Baltimore just took a 10-0 lead over Carolina on a 22-yard field goal by Billy Cundiff with 1:15 left in the first quarter.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is absolutely eating up the Panthers -- he's 7-for-7 for 120 yards so far. Carolina finally stopped him on that drive on third-and-goal on the five when Baltimore inexplicably called a run play, which was stopped.
Carolina could have stopped the drive earlier, but on a third-and-long play the Panthers' Everette Brown was called for illegal use of hands when rushing the quarterback, so Baltimore's 13-play, 84-yard march continued.
The Panthers' new QB, Brian St. Pierre, is 3-for-5 for 20 yards so far, so he's now thrown as many passes today as he did in his previous 8-year career.
