On Thursday night, no Carolina Panthers player performed as well as second-year linebacker Luke Kuechly.
The rising star stole the show by forcing a fumble that was returned for a touchdown and also intercepting Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
Here is some of the top Twitter reaction to Kuechly’s big night:
I know it's preseason, but Luke Kuechly is playing like HIS job is on the line.. Dude is all over the place tonight

First time I've seen Carolina LB Luke Kuechly play in person. That kid is a fabulous player.

BOLD WORDS: “When I watch tape it looks like Luke Kuechly makes every single tackle. I believe he could be the next Brian Urlacher.” -Gruden
