The Carolina Panthers replacement quarterback threw an eye-popping 88-yard touchdown pass to David Gettis, but followed with back-to-back interceptions which Baltimore turned into touchdowns in a 37-13 demolition at Bank of America Stadium.
The play to Gettis -- the second-longest pass completion in franchise history -- cut the Baltimore lead to 20-13 in the fourth quarter, and had people interested.
But when Baltimore followed with Ed Reed's pick, which he lateraled to Dawan Landry for a score, the reality set in.
Ray Lewis' pick-six on the next snap brought it crashing home, ruining what would have been a good story for the guy coach John Fox said "gives us the best chance," to win.
The Ravens hadn't scored a defensive touchdown all year, then scored two in 11 seconds.
St. Pierre, who was promoted from the practice squad Tuesday and leapfrogged Tony Pike, finished the day 13-of-28 for 173 yards, to go along with his three scoring throws.
