There’s little question today’s Carolina Panthers vs Baltimore Ravens game is the one on most people’s “gotta watch live” list. Not only is Cam Newton back and playing well, but today’s Panthers / Ravens game at 1pm EST on CBS is the first time Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith will face-off against his former team.
Smith was surprisingly cut by the Panthers in the spring in spite of holding the franchise records for total receptions, touchdowns and receiving yards. The thinking at the time was that Smith was too expensive and too polarizing to, at his age, justify the potential returns for a 14th year in Carolina.
A certain rich owner at M&T Bank Stadium may have some second thoughts as they watch Panthers game live today from the executive suite. Through three games, Smith has had 290 receiving yards for the Ravens and shown his career was far from over with the Panthers. Naturally, the notoriously verbose wideout is looking for revenge today, which is why so many people want to watch today’s Panthers Ravens game live online free.
As amped as Smith will be for today’s Panthers game, the Carolina defense will be equally ready to shut him down. In week 2, the Carolina secondary threw down with Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, who just the week prior had exploded for 164 yards and two TDs. Against the Panthers, Megatron could muster just 83 yards. Having been embarrassed by the Steelers last Sunday, the Panthers D has several reasons to be motivated for today’s Ravens game.
The Ravens will also have an offensive star to shut down in Panthers QB Cam Newton. After missing time to open the season, Newton has come back to the Panthers lineup and played well. Though he was continually pressured last week against Pittsburgh, Newton has guided the Panthers to the 10th-rated passing attack. That’s quite an accomplishment considering he had fewer weeks to pull that off. Of course, it’s also a virtual requirement for Newton to play well as you watch today’s Panthers Ravens game live free, as the Panthers backfield is riddled with injuries.
