Last night was brutal. I've chosen to move on after reading about how much we sucked (hint: it was a lot).
We damn well better shore up our O-line and D-line before traveling to Baltimore.
O/U : 39.5
Baltimore - 3
Two favors for Carolina:
1. Any combination of Pierce, Taliaferro, and Forsett are nowhere near the talent of Bell/Blount. Should me a much easier day at stopping the run.
2. Dennis Pitta just dislocated his hip and will be a substantial period of time. He's been Flacco's security blanket (outside of Smitty). This should allow us to focus our coverage more on the perimeter of field with the Smith's.
Two favors for Baltimore:
1. Their defense is better than the Pitt defense that just demolished our O-line.
2. They appear to have all the intangibles in their favor (Smitty revenge, home field, confidence after spanking Steelers and then them spanking us)
Maybe it's the homer in me but I'll take the over and Carolina in a close game. 23-17
