You can only make a first impression, and Cam Newton made a good Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
Newton acted in his Patriots debut. The veteran quarterback completed 15 of 19 passes for 155 yards, but was even more effective with his feet. Newton was the game’s leading crowd with 75 yards, and his two touchdowns on the ground helped New England win 21–11 over the Miami Dolphins.
The three-time Pro Bowl selection did not leave the field even after his strong performance. Newton was at the center of a game-of-the-game skirmish that, according to Star Signal-Caller, was ignited by dolphin players arriving for his series.
After the game, Newton trolled the Finns for their failed attempt.Miami’s antics clearly frustrated Newton at the moment, but we can’t imagine him staying at the spot when the Patriots sealed their week’s win. QB is definitely keeping its focus for the Seattle Seahawks, which will host New England on Sunday night.
