NFL Preseason Preview - Carolina (1-1) at Baltimore (2-0) (ET)
(Sports Network) - The reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens shoot for their third consecutive preseason win when they host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday.
The Ravens rallied to score 20 points in the fourth quarter, capped with a 78- yard punt return by Asa Jackson, as they defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 27-23, last week.
Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor went 5-for-9 for 83 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception, while starter Joe Flacco was 7-for-9 for 118 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Ravens, who also won their preseason opener against the Buccaneers, 44-16.
Torrey Smith had two catches for a game-high 85 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons. Aaron Mellette and Tandon Doss each had one reception, but both of their catches resulted in a touchdown.
The Panthers, meanwhile, stumbled in Philadelphia last week, falling to Michael Vick and the Eagles 14-9.
Newton struggled under center for Carolina, connecting on just 8-of-17 passes for 112 yards.
DeAngelo Williams carried the ball 12 times for 39 yards for the Panthers, who opened their preseason slate with a win over Chicago.
The Panthers and Ravens will be meeting for the fifth time in the preseason with Carolina holding a 3-1 advantage.
