Baltimore just completed a 96-yard touchdown drive, the final 30 coming at the expense of the Panther secondary on a Joe Flacco-to-Mark-Clayton touchdown pass.
It's early in the second quarter and the Panthers trail, 10-0.
On the touchdown pass, Captain Munnerlyn (starting in place of injured Chris Gamble) had Clayton singled up one-on-one on the right side. Charles Godfrey tried to help from his safety position, but got frozen briefly and got there too late. Munnerlyn fell down -- he thought there was contact -- and Clayton made the TD grab.
Now the Panthers are beginning their fourth offensive series, and rookie Jimmy Clausen is in the game for the first time.
