The Miami Dolphins beat the San Francisco 49ers in a Week 12 meeting, coming away with the 31-24 victory. The offense was the story of the game, however, as the defense struggled to slow Colin Kaepernick and Carlos Hyde, especially on the ground. At the end, it came down to the defense making one play to end the game, with Ndamukong Suh and Kiko Alonso coming up with the game-ending tackle at the Miami two-yard line as the clock expired.

Every week, we take a look back at the Dolphins’ most recent game from the view point of the snaps played by each player. Earlier this morning with the offense, we took a look at the offense. Now, we turn to the defense and look at how many snaps every player who played at least one defensive snap took, as well as the percentage of the game they played. We then add that to the season totals, presenting the percentage of the season every player has played.
