Fournette leads Buccaneers with 4 TDs in another big game vs. Colts

Leonard Fournette had four touchdowns and a 28-yard touchdown run with 20 seconds left in Sunday's game, giving the Buccaneers a 38-31 victory over the Colts.

Tom Brady led the Buccaneers (8-3) on the eight-play, 75-yard drive that broke the tie after recovering the ball with 3:29 remaining. Fournette rushed 17 times for 100 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught Brady's only touchdown pass.

The defending Super Bowl champions have won two straight overall, while Brady improved to 16-4 all-time against the Colts in his first appearance with Tampa Bay.

The Colts (6-6) had a chance to force overtime when Isaiah Rodgers returned the ensuing kickoff 71 yards to the Bucs' 32-yard line with 10 seconds left. But Carson Wentz's first-down pass to Jack Doyle fell incomplete and former Colts corner Pierre Desir picked off Wentz near the goal line as time expired.

The difference was turnovers. Tampa Bay turned its first three turnovers into 17 points, two of them taking away scoring opportunities for the Colts.

Indy controlled the first half as they took a 24-14 lead.

Nyheim Hines' blooper

At the key moment of the game, Tampa Bay made it 31-24 with a short field goal after a Nyheim Hines fumble on a punt return and Indy tied it with a 4-yard TD run by Jonathan Taylor with 3:29 remaining.

But that was too long for Brady, who led the Bucs all the way down the field.

The defensive Buccaneers tackle Vita Vea left briefly after losing a tooth and starting cornerback Jamel Dean was knocked out of the game in the first quarter with an injured right shoulder.
