Christian McCaffrey has been nothing short of stellar as a 49ers player, but his first half against the Cardinals might very well be his best first half as a pro.
Have yourself a career day, Christian McCaffrey. The San Francisco 49ers certainly aren't going to mind whatsoever.
The Niners aren't taking lightly what's been a plucky Arizona Cardinals team this season, taking the lead 21-10 into halftime in what has been a highly entertaining half if you're a San Francisco fan.

The talented running back has been the focal point of the offense, responsible for all three scores in the first half with two on the ground and another via a reception where he absolutely refused to go down.
McCaffrey has 10 carries for 53 yards and his two touchdowns, and four receptions for 40 yards and his third touchdown with a full half yet to come.
With McCaffrey already breaking one of the records belonging to legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice, could he break a second in the second half? Rice holds the franchise record for most touchdowns in a game with five touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in 1990.
At his current pace, McCaffrey looks set to better it. He certainly could as well, if the Cardinals defense doesn't make some desperate changes after halftime to contain him. One thing is for sure, the 49ers will keep feeding him the ball for as long as it remains effective.
It's been an excellent first half for the 49ers all around, as the team looks to become one of only two teams to start the season with a perfect 4-0 record in the first month.
