Curtis Samuel put his versatility on full display during the first half of Thursday night's game between the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons.

In the first quarter of Thursday night's game, the former Ohio State H-back lined up at running back and ran for a 12-yard touchdown, marking the second consecutive week that Samuel has rushed for a touchdown from the running back spot.

Early in the second quarter, Samuel found the end zone for a second time – this time as a receiver – by catching a deep ball on a flea-flicker pass from Teddy Bridgewater for a 29-yard receiving touchdown.

At halftime of Thursday night's game, Samuel had three total carries for 23 yards and two total catches for 32 yards as the Panthers trailed the Falcons, 16-14.
