It's two hours before Panthers-Ravens kickoff at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, and the artificial-turf field is very wet. It has been raining fairly hard for the past 30 minutes or so but now has lightened up a little.
Still, it won't be an easy night to watch this one in person. The seats are all very wet, and although this band of rain is expected to be gone by 6:30 p.m., there's a 30-50 percent chance of rain during the game (which is expected to run from 8-11 p.m.)
Panther linebacker Jon Beason is one of about a half-dozen Panther players on the field right now, jogging back and forth across the field with headphones on.
