Panthers' Christian McCaffrey breaks free for longest run of NFL career

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey bounced back from a tough Week 2 and picked up the bulk of his yards on one run Sunday afternoon, a 76-yard dash up the middle against the Arizona Cardinals.

His previous longest came last year, a 59-yarder against the Seahawks. He didn't score on that one, but extended the Panthers' lead in the third quarter on this one, in which he hit a max speed of 21.0 mph, the second-fastest he's run as a ball carrier in his career, per NFL Next Gen Stats.
