Watch Cam's first TD (and celebration) with Pats

Looks like Cam Newton's legs still work.

The Patriots quarterback found the end zone early in the second quarter of his New England debut, cruising for a 4-yard touchdown on a designed run to the right side against the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.

Newton's score was the 59th rushing touchdown of his career, which is the most by a quarterback in NFL history.

The QB followed the TD with a great celebration, too, paying homage to late "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman with a "Wakanda Forever" salute before unleashing a massive spike that Rob Gronkowski would be proud of.

Newton's easy TD run also gave Newton 26 rushing yards on just four attempts at the time, as the 31-year-old QB rumbled for a 17-yard gain on his first rush as a Patriot.

It's safe to say this offense will look very different than it has for the last two decades with Tom Brady under center.

UPDATE (2:40 p.m. ET): Newton is off and running in New England.

The Patriots QB added a second rushing touchdown in the third quarter with this 11-yard dash to the right pylon:

This is Newton's seventh regular season game with at least two rushing TDs.
