Encouraging performance for Miami WR Brandon Marshall

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Rudy Carpenter threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Nathan Overbay with 3:11 remaining, giving Tampa Bay a 17-13 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Josh Freeman directed a TD drive just before the half to finish on a positive note. Connor Barth kicked a 28-yard field goal for the Bucs (2-1), who overcame 15 penalties in a performance not nearly as crisp as they’d hoped for coming off last week’s sloppy, lopsided loss to New England.

Brandon Marshall scored on a 60-yard reception from Chad Henne, and Dan Carpenter kicked field goals of 21 and 47 yards for the Dolphins (2-1), who were penalized 11 times themselves.

Fantasy Impact: 

On the night, Marshall had two catches for 90 yards. There is reason to be suspicious of him because of Chad Henne, but if Henne somehow gets his act together on a regular basis, there won't be much risk of Marshall being a fantasy underachiever.
