NFL Scores Week 4, Colts Vs. Bucs: LeGarrette Blount, Tampa Top Indy 24-17

For a while there, the Colts looked like a half-decent team — even with Curtis Painter spelling Peyton Manning in his first NFL start. In the end, the Buccaneers stuck around long enough to pull out a win on the legs of LeGarrette Blount. The Bucs running back's found the pylon for the final score of the game and Tampa Bay earned a 24-17 win on Monday Night Football.

With the win, the Bucs move to 3-1, while the Colts remain winless. Below, we recap some highlights from the game.

Offensive Player of the Game: This award goes to Blount, who barreled his way to 127 yards and the game-winning touchdown. This animated gif says it all:

Offensive Player of the Game II: Colts wide receiver Pierre Garcon had just two catches, but they were both long distance touchdown strikes. His first grab went 87 yards, the longest regular season touchdown pass in franchise history.

Lasting Image of the Game: The gruesome Eric Foster injury will be hard to forget.

Lasting Image of the Game II: Peyton Manning disgusted in the coach's box.
