Time for Dolphins to think about 2018 after deflating loss to Bucs

Time for Dolphins to think about 2018 after deflating loss to Bucs

A wild final play resulted in a touchdown for Adarius Glanton, and the Bucs escaped with a 30-20 win — their first on the road this year — over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Miami Dolphins lost to the Tampa Bay Bucs in a mistake-filled performance. He entered the weekend having thrown for 1,519 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 65.3 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 86.7. Miami's four turnovers led to 13 of Tampa Bay's 20 first-half points.

It is not known if Moore will start in the Dolphins Week 12 game against the New England Patriots, but he always appears to be ready when his number is called.

The Bucs gave up a 69-yard run to Damien Williams on the Dolphins second play, but escaped when rookie safety Justin Evans intercepted Jay Cutler in the end zone. Quarterback Matt Moore led the Dolphins offense in the second half and threw the ball down the field, finding wide outs Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills for big plays that kept the Dolphins in the game.

The Dolphins' defense had been relatively stout all day, but they allowed the Buccaneers to march down the field to seal the game with a 35-yard field goal by Patrick Murray. The Bucs turned the opportunity into a seven play, 63-yard scoring drive to open up the scoring. Allen, who also started earlier this season in place of Lawrence Timmons, didn't record a tackle and exited in the second half to be evaluated for a concussion.
