The San Francisco 49ers have won three games in a row and currently sit on top of the NFC West with a 7-4 record.
Their defense continues to be strong, as it ranks first in points, yards and passing touchdowns allowed.

But they will face a very stiff test on Sunday when they host Tua Tagovailoa and the surging Miami Dolphins.
This will be a proverbial statement game for both teams, and don’t be surprised if the following comes to pass.
Tagovailoa Will Not Have A Great Game
Perhaps the third-year quarterback will put up solid numbers, but he likely won’t go off and have at least three touchdown passes.
In addition, safety Talanoa Hufanga may be a Pro Bowl candidate himself, as he has collected four interceptions, seven passes defended and five tackles for loss in 11 games.
San Francisco has given up over 300 passing yards in just three games so far this season.
The 49ers Will Win
The Dolphins are a fairly young team, and they have some new pieces, including star wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
The Niners, on the other hand, may be young themselves, but they’ve been together for a few years, and they’ve proven that, when healthy, they know how to lock down opponents and get big stops in big situations.
