Matt Hasselbeck improves to 4-0 as Colts' starting QB this season

INDIANAPOLIS -- Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston may be the future of the NFL, but when it really mattered Sunday, it was the 40-year-old veteran quarterback who walked out of Lucas Oil Stadium with his perfect 2015 record still in place.

BUCCANEERS 12, COLTS 6 (HALFTIME): The Colts are barely getting any pressure on Buccaneers rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. Winston, the No. 1 overall pick in last springs draft, is having his way picking the Colts are apart. Winston was 9-of-15 for 130 yards and a touchdown in the first half. The Colts gave up a 56-yard run to Doug Martin, which set up the lone touchdown of the game. The Colts had the ball for 14:43 of the first half, but they only have two Adam Vinatieri field goals to show for it.

As Matthew Berry puts it, "he's banged-up, Ahmad Bradshaw is taking some of his snaps, and very quietly, the Bucs have a solid run defense." Berry: Love/Hate
