BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens haven't put a high priority on beating the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night in the third preseason game for both teams.
If winning was important, the defending Super Bowl champions would be looking at game film and studying the tendencies of Carolina quarterback Cam Newton.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says, "We're not trying to scheme anything. We're just trying to get good at the fundamentals and then evaluate our players."
Harbaugh intends to play most of his starters into the third quarter. The hope is that they perform better than last week against Atlanta, when the offense and defense struggled during a lackluster first half.
Even though the Ravens won both their first two preseason games, they're still looking for a better performance from the starters.
