Prediction: Dolphins 23, Bucs 20
Comment: Can the Dolphins rally in the midst of all their turmoil surrounding the Jonathan Martin bullying case? Yes. But game should be closer than people think. The Bucs have lost four games in final 89 seconds of regulation or overtime. They blew a 21-0 lead before falling at Seattle in OT last week.
Prediction: Dolphins 20, Bucs 10
Comment: It's hard to believe the Dolphins have been totally focused this week. But they'll take care of business. The 0-8 Bucs have been dealing with distractions all season, including the messy handling of the release of quarterback Josh Freeman to speculation about the future of coach Greg Schiano.
Prediction: Dolphins 26, Bucs 10
Comment: Dangerous prediction with the massive distractions enveloping the Dolphins, but the Bucs - also filled with internal strife -are one of the three worst teams in the NFL and are coming off a disastrous loss in Seattle, where they blew a 21-0 lead to remain winless. With Cameron Wake back, the defense can again be dominant. There are no Giovani Bernards or A.J. Greens in Tampa.
