The Fins are coming off of their second straight game against the NFL’s elite, as they fell Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers just one week after taking on the New England Patriots. While there are no moral victories in football, and members of the team would assure you of that, the Fins once again had opportunities late to capitalize and possibly tie or win the game, but failed to seize those moments en route to the 27-13 loss.
Midway through the fourth quarter, Anthony Fasano scored a touchdown on a 4th and 3 play to close the gap to 13-20. After the defense forced a quick three-and-out, the Fins again put themselves into position to tie the game. But, with a first down and the ball at the San Francisco 35-yard line, QB Ryan Tannehill through four straight incompletions, including another attempt on 4th down that was overthrown to Marlon Moore, to turn the ball back over to the home team with just over four minutes left on the clock.
From there, the 49ers made quick work in sealing the victory, as Colin Kaepernick took the ball 50 yards into the end zone just five plays later to push the lead to 14, 27-13, which ended up being the final margin of victory.
The Fins, who were held to just 227 yards of total offense, also had to suffer the consequences from several special teams and defensive miscues. In the third quarter, Marcus Thigpen fumbled a punt, which the 49ers recovered on the 9-yard line and easily ran in for six points shortly thereafter. Then, in the fourth quarter, San Francisco went for it on a short 4th and 1 play, but cornerback Sean Smith was signaled for a penalty, continuing their drive which ended in an Anthony Dixon TD five plays later.
The Fins will have all week to try to correct their miscues, and Tannehill has three more opportunities to get this offense back on track like it was earlier this season. And remember, you can be there to witness it in person with the help of MiamiDolphinsTickets.com!
