TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Mike Glennon threw a touchdown pass to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take a 10-0 lead over the Miami Dolphins after the first quarter Monday night.
The Buccaneers took the opening kick and put together an impressive nine-play, 76-yard drive for a 7-0 lead that ended when Glennon threw a 1-yard TD pass to tackle Donald Penn, who lined up as an eligible receiver.
Tampa Bay, looking for its first win this season, went ahead 10-0 when Rian Lindell made a 24-yard field goal on its second possession.
The Dolphins have been the talk of the NFL, with the league investigating accusations that second-year pro Jonathan Martin left the team because he was being harassed or bullied by fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, and perhaps by other players.
Buccaneers running back Mike James hurt his ankle during the game-opening drive and was taken off the field on a cart. The team announced that James was out for the rest of the game.
