It can’t get much worse for the Miami Dolphins than that second quarter, right?
Miami’s offense takes over out of the break with the hope of righting the sinking ship that is also on fire and caught up in a maelstrom. Brissett is able to hit Waddle for a big gain of 9 and Gaskin for a gain of 19 to kick the drive off and move the team downfield. The offense stalls out again and ends up settling for another field goal instead of punching it in for six. I wonder if this team has allergies to scoring touchdowns?
This Dolphins defense is starting to get beat up by this Brady to Godwin connection as they connect for two plays of over 19 yards on the drive. The defense does get a sack by Andrew Van Ginkel, but it means nothing as the Bucs erase that with another big play to Godwin that ends up going for another touchdown. This game is completely out of hand and, if it happens in real life this way, this should signal the end for all of the offensive coordinators.
Brissett takes the field once again and is actually going to put together a solid drive for the first time in what feels like an eternity. The struggling quarterback ends up throwing the ball well and hits Parker and Gesicki for big gains. The offense gets back into the red zone and Myles Gaskin is able to take the ball in from the one-yard line to cut into this lead.
The Bucs take the kickoff but with only a few seconds left on the clock, they give the ball to Ronald Jones which ends up being the last play of the quarter.
At the end of the third: Miami 22, Tampa Bay 41
