Christian McCaffrey is fitting into San Francisco’s offense just fine.

Acquired via trade last week, McCaffrey took in a 1-yard rushing touchdown early in the fourth quarter to extend the 49ers lead over the Rams to 24-14.

It was McCaffrey’s third touchdown of the game, his first for San Francisco running it in. But that touchdown also gave McCaffrey a rushing, receiving, and passing touchdown in the contest. He’s the first player to accomplish that feat in the same game since Hall of Famer LaDanian Tomlinson did it for the Chargers back in 2005.

McCaffrey tossed a 34-yard touchdown to receiver Brandon Aiyuk early in the second quarter. He elevated to catch a 9-yard touchdown pass late in the third period, which gave the 49ers a 17–14 lead.

Early in the fourth quarter, McCaffrey has 12 carries for 78 yards plus eight carries for 55 yards.

  1. This game is becoming like some NBA games we have witnessed. Officials need to stand up.

    He’s been huge for the 9ER offense. Well worth the picks traded for him
    ====================

    4 picks to beat the Rams who you beat every time you play?

    Are you Denver’s GM?

  3. Getting McCaffrey was an absolutely brilliant move by the 49ers. As for the Rams….how’s that whole “dynasty” working out? Gifted a Super Bowl by the refs, can’t get fans in the seats, owner is a crook (trying to get 31 other owners to pay – literally – for HIS move), and the future has been mortgaged. But at least Aaron “Steroid Poster Boy” hasn’t choked anybody or swung helmets at anybody…yet.

  4. Where are all the haters that were saying the Niners gave up too much and that CMC was washed up? He was the entire offense today.

  5. Triple threat! Love it! I know people in Charlotte were sad to lose him but he will be better off in CA.
