The San Francisco 49ers have are expected to use the ground game as their primary weapon against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Their options include Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman — who have each reached the century mark in a game this season. Matt Breida is a wild card though and will be the 49ers’ third back.
Breida has rushed for more than 100 yards in a game twice this year, but has only reached the end zone twice — despite racking up 643 yards on the ground. He hasn’t reached double-digits in carries since Week 10. But if Tevin Coleman struggles in his return from a dislocated shoulder, Breida could be bumped up to a backup spot.
Breida averaged 5.1 yards per carry during the regular season, but that figure has dropped to just over two yards per carry in the postseason. We’ll be tracking his performance and prop bet progress for Super Bowl 54 here.
