Things haven't exactly been going well for the Tampa Buccaneers on Sunday, and they got a little worse after Carolina Panthers tight end Ed Dickson scored on a crazy fumble recovery early in the third quarter. 

With 12:25 left in the third, Jonathan Stewart took a hand off and ran about seven yards before fumbling the ball. Fortunately for him, the ball popped straight into the air and right into the hands of Dickson, who took it 57 yards for the score. 

The Buccaneers bad luck on the fumble comes during a game where the team's offense has given away the ball four times. Tampa Bay now has nine turnovers to this point of the season. 

Blame for Dolphins’ shortcomings vs. Jets ultimately lands on Philbin
