Thanks largely to running back Christian McCaffrey, the Carolina Panthers offense got on the board early on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.


McCaffrey rushed for 40 yards on five carries on the opening drive. His sixth touch was 20-yard reception for a touchdown.

The touchdown was historic for the second-year running back.

Twitter took notice of McCaffrey’s dominance.

It was definitely the start that McCaffrey and Carolina were looking for in this one.
