Packers prepare for "C-Mac Attack"

McCaffrey (right) has 13 total TDs this season.

They call it a "C-Mac Attack" in North Carolina. That's what happens when Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey terrorizes opposing defenses. The third-year back leads the NFL with 110 rushing yards per game, and he's second with 881 rush yards.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said he doesn't want a lack of run defense to be used as the blueprint to beat them, so there will be extra attention paid to McCaffrey this weekend.

"I think he's been hard to handle since he got in this league," LaFleur said. "He's just a complete back. He can do it as a rusher. He can do it as a receiver. He does a great job in protection. Total package. Just a really good back."

The Packers are giving up 127.7 rushing yards per game this season, good for 24th in the league.
