The Bucs (8-3) were made to work for this high-scoring victory as the Colts racked up a lot of offensive yardage but turnovers were the key as the defense forced both an interception and a fumble to stop key Indianapolis drives. Leonard Fournette became the third Buc to score four TDs in a game including the clinching 28-yarder with 20 seconds remaining.
