TAMPA, FLA. -- As veteran wide receiver Steve Smith hauled in a 56-yard touchdown pass from Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, there was a mass exodus from Raymond James Stadium.

The Ravens had built a commanding 35-0 lead in the first half and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' fans reacted to the rout by leaving the stands.

The Ravens scored 28 points in the first quarter, a franchise record for most points scored in a quarter on the road.

Flacco has delivered five touchdown passes and zero interceptions in the first half. That includes two touchdown passes to former Maryland standout wide receiver Torrey Smith, who has broken out of his early-season slump.

Flacco also connected with River Hill graduate Michael Campanaro for a 19-yard touchdown. It was the rookie wide receiver's first NFL reception.

Wide receiver Kamar Aiken also scored his first NFL touchdown on a 17-yard pass from Flacco.

Early in the second quarter, Flacco had already completed 10 of 13 passes for 196 yards and a 157.9 quarterback rating.

In contrast, Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon has been under siege.
