The top beneficiary during Cam Newton's four-touchdown pass night, Devin Funchess made good on a promise he made to the mother of a fallen soldier. The receiver hauled in two touchdown scores to help the Carolina Panthers win in blowout fashion.

Funchess, who wore the initials "D.B." on his helmet, promised Baldridge's mother after practice on Sunday that he'd find a way into the end zone.

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 Monday, Funchess flipped the script and gave the ball to a family still reeling from the loss of Army Sgt. Dillon Baldridge.

"Dillon Baldridge", Funchess said after the game. Funchess said. "His mom said he was the most joyful boy you'd ever meet". Just five months ago, he passed away.
