Buccaneers at Dolphins Postgame Notes

BUCCANEERS POSTGAME NOTES

- Linebacker Adam Hayward recorded two special teams takeaways, recovering the ball following a muffed punt – which led to a Tampa Bay touchdown – and then again following a fumbled punt return – leading to a Tampa Bay field goal.

- Hayward’s second recovery was aided by tight end Tom Crabtree, who forced the Dolphins fumble.

- Defensive end Trevor Scott, making his first appearance as a Buccaneer, recorded 3.0 sacks in tonight’s game. This marks the first time since at least 2000 that a Tampa Bay player has recorded three sacks in a preseason game.
