Jay Cutler out with concussion

The Dolphins' defense had been relatively stout all day, but they allowed the Buccaneers to march down the field to seal the game with a 35-yard field goal by Patrick Murray.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler was removed from Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a concussion evaluation. Miami answered with four plays of over 12 yards (plays of 12, 24 and 26), including a 69-yard run by Damien Williams.

Moore, 33, has been a long time backup for the Dolphins, and was called in to duty earlier in the year when Cutler suffered a rib injury.

Miami started the second half by putting in Matt Moore to replace Cutler, who was evaluated for a concussion.

Cutler would throw two more interceptions during the first half, one of which went right off Parker's hands before popping in the air and into the hands of Bucs cornerback Robert McClain.

Moore went 17 of 28 for 282 yards, including a 61-yard scoring pass to Kenny Stills to tie the score at 20 with 3:00 left. Stocker has been the Bucs' third tight end all season, but has only three catches for 18 yards, including a touchdown late in Tampa Bay's lopsided loss to New Orleans. Miami's running game overall wasn't consistent, but the team is hitting home runs with the ground game. Jackson's touchdown was a result of cornerback Ryan Smith's forced fumble and recovery. That made the score 20-7 and took the energy directly out of Hard Rock Stadium. And it was the Buccaneers that emerged with a wild 30-20 triumph.
