Frank Gore ties Joe Perry and Roger Craig atop San Francisco's all-time rushing touchdowns list.

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore scored his 50th career rushing touchdown in the second half of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, tying a franchise record in the process.

The one-yard touchdown came with 11:21 remaining in the third quarter, breaking a 6-6 stalemate to give the 49ers a 13-6 advantage over their opponents. The score ties Gore with former running backs Joe Perry and Roger Craig as San Francisco's all-time leaders in touchdown runs.

Gore also eclipsed the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the sixth time in his career in Sunday's game. He failed to reach that mark in his rookie season and in 2010, when he missed five games due to injury. Gore entered his game against the Dolphins with his highest yards per carry average (4.9) since the 2009 season, when he put up 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns in 14 contests.
