TAMPA BAY, FL (WTVB) -There will be no winless teams this season in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Miami Dolphins 22-19 in Monday Night Football in Tampa for their first victory of the year. The Dolphins, already dealing with the drama surrounding Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, saw their record dip to 4-and-5. The Bucs had been the last remaining team without a win after Jacksonville got to 1-and-8 with their 2-point victory Sunday at Tennessee.
Meanwhile, Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz says you don’t get a prize for being in first place nine games into the season and stressed at his at his weekly news conference Monday that the Lions are going to stay in the moment and not get wrapped up in their one game NFC North lead after beating the Bears in Chicago on Sunday. The Lions take their 6-and-3 record on the road Sunday to play the Pittsburgh Steelers.
