The honor of the first 49ers touchdown in the 2020 NFL season belongs to running back Raheem Mostert.
Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hit Mostert in stride on 1st-and-10 with 9:53 remaining in the first quarter, and it was off to the races for the speedster. Mostert ran right by Arizona Cardinals first-round draft pick Isaiah Simmons in his route and went untouched for a 76-yard touchdown.
The score gave the 49ers a 9-0 lead. A Robbie Gould extra point made it 10-0.
Mostert's touchdown was eerily similar to running back Jeff Wilson Jr.'s game-winner against the Cardinals last season at Levi's Stadium. While Wilson's TD came out of a different formation and had him beating a defensive end instead of a linebacker, it was the exact same route. If it's not broke, don't fix it.
Mostert broke out for the 49ers last season, and plans to build off that with a new contract. This was the exact start coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers were hoping for.
