On the Carolina Panthers' first play from the line of scrimmage, Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs blew by left tackle Byron Bell and wrapped up quarterback Cam Newton like a bundle of hay. Suggs didn't get the sack, but Newton's pass was hurried and fell incomplete. For the rest of the game Suggs was either in Newton's face or in his head. So was fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and defensive end-outside linebacker turned nose guard Pernell McPhee. For the first time all season, the Ravens kept consistent pressure on a quarterback as Newton left M&T Bank Stadium grimacing and with a limp.

Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink -- let's get that out of the way first. But the Ravens still needed an offensive performance like this on the road. It was extremely beneficial to get Torrey Smith going, and also to incorporate a couple of more targets, like Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken, into the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense played well until it let down in the second half. They got a rare interception from a defensive back and a rare - at least lately - sack from Terrell Suggs.

That big collective sigh you heard late Sunday came from Ravens Nation, which was in full-scale panic mode and exhausting the region's supply of Xanax until the news of Elvis Dumervil's deal came down. What a heist Ozzie Newsome pulled off, something on the scale of "Ocean's 11," only without a casino involved. Let's see, the Ravens get one of the best pass rushers in the league to replace Paul Kruger, who pulled off his own heist when he got the Cleveland Browns to pay him $40 million over five years.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.

Elvis Dumervil passed his physical and signed his five-year contract with the Ravens, the team announced today. Dumervil's five-year deal is for a maximum of $35 million. It includes $12 million in guaranteed money and $8.5 million for the 2013 season. However, all but $1 million of that will be paid out in a signing bonus, meaning Dumervil's cap hit for the coming season will be $2.5 million. That leaves the reigning Super Bowl champions with about $5 million of salary cap space to address their other needs, which include a left tackle, middle linebacker and safety.

The Ravens currently have 89 players on their roster, and all but six of them are out on the practice field today at the Under Armour Performance Center as the team prepares for Thursday's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. The six players missing are wide receiver Deonte Thompson (left foot), tight end Dennis Pitta (dislocated right hip), center Ryan Jensen (broken left foot), linebackers Jameel McClain (spinal cord contusion) and Adrian Hamilton (right wrist)

Ravens strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil recently bought a $2.3 million mansion in Parkland, Fla., according to Realtor.com . The home, which is located about 45 minutes north of his hometown (Miami), features seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Dumervil, who signed a five-year contract with the Ravens in March for a maximum value of $35 million , spoke to The Sun last week about the challenges of growing up in Miami's Liberty City area . "You see guns, you see violence, you see people being shot at in a parking lot," Dumervil said.

When the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil in the offseason, the expectation was that he and fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs would team up to become one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the league. Considering that Suggs was coming off an injury-marred 2012 season in which he had just two sacks and also that Dumervil was being dropped into a new defensive system, those immediate expectations may have seemed a little lofty. But after watching them harass quarterbacks throughout training camp and into the preseason, it was clear to most that the Ravens had something special at the outside linebacker position.

After fielding a few questions about whether Terrell Suggs is playing better than he ever has and another about the effect that Elvis Dumervil has had on his pass rush, defensive coordinator Dean Pees wanted to make sure Baltimore media and Ravens fans knew about the dirty work being done by Courtney Upshaw. The second-year strong-side linebacker has made just 10 tackles in five games and recorded his first sack of the season last weekend against the Miami Dolphins. But Pees said Upshaw “does a lot of little things behind the scenes,” like picking offensive linemen to free up his teammates to sack the quarterback.

Former Pro Bowl outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil is hoping to crank up the Ravens' languishing pass rush. Through three games, the Ravens have recorded just three sacks with two of them registered by Dumervil during a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens (2-1) are tied for 27th in the NFL in sacks. Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has zero sacks this season and just one sack in his past 11 games, the last one coming last December when he tagged down New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

Welcome to the Ravens Ten-Pack, where I'll go medium depth on 10 Ravens topics that came from the previous week's game. This was initially a Tuesday thing, but now it's a Monday thing, so read ahead for notes on Jimmy Smith, C.J. Mosley, the Ravens' offensive gameplan, and their inability to deal with pressure. 1. The early-game decision-making by both John Harbaugh and Colts coach Chuck Pagano was telling Sunday. The Colts went for it on fourth down on the opening drive, and the Ravens opted against a field goal on fourth down in the second quarter - which resulted in a silly play-action sack for quarterback Joe Flacco.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Ravens were involved in a statement game on Sunday, and they sent the wrong message. If they wanted to prove they were a contending team after missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007, they failed. In fact, some of the same things that kept them from the playoffs in 2013 showed up again in a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts before a crowd of 65,258 at Lucas Oil Stadium. It's not like Indianapolis had been dominant this seaosn.

Pernell McPhee has never operated in the spotlight on the Ravens defense, but the fourth-year outside linebacker has carved out an effective place in the rotation by both feeding on those who hog the attention, and at times, taking it away from them. With the Ravens thin on the defensive line and with stars Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil no longer every-down rushers, McPhee has seen time at both outside linebacker positions, defensive end, and nose tackle. He's not being shoehorned into the defense out of necessity, though.

When Terrell Suggs lifted himself off of Newton on the final play of the Panthers' first drive last Sunday, he thought his frustrating streak without a sack was finally over. He even did a little dance. However, he learned later that he only got credited for a half sack, sharing it with fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil. “I'm definitely fighting the NFL on that,” Suggs said laughing. “I'm definitely sending [the tape] in.” Suggs didn't have a sack in the Ravens' first three games and he was also held without one for seven of the final eight games last year.

GAME PLAN: Gary Kubiak constructed a strategy that heavily involved veteran wide receiver Steve Smith as he was targeted 10 times against his former team. The Ravens trust Smith in every situation: short, intermediate and deep. It was a balanced approach with a few more deep shots than usual. The Ravens ran the football 30 times for 127 yards and two touchdowns, with 31 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. Although it was primarily Smith's day to be featured, quarterback Joe Flacco distributed the football to eight different targets.

Strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil was the lone Raven not practicing today as the team continued its preparations for Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Dumervil has not practiced since hurting his left ankle in the Ravens' Thanksgiving night victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, Dumervil said that he is aiming to return to the practice field on Friday. "I'm going to try and go out tomorrow," he said. "I'm going to try and go out with the guys, get some work in. We've got a good team in Detroit so I have to make sure I'm ready.

As the Ravens started their final full-scale practice before Sunday's showdown against the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium, quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice were both on the field. Rice (thigh) did not practice Wednesday, and he was a limited participant yesterday. Flacco, who is dealing with a low-grade sprain in his left knee, has been limited the past two days. Both were listed as questionable on the injury report, though they are expected to play.
