TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- There's nothing like winning to bring hope for a struggling team.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened the season with eight consecutive losses, but woke up Tuesday feeling better about themselves and the direction of what's been a disappointing season.

The Bucs (1-8) became the last NFL team to win with a 22-19 victory over the embattled Miami Dolphins on Monday night, and coach Greg Schiano believes his players have the mettle to build on that win.
