MIAMI GARDENS (AP) –  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got off to a good start under new coach Greg Schiano, scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions in a 20-7 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins on Friday night.

Starting quarterback Josh Freeman left the game after playing only one series for Tampa Bay (No. 26 in the AP Pro32), but completed 4 of 5 passes for 41 yards. LeGarrette Blount finished off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown plunge on fourth-and-goal.

Ryan Tannehill had a promising debut for Miami (No. 27 in the AP Pro32), completing 14 of 21 passes for 167 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown to tight end Charles Clay in the third quarter.

David Garrard was scheduled to start for Miami after being listed first on the depth chart, but his agent confirmed Friday he’s slated to have knee surgery.
