INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich knew immediately what the problem was against Tampa Bay — so did quarterback Carson Wentz. Five turnovers, four in the second half, and abandoning their run-first approach proved too much to overcome against the defending Super Bowl champions. Instead, the Colts blew another big lead as they fell 38-31 — a loss that could seriously hurt their playoff hopes.
The Colts (6-6) travel to Houston to take on the Texans (2-9) Sunday, Dec. 5 at 1 p.m. ET.
When it came time to sing the national anthem Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, the sound system wasn't working. So, the jam-packed stadium chimed in, singing together.
