VIDEO: Blaine Gabbert, Mike Thomas Connect For Touchdown To End First Half

As far as first touchdown passes go, it doesn't get much better than this. As time expired in the first half of Sunday's Jaguars-Panthers game, Blaine Gabbert stepped up and found Mike Thomas deep down the middle of the field. It wasn't quite a Hail Mary, but Thomas did find the end zone, sauntering through a hole in the Panthers' defense and diving into the end zone for the score.

And they did it all in the midst of a torrential downpour. Check out the video.

Gabbert has been hit-or-miss in his first NFL start, completing seven of 13 passes for 84 yards, and interception and the aforementioned touchdown. It's been a low-scoring affair in Carolina, but Gabbert's end-of-the-half touchdown pass put the Jags on top of the Panthers, 10-5.

On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton has just 71 yards through the air, completing 12 of the 23 passes he's thrown.
