Brady and the Bucs are coming off an emotional 19-17 victory in Foxoboro. Brady had modest numbers in his return to a rain-soaked Gillette Stadium. The 44-year-old completed 22-of-his-43 passes for 269 yards, with no touchdowns and his lowest passer rating since November of last season. This game against the Dolphins will mark Brady's first entering as the NFL's all-time passing leader after moving past Drew Brees last week. 

Don't tell opposing defenses just yet, but the Bucs may have finally figured out how to use Leonard Fournette. The running back took the Pats for a season high 91 yards on 20 carries and caught three passes for 47 yards. Tampa Bay will look to keep that ground game going as they host Miami.

After winning their first game of the season The Dolphins have lost three straight, including last week’s 27 -17 loss to the Colts. Miami was able to get a field goal after a muffed punt by Indy gave them great field position just six minutes into the game, but then they were kept off the scoreboard until Jacoby Brissett hit Mike Gesicki on a 1-yard Touchdown pass at the 10:40 mark of the fourth quarter. 

Dolphins inactives: Noah Igbinoghene (DB), Greg Little (T), Hunter Long (TE), John Jenkins (DT), DeVante Parker (WR), Trill Williams (CB)

Buccaneers inactives: Jaelon Darden (WR), Rob Gronkowski (TE), Nick Leverett (OL) Patrick O'Connor (DL), Kyle Trask (QB), Ke'Shawn Vaughn (RB), Antoine Winfield, Jr. (S)

Brissett, who took over for an injured Tua Tagovailoa in week two, has mostly struggled over the 11-plus quarters he’s had the starters reigns. He’s posted a 77.8 passer rating in total, but did have a strong game last week a against his old team. Brissett took the Colts for 280 yards on 20-of-30 passing with two touchdowns. He'll be down a target today as wide receiver DeVante Parker is inactive due to a hamstring injury. 

The Buccaneers are a HUGE 11-Point favorites against the Dolphins. The over/under is 48.

Dolphins vs Buccaneers live streams in the US

In the US, today's Dolphins vs Buccaneers is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT today (Oct. 10)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
