Mike McDaniel will get the chance to upstage his mentor this week when the Miami Dolphins take on the San Francisco 49ers. McDaniel was an assistant under Niners’ head coach Kyle Shanahan for more than a decade on five different teams before striking out on his own this offseason. McDaniel and Shanahan have nothing but love and respect for one another, but both teams are looking to claim division titles and need this victory.

We will see Mike McDaniel return home to take on his former team this week when the Miami Dolphins head west to face the San Francisco 49ers. These teams will square off on Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 4:05 p.m. ET on FOX from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Miami Dolphins Week 13 Matchup

The San Francisco 49ers enter this game at 7-4 following four straight victories. They are 1-2 against AFC teams though, as they lost to Denver and Kansas City earlier in the year. Jimmy Garoppolo has been very efficient since taking over for Trey Lance. Everyone knows what to expect out of Garoppolo, and there’s no denying he can be a great game manager as long as the run game has some success. Jimmy G is completing 67.4% of his passes for 2,381 yards (7.8 YPA) with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions, and he has only been sacked 17 times.

Interestingly enough, San Francisco’s leading rusher is Jeff Wilson Jr., who was traded to Miami prior to the trade deadline. Elijah Mitchell and Christian McCaffrey are a solid 1-2 combo in the backfield, and Deebo Samuel will have a few carries a game in certain sets. Samuel has given way to Brandon Aiyuk in the passing game this season, and we might see a lot of George Kittle this week.

Miami is allowing 23.3 PPG and 343.4 YPG. The secondary was one of the worst through the first third of the season, but they have gotten better over the course of the season and are currently a middle-of-the-pack unit.

This offense is the most explosive unit in the NFL. Tua Tagovailoa is completing 69.7% of his passes for 2,564 yards (9.0 YPA) with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. The offensive line has done an excellent job of protecting him, allowing him to be sacked just 12 times, and that has made Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle the most explosive receiving tandem in the NFL. Hill has 87 receptions for 1,233 yards and four touchdowns, while Waddle has 56 catches for 963 yards and six TDs.

Former 49ers Raheem Mostert and Wilson are the leading rushers in this offense. McDaniel wanted to bring them over from San Francisco as he knows their strengths, and they have been far more efficient than Chase Edmonds.

This will be the toughest test to date for Miami’s offense. San Francisco ranks first in almost every defensive category, surrendering just 15.7 PPG, 281.7 YPG, and 4.7 yards per play. This run defense ranks first in the NFL, but the secondary can be beaten, especially with Emmanuel Moseley and Jason Verrett on injured reserve.

Miami Dolphins Week 12 Recap

There was never a doubt that the Miami Dolphins were going to cruise to a victory over the Houston Texans last week. Miami led 30-0 at halftime before taking its foot off the gas pedal and cruising to a 30-15 victory over the Texans. The Dolphins had 339 total yards compared to just 210 total yards for the Texans, but Miami had just 69 yards in the second half.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 22 of 36 passes for 299 yards and a touchdown in the victory, but he was sacked four times on the day. Jaylen Waddle had five receptions for 85 yards, and Tyreek Hill caught six passes for 85 yards. The ground game wasn’t too effective though as Jeff Wilson Jr. and Myles Gaskin combined to carry the ball 19 times for 56 yards and a TD.

Kyle Allen made his first start of the season for Houston. Allen completed 26 of 39 passes for 215 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He was sacked five times by Miami’s front, and that front also completely shut down the Texans’ ground game. Houston had 14 carries for 36 yards and a TD on the afternoon.

Maliek Collins had a big day for Houston’s defense with two sacks and three tackles for loss. Meanwhile, Christian Wilkins had two TFL for the Dolphins, and kicker Jason Sanders made all six of his attempts.

The Miami Dolphins were a 1966 American Football League expansion franchise. Since their inception, they have shared the same AFC East Division with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills.

Miami drafted exceptionally well from the day the franchise opened for business. Players such as quarterback Bob Griese and running backs Jim Kiick, Larry Csonka, and Mercury Morris formed a strong nucleus. Wide receiver Paul Warfield later came over and was a Hall of Famer. But the most important acquisition was head coach Don Shula. Shula arrived in 1970 and got the Dolphins into the playoffs that year. By 1971, the Dolphins were AFC Champions. In 1972, Miami turned in a 17-0 perfect championship season, the only one in NFL history.

From 1970 through 2001, the Dolphins were perennial playoff contenders. But since 2002, Miami has made the playoffs only twice.

Of course, Miami is known for former quarterback Dan Marino re-writing the record book in a sensational career.

Owner Stephen M Ross bought the team in 2008 and has been one of the least effective owners in the NFL. After head coach Brian Flores was fired last January, he accused Ross of offering to pay him to lose games. As of yet, Ross has not sued Flores for defamation of character. And heading into training camp, there was no news to the contrary.
