San Francisco 49ers @ Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. on Fox.
Your Miami Dolphins are involved in a hot, sexy three-way with the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, but no one can decide who's going to be on top ... of the AFC East division. The menage-a-trois may very well climax when Miami meet the Jets in the last game of the regular season, but our Fins have to finish off two other teams before we get there.
Enter the 49ers. They surprisingly beat the Jets last week, which helped elevate Miami to first place. After two weeks on the road, the Fins will return home, and most odds makers have them as the favorites. If they prove victorious, they'll have only the lowly Kansas City Chiefs and the match against the Jets standing in their way of the playoffs, regardless of what the other teams do.
