Miami Comes Close, Can’t Get the Job Done in San Fran in 27-13 Loss

The Miami Dolphins knew Sunday it would be a tough task to go on the road and win in San Francisco against a still very good 49ers team.

They hung in for most of the day, but in the end, they were not up to the challenge, losing to the Niners 27-13 to fall to 5-8 on the season, and almost for sure out of any hopes of the playoffs.

The Dolphins lost for the fifth time in their past six games, giving the Niners a scare in the final quarter. Trailing by a touchdown, they marched to the San Francisco 35 and had a first down with 4:35 left to play, but quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw four consecutive incomplete passes, and the 49ers took over.

“You’ve got to make a play,” Dolphins guard Richie Incognito said. “We’ve got to move the ball. We couldn’t make a play when it counted.”
