Monday Night Preview: Colts at Buccaneers

The Indianapolis Colts (0-3) travel down to Tampa tonight to take on the up and coming Buccaneers (2-1).
The last time these two faced each other on Monday Night Football, the Bucs were up 35-14 with 4 minutes left, but Peyton Manning and the Colts stormed back to win in overtime 38-35. However, there will be no such heroics for the Colts this week. Josh Freeman is by far the more decorated starter in his match up, and his 8 career 4th quarter comebacks speak to his ability to make plays in the clutch.

Curtis Painter will make the first start of his Career tonight.
Bucs sold out a home game for the first time since 09-10 season.
Freeman will try to get back on track after starting the season with a 2-4 TD:INT ratio.
Dwight Freeney attempts to continue his dominance against '10 Pro Bowler Donald Penn.
Will the Colts slip to 0-4? Can the Bucs improve their position in the playoff race? We'll see tonight.

Prediction: Manning is out. Collins is out. Painter is in. Bucs win. 27-10.
