Christian McCaffrey has 20 catches in two games, including 14 against Atlanta to tie Steve Smith's single-game record for the most in Carolina history. The total also tied for the most by a running back in a single game in the last 37 seasons (since 1981). McCaffrey's one target he didn't catch against Atlanta was a throwaway by Cam Newton. If he maintains this pace McCaffrey will destroy the league's single-season record for catches by a running back. Matt Forte caught 102 passes at Chicago in 2014.

Atlanta Falcons

Really was impressed on that touchdown drive with the way Cam Newton maintained his poise and got rid of the ball, particularly after the shot to the head. He's now 7-for-10 for 55 yards and a touchdown. Have seen numerous times in the past where a quarterback draw would have been called on that third-and-goal play from the five. The way Newton trusted his line and found Jarius Wright open up the middle was a step in the right direction for what offensive coordinator Norv Turner wants.

They handled that the right way, and I believe Torrey handled it the right way, too, even if he gets a fine. He definitely handled it the right way trying to take care of his teammates.’’

Falcons safety Damontae Kazee should be tossed out of the game, and he is. He hit a sliding Cam Newton squarely in the helmet. Newton goes into the tent for evaluation of concussion. He comes out and is putting helmet back on and warming up so all looks good. Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith also gets a personal foul penalty for taking a swing at Kazee. Could have been much uglier.

Considering how dire the Panthers' situation on the offensive line was due to injuries the first half was a success despite a 17-10 deficit. Credit Norv Turner's game plan that Cam Newton executed well with a lot of play-action and dump-off passes to Christian McCaffrey, who had six catches for 47 yards. Carolina will need more of that in the second half to keep the Atlanta pass rush off Newton and keep pace with the Falcons who are starting to get their explosive passing game on track, particularly in the red zone where they struggled a week ago.
