The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the only team without a win heading into Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins, but by the time the final whistle blew, they had earned their first victory in dramatic fashion, defeating the Dolphins by a score of 22-19.
After blowing a 15-0 lead and seemingly giving away a first-half lead for the second time in two weeks, the Buccaneers charged back down the field for a game-winning touchdown run by third-string running back Bobby Rainey.
The win brings the Buccaneers to 1-8 on the year, and while it doesn't absolve the players and staff of the guilt associated with their terrible season, it provides a glimpse into what this team could do when everything goes according to plan.
So what can we learn from this game? Here are some of my takeaways from the first win of the season for the Buccaneers.
