NFL Preseason Preview - Miami (0-1) at Tampa Bay (0-1)



By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) - South Florida clashes with the central part of the Sunshine State when the Miami Dolphins make the short trip up I-75 to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

Each club is looking for its first preseason win after dropping games last week.

Miami fell in Atlanta when Falcons kicker Sergio Castillo booted a pair of second-half field goals to provide the winning margin in Atlanta's 16-10 preseason victory over the Dolphins at the Georgia Dome.

Ryan Tannehill excelled on his lone drive for Miami, hitting on all six of his throws for 62 yards on a drive the quarterback culminated with a 6-yard touchdown strike to Brandon Gibson.

The Dolphins marched down to the Atlanta 4-yard line with under three minutes to play, but quarterback Seth Lobato mishandled a center exchange and the Falcons' Nosa Eguae pounced on the fumble to kill the scoring opportunity.

The Bucs, meanwhile, lost in Jacksonville after Denard Robinson's touchdown run in the fourth quarter lifted the Jaguars to a 16-10 in Tampa Bay's first game under new head coach Lovie Smith, who was hired in the offseason to replace the unpopular Greg Schiano.

Free agent signing Josh McCown, who played under Smith in Chicago, went 2- for-4 for 20 yards and an interception while starting under center in his Bucs debut. Backup Mike Glennon got the majority of the playing time, hitting on 11-for-19 passes for 140 yards and a score.

Miami holds a 16-12 preseason series advantage against Tampa Bay but the Buccaneers defeated the Dolphins, 17-16, in Miami last August.
