Unfortunately for Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young, his first career interception came before his first career touchdown pass. But the fact that the latter quickly succeeded the former made his score all the more impressive.
Young, just two possessions after the pick, found tight end Hayden Hurst on a 4-yard connection to help knot the game up at 7-7. He completed all six of his passes for 51 yards on the 12-play, 75-trek.
