The former LSU star piled up 100 rushing yards on 17 carries and added seven receptions for 31 yards for four total touchdowns in Tampa Bay’s 38-31 come-from-behind victory over the Colts in Indianapolis.
Fournette capped the four-touchdown performance with a 28-yard scoring run with 20 seconds left in the game. After the Colts tied the game at 31 apiece with 3:29 left, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady engineered an 8-play, 75-yard drive, that ended with Fournette’s final TD run.
It was Tampa Bay’s second-straight victory, and Brady improved to 16-4 all-time against the Colts in his first appearance facing Indianapolis with the Bucs.
Indianapolis held a 24-14 at the half, but the Buccaneers swung momentum their way when defensive end Shaq Barrett forced a fumble and recovered it at the Bucs 35. Six plays later, Fournette scored on a 4-yard TD run.
Antoine Winfield Jr. then intercepted a deep pass intended for Colts wideout Michael Pittman Jr., which led to a Ronald Jones 1-yard TD run to put the Bucs up 28-24 with 1:06 left in the third quarter.
After Bucs kicker Ryan Succop booted a short field goal, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor scored a 4-yard TD run with 3:29 remaining in the contest.
