Sam Farmer's pick Panthers 24, Giants 21 — With Hakeem Nicks out, the Giants could have trouble with a Carolina secondary that picked off Drew Brees twice. New York's secondary is suspect, and if Cam Newton can get away from that defensive front, he can cause big problems. Our picks: Kevin Cowherd : Giants Edward Lee : Giants Mike Preston : Giants Peter Schmuck : Panthers Matt Vensel: Giants Aaron Wilson: Giants Jeff Zrebiec : Panthers

With first place in the Carroll County on the line at home against North Carroll, the Liberty football program was more than up for the challenge. Thanks to an offensive attack that did what it had to, as well as shutdown defense in the second half, the Lions ended the Panthers' undefeated start Thursday night, 22-13. "I'm feeling pretty pumped right now," said Liberty quarterback Austin Bode, who threw for two touchdowns in the win. "I thought this was a great battle throughout the entire game.

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.

Kevin Cowherd: Ravens 27, Panthers 7: Panthers could be starting third-string quarterback Tony Pike and plan to suit up their equipment manager if Pike goes down. Jamison Hensley: Ravens 20, Panthers 0: Defense will be in a feisty mood after last week's fourth-quarter collapse. Playing the NFL's worst offense doesn't hurt, too. Edward Lee: Ravens 33, Panthers 13: Jimmy Clausen? Tony Pike? DeAngelo Williams at less than 100 percent? This should be an easy one for the Ravens.

More eye contact, rollouts Omar Kelly Sun Sentinel Cam Newton's having a sophomore slump, and most of his struggles have to do with an eye discipline problem. The Panthers starting quarterback not only eyeballs his targets inside the red zone, but he's plagued with a case of shifty eyes whenever talking to the media. Newton's tendency to avoid eye contact makes him seem disingenuous. He's fueling his critics because of his post game press conferences, and until he learns how to play the political game his detractors will continue to add up. It would also benefit the Panthers if they allowed Newton to create more big plays by rolling him out of the pocket and using his legs to produce first downs.

In last weekend's regional football semifinal, Pikesville probably faced the most highly motivated team in the entire state tournament bracket: Sparrows Point. A week earlier, the Pointers had a chance to beat Pikesville on the last play of the regular-season finale, but Panthers linebacker Nolan Hart tipped the ball away from a Sparrows Point player in the end zone to seal a 35-28 Pikesville win. That brought up Part Two for the Baltimore County rivals: the Class 1A North region opener.

1. Pressure the quarterback. Whether it's Tony Pike or Brian St. Pierre, the Ravens need to exploit Carolina's inexperience at this position. The Panthers have given up the third-most sacks in the NFL. 2. Capitalize on turnovers. No team in the league has turned the ball over more than the Panthers. The Ravens have scored seven times off 12 turnovers this season, a rate that needs to be much higher. 3. Run the ball at the Panthers' defense. Carolina has the sixth-worst run defense in the NFL.

With Jimmy Clausen suffering a concussion last week, and only one other QB on the 53-man roster, the Panthers promoted QB Brian St. Pierre, who was a backup for the Ravens in 2005, from the practice squad. St. Pierre, who'll turn 31 in a week and a half, was brought in last Friday after QB Matt Moore was placed on injured reserve. If Clausen isn't cleared, sixth-round rookie Tony Pike would be the starter by default, since he's the only other one available. This is St. Pierre's eighth year in the NFL, but he's only played in two games and thrown five passes.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

Steve Smith only has been with the Ravens for about six months, but his teammates and coaches are starting to get a better read on the veteran wide receiver. So when John Harbaugh approached Smith in the training room before the game against the Carolina Panthers and asked him the most general of questions, the Ravens coach listened to the one-word response and was content. It was all that he needed to hear. “I said, “How are you doing? You doing OK?' and he said, 'Nope,' ” Harbaugh said.

It probably wouldn't have made a difference even if Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had not delivered a strike to the left corner of the end zone. No one from the Ravens' secondary was in position to challenge the pass Sunday as Newton hit rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a 28-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Free safety Darian Stewart reacted far too late after cornerback Jimmy Smith had the initial coverage on Benjamin and released him to Stewart. For the second consecutive game, the Ravens had a botched coverage because of a mix-up in coverage responsibilities.

Jeff Zrebiec breaks down each area of the Ravens' Week 4 home game against the Carolina Panthers:  PASSING GAME RAVENS: All eyes will be on wide receiver Steve Smith, who faces the organization he played with for 13 seasons. While Joe Flacco will undoubtedly look to get Smith the ball early, he needs receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown to be more involved in the passing game. That trio has combined for just 10 catches this season. Flacco has not been sacked in two straight games, but with left tackle Eugene Monroe sidelined, his blindside will now be protected by undrafted rookie James Hurst.

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 of the game when the Ravens host the Carolina Panthers in the first and possibly only "Blood and Guts" Bowl. 1. Wide receiver Steve Smith Who else could it be? Any fairly educated guess as to who's the difference in this game must include the former Panthers wide receiver for several reasons, not the least of which is because he holds a big grudge against Carolina.

Ravens rookie linebacker C.J. Mosley lines up on every snap beside who he calls an “old-school” linebacker, Daryl Smith. On the opposite sideline Sunday, he'll cross paths with Panthers star Luke Kuechly, the 2013 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year and the new standard for the athletic, three-down linebacker Mosley hopes to become. “[He's] one of the guys that can move around, make plays in the coverage and move sideline to sideline,” Mosley said. “Watching him at Boston College when I was at Alabama, then after he came out … [he made]

The Mount St. Joseph boys basketball team vowed to start out better in this year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, having learned from last year's thorough loss to St. Frances in the same game. The No. 2 Gaels did just that against the No. 10 Panthers on Sunday, building a modest advantage that helped them get settled. And then, every time the defending champions threatened with a run, the Gaels came up with championship-quality answers. The Mount St. Joseph seniors led the way: Phil Booth scored a game-high 25 points, Jaylen Adams had 17 and Jordan McNeil added 11 as the Gaels came away with a 68-58 win over the Panthers before an overflow crowd at UMBC's RAC Arena.

Steve Smith started the healing process immediately after he left the Carolina Panthers' facility and returned to his Charlotte home. Even though he anticipated his release by the only NFL organization that he had ever known, he was still angry and bitter. When Smith sat down with his family, the emotions poured out. They discussed everything - his college career at Utah, getting drafted by the Panthers, the 13 prolific seasons he played with them, and then of course, the difficult parting of ways.
