Newton scores first TD with Pats, pays tribute to Chadwick Boseman


Cam Newton in a Patriots uniform may look strange, but seeing him run into the end zone for a touchdown still looks as good as ever.

In the second quarter of New England's Week 1 matchup with the Miami Dolphins, Newton took the snap on a designed quarterback run and scampered in for his first score as a member of his new team.

Newton then celebrated by making the "Wakanda Forever" symbol with his arms. The gesture comes from the movie Black Panther and was most likely a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman, who played the Black Panther in the Marvel movies, died on August 28 after a battle with cancer. Numerous sports figures have since honored the talented and inspirational actor.

The Cam Newton era has officially begun in New England, and it has gotten off to a good start.
