SCORES FIRST NFL TOUCHDOWN IN MOTOR CITY McCaffrey has scored a bundle of touchdowns in countless ways throughout his short NFL career. His first touchdown came via a perfectly executed six-yard shovel pass fromCam Newton that he took and ran into the end zone untouched at Ford Field in Detroit while defenders grabbed nothing but air on the play. With McCaffrey lining up just outside the right tackle, Newton took the snap and ran to his left, but instead of pitching the ball on the option to Jonathan Stewart, he flicked the ball toMcCaffrey, who sliced through the heart of the Detroit defense and into the end zone. The early second quarter score pulled the Panthers evenwith the Lions 10–10 in a game theywouldwin 27–24 to raise their record to

4–1. The scoring play was one of fivepasses McCaffreywould grab that afternoonamong seven targets for 31 yards. He would go on to catch four more touchdown passes during his rookie season and a l so score a pair of rushing touchdowns.
