Miami/San Francisco Preview

All-time series: Miami leads 6-5
Last meeting: Dec. 14, 2008 at Miami – Dolphins 14, 49ers 9

There are no easy opponents in the NFL, but Miami is certainly facing two of the league’s elite in consecutive weekends. Following last week’s loss to the New England Patriots at home, the Fins will be flying across the country this week to take on the 8-3-1 San Francisco 49ers.

Both the Fins and 49ers are coming off losses, as San Francisco surprisingly fell at the St. Louis Rams in Week 12. The 49ers have been in the midst of a quarterback controversy over the past month, as long-time starter Alex Smith went down with a concussion Nov. 11, and despite having him healthy again, he has since lost his starting job to his back-up, Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick was integral in that loss last week, as a late-game turnover following a botched play with three minutes left to play allowed the Rams to tie the game, and they eventually went on to top the 49ers in overtime. Despite the loss, Head Coach Jim Harbaugh still expects to stick with Kaepernick this week.

Miami’s offense will also be in for another stringent test this week against the NFL’s second-best defense. Rookie Ryan Tannehill has been struggling as of late at the QB position, and he could be facing a long day, as the NFL’s leader in sacks Aldon Smith will be lining up against rookie left tackle Jonathan Martin, who is replacing Jake Long following his season-ending injury. Tannehill’s protection will be crucial for the Fins’ offensive line if they hope to get anything going on that side of the ball, and Miami will also have to limit its turnovers if they want to stay in competition with the likes of a team such as San Francisco.
