  • Mayfield is 3-5 in eight career games against Baltimore, averaging 277.6 pass yards per game with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Foreman moving

Burns adds to sack total

  • Through 10 games, Brian Burns has 7.0 sacks, 10 tackles for loss and 45 total tackles. He ranks fifth in the league in TFLs and 10th in sacks.
  • Only Haason Reddick (2021) has ever had that many sacks, TFLs and total tackles through Week 10 in Panthers history.
