Bucs rally in 4th quarter to claim first win

– Mike Glennon threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tackle Donald Penn and led a long fourth-quarter TD drive to put the Buccaneers ahead for good in a 22-19 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.

Bobby Rainey’s 1-yard run capped an 80-yard drive, and the Bucs held on the final 10 minutes to become the last team in the league to win this season.

Jacksonville beat Tennessee on Sunday, leaving Tampa Bay (1-8) as the league’s only winless team entering the game.

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

Ryan Tannehill threw touchdown passes of 6 and 19 yards to Rishard Matthews, but got no help from a running game that was limited to just 2 yards rushing.

Manning to play in Broncos next game

The MRI determined the hit caused no further damage to Peyton Manning’s tender right ankle.

Now, Manning and the Broncos are curious what the NFL thinks of that hit.

Interim coach Jack Del Rio said the Broncos have sent replays to the league offices of Corey Liuget’s dive at Manning’s ankles in the closing minutes of Denver’s 28-20 win over San Diego.

Manning, whose ankles have been hurting since games against Jacksonville and Indianapolis last month, stayed down after Liuget dove at him following a completed pass that iced the game with 1:44 left. Manning limped through the rest of the game and in the locker room afterward.

An MRI on Monday showed no further damage to the ankle, which was heavily taped throughout the Chargers game. Del Rio said Manning would play Sunday in Denver’s AFC West showdown against Kansas City.

Cutler to miss game

If Chicago is going to make a playoff run, it will be without cornerback Charles Tillman and possibly quarterback Jay Cutler.

Cutler, who left Sunday’s 21-19 loss to the Detroit Lions, has a high left ankle sprain and will miss Sunday’s game against Baltimore. He is listed as week to week by the team, and Josh McCown will start.

Tillman suffered a torn right triceps muscle in the second half Sunday, and has been placed on injured reserve/designated to return.

He can return to practice in six weeks and is eligible to play again in eight weeks. The Bears (5-4) have seven games remaining in the regular season.
