The Colts hold a 26-19 all-time series lead, with Indianapolis winning the last four games, the most recent of which was a 26-23 overtime victory at home on October 8, 2017.
Ahead of the Colts’ four-game winning streak, the 49ers beat the Colts seven times in eight games.

It looks like Jimmy Garoppolo is returning to the 49ers quarterback, replacing rookie Trey Lance.
Garoppolo suffered a calf injury in early October and missed the last six quarters, but has been in training this week and coach Kyle Shanahan has said he’s optimistic Garoppolo will play. Lance, the third overall pick for North Dakota State in April, sprained his knee in Sunday’s game and his status is unknown for the Colts game.
In his first NFL start on Sunday against Arizona, Lance was 15 for 29 passes for 192 yards and an interception. Lance also ran 89 yards on 16 attempts, the highest by a 49ers quarterback in a game since Colin Kaepernick rushed for 113 yards on 10 carries against the Dolphins in 2016.
Garoppolo has missed 24 of 53 starts since the 49ers made him the league’s highest-paid player heading into the 2018 season.

âI like the Colts here. Carson Wentz is playing well,â said Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports. âHe now has several games without interceptions and three touchdowns. Protection has also improved and Jonathan Taylor is a star.
“The Colts are healthier and Wentz is getting more comfortable. He plays very smart football and limits turnovers under Frank Reich. By the way, they did the same together in Philly.”
The Colts have averaged 18.7 points per game in their first three games and 27.7 points in their last three games.
Turnover could be a key in this game. The Colts forced 12 turnovers, the fourth best in the NFL. The 49ers forced two turnovers, 31st in the NFL.
