The San Francisco 49ers are hoping for a different result when they meet the Kansas City Chiefs once again in a Super Bowl. These sides squared off in Super Bowl 54, with the Chiefs winning 31-20. However, the 49ers have one major difference this time around which they believe can shift the outcome substantially.
Running back Christian McCaffrey did not play in Super Bowl 54, but he’s ready to go for Super Bowl 58 on Sunday. The 49ers star racked up 1,459 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns this season, adding 564 yards and seven receiving touchdowns as well. He’s a superstar in every sense of the word and has been the engine of this offense. There were only three games all season where he did not find the endzone.
We’re tracking McCaffrey’s performance in Super Bowl 58 below, highlighting big moments and noting his prop bets.

McCaffrey had one of the best plays of the first drive of overtime for the 49ers, registering 24 yards on a key pass play to set up San Francisco in the redzone. A touchdown doesn’t win the game for San Francisco but it would force Patrick Mahomes to go all the way down the field to match in overtime.
We’ve got a touchdown! McCaffrey finds the endzone on a trick play, getting the second pass on a double pass play from Jauan Jennings and scampering for the score. The 49ers are now up 10-0 on the Chiefs in the second quarter. Anytime touchdown hits for CMC, as well as the first TD scorer at +380.
