The Miami Dolphins will enter the final quarter of this NFL season with a 5-7 record that they will take on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. Barring a stunning turn around to finish the regular season, the Dolphins will not only have missed the playoffs for the past four seasons, they will also finish with a losing record over that span. While not many realistically expected the Dolphins to be contenders this season, there were glimmers of post-seasaon hope throughout this roller coaster of a year that have all but faded at this point.

How dare those Patriots. Running a successful play, trying it again and succeeding with it over and over against a team that couldn't just defend it.

Miami Dolphins should have hands full versus the 49ers

In 1992, a Miami Dolphins team complete with Dan Marino and a corps of receivers walked into a rainy and sloppy field in Candelstick park and came up empty with only a field goal losing 27-3.  Flash forward to 2012 and this matchup proves to be an opportunity for the 49ers to show they can be the best in the NFL or for the Miami Dolphins to show that they can win a big game on the...

Frank Gore notched his sixth season with 1,000 or more rushing yards Sunday, and he also piled up 63 yards rushing and 22 yards receiving plus a touchdown to lead the 49ers past the Dolphins 27-13.
