San Francisco, California — It was a wild night for the Miami Dolphins.
They won 23-17 over the Miami 49ers in overtime at Levi’s Stadium, giving the Dolphins a 17-3 victory in overtime on Sunday night.
This is Miami’s first victory over the 49ers since the 2009 season opener in Miami.
After the game, Joe Philbin said it was an emotional night for him and his team.
He said he wants to go out there and win for the city.
“It’s not the end of the world.
We’re not going to rest, we’ve still got a long way to go.” “
I know the fans will support us, but we have to go play the games.
We’re not going to rest, we’ve still got a long way to go.”
The Dolphins (8-6) have won five straight against the 49er (5-7) and have won four straight at Levis Stadium.
After Sunday’s game, the Dolphins have won nine straight at home against San Francisco and are 9-1 this season when playing in Levis.
They have scored at least 250 yards in three of the past four games and have scored touchdowns in three straight home games.
The Dolphins have scored more than 300 yards in two of their past three games.
After Miami won its first game in San Francisco since the 2016 season opener at Candlestick Park, it lost its first home game at Levi Stadium on Oct. 15, 2016, 28-17.
This time, it won its second game of the season, 34-31.
It was the Dolphins second win in three games at Levi stadium since the start of the 2016 regular season.
“The energy and the passion of the crowd is unreal.
I think it’s just unbelievable,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill said.
“We just have to keep winning and we have a great group of players and great coaches.
They’re really going to help us.
We can’t give up on that and we want to keep on winning.
We have to win every game.”
San Francisco held a 17.6-point lead after the first quarter before losing to the Baltimore Ravens.
The 49ers took over after a 3-yard penalty on the first play of overtime for a 10-yard loss.
“This was a huge opportunity to go up and score and then they missed the extra point,” defensive end Mario Williams said.
The Raiders outgained Miami 396-253 in the second half and scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter to take a 24-20 lead.
The game was decided on a botched field goal attempt by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
After a pair of interceptions by Kaepernick, the 49, led 29-14 at halftime.
The San Francisco defense forced four turnovers in the fourth quarter, including a fumble by cornerback Chris Culliver that was returned by Kaepernick.
The defense led 31-20 in the final minute, when the 49s were penalized for a holding penalty on Kaepernick.
“That was the big game for us.
They took us to overtime and it wasn’t good for us, so we kind of got frustrated and then came back and we made some plays and they made some big plays,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said.
San Jose’s defense made the biggest play of the night when linebacker Jarrad Davis intercepted a pass by quarterback Colin Smith at the 2-yard line.
The ball bounced into the arms of tight end Vernon Davis, who raced up the middle and beat Smith for a touchdown that cut the 49-24 lead to 28-20.
Davis finished with 10 tackles and two passes defended.
The Jaguars lost for the third time in four games, losing to Seattle 38-13.
San Diego was coming off a 48-36 win at Oakland on Monday night.
The Chargers have won three straight at Los Angeles.
The first of those games was the first game at home for Philip Rivers since he became the Chargers quarterback in December.
“You look at how hard they worked.
They were playing with their heads down and they played with their feet.
That’s the difference between the old school way and the new school way.
They played hard,” San Diego coach Mike McCoy said.
This was the Chargers’ first loss of the year at Levi, their third straight loss at home.
The last time the Chargers lost in San Jose was Nov. 22, 2008, a 28-24 loss.
San Antonio had won the last four meetings with the 49ERS, including last season, when Philip Rivers had six touchdown passes and no interceptions.
The teams last meeting was a 38-35 overtime loss at Candlemack Park in November 2016.
The Saints and 49ers had played each other twice before.
The Vikings had won five of six in San Diego before a 41-38 win in Minnesota on Oct 16
