Devin Funchess gives game ball to mother of fallen soldier

Catches pair of touchdowns versus Dolphins

Panthers WR Devin Funchess kept a promise to a fallen soldier's mom on Monday night

But there was none of that Monday night after Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess scored his first of two touchdowns in a 45-21 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Funchess and his teammates spent some time after the team's practice on Sunday with the families of veterans who have lost their lives. He met the mother of Dillon Baldridge, who served in the Army. "He was a top-notch shooter - he was a sniper".

"Dillon Baldridge", Funchess said after the game.

"It was an honor just to get in the end zone for her". But he wanted to do something more to honor Baldridge's memory.

Funchess has been stellar in two games since the Panthers traded Kelvin Benjamin, catching 10 of 13 targets for 178 yards and two scores.

On a joyful night at Bank of America Stadium, Funchess made sure that joy got spread to Baldridge's family, especially his mother.
