Five players who performed well in the Buccaneers' victory over the Dolphins.

1. WR Rannell Hall
Hall, an undrafted rookie out of Central Florida, saw the field for almost three quarters and looked sharp when targeted. He finished as the Bucs' leading receiver, catching four passes for 63 yards, including a 26-yarder. Hall missed the Bucs' first preseason game with an injury but caught two passes in each of the team's second and third games.

2. S Keith Tandy
For players fighting for a roster spot, special teams is a great way to help secure a place on the team. Recording three turnovers probably helps, too. Tandy had two impressive plays on the punt coverage team, recovering a fumble early in the game and earning an open-field tackle later on. He also performed well on defense, recording two interceptions, including one on the Dolphins' final drive to seal the victory. He entered the game as the No. 3 free safety on the Bucs' depth chart.

3. WR Adam Humphries
Like Hall, Humphries made sure the Bucs' coaches noticed him before the team cuts their roster down to 53 players this weekend. Humphries caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown, all of which came in the first half. He also saw time as the team's punt and kick returner, earning nine yards on his lone punt return and picking up 14 yards on his only kick return attempt.

4. K Kyle Brindza
Brindza did not disappoint in his first game as a Buccaneer. The rookie, whom the Bucs acquired via trade with Detroit earlier this week, kicked two long-range field goals, one from 57 yards and another from 55. Those were his only attempts on the night. Brindza also handled kickoff duties and routinely dropped the ball near the back of Miami's end zone.

5. LB Khaseem Greene
Thursday night was the second time that Greene has led the Buccaneers in tackles during a preseason game. He was also the team's leading tackler against Minnesota back on August 15th. Greene picked up 10 tackles on Thursday, but the lasting memory of his performance will be his 98-yard interception return for a touchdown. Greene jumped a route near the goal line to pick off McLeod Bethel-Thompson and out-ran the Dolphins' offense the length of the field for a score.
