The Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers duked it out in the pouring rain on Sunday night, the Colts prevailing in a sloppy affair, 30-18.
It moved them to one game below .500 on the season at 3-4 before they face a pivotal AFC South matchup at home against the Tennessee Titans in Week 8.
It took a solid effort in all three phases — offense, defense, and special teams — for the Colts to pull out the victory, but they completely owned the second half to propel them to victory.
Here is how much each Colts player saw the field on Sunday night at Levi's Stadium.
- 68 (100%) — QB Carson Wentz, LT Eric Fisher, LG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly, RT Matt Pryor
- 62 (91%) — WR Michael Pittman Jr.
- 57 (84%) — WR Zach Pascal
- 50 (74%) — TE Jack Doyle
- 47 (69%) — RB Jonathan Taylor
- 44 (65%) — RG Chris Reed
- 43 (63%) — TE Mo Alie-Cox, WR Ashton Dulin
- 24 (35%) — RG Mark Glowinski
- 19 (28%) — RB Nyheim Hines
- 6 (9%) — OL Danny Pinter
- 5 (7%) — TE Kylen Granson
- 4 (6%) — RB Marlon Mack, WR Keke Coutee
Nelson returned to the lineup after missing the previous three games with a high ankle sprain. In that time, Reed filled in for him and was arguably the Colts' best lineman during the duration. Normally all five starting offensive linemen would see 100% of the snaps but the Colts utilized both Glowinski and Reed at right guard on Sunday night like they said they would in the week leading up to the game. The Colts don't tend to do this (especially along the line) unless it allows for the newcomer to potentially earn the primary role. Well, Reed outsnapped Glowinski by 20 on Sunday.
With wide receiver Parris Campbell's long-lasting foot injury, it looks like we found who the next man up will be as Dulin played well over half the snaps. Coutee also got called up from the practice squad and played a little bit.
- 56 (100%) — LB Darius Leonard, LB Bobby Okereke, CB Kenny Moore II, S Khari Willis
- 48 (86%) — CB Xavier Rhodes
- 47 (84%) — DT DeForest Buckner, DE Al-Quadin Muhammad
- 44 (79%) — S Andrew Sendejo
- 41 (73%) — DE Kwity Paye
- 33 (59%) — DE Tyquan Lewis
- 31 (55%) — CB Isaiah Rodgers
- 29 (52%) — DT Grover Stewart
- 17 (30%) — LB Zaire Franklin
- 12 (21%) — S George Odum
- 9 (16%) — DE Isaac Rochell, DT Taylor Stallworth, DT Antwaun Woods
- 8 (14%) — LB E.J. Speed, CB Anthony Chesley
Facing incredibly wet conditions, the Colts utilized a heavier personnel grouping against San Francisco. For example, SAM linebacker Franklin saw his second-highest defensive snap count of the season. Sendejo also got the start at free safety in Julian Blackmon's absence although he is more of a box safety that would play the run. The Colts then went to Odum afterward which makes more sense in the grand scheme. Chesley was able to see some playing time with Rhodes a little banged up, and Speed also saw action late with the Colts operating with a multi-score lead.
- 24 (86%) — Matthew Adams, George Odum, Zaire Franklin
- 21 (75%) — E.J. Speed
- 19 (68%) — Ashton Dulin
- 17 (61%) — Anthony Chesley
- 16 (57%) — Rigoberto Sanchez
- 14 (50%) — Khari Willis
- 13 (46%) — Isaiah Rodgers, Isaac Rochell
- 11 (39%) — Bobby Okereke
- 10 (36%) — Luke Rhodes, Josh Jones, Kenny Moore II
- 7 (25%) — Mo Alie-Cox, DeForest Buckner, Grover Stewart
- 6 (21%) — Andrew Sendejo
- 5 (18%) — Zach Pascal, Kylen Granson
- 4 (14%) — Michael Badgley, Julién Davenport, Ben Banogu, BoPete Keyes, Eric Fisher, Matt Pryor, Nyheim Hines, Danny Pinter
- 3 (11%) — Jack Doyle, Mark Glowinski, Darius Leonard, Taylor Stallworth
