Wentz gives 49ers gift with brutal red-zone turnover originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

A wet and windy day at Levi's Stadium on Sunday made for some wild conditions in the 49ers' Week 7 game against the Indianapolis Colts

The conditions, mixed with some pressure from the 49ers' defensive line, resulted in a brutal turnover for Colts quarterback Carson Wentz in the second quarter. 

While the turnover was ruled an interception in real time, the play was then changed to a fumble.

Pressured by Nick Bosa, Wentz rolled out of the pocket and flicked a the ball to none other than 49ers linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair. This was the second of two turnovers forced by the 49ers' defense on the game so far. The "fumble" from Wentz ended an impressive seven-play, 71-yard drive by the Colts' offense.

When it looked like the 49ers were about to fall behind for the first time Sunday night, the defense came away with a huge turnover. 

The resulting San Francisco drive ended up being a three-and-out, with the 49ers failing to capitalize on the gift they were given.
