Seventeen penalties, four turnovers are hard for any team to overcome, and it's something that needs to change if the Dolphins want to turn their season around.

GARDENS-Everyone can see it. Matt Moore might not actually be any better than Jay Cutler, but the Dolphins' offense comes to life for the former. The first interception wiped away Miami's chance to score in the red zone on their first possession of the game.

The Buccaneers (4-6) forced three interceptions of Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler and a key fumble inside the two-minute warning in the first half to build a 20-7 halftime lead.


Cutler, who signed a one-year deal worth $10 million prior to the season after a season-ending injury to Ryan Tannehill, was 6 of 12 for 83 yards with a touchdown and the three picks. He finished 17 of 28 as Moore threw for 282 yards and a touchdown.

Miami has dropped four straight games and the road won't get any easier for them when they face the 7-2 New England Patriots in Week 12. Down 20-13 entering the fourth quarter the Dolphins appeared to be unable to move the football, but with three minutes remaining, Moore connected with Kenny Stills for a 61-yard touchdown to tie the game at 20. The second interception set up Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the Dolphins five-yard line. Allen, who also started earlier this season in place of Lawrence Timmons, didn't record a tackle and exited in the second half to be evaluated for a concussion.
