Updated score: Panthers top Jaguars 16-10 for Newton's first win.

The beginning of an era starts today.

Blaine Gabbert, the Jacksonville Jaguars' first-round selection in April's draft, will see his first start today against the Carolina Panthers.

Gabbert takes over for an ineffective Luke McCown, who registered a quarterback rating of 1.8 while throwing four interceptions last week against the Jets.

The Panthers are led by the sensational Cam Newton, Carolina's rookie quarterback, who was selected first overall in the 2011 NFL draft.

In his first two starts, Newton has the Panthers appearing to be on the verge of becoming a contender. Having thrown for more than 800 yards in Week 1 and Week 2 combined, Newton seeks to get his first professional win today in his inaugural home game.

Enjoy the beginning a new era, everyone. Today's game should be a great one.
