(NBC News) After the first quarter, Solomon Fletcher was given a game ball by the Panthers and brought onto the field into the end zone. That’s when his dad, petty officer third class David Fletcher, popped out of the sleigh to surprise his son. The father-son duo is reunited after six months apart. Wide-eyed Solomon jumped into the arms of his father, hugging him, and waved to the crowd.
As for the game… the panthers lost to the falcons 33-16.
