Bucs fall to Dolphins 20-14 in preseason home opener



Lots of coverage to share from Saturday's preseason home opener, which saw the Bucs jump out to a 7-3 lead -- nearly a 14-3 lead -- only to trail 20-7 before scoring in the final seconds of a 20-14 loss to the Dolphins.

Here's Rick Stroud's game story, focusing on the takeaway-touchdown formula the Bucs showed a glimpse of. Tom Jones writes that the Bucs need to get Doug Martin more involved as an offensive centerpiece this fall. Joey Knight writes on Mike Evans' touchdown that wasn't, a major momentum shift in the Bucs' loss. And here are your Bucs notes, from Gerald McCoy's strong start to a bunch of injuries and improved play from the first-team offensive line.
