The Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers squared off last night with Miami coming away with the win. On offense for the Dolphins, it was the Skylar Thompson show as the rookie quarterback played some pretty good football. He wasn’t perfect but there was way more good than bad. Lynn Bowden scored a touchdown and showed he could be a contributor for this Dolphins offense.

Defensively we didn’t see any of the exotic blitzed that this defense has loved to run. It was just a simple game design. Trill Williams continued his strong preseason until he had to be helped off the field and carted to the locker room. Hoping all the best for Williams.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
