What channel is 49ers vs. Dolphins on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 5 NFL game 1

A pair of teams scrambling to salvage something from the 2020 season meet as Miami travels to Santa Clara to take on an injury-ravaged San Francisco team on Fox.

The 49ers (2-2) sit in last place of the competitive NFC West and are one of a few teams with catastrophic injuries to some of their most important players. San Francisco could again be without Jimmy Garoppolo due to an ankle injury, and would likely go the way of starting C.J. Beathard for the first time this season. Nick Mullens got the start in Week 4 but was pulled following a costly pick-six to Philadelphia in the fourth quarter. Beathard stepped in nicely, passing for 138 yards on 14-of-19 passing.

The Dolphins (1-3) are on the verge of falling out of playoff contention this early in the season, but are sticking with veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for the time being, despite public calls for first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa to start. It may not require a superstar quarterback to beat the Dolphins, as Miami is allowing the highest yards per pass (9.3) and most yards per play (6.6) of any team in the league.

Despite the injuries, San Francisco opened as a heavy favorite and has beaten Miami in three of the last four meetings.
