The young Bucs came close to their second straight win under Josh Freeman with a spirited performance against their in-state rivals but fell just short thanks to a late Dolphin field-goal.   With the game on the line the defense gave up a 25-yard pass on the first play, 9 yards on a pass interference call on the second and a 16-yard completion on the third. After Chad Henne spiked the ball to stop the clock, a 27-yard run by Ricky Williams set the stage for Dan Carpenter's 25-yard field goal with 10 seconds left. Connor Barth became the first Tampa kicker to have three successful 50+ yard field-goals in a single game and Freeman led a drive that put the Bucs ahead with 74 seconds left as Cadillac Williams went over from a yard out.
