Gore hollered. Gore is taking charge on the 49ers offense, with Smith wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks for the defense. Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and even took the fake on Colin Kaepernick's late 50-yard scoring run in the San Francisco 49ers' 27-13 victory against the Dolphins on Sunday. Smith added two more sacks to bring his total for 19 1/2, passing Fred Dean's franchise-best single-season mark of 17 1/2 set in 1983. Smith also moved within three sacks of the single-season record Michael Strahan set in 2001 with the New York Giants. ''Guys really have a determination on this field and on this team,'' cornerback Tarell Brown said. ''We were focused out there...

49ers balance bests Miami, 27-13

The NFL’s number two rushing offense entered the game debuting a new back up and an off-season beast of an acquisition “rotting away.” As much as any team would want to give Frank Gore the rock for 25 to 30 carries a game, the San Francisco 49ers understand how much they need their workhorse down the back stretch of the 2012 season.

Five Reasons The San Francisco 49ers Will Choke In NFL Playoffs
