WATCH: Jonathan Stewart’s fumble turns out just fine for Panthers
It doesn’t get much crazier than what happened on Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart’s third-quarter fumble Sunday against the Buccaneers.
In the midst of a pretty heavy rain in Tampa Bay, Stewart coughed up the ball after breaking in to the secondary. Fortunately, tight end Ed Dickson was there to pick up the pieces.
Not only did Dickson recover the fumble, but he ran it 57 more yards for a score.
Hey, Cam Newton wasn’t hitting Dickson in the passing game, so the veteran tight end went ahead and found another way to get into the end zone.
