The Miami Dolphins look to stay in the AFC Wild Card race when they head west to take on the San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon.

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Dolphins (5-7) will try to stay in the AFC Wild Card race when they travel west to take on the San Francisco 49ers (8-3-1).

The Dolphins saw their chance of an AFC East title officially end last week after their 23-16 home loss to the New England Patriots. Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 186 yards and added a rushing touchdown while Brian Hartline had five receptions for 86 yards. Dan Carpenter had a perfect day, going 3-3 on field goals.

The NFC West leading 49ers had a disappointing 16-13 overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams. Colin Kaepernick went 21-of-32 pass attempts for 208 yards, but two mistakes from Kaepernick led immediately to 10 points for the Rams.

In the third quarter, Kaepernick was called for intentional grounding in the end zone, which led to a St. Louis safety. Late in the fourth quarter with the 49ers leading 10-2, Kaepernick's errant pitch from inside his own 10-yard line was picked up by Janoris Jenkins and scored from two yards out to make it 10-10. After tying the game at the end of regulation, Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein hit a game winning 54-yard field goal with just 26 seconds left in overtime to give the Rams the victory.
