Dolphins Defense Stuffs Kaepernick on Final Play to Hold On for 31-24 Win

Colin Kaepernick drew boos at the start of the game. By the end, he had Dolphins fans holding their breath.

Ndamukong Suh tackled Kaepernick 2 yards short of the goal line as time ran out, and the Dolphins handed the 49ers a franchise-record 10th consecutive loss by winning 31-24 Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill threw for 285 yards and three scores to compensate for an uncharacteristically sluggish Miami ground game.

Kaepernick, who has drawn mixed reactions for kneeling during the national anthem all season, was jeered loudly in the early going for his political views. He threw for 296 yards, ran for 113 and rallied the 49ers after they trailed 31-14 midway through the fourth quarter.

With the margin down to seven, Kaepernick moved the 49ers from their 38 to the 6 in the final 1:44, converting a fourth-and-11 along the way. But he threw incomplete on first down, and then was tackled from behind by the 305-pound Suh while trying to elude linebacker Kiko Alonso on the final play.
