Christian McCaffrey is Putting the 49ers on His Back!


With Brock Purdy sidelined with an elbow injury, the 49ers need a hero if they want to see the Super Bowl in person in two weeks. There’s still plenty of time left in this game, but Christian McCaffrey might be that hero.

McCaffrey delivered the equalizing score on the last San Francisco drive with a 23-yard touchdown!

McCaffrey logged two catches for 18 yards and two rushes for 26 yards, and a touchdown on a 46-yard touchdown drive for the 49ers.

The McCaffrey touchdown tied the game at seven-a-piece midway through the second quarter. Credit to San Francisco’s defense, which has rebounded nicely. After allowing an opening drive touchdown to the Eagles, the 49ers have forced punts on three straight defensive possessions.

McCaffrey has 55 rushing yards, a touchdown on seven carries (7.9 YPC), and 18 receiving yards on two catches in the first half.
