Miami Gardens, FL - The Miami Dolphins' red zone offense took plenty of snaps Saturday night -- and finally produced a touchdown.

The first-team offense scored its only TD just before halftime on its 17th play inside the Tampa Bay 20, but the Buccaneers scored with 1:03 left in the game to win 17-16.

Miami's starters netted 180 yards playing the entire first half, their most extensive outing in four exhibition games. Ryan Tannehil went 17 for 27 for 150 yards and a 4-yard score to Brandon Gibson with 10 seconds left in the half for a 13-10 lead.

The score could have been lopsided in the Dolphins' favor, but Gibson and Brian Hartline dropped potential touchdown passes, and twice they settled for short field goals.

Miami fell to 1-3 with one exhibition game left. The Buccaneers improved to 1-2, but their first-team offense sputtered again.
