Carolina Panthers kick off scoring with pick-six (GIF)

It was all defense early in Week 7 of the regular season, with the first three touchdowns of the day coming from defensive units across the league. One of the big plays came from the Carolina Panthers defense, as defensive back Captain Munnerlyn picked off Sam Bradford and scampered all the way back to the endzone.

Munnerlyn showed off his speed after an early stumble and was able to get to the sideline, make a defender miss and then enter pay dirt.

Here is a GIF of Captain Munnerlyn’s pick-six to get the scoring rolling:

The Rams offense had been rolling recently, but the Panthers defense is a tough test for anyone.

It’s a great start for Carolina and one that they hope to build off of, so look for the team to continue bringing the pressure and attempting to force Bradford into mistakes.

You have to love another Sunday jammed full of NFL sction, so sit back and enjoy the show.
