A statement was made by the 49ers against the Dolphins.

That statement was that the defense can perform at a high level against playoff-caliber offenses.

17 points is all the 49ers allowed against the sixth-highest-scoring offense in the league

An incredible performance from the 49ers defense after giving up an opening-play touchdown.

Nick Bosa made a statement himself with how dominant he was

Three sacks, the final one being the icer for the game, is what he tallied on Tua Tagovailoa.

Bosa now leads the league in sacks with 14.5 and he far from finished.

Bosa is a leading force for the league's best defense. He should be heavily considered for the Defensive Player of the Year award.

And if he continues to build upon his performance against Miami, then I see no way that he doesn't deserve to win it.
