Christian McCaffrey is off to a scorching start this season. With Cam Newton sidelined, the Carolina Panthers running back has carried the freight and then some in his absence. Through five weeks, he’s gained 866 total yards, trailing only Jim Brown for the most in NFL history since 1950. McCaffrey’s performance has started the MVP buzz. Adrian Peterson was last non-QB to win the award in 2012, but SI Now’s Amy Campbell and Ryan Asselta discuss if this is the year McCaffrey bucks the MVP-QB trend.
