Gains 71 yards on 20 touches
Mitchell rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught three of four targets for 18 more yards in Saturday's 13-10 playoff win over the Packers.
The 49ers ran the ball early and often, but the Packers' defensive front was ready for that exact gameplan, leaving Mitchell with an inefficient rushing performance. The talented rookie finished second among both team's position players with 20 total touches, which helped him put together a respectable 71 total yards of offense despite the low efficiency. Those looking to roll with Mitchell in the championship round won't find much of a soft matchup against either the Bucs or Rams, who both boast talented defensive lines. That said, Mitchell should safely clear 15 carries regardless of opponent next Sunday, a feat the back has accomplished in seven consecutive contests.
