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.
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.
Ken Murray: Ravens 45 Panthers 0. It's time to start playing four quarters every week. This is a great chance to get in the routine.
Mike Preston: Ravens 28, Panthers 7: This will be the Ravens' second bye of the 2010 season.
Peter Schmuck: Ravens 23, Panthers 13: The Ravens need to start playing like a Super Bowl contender again. Might as well be this week.
WJZ's Mark Vivano: Ravens 31, Panthers 13: It's the first time this season the Ravens don't fear a quarterback. Carolina doesn't have one.
