Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young throws first touchdown pass of NFL career

The first touchdown pass of Bryce Young's career has been recorded.

The No. 1 overall draft decision connected with Hayden Hurst on a 4-yard play action pass to the right flat with 5:09 remaining in the first half.

This touchdown, scored on Carolina's fourth possession, tied the Panthers' season-opening game against the Atlanta Falcons at 7.

The play capped a 7:18-long drive that included 12 plays for 75 yards.

Young's passing stats at the time of the touchdown were respectable: 10-of-13 for 86 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.

It was also the first touchdown for South Carolina native and tight end Hurst.

Young's day began on a positive note prior to that excursion. On the team's first possession, Young directed an 11-play, 48-yard drive that began at the Carolina 40-yard line.

It ended at the 11-yard line after the Falcons stopped Chuba Hubbard's fourth-and-1 rush attempt.
