks at CenturyLink Field. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick was held to a career-low 20.1 passer rating after throwing a career-high three interceptions in the game. On the ground though, he ran for a career-high 87 yards on nine rushing attempts.
