TAMPA BAY, Fla. (WTHR) — The Indianapolis Colts just can't seem to close in the second half.

That's despite picking off the Buccaneers' Jameis Winston three times and returning one of those for a touchdown.

Linebacker Darius Leonard said it meant a lot to score a touchdown in front of his family after intercepting Winston.

"Having my Lupus cleats on for my sister, having my family in the stands...it was very emotional for me," Leonard said.

The Colts had been off to a 5-2 start and were at one point first in the AFC South. The team is now 6-7 and third in the AFC South.
