The Bucs have the ball to start the second and pick up 10 yards on each of their next four plays. They get a 1-yard rush out of Jones on their fifth play and then Brady connects with Mike Evans for a touchdown. Succop doesn’t miss twice and the Bucs increase their lead.
On THE VERY NEXT PLAY, Brissett throws another interception and the Bucs take over on the 3-yard line. Godwin takes another short Brady pass in for 6. This game is very quickly getting out of control.
Miami’s offense takes over on the 25-yard line with a huge deficit to make up in this one. Brissett hits DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki for nice gains of 10 and 9 respectively before throwing the ball away on second down and giving up a sack to Vita Vea to end the drive at midfield. This offense is never going to find its way out of this slump.
Miami punts the ball and miraculously pins the Bucs on their own one-yard line. On the next play, the Dolphin’s defensive line overwhelms the Buccaneers and is able to tackle Leonard Fournette for a loss of three and thus a safety! Miami takes the free-kick back 25 yards and ends up on their own 32-yard line to start their drive.
This is the momentum that Miami needs to turn this one around. Except for the fact that Brissett forgot which team he played for. He throws his third interception of the half and Tampa Bay gets the ball on the 16-yard line. The Bucs methodically move the ball downfield and the next thing we know, they are in the endzone once again. I’m not even sure if I want to simulate the rest of this game.
Brissett takes the field once again and is actually able to connect on a few nice plays to Waddle and Albert Wilson. The Dolphins are able to move down the field deep into Buccaneers territory before Brissett throws his fourth interception of the game. The Dolphins defense responds with an interception of their own to give the offense one last try at putting some points on the board. In typical Dolphins style, they end up settling for a field goal.
The Bucs take the ensuing kickoff and kneel the ball to run out the clock.
At the end of the second: Miami 12, Tampa Bay 34
