INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The Colts were in high spirits on Sunday following a win against the Carolina Panthers.
The team won handily against the Panthers 38-6 in the final home game of the 2019-2020 season.
Although the team won't make the playoffs this year, this win was important for them after struggling earlier in the season.
"We didn't beat ourselves. Last week we had too many mistakes and this week we came; we toned in; we knew what we had to do," Leonard said. "... We know we wanted to get a win, especially our last home game of the season and did."
The Colts current record is 7-8 with one final game left to play in the regular season.
Leonard is partnering with Riley Children’s Foundation and Republic Airways all season to help raise funds for Riley Hospital for Children.
