The San Francisco 49ers open the NFL playoffs with the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, and running back Elijah Mitchell has warned NFC opponents they will be “unstoppable.”

The 49ers ended the regular season strong, dominating the NFC West Division with a 13-4 record. The 49ers have had one of the best defenses in the league for a while, but now that their offense is working, they could be someone to watch.

Star players Deebo Samuel and Christian McAffrey are both finally fit enough to start together and their availability came at the perfect time. And having just scored two touchdowns, Mitchell is confident the 49ers will be the team to watch out for.

Speaking to Mirror Sport ahead of the opening weekend of the playoffs, Mitchell was asked about their chances now that Samuel and McAffrey are finally fit to start together. “The two of you together, man, they’re just all-around defenders so when I bring in what I’ve got, my running style, it’s really just unstoppable.”

The running back scored two touchdowns in his 38-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and is heading into the postseason well. “I feel good, the body feels good.”

“Obviously I’ve got two touchdowns under my belt, but I have to give my boys a lot of love on the edge. They blocked everything so all I have to do is run.”

And of course, Mitchell is certain that with confidence that the 49ers are unstoppable, the 49ers can reach, and maybe even reach, the Super Bowl on February 12th. “Oh yes, definitely, no question.”

One of the major storylines of the 49ers season was the rise of Brock Purdy, as the rookie quarterback will now lead them into the postseason. Purdy was the last pick of the entire 2022 draft but has won every start he’s been given and could become an instant franchise legend.
