SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns and the Miami Dolphins sent the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers to a 43-17 loss.

Fitzpatrick connected on a 3-yard TD pass to Adam Shaheen on the opening drive of the game for the Dolphins and didn’t let up. He quieted talk for at least another week that rookie Tua Tagovailoa should take over as starter.

The 49ers are the team with questions at quarterback after Jimmy Garoppolo got pulled at halftime after throwing two interceptions.

San Francisco fell to 0-3 at home this season.
