The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Carolina Panthers just like I anticipated in my previous post. Actually, the Ravens did better than I thought they would scoring 10 more points than I predicted. Joe Flacco set the tone early hitting T.J. Houshmandzadeh for a 56 yard touchdown pass on the second play from scrimmage and the Ravens never looked back after that.
Several Ravens hit career milestones during the game. T.J. Houshmandzadeh caught his 600th career reception. Old reliable Derrick Mason became the 13th play in NFL history to hit the 900 career catch mark. Not to be outdone, a couple of defensive players hit milestones as well. Ed Reed grabbed his 50th career interception and Ray Lewis snatched his 30th career interception which he also ran in for a TD to close out the game.
Final Score: Ravens 37 Panthers 13
