SCOUT­ING RE­PORT

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

Quar­ter­back Joe Flacco ex­celled in the two-minute of­fense Sun­day against the New Or­leans Saints, lead­ing the Ravens on touch­down drives at the end of each half. With 2,067 pass­ing yards through seven games, he’s on pace for a ca­reer high, and his passer rat­ing of 88.5 would be his best since 2014. Wide re­ceiver John Brown is on pace for a ca­reer-best sea­son af­ter catch­ing seven passes for 134 yards against the Saints, and he ranks third in the NFL with 19.9 yards per catch.

Quar­ter­back Cam New­ton has been ef­fi­cient this sea­son, com­plet­ing 65.6 per­cent of his passes and throw­ing just four in­ter­cep­tions in six games. Devin Funchess is the team’s top wide re­ceiver, with 29 catches for 374 yards and three touch­downs. For­mer Mary­land stand­out DJ Moore has 13 catches for 191 yards in his rookie sea­son. The Pan­thers don’t have a high-vol­ume pass­ing at­tack, rank­ing just 22nd in the league in yards through the air.
