49ers beat Rams with three TDs from Christian McCaffrey

McCaffrey became the first player to record passing, running and receiving touchdowns in the same game since 2005. The last to achieve those statistics was LaDainian Tomlinson with the San Diego Chargers against the Oakland Raiders.

Since the NFL came together in 1970, only three RBs have had such a series of statistics. In addition to McCaffrey and Tomlinson, Walter Payton he did it in 1979 when the Chicago Bears lost to the Minnesota Vikings.

The running back alumnus of Stanford amassed 34 yards by pass by completing the only send you tried, 94 yards and a touchdown on the ground after 18 carries and 55 yards with a TD after catching eight of nine throws that Jimmy Garoppolo (21/25, 235 yards) sent in his direction.
