McCaffery, Kamara careers converge in Saints-Panthers clash

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Carolina's Christian McCaffrey and New Orleans' Alvin Kamara are in the infancy of NFL careers that are set to run along similar tracks in the same division for years to come.

The convergence of the running backs' paths comes into focus Sunday, when the Saints visit the Panthers in NFC South play.

"There are a lot of similarities," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said this week. "Both have good hands - good runners, good vision, cutback ability, stuff like that."
