(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - It was an up-and-down game that saw the Indianapolis Colts blow a 14-point lead in the final eight minutes of regulation before surviving in overtime as Adam Vinateri drilled a game-winning 51-yard field goal to lift the Colts past the San Francisco 49ers 26-23.

Vinateri made all four of his field goal attempts and moved to second place on the all-time career list.

Jacoby Brissett threw for 314 yards, rushed for a touchdown and threw an interception while T.Y. Hilton racked up 177 yards on seven catches.

Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 91 yards and a score as the Colts dominated the ground game, out-rushing the 49ers 159-66. Frank Gore moved past Eric Dickerson for seventh on the all-time rushing list.

The Colts move to 2-3 and next visit the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football for their first division game of the season.

At halftime of the Colts game it was Peyton Manning's time to shine as the future Hall of Famer made "One Last Throw" to Reggie Wayne with Jeff Saturday at center and then saw his name go up in the team's Ring of Honor and have his No. 18 jersey retired.

"I came here almost 20 years ago to play quarterback and to try and win a lot of football games," he said during the ceremony. "I thank God every day that I'm an Indianapolis Colt."
