The Miami Dolphins travel north to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight.  Game three of the preseason is commonly used as the dress rehearsal before a rest game, then the start of the regular season.  I wouldn't expect tonight to be any different.  

Tampa Bay is one of the best, young teams in the NFL.  In fact, last season they became the first team to start 10 rookies, and still have a winning record.  They are looking to better their finish from last year, where they ended 10&6, but missed the playoffs.

Last week, the Buccaneers lost to the New England Patriots, with Tom Brady and the starters racking up 28 first half points, allowing none.

Miami is hoping to see some consistency develop tonight.  Last week, quarterback Chad Henne looked good in the first half against the Carolina Panthers.  The offensive line, with the return of tackle Jake Long, look to gel.  The corenerbacks, Vontae Davis and Sean Smith, look to continue their streak of not allowing a reception in the preseason.

As always, don't post as pictures in this thread - they only slow it down.  And do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).

Overflow threads will be posted as necessary.

Enjoy the game!

GO DOLPHINS!
