The San Francisco 49ers have killed teams on the ground all season and we should expect them to attempt the same in Super Bowl 54 against the Kansas City Chiefs. For the most part, the Niners have employed a three-headed monster of Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida for most of the season. Coleman and Breida have had their moments in 2019, but Mostert has been the back who has really thrived.
Mostert single-handedly dismantled the Green Bay Packers defense in the NFC Championship, rushing for 220 yards and four TDs on 29 attempts. He wasn’t very involved in the passing game, however. But in the divisional round against the Minnesota Vikings, you’d think Mostert was a completely different back. The Niners rode Coleman for most of the game with Mostert mixing in, rushing for 58 yards on 12 carries. So it’s sort of “The Tale of Two Games” with Mostert in the playoffs. Can we find some middle ground in the Super Bowl? Or will Mostert take off again?
Super Bowl 54 fourth quarter recap
Mostert stepped into the spotlight when Coleman was phased out of the running game down the stretch. However, he wasn’t nearly as spectacular as he was in the NFC title game. Mostert finished with 12 carries for 58 yards and a score while also hauling in one reception for two yards. Despite the sportsbook’s lofty expectations, he fell short on all his prop bets.
Super Bowl 54 third quarter recap
Mostert tallied three more carries in the third quarter, bringing his total to 29 yards. He recorded a touchdown on a goal line run, and his odds to score were one were -155. A this point the only other prop bet he has a chance at hitting is scoring the last touchdown of the game (+650).
Super Bowl 54 second quarter recap
Mostert finally got on the stat sheet with some carries in the second quarter. He had his number called five times and converted those chances into 26 yards. He passed up Coleman (24) in ground yardage, but there’s not telling who takes the lead the rest of the way.
Super Bowl 54 first quarter recap
Mostert surprisingly took a backseat to Coleman in the first quarter of the contest. He didn’t receive a carry during the 49ers’ first drive but hauled in a two-yard reception. Kansas City ran out the clock in the back half of the first quarter, so he didn’t get a single attempt before time expired in the first frame. he fell short on his first quarter rushing over (18.5), and the chances of him hitting rest of his prop bets look low for now.
