  • Aldon Smith had two sacks against the Dolphins Sunday, bringing his league-leading total to 19.5. All of his sacks this season have come when the 49ers have sent four or fewer pass rushers and he has 7.5 sacks more than anybody else with standard pressure.

  • Colin Kaepernick sealed the game with a 50-yard rushing touchdown on a zone-read option, his league-leading fourth option rushing touchdown on 13 option runs this season (all zone-read options).

  • Colin Kaepernick kept it short Sunday, completing 15-of-17 (88.2 percent) passes on throws 10 yards or fewer downfield, his highest completion percentage on such throws in his four starts this season. Kaepernick continues to rely on short passes as his average pass had been thrown 6.7 yards downfield over his last three starts after an average pass length of 10.2 yards in his first career start against the Bears.

  • Aldon Smith: 1st sack of game gave him 18 1/2 for season, surpassing Fred Dean's single-season franchise record of 17 1/2 set in 1983.
