Though this past Panther season was full of great plays during a 12-4 season for me it's this play because I saw it live. Unfortunately I don't get to attend as many Panther games as I would like but I did make it to one last season. On the very first play of the Panthers home game against the Rams CB Captain Munnerlyn started the game off perfectly.
Carolina Panthers' most memorable plays of 2013: No. 10 - ESPN
No. 10 The play: (Oct. 20) Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn intercepts a Sam Bradford pass on the game's first offensive play and returns it 45 yards for a touchdown.
Here's how it looked live for those of us in attendance:
Just an awesome play by Munny recognizing the short pass so quickly, reeling it in and then jitterbugging down the sideline for the pick 6. The icing on the cake came later when I was flipped off by Chris Long (along with every other Panther fan booing him) as he was ejected subsequent to the scuffle in this video:
I love several things in this clip:
First how the Panthers immediately disperse in glee once the flags finally fly.
Second Chris Scott's dance after the aforementioned flags fly.
Third is Cam Newton walking down the field firing up the fan base as the refs sort it out.
I know there is a GIF out there of Long actually displaying the middle finger but ran out time looking for it. I know the CSR membership will pick me up on that so check the comment thread for the GIF or video link.

I look forward to David Newton's count down of top plays. It never gets old revisiting a 12-4 season.
