Newton’s first touchdown with the Patriots served as the opening score in New England’s Week 1 clash with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. Less than two minutes into the second quarter at Gillette Stadium, Newton took a shotgun snap from Miami’s 4-yard line and jaunted into the end zone untouched. The Patriots’ new starting signal-caller celebrated his first score in New England with a thunderous spike.

Newton also connected with Julian Edelman for the first time on the scoring drive. The 6-yard snag marked the 600th reception of the veteran wide receiver’s career.
