A long road trip, tough defense and 49ers coming off a loss yields the most predictable result all season.

Comment:

San Francisco built

Bill Parcells

’ ideal team. The 49ers are physical on both lines of scrimmage. They stuff the run, run the ball and hound the quarterback. Its QB play that sets these two teams apart.

Prediction:

49ers 14, Dolphins 10

Comment:

The Dolphins’ lack of offense strikes again. They statistically rank as one the worst offenses in the league, averaging a mere 18.9 points per game (27th in the

NFL

).

Comment:

Niners will bounce back from tough loss to

Rams

and defense will be too much for

Tannehill

to handle.

Prediction: 49ers 30, Dolphins 13
Comment: The 49ers are battling for playoff position. They lead Seattle by a game and a half in the NFC West, and are only a half game up on Chicago and Green Bay for the second playoff seed. With their next two games at New England and at Seattle, the 49ers are posied for a blowout win against the Dolphins.

Comment: Ryan Tannehill absolutely must improve his accuracy to wide open receivers. And the absence of Jake Long, no matter his mediocre play this season, looms large.
