LOS ANGELES (WTHR) — The Colts came back from a 15 points deficit in the second half to force overtime in their first game of the 2019 season.

The Chargers won the coin toss and received the ball first. LA marched down the field on a 75 yard, 8 play and scored a touchdown, giving the Colts a 24-30 loss.

Every week of the season, Colts All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard will join Dave Calabro for an exclusive interview "Inside the Huddle."

"The defense that showed today wasn't what we want to put on the field." Leonard said.

"We shot ourselves a lot in the foot," Leonard told Dave Calabaro. "We are always talking about being disciplined so we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and see what we can control."

Leonard had seven tackles, three of them solo in the game.

WTHR is partnering with Riley Hospital for Children and Republic Airways to honor a "Riley Kid of the Week."

This week's Riley Kid of the Week is Delenn Antanovich from Columbia City. Delenn is a third-grader who is active in Girl Scouts, takes inclusive dance class and participates in equine therapy. She loves arts and crafts, playing with friends, and swimming. Delenn had her first surgery at Riley Hospital for Children when she was only 4 hours old. She was diagnosed with spina bifida myelomeningocele during a 19-week ultrasound and a team of Riley doctors was waiting for her when she was born.

Since then, Delenn has undergone six additional surgeries at Riley. She receives care from the Riley Neurosurgery and Riley Urology teams. Riley’s urology department is ranked as one of the top 10 pediatric urology programs in the country. Delenn has developed a special bond with Riley Nurse Practitioner Shelly King and wants to go into the medical field to help other kids like her.
