The Splash Zone 11/28/16: Dolphins Hang On To Defeat The 49ers

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

It wasn't pretty and the game may have taken off a few years of my life. Was hoping for a blowout but I wasn't surprised when it happened the way it did.

The Dolphins will face the Baltimore Ravens next week.
