On the Baltimore Ravens second offensive play against the Carolina Panthers, QB Joe Flacco found WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh for a 56-yard touchdown. It was also Flacco’s first pass of the day. You may not have started Houshmandzadeh, considering he only has 13 catches and one touchdown this year, but he’s playing the Panthers, so there’s where you went wrong.
Flacco now has a touchdown in all but two games this year. He could take a run at his first 300-yard game of the season, but the Ravens could put the Panthers away early and then let RBs Ray Rice and Willis McGahee run the clock out. This might be one of those deals where the matchup was just a little too good.
Panthers RB Mike Goodson continues to be the focus of the Carolina attack, with 33 yards on seven touches already.
