The Buccaneers dropped to 5-6 after falling to the Colts, 25-12, during their Week 12 matchup in Indianapolis on Sunday.  The Bucs led at halftime but were outscored, 12-6, in the second half. Tampa Bay struggled with penalties throughout the game, drawing 11 flags for nearly 100 yards.

Among bright spots for the Bucs were running back Doug Martin and quarterback Jameis Winston.

Doug Martin continued his stellar season, picking up 97 yards on 14 carries. Martin ripped off a 56-yarder in the second quarter, surpassing 1,000 yards on the season in the process.

Winston performed well, connecting on 20 passes on 36 attempts, throwing a touchdown in the process. He was picked off once with time running out.

Vincent Jackson caught four passes for a team-high 76 receiving yards while Cameron Brate and Mike Evans both hauled in five passes. Brate was on the receiving end of Winston's lone touchdown pass. Kwon Alexander led the team in both tackles (10) and solo tackles (7). Jude Adjei-Barimah was second on the team with nine tackles while Lavonte David had seven.

The Buccaneers will host Falcons at home next weekend.
