SAN FRANCISCO -- Jim Harbaugh's former quarterback outplayed his current one, hands down. Andrew Luck threw for 164 yards and ran for a 6 - yard touchdown while facing college coach Jim Harbaugh for the first time and the Indianapolis Colts defeated the San Francisco 49'ers 27 - 7 on Sunday.
Trent Richardson scored a 1 - yard touchdown on his first carry in his Colts debut after being acquired on Wednesday from the Browns. He was drafted two spots behind top pick Luck at number three last year.
Ahmad Bradshaw added a 1 - yard touchdown run in the final minutes, and Adam Vinatieri kicked a pair of field goals before missing a 51 - yarder early in the fourth. But, Luck came through again to give Indianapolis more opportunities and help the Colts improve to 2 - 1.
It was Colin Kaepernick's his first home loss at Candlestick Park as a starter.
