Dolphins topple Bucs 20-14
Second string quarterback Matt Moore led the offense on two touchdown scoring drives as the Miami Dolphins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-14 for their first preseason victory.
Cornerback Brent Grimes made a game changing play in the second quarter when he knocked the ball loose from Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans. The fumble resulted in a touchback for the Dolphins. The Dolphins continued to have struggles running the ball as they mustered -5 yards on 9 carries in the first half. Guard Dallas Thomas struggled as well, letting Bucs defensive lineman Gerald McCoy get past him and force a fumble by Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Will Davis continued to impress with another solid performance Saturday night. The defensive line dominated again in the trenches with five sacks. Rookie Terrence Fede made a strong case for himself making the team with his stellar performance. The Dolphins backup units played very well also, showing there will be tough decisions for the front office to make when final cuts come later this month. Next up for the Dolphins is the Dallas Cowboys, who they host on Saturday night.
