WATCH: Christian McCaffrey burns Saints with TD pass

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

We’re used to seeing Christian McCaffrey run and receive. But on Monday, he went into more of an unusual role. It worked well for the Carolina Panthers.

Facing a fourth-and-two from midfield, Cam Newton handed the ball to McCaffrey, who appeared stuffed. But McCaffrey pulled up and tossed it to Chris Manhertz, who cruised in for a 50-yard touchdown.

We’d say that this one went pretty well for the Panthers and Ron Rivera, who gamely lived up to his Riverboat Ron moniker.
