The Bucs’ two-game winning streak came to an end against the Colts as veteran Matt Hasselbeck led a potent Indianapolis team to victory.  Tampa Bay had a 12-6 half-time lead as Jameis Winston connected with TE Cameron Brate for the second straight week but the second half was all Colts as they controlled the clock for most of the third quarter.  Two late Buccaneer drives came to naught, one ending on downs at the Indianapolis 24-yard line and the other on a Winston interception just before the two minute warning.   Doug Martin had another 50+ yard run on his way to just missing his fifth 100-yard game of the season but the Bucs missed their chance to move above .500 and take another step in the race for a Wild Card playoff berth.
