Dolphins vs. 49ers: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IDecember 9, 2012

The San Francisco 49ers held serve at home, beating the Miami Dolphins in Week 14 by a score of 27-13.

It took a while for the 49ers offense to get rolling, as the Dolphins defense was firing on all cylinders for the first half of the game. But the 49ers pounded away with the running game, and Colin Kaepernick did enough in the passing game to soften up the middle. 

Frank Gore led the 49ers rushing attack with 63 yards and one touchdown, Kaepernick rushed for 53 yards and a touchdown on just three carries and LaMichael James saw his first action of the season and rushed for 30 tough yards on eight carries.

Michael Crabtree led the 49ers receiving corps with nine catches for 93 yards, and many of his yards came after the catch. 

Ryan Tannehill acquitted himself well against the No. 2 defense in the NFL, passing for 150 yards and one touchdown without throwing an interception.

Reggie Bush showed flashes, including a 17-yard burst, and finished with 65 yards on 14 carries, but the Dolphins couldn't get into the end zone on the ground. 

The 49ers improved to 9-3-1 on the season and will travel east to face the New England Patriots in Week 15, while the Dolphins fell to 5-8 and will host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday.
