It wasn't a pretty game by any stretch, but Newton still got the job done.
With a win finally under Newton's belt, it's time to grade the young quarterback on the good, bad, and ugly from Sunday.
While he only threw for 158 passing yards, Cam Newton still did out-produce Blaine Gabbert.
Gabbert only threw for 139 yards, and he also had an interception.
Newton finished the game with no interceptions and no fumbles.
While both rookie quaterbacks both threw for a touchdown, Newton had the edge (as well as leading a game-winning fourth quarter drive) and got the win over Gabbert.
While Cam Newton didn't turn the ball over—he did only throw one touchdown.
Blaine Gabbert had his touchdown in the second quarter, and he would've won the game for the Jacksonville Jaguars had Newton's fourth quarter drive not ruined the fun.
Newton also only had a 4.6 average on his passes, as well as completing under 55 percent of them.
Newton is also a lot better than seven carries for 27 yards for a lowly 3.9 average per rush.
There wasn't really anything ugly during Cam Newton's performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars other than the weather.
Newton found a way—horrible weather and all—to led his Carolina Panthers team to a victory.
I don't care for the 75.4 quarterback rating, nor for his lack of accuracy on overthrown passes.
However, accuracy will come with time, and at 22 years of age—Newton has plenty of it.
Final Grade: B+
