He was replaced by Matt Moore.

Dolphins' starting quarterback Jay Cutler picked an terrible time to have his first multi-interception game of the season.

Jarvis Landry scored the first Dolphins touchdown when he caught a 2-yard pass from Cutler in the first quarter.

Tampa drove the ball down the field and Patrick Murray hit a 35-yard field goal with 4 seconds left to give the Bucs their fourth win of the season.

Moore went 17 of 28 for 282 yards, including a 61-yard scoring pass to Kenny Stills to tie the score at 20 with 3:00 left.

It was an active first half for the Buccaneers' defense with the Miami Dolphins committing four turnovers in the first two quarters.

Cutler meanwhile went 6-of-12 for 83 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. "This isn't acceptable. It's unacceptable", said Dolphins Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake, who saw his team's top-10 run defense gashed for 294 yards on the ground by the Panthers.

For all intents and purposes, it's time for the Miami Dolphins to start thinking about the National Football League draft and next season.

The drive featured a 49-yard completion to Landry, the Dolphins' longest pass play of the season. After review, the ball was spotted just outside the goal line. "But, it wasn't. Moving on". Cutler did not return to the game because he was being evaluated for a concussion.

Before tying the game, the Dolphins missed several opportunities in the second half.

Moore, 33, has been a long time backup for the Dolphins, and was called in to duty earlier in the year when Cutler suffered a rib injury.

Howard, the Bucs' rookie tight end, celebrated his 23rd birthday Sunday. The Buccaneers (4-6) without starting quarterback Jameis Winston was supposed to be the easiest remaining game on Miami's schedule.

ABOUT THE BUCCANEERS (3-6): Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans admitted he made a "bone-headed play" when he hit New Orleans rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore from behind on November 5, igniting fireworks between the NFC South teams and resulting in a one-game suspension for him.
