The thing that surprised me most in the Panthers’ 23-3 win at San Francisco was how well rookie Christian McCaffrey adjusted his pass route on a Cam Newton scramble and made the reception for a first down. I knew he excelled at running routes but McCaffrey adjusted on the fly like a 10-year veteran.
It had everyone healthy heading into the game, so injuries weren’t going to be an issue, but the Cardinals, starting with Carson Palmer, just couldn’t move the ball like they’ve been able to in the past and couldn’t score in the red zone, scoring touchdowns in two of four trips inside the 20. The Cardinals had 309 total yards of offense including just 46 yards rushing. With the personnel on Arizona’s offense, the performance they produced was not expected.
Allen Robinson, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: Robinson left the game after suffering a left knee injury on the third play. Robinson caught a 17-yard pass from Blake Bortles on third-and-2 to convert the first down, but he was unable to walk to the sideline and was immediately attended to by Jaguars medical staff. Robinson eventually walked off the field and was taken to locker room to undergo further tests. He was subsequently ruled out.
