Week two of the preseason has come to a close as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Miami Dolphins; here are five standout performers.

Two weeks of the preseason are now accomplished for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as we are now two weeks away from the week one matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Last night the Buccaneers took on the Miami Dolphins and came away as the victors with a final score of 16-14 in a relatively boring game until the last five minutes.

The Buccaneers are now 1-1 in preseason action, but more importantly, young guys or guys near the bottom of the roster are getting a chance to make a name for themselves. With two weeks to go until the regular season, their opportunities are getting fewer and fewer.

With few positions already solidified such as quarterback and the offensive line, there are a ton of jobs to be won still on the Buccaneers’ roster. Who will win the third tight end spot? Who will be the third down running back in Tampa Bay? Who will round out the receiving and cornerback rooms for the Buccaneers?

With just two weeks until the regular season, here are five players who made their presence felt against the Dolphins in Tampa Bay last night.
