MIAMI, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Rookie Doug Martin and LeGarrette Blount each scored a rushing touchdown Friday in the first half of Tampa Bay's 20-7 pre-season win over Miami.

Martin and Blount combined for 51 rushing yards on seven carries apiece.

The game marked the debut of Tampa Bay Coach Greg Schiano, who took over from the fired Raheem Morris after the Buccaneers dropped 10 straight games to end the 2011 season.

Josh Freeman played one series in the pre-season opener while back-up Dan Orlovsky went 8-for-8 through the air for 91 yards.

New Dolphins Coach Joe Philbin, meanwhile, fell in his own debut.

Miami quarterback David Garrard revealed before the game he would miss 2-4 weeks due to minor knee surgery, so Matt Moore started and threw for 79 yards and an interception on 7-of-12 efficiency.

Reggie Bush ran for a team-high 17 yards on four carries.
