Coming back from injury in 2021, Christian McCaffrey put up over 180 offensive yards as the franchise player of Carolina Panthers carried his team to a win against the New York Jets. It was an announcement game as well as a reminder that the star has not missed a step. And supporting from the stands, as always, was his girlfriend Olivia Culpo, a relationship that has lasted for over 2 years in 2021.
