In the NFL, Tampa Bay has managed to become the last NFL team to win a game this season, one day after Jacksonville earned its first victory. Meanwhile, things have gone from bad to worse for the Miami Dolphins.

The Bucs coughed up a 15-0 lead before Bobby Rainey scored on a one-yard run with 10:19 left to help Tampa Bay beat the Dolphins 22-19. Rainey had 45 of the Buccaneers' 140 rushing yards on a night Miami had just two yards on 14 carries.


The Jets and the Patriots opened up week 2 of the NFL season Thursday night. Tom Brady threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Dobson on the game's first series and the Pats held off the Jets 13-10 despite managing just nine first downs and 234 yards total offense.

The Pats played without wide receiver Danny Amendola and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who missed the game because of injuries.  Jets rookie QB Geno Smith threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter. New England is now 2-0 on the season.

In college football action, Texas Tech beat No. 24 TCU 20-10.
