Buccaneers looking for a comeback win in Indianapolis

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trailing 19-12 to the Indianapolis Colts after three quarters, but they're looking to mount a comeback in the fourth.

The Bucs looked comfortably like the better team in the first half, heading into halftime with a 12-6 lead, but that turned around quickly at the start of the first quarter. Two three-and-outs and some coverage breakdowns gave the Colts ten points on two drives, and they took a 16-12 lead midway through the third quarter.

The Bucs looked to get back in the game, but a Mike Evans drop and then a Connor Barth miss (his second of the game), and then a ridiculous personal foul by Logan Mankins gave the Colts the ball in Bucs territory instead. They converted that into a field goal and now lead 19-12 heading into the fourth quarter.

Can Jameis Winston get the second fourth quarter comeback win of his career? We'll find out over the next hour.
