There are those moments when game recognizes game, and then there's this moment that will tug at the heartstrings.

Following the 49ers' 31-20 loss to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, opposing running backs Raheem Mostert and Damien Williams shared a moment with one another.

Mostert, appearing to be emotional, was embraced by Williams and the two exchanged jerseys, a surefire sign of respect among athletes.

Mostert finished the game with 12 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown, while Williams exploded for 104 yards on the ground with a score and added 29 receiving yards, including the go-ahead touchdown.

Williams got his first chance in 2014 with the Miami Dolphins after signing as an undrafted free agent, and still gives the team props for giving him that chance, even after he eventually landed on the Chiefs.

It's a similar story for Mostert, who went undrafted around the same time. Mostert eventually would get signed by the Eagles back in 2015, but was waived and cut numerous times throughout his career. That was until he became a bright light on an even brighter season with the 49ers.

Williams could have walked into the locker room to celebrate with his teammates immediately once the confetti fell to the ground, but he gave a moment to hug Mostert, who was doing his best to keep his head up after a devastating loss.

That, despite everything else, is exactly what it's all about.
