The Carolina Panthers were cruising towards a win on Sunday in fourth quarter riding on line backer Luke Kuechly’s heroics. A fan fell from the stands as the crowd erupted in wild celebrations to reach out to Kuechly.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer’s pass was intercepted by Luke Kuechly before it was scored 22 yards for a touchdown. The score gave the Panthers a 34-point lead over the Arizona Cardinals. This sparked celebrations, but then a Panthers’ fan tumbled from the stands into the field. He didn’t land softly.
But he got up steadily and didn’t appear to be injured. Finally, he accomplished his mission of having a brief chat with Kuechly. Let’s hope the guy is fine.
The Panthers won convincingly to advance to the Super Bowl. Carolina will now meet the Denver Broncos.
This shows that the Panthers’ fan base is as geared up as their players. And why not? They are in the Superbowl for the first time since 2004. Check out a glimpse of the madness in the video below.
