Colts | Curtis Painter holds his own in first NFL start
Indianapolis Colts QB Curtis Painter completed 13 of 30 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 4 game Monday, Oct. 3, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his first NFL start. He also lost a fumble. Painter's 87-yard TD pass to WR Pierre Garcon in the second quarter was the first scoring strike of his career. It was the longest first TD pass to start a career since Pittsburgh Steelers QB Charlie Batch, then of the Detroit Lions, had a 98-yard TD throw to start his career back in 1998.
