When are San Francisco going to catch a break? The Niners have arguably done quite well to make it to Week 5 with a 2-2 record considering the state of their injury list, but after today’s clash with the Dolphins their schedule is looking very, very rough, with big-hitter after big-hitter after big-hitter right on the horizon. That makes this a must-win for Kyle Shanahan’s charges, because things aren’t getting easier anytime soon. You can follow our guide as we explain where to find a Dolphins vs 49ers live stream and watch all the NFL action online wherever you are.
Last season’s NFC West division winners are currently languishing at the bottom of the standings, and if he isn’t already concerned about the 49ers’ playoff prospects, head coach Shanahan may well be sweating before too long.
Miami Dolphins vs San Francisco 49ers live stream
The Dolphins vs 49ers game kicks off at 4.05pm ET/1.05pm PT (9.05pm BST) at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Full NFL live streaming and TV channel details are below – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere with this 100% risk-free ExpressVPN trial.
They need Jimmy Garoppolo back. In the two games he’s missed they’ve used Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard. Mullens did well in their win against the Giants but was way off beat in last week’s Eagles game, so much so that he was hooked for Beathard who did much better, and could well start today if Garoppolo isn’t quite ready.
The Dolphins have their own quarterback conundrum, though Brian Flores has said it’s not Tua Tagovailoa time yet. Flores is backing Ryan Fitzpatrick for Week 5, and the veteran signal-caller knows more than anyone that he needs to do much better than he did in the Dolphins’ loss against the Seahawks, a game they might have won if it hadn’t been for the two interceptions he threw.
On the whole the ‘Phins put in a very promising showing against Seattle, who were bailed out late on by the Russell Wilson show. If they can get Fitzpatrick firing again, this could well be Miami’s day. Read on as we explain how to watch the Dolphins vs 49ers online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are right now.
How to watch the Dolphins vs 49ers from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from outside your country – or if you’re trying to get around dreaded blackouts – then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.

Should I buy an NFL Game Pass?
Watching NFL online has never been easier thanks to the wide variety of streaming services now available. However, the league also has its own streaming service called the NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game.
It’s really geared towards international fans and that’s where it’s a great option. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a Game Pass Pro subscription will get you access to every single regular season and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl, and you also get the league’s live highlights show, RedZone. It costs £14.99 a week or £143.99 a year, so if you’re a big fan who watches multiple games every week, it breaks down quite favourably.
As well as the UK and Ireland, the service is available in countries like Mexico, Germany and most of Europe, and Australia – with only ‘domestic markets’ the US and Canada missing out on the full-fat offering.
Instead, there’s a US and Canada-only Game Pass option available for $99 a a year that lets you watch commercial-free full game replays right after they’ve finished. Not the worst offer we’ve ever heard, but don’t get caught out – GamePass does not offer live NFL games in the US or Canada.
Should you decide to give Game Pass a shot, apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4, and more – plus you can obviously watch on your laptop or desktop computer through a browser.
The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) are that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay TV providers (e.g. Sky).
