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.
Prediction: 49ers 24, Dolphins 13
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.
