Scandal could be rallying point for Dolphins

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Immersed in a bullying scandal that threatens to sabotage the season, the Miami Dolphins are looking forward to shifting the focus to the playing field, even if it's only for a few hours.

The Dolphins play at Tampa Bay on Monday night and hope to get a temporary break from the seemingly endless revelations and rumors in the case. It's their first game since tackle Jonathan Martin left the team last week and complained he endured daily abuse from teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who was suspended.

While the Buccaneers are winless, the Dolphins have descended into something worse - a team under NFL investigation because of the bullying case that's national news.

The case has Miami missing two starters in an offensive line that played poorly even with them.
