Carolina Panthers fans are rightfully excited after their team advanced to Super Bowl 50 with a convincing win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

But one Panthers fan became perhaps a bit too excited late in Carolina's victory in Charlotte.

In the fourth quarter of the Cards' loss, Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly returned an interception for a touchdown to add an exclamation point to his team's win.

Kuechly went on to celebrate the score with Carolina fans, but stopped the celebration when he saw one over-exuberant fan fall from the stands and on to the field.

The fan was apparently OK, as the Panthers' Pro Bowl linebacker helped him to his feet.

And if the fan had any bumps or bruises, his team's 49-15 trouncing of the Cards probably helped take the edge off.
