Colts Vs. Bucs Score Non-Update: Josh Freeman Just Misses TD Strike

It appeared that Arrelious Benn had scored the first touchdown of this Colts vs. Bucs game on Monday Night Football. The Buccaneers wide receiver eluded several would-be Indy tacklers for  a long TD strike from Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman. But the score was erased when it was ruled that Benn had stepped out of bounds prior to catching the pass. The score remained Colts 3, Bucs 0. 

The animated gif below confirms the official's ruling:

The score might not count, but the play is definitely worth watching in full. The main takeaway: how the heck did the Colts not manage to wrap Benn up before he got into the end zone. See for yourself:
