Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette had one of the best games of his career, as he scored four touchdowns to help lead the Bucs to a 38-31 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night.

“It was great capping off the game like that with a punch,” Fournette said. “It got scary at the end, but it’s a team sport. We came together and made it happen.”

Tight end Rob Gronkowski called this win a “playoff-caliber win.”

“We just stuck together,” said Gronkowski. “To have a win on the road like that, that’s a playoff-caliber win. The atmosphere here, what a game, what an atmosphere to be a part of on football Sunday today. Just overall it was an excellent team win on the road.”

Fournette carried 17 times for 100 yards and three touchdowns, and caught Tom Brady’s only TD pass of the game, for a career-high four touchdowns.

Brady was not at his best on Sunday as he went 25-for-34 for 226 yards, one touchdown pass and one interception.

On the other hand, Colts quarterback Carson Wentz could not hide his disappointment.

“It is frustrating,” Wentz said. “I don’t know how many times we can turn the ball over against a good team like that, that many times, and still score that many points. It’s not going to happen.”

Next up, the Buccaneers visit the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday and the Colts head to Houston to face the Texans.
