Buccaneers Vs. Dolphins Score Update: Tampa Leads 7-0 After 1st Quarter

The first quarter of the first preseason game is in the books, and Tampa Bay's first team looks to be ending their night. The Bucs starters looked sharp on offense, with Josh Freeman hitting four of five attempts for 41 yards. LeGarrette Blount got the start at running back and he burst into the end zone from one yard out for the game's only touchdown. As one might expect for the first game action of the year, Blount looked fresh and averaged over four yards per carry. Greg Schiano pounded the ball with Blount on four straight plays, with the big back hitting the holes with a purpose. Leading 7-0 after the first quarter, Freeman's night is over and it's likely Blount is done as well.

Matt Moore took the first team reps at quarterback for the Dolphins, and he completed six of nine passes for 58 yards. Moore went to his trusty tight end Anthony Fasano to repeatedly start the game, hitting the Notre Dame product three straight times. Miami's first drive stalled out at the 33, however, and Dan Carpenter missed from 51 yards out.
