Raheem Mostert had the performance of a lifetime on Sunday. The San Francisco running back made NFL history in the 49ers’ victory over the Green Bay Packers, clinching a Super Bowl berth.
Mostert rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns in San Francisco’s 37-20 victory over Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. According to NFL Research, he became the first player in history to rush for over 200 yards and score four rushing touchdowns in a playoff game.

Mostert’s success this postseason has been somewhat unprecedented. A former running back/wide receiver at Purdue, he went undrafted in 2015 and has bounced around the league before finding a home in San Francisco. This is his seventh team in five years.
During the regular season, Mostert took 137 carries for 772 yards and eight touchdowns, all career highs for the former Boilermaker. He also hauled in 14 receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns.
Thanks to Mostert’s big performance against Green Bay, the 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl, where they’ll play the Kansas City Chiefs.R
