Highlights

Fourth quarter:

-- Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst scores from 22 yards out, his first career touchdown catch, with a minute left. Too little, too late. — Jonas Shaffer

-- Cam Newton fools Jimmy Smith badly on the naked bootleg, and it's an easy 12-yard score for the Panthers. It's 33-14 now, with the XP pending. — Jonas Shaffer

Third quarter:

--Panthers QB Cam Newton has thrown 23 passes today, and the Ravens have hit him just three times. No sacks. For Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson, it's six QB hits on 29 attempts. — Jonas Shaffer

--Ravens' second-half defense is stepping up. Panthers haven't made it deep into Ravens territory in their two second-half drives. — Jonas Shaffer

--Flacco appeared to land on the back of Ronnie Stanley's knee. That would be a massive loss if it's serious. Stanley has quietly taken a step forward this year and become a linchpin of an o-line that was already hurting. — Childs Walker

-- Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley is on the ground and in some pain. Looks like a leg got rolled up on as Joe Flacco delivered the ball. — Jonas Shaffer

Second quarter:

-- Ravens got outplayed, outhustled, out coached, out everything in the first half of this game. — Mike Preston

-- Man, the #Ravens cannot get out of their own way today. Penalties, turnovers, blown blocks. Just a disaster. Is this the moment when a promising season starts to teeter? — Childs Walker

-- Panthers get their third touchdown. RB Christian McCaffrey came up with the batted ball -- looked like Eric Weddle got it -- and falls into the end zone. — Jonas Shaffer

-- If Ravens don't get their act together right now, we can start talking about what a great 4-4 team they are going into next week's game against the Steelers. — Peter Schmuck

-- Great pass by Newton to TE Olsen, not much Jefferson could do with that one. Miscues and missed blocks will happen on the Ravens offensive line when subbing so much for injured players. — Mike Preston

-- Ravens have allowed just two opponents to score over 14 points all season. Carolina has 14 in just over a quarter. — Jonas Shaffer

-- Panthers TE Greg Olsen beat Ravens S Tony Jefferson inside and comes up with a third-down grab in the end zone. Carolina 14, Ravens 7. — Jonas Shaffer

First quarter:

-- Collins' 14-yard touchdown run was set up two plays before by Lamar Jackson's 17 yard run. Long opening drives have paid off for and against Ravens the past two weeks. — Mike Preston

-- Lamar Jackson was used more on that drive than he has been in some games this season, including on the Collins TD, and was extremely effective. Now let's see what "Heisman brother" Cam Newton can do. — Jonas Shaffer

-- You really see how much Joe Flacco trusts Mark Andrews by how often he goes to him on third down. — Childs Walker

-- Ravens have been really good five and diming down the field with short yardage passes, might be time to go vertical. — Mike Preston

-- Two presnap mess-ups for the Ravens in less than two minutes. — Jonas Shaffer
