|By Marc Lawrence — It would be in the 49ers’ best interest to play keep away from the Chiefs and limit their possessions. Running back Raheem Mostert leads a balanced rushing attack for San Francisco. Along with Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman, each have posted more than 500 rushing yards this season and have been very effective at different points. The 49ers also have the ability to run out of many different formations to keep opposing defenses off-balance, and they do a great job of staying patient with the ground game even when trailing. The running game will end up opening things for Jimmy Garoppolo to go to work from the pocket and get the ball in the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle through play-action passes. San Francisco leads the league in running back rushing yards, as they ran the ball 427 (2nd) times for 2,051 yards (1st). Their 4.8 yards per carry ranked fifth and their 19 rushing touchdown were first. They were a dominate rushing team. The 49ers led the NFL with an average of 6.7 yards on first-down plays. Having to convert first downs in 2nd and 3.3 yards to go situations is what put the Niners into this game. To read more on why San Francisco will win Super Bowl LIV click here.|
