McCaffrey, Kamara figure to play key roles on Monday night

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) There's been no such thing as a sophomore slump for Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara.

The two NFC South running backs have followed up strong rookie campaigns with even better second seasons for the Panthers and Saints, who'll meet Monday night in a game with big playoff ramifications for both teams.

McCaffrey has 926 yards rushing and 701 yards receiving. He has a chance to join Roger Craig and Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk as the only running backs in NFL history to post 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season.
