Takeaways:

  • Quinton Patton (26 snaps) left the game early with a concussion and did not return. That opened the door for Rod Streater (44 snaps) to see the field more than he has all season. Streater's extra playing time resulted in four receptions for 46 yards, both season highs. His 25-yard reception in the second half was his longest catch since 2013.
  • When it was announced that Quinton Dial (knee) would miss Sunday's game, Tony Jerod-Eddie was listed as his replacement in the starting lineup. Instead, it was Chris Jones who started at defensive tackle for the 49ers. Jones played 27 snaps and recorded two tackles. Jones ended up being San Francisco's top-ranked defender according to Pro Football Focus with a grade of 77.9. He was a part of the defensive front that helped limit Jay Ajayi to just 45 yards on 18 carries. Jerod-Eddie received two defensive reps.
  • Jaquiski Tartt played 48 snaps in his first start of 2016 in place of the injured Eric Reid (bicep). Vinnie Sunseri, who the team called up last week from the practice squad, played two snaps.
  • Jim O'Neil is continuing to integrate Ronald Blair III into his defense. The rookie defensive lineman was on the field for 30 snaps in Miami and recorded his first career full sack.
  • Torrey Smith returned from his one-game absence and received a full workload of 66 snaps, the most among 49ers wideouts.
  • Chip Kelly continues to roll with the hot hand in regards to his No. 2 running back behind Pierre Garçon. DuJuan Harris had taken over the role in recent weeks, but it was Shaun Draughn who saw a bulk of the backup duty on Sunday. Draughn was effective through the air with a team-high six receptions for 49 yards. He played 24 snaps to Harris' four.
