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.
