Newton perfect in preseason debut, Panthers edge Jags 24-23

Seeing live action for the first time since last season's finale, Newton completed both of his passes for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Carolina Panthers' 24-23 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Newton's 9-yard slant pass to Kelvin Benjamin capped a 10-play opening drive that showed coach Ron Rivera all he needed to see from his star quarterback.

And rookie receiver Curtis Samuel, a second-round draft pick from Ohio State, saw extensive action after missing time because of a hamstring injury.

Myers missed three field-goal attempts and an extra point in Jacksonville's first two preseason games, prompting the Jaguars to bring in veteran Dan Carpenter and Patrick Murray for workouts last weekend.

The Jaguars were without several starters, including running back Leonard Fournette (foot), receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and cornerback A.J.
