BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens played defense in a fashion Rex Ryan could surely appreciate -- even if the performance came at his teams expense.Baltimore used a touchdown pass by Joe Flacco , two field goals and a throwback defensive effort to beat the Buffalo Bills 13-7 on Sunday in the season opener.Getting 11 tackles from cornerback Shareece Wright, the Ravens limited Buffalo to 160 yards and sacked former teammate Tyrod Taylor twice.Thats how Baltimore played defense under Ryan from 1999-2008, and thats how it won the 2012 Super Bowl.Ryan is now Buffalos head coach, and it pained him to see his offense struggle against a defensive unit that last year yielded 401 points.Its a pretty darn good defense over there, Ryan said. Im probably one of the only coaches thatll give credit to the opponent because they deserve it. That defense played extremely well. Theyre well coached and they got after us.Returning from a knee injury that ended his season last November, Flacco went 23 for 34 for 258 yards, including a long touchdown pass to newcomer Mike Wallace in the second quarter that put the Ravens ahead for good.That, plus field goals of 50 and 37 yards by Justin Tucker, was enough for Baltimores first season-opening victory since 2012.Taylor used his quickness to avoid a ferocious pass rush, but he had little success passing downfield. He was 15 of 22 for only 111 yards and ran five times for 11 yards.Getting Tyrod on the ground is pretty difficult, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. We would have had him a few more times, but he made plays with his feet.Baltimore took a 10-0 lead when Wallace got behind Stephon Gilmore, took a pass in stride and pulled away for the 66-yard touchdown. Signed as a free agent to enhance an offense that last year lacked a deep threat, Wallace hadnt been part of a play that long since 2012 with Pittsburgh.We made one mistake: Its my fault, its on me, Ryan said. We should have doubled the receiver that caught the touchdown. Instead we doubled somebody else.Buffalo used the elusiveness of Taylor in the pocket to close to 10-7 before halftime. After wriggling from the grasp of Albert McClellan and sidestepping Terrell Suggs, Taylor completed a 33-yard pass to Charles Clay, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by LeSean McCoy on fourth down.The Bills missed a chance to pull even when Dan Carpenter was wide right on a 49-yard field goal try midway through the third quarter.INJURY UPDATE: Bills starting LT Cory Glenn (ankle) and TE Jim Dray (ankle) both left with injuries in the second quarter and did not return. Bills DT Jerel Worthy left with a knee injury in the fourth quarter and did not return. The Ravens did not report any injuries.ROOKIE BLUNDER & THUNDER: In his first NFL game, Ravens top draft pick left tackle Ronnie Stanley jumped offside on third-and-1 early in the first quarter. On Baltimores next possession, the teams top pick in 2015, Breshad Perriman, made his first NFL reception with a leaping grab at the sideline for a 35-yard gain. Perriman missed the entire 2015 season with a knee injury.WHERES WATKINS?: One reason Taylor was so successful last year was he utilized Sammy Watkins as a deep threat. Watkins was practically invisible during the first half, making only two short receptions for a total of 13 yards. Watkins finished with four catches for 43 yards.SMITH & SUGGS RETURN: Ravens receiver Steve Smith and Suggs returned to regular-season action after having their 2015 season cut short by torn Achilles tendons. Smith caught five passes for 19 yards and stands 53 yards short of passing James Lofton for 10th place on the career list. Suggs had a sack.NO HAPPY RETURNS: In his debut with the Ravens, Devin Hester, one of the great kick returners in NFL history, took back two kickoffs for 18 yards and two punts for 0 yards.QUOTABLE: Someone asked Harbaugh to describe Flaccos stature in the pocket coming off a serious injury: Joe is as tough as a $2 steak. Whats a $2 steak nowadays?McCoy, who scored his 60th career TD: It was a bad day. We didnt get nothing going sideways. We had one long drive and that was it.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Saquon Barkley Jersey .

Saquon Barkley Giants Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton officially has been ruled out for Monday nights NFC South game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a concussion.Derek Anderson will make his third start for Carolina (1-3) since joining the team in 2011. He was 2-0 in his other two starts, both against the Buccaneers (1-3) in 2014 when Newton was injured.Were going to do what we do, play who we play, Carolina coach Ron Rivera said after Saturdays practice that was moved inside to the Charlotte Convention Center because of heavy rain and wind from Hurricane Matthew.Weve done this before. Its that next man up mentality. Weve done it before.The Panthers also will be without starting left tackle Michael Oher (concussion), running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring), cornerback James Bradberry (toe) and backup defensive tackle Vernon Butler (ankle).Rivera had no update on Newtons status in the concussion protocol other than hes progressing. He said there is no way to predict whether Newton will be available for next weeks game at New Orleans.Until I see him on the field, I dont really know, Rivera said. A lot of the stuff he did today he did with the trainers and the doctors, which is good. Hopefully, the next step will progress and well go on.Rivera said whether or not Newton is on the sideline on Monday night is up to the doctors and whether he can handle the excitement.Asked how Newton is handling not being able to play, remembering how tough the quarterback took it when he was held out of the 2014 opener at Tampa Bay with fractured ribs, Rivera said hes antsy.He cant help himself, he added. Thats the part of the thing that youve got to get him to, calm down, get him to relax. He cant help himself.Newton suffered the concussion in the fourth quarter of Sundays 48-33 loss at Atlanta when linebacker Deion Jones delivered a legal helmet-to-helmet hitt as the NFL MVP approached the goal line on a two-point conversion run.ddddddddddddAnderson finished the game, completing 17 of 23 pass attempts for 172 yards and two touchdowns.He completed 49 of 74 pass attempts for 501 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in his other two starts for the Panthers.He has a career record of 20-25 as a starter, most of those coming during his first four seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was selected to the 2007 Pro Bowl after going 10-5 for the Browns.I dont know if theres a better backup situation in the league, Carolina tight end Greg Olsen said. Guys have a lot of respect for him. Hes been in the fire as the starter, as a backup in places hes been. Every time hes coming in hes delivered.Hes always there when weve needed him.One of Andersons strengths is a quick release. One of Carolinas weaknesses this season has been its inability to handle pressure, giving up 13 sacks, a rate of 3.25 per game that is tied for the second highest in the league.Newton sometimes holds onto the ball too long under pressure trying to make something happen.You know DA is going to get it out quick, quicker probably than Cam, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin said earlier this week. Were going to have to be fast on our routes.Newton averages 2.57 seconds to release the ball, which ranks 26th in the NFL. That number is a slight improvement from last seasons 2.61 average for Newton, but still higher than the league average of 2.46 seconds.I think he takes what he can get when he plays, Rivera said of Anderson. Unlike Cam, who is going to stand tall in there and maybe skip an opportunity and work something downfield, Derek is going to be quick to pull the trigger and make a quick decision and go forward.
