Filling in for Chris Chester who is battling a bacterial skin infection, Tony Moll's starting debut with the Ravens went off without a hitch in the team's 37-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers Sunday.
Moll made his first start at right guard since Sept. 21, 2008 and did not draw a flag or seem to surrender a sack.
"It's always a good thing to start," Moll said. "It's been a while since I've done that. Just shaking off the rust and getting rid of that little butterfly feeling before the game. I think I did a decent job, but you never know until you watch the film."Moll took all of the snaps at right guard during Friday's practice, but he said the difference between games and practices is considerable.
"You can take all the plays you want in practice, but there's nothing that compares to playing on Sunday," he said.
Flacco said the offense worked well with Moll. "We miss Chris. I hope he's back at home getting better right now, but Tony filled in great," Flacco said. "We'll be excited to see Chris in a couple days and welcome him back and get him ready to go. But Tony did a great job filling in."
