Panthers Luke Kuechly's skill and experience surely helped him get the pick-six against the Seahawks in last Sunday's game, but you may not have known he also had a good luck charm to help him too.
When the linebacker was signing autographs after practice last week, Jackson Griffin gave Kuechly a pinewood derby car. Kuechly offered to sign it and give it back to the young fan, but Griffin insisted he keep it. Kuechly promised to hang it in his locker. Watch the sweet exchange here:
