When the Ravens play at the struggling Carolina Panthers on Sunday, they'll take along the NFL's hottest quarterback, a playmaking running back and a troublesome trend. In their five road games this season, the Ravens have struggled mightily in the first quarter, managing a total of three points while getting shut out four times. Slow starts on the road are becoming an increasing problem and appear to be more than just happenstance. The Ravens have failed to score a point in the first half of five of Joe Flacco's past 10 road games.

The Ravens last season were demolished in Denver, bumbled through their afternoon in Buffalo, and caved in close losses at Cleveland, Chicago and Cincinnati. A team that had relished going on the road and winning in coach John Harbaugh's first five seasons became a mistake-prone, defensively challenged shell of itself whenever it ventured away from M&T Bank Stadium in 2013. The current Ravens are a far different team, players have said repeatedly in recent weeks. They can prove that and distance themselves from recent road woes by going to Cleveland and beating the rejuvenated Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

If this year is truly the Ravens' road to the Super Bowl, they must prove they can survive the road at the beginning of the season. With one of the most brutal starts in the NFL this season, the Ravens travel for four of their first six games. To make the challenge even greater, three of those road games are against 2009 playoff teams (the New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots) who went to the playoffs last season and the other happens to be at the Ravens' chief AFC North rival (the Pittsburgh Steelers)

While pundits and prognosticators may assert that No. 9 Johns Hopkins' 11-6 victory over No. 5 Maryland on Saturday at Homewood Field in Baltimore furthered solidified the Blue Jays' prospects of grabbing an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, coach Dave Pietramala made it clear that he had no such desire to entertain the validity of that scenario. “I don't care about the big picture,” he said. “I've told you every week that what I care about is right in front of us, and what was right in front of us was Maryland and now we've turned around and what's right in front of us is Mount St. Mary's [on Monday]

Spirit goalie Cris Vaccaro fractured his right big toe in Saturday's season-opening win against the Tampa Bay Terror and will be out two to four weeks.The injury at first was thought to be a sprain, but X-rays yesterday revealed the fracture. Joe Mallia, who shared the job with Vaccaro last season, is expected to start the road games Friday against the St. Louis Ambush and Saturday at Tampa Bay.On the depth chart behind Mallia is Jim McCombs, a former Stockton State College keeper who appeared in two games last season.

With a 9-0 mark going into Friday's game on the road against the Chicago Soul, the Blast will be looking for a piece of history with an opportunity to tie the franchise mark for best start to a season. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m. The 1993-94 Spirit opened its season at 10-0, the best in the 33 years of professional indoor soccer in Baltimore. The Blast, which is 3-0 on the road and 3 1/2 games in front of second-place Milwaukee (4-2) in the Major Indoor Soccer League, has two home wins against the last-place Soul.

Maryland's basketball game at North Carolina, scheduled for tonight, was one of the victims of the winter storm that blew up the East Coast yesterday, as the Atlantic Coast Conference contest has been pushed back until tomorrow night. Only the date has changed. The game will start at 7 p.m. and will be shown on ESPN. The Terps had planned to take a charter jet from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Raleigh-Durham International last night, but both were shut down by hazardous travel conditions.

The prospect of filling every seat at M&T Bank Stadium for Saturday's matchup between Maryland and West Virginia seemed promising when the game was first booked a little more than two years ago. Both the Terps and Mountaineers were coming off bowl games and had made coaching changes to energize their respective fan bases. Although the game might not sell out - 55,000 tickets have been sold as of Thursday morning, according to Maryland deputy athletic director Nathan Pine - the makeup of the crowd in terms of the allegiance to the respective teams could be noticeable.

No. 11 Maryland has looked overpowering in 16-3 and 14-3 routs of Mount St. Mary's and UMBC in back-to-back Saturdays, but the team's resolve will be tested in Saturday's road game against No. 2 and new Atlantic Coast Conference rival Syracuse. It will be the first time since 1983 that the Terps and Orange will meet in a regular-season contest, and it will be Maryland's first visit to Syracuse since 1960. The Terps will face an Orange program that has captured 11 national championships and will play in the fabled Carrier Dome before departing the ACC for the Big Ten conference next season.

Mount St. Mary's is planning to open the 2014 campaign against Maryland on Saturday at noon at Byrd Stadium in College Park without considerable playing time from a pair of its most veteran defensemen. Senior Shane Pierce and junior Kyle O'Brien are still in the stages of recovering from offseason surgery (meniscus for Pierce and separated shoulder for O'Brien), according to coach Tom Gravante. “I don't believe those men will be starting for us on Saturday,” he said. “It's unfortunate.

The UMBC men's basketball team has protected its turf at RAC Arena, winning four of five games this season in Catonsville. On the flipside, however, the Retrievers are winless away from home, going 0-8 en route to a 4-9 record. Coach Aki Thomas knows that if UMBC harbors any hope of advancing deep into the America East tournament, the team must begin winning on the road. “It's important,” he said Tuesday. “I'm glad that we're able to take care of home for the most part, but we're going to have to steal a few on the road.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space, we will provide a look ahead rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play at No. 5 Ohio State on Wednesday: ROAD KILL Much had been made of the road woes of Randy Edsall's football team, until its recent wins at Virginia Tech and North Carolina State.

Many college basketball coaches have some degree of autonomy over their regular-season schedule, and they usually try to use that power to their team's advantage. Jamion Christian took a different approach, having his Mount St. Mary's team open this season with five straight road games. The team has lost its first four, and will try to end the skid with a win at UMES on Wednesday night, but Christian said he does not regret how he arranged the opening portion of the schedule. “I really like to challenge our team early in the year,” the second-year coach said Tuesday night.

Sometime, perhaps after Saturday's game, Randy Edsall will allow himself to embrace the nostalgia associated with returning to Connecticut. It's the school he coached for 12 seasons. His daughter graduated from UConn, and his son was schooled in the state. He helped transition the program from Division I-AA. But - as I wrote in a story for Wednesday's paper - Edsall is able to compartmentalize when he needs to. He won't allow himself or his team to be distracted. While the media was asking them about Edsall and UConn, Terps players wanted to talk instead about the chance to go 3-0 for the first time since 2001, a year Maryland earned a trip to the Orange Bowl.
