The Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the last team in the league to win this season as they improved their record to 1-8 with a 22-19 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Mike Glennon threw a one-yard touchdown pass to tackle Donald Penn and led a long fourth-quarter touchdown drive to put the Buccaneers ahead for good against the under-fire Dolphins.

Bobby Rainey's one-yard run capped an 80-yard drive, and the Bucs held on the final 10 minutes.

The Dolphins (4-5), playing for the first time since a bullying scandal, started slowly before overcoming an early 15-0 deficit to lead 19-15 heading into the fourth quarter.

Ryan Tannehill threw touchdown passes of six and 19 yards to Rishard Matthews but the Dolphins running game faltered and was limited to just two yards rushing.
