Raiders Need To Handle Business Against Ravens, Avoid Third Consecutive Loss

Jeremy Maclin expects to play Week 5

Carr broke a bone in his back late in the third quarter of Oakland's 16-10 loss in Denver this past Sunday.

Oakland's coaching staff is preparing backup E.J. Manuel to start against Baltimore, according to a national report.

It would also help if the Raiders can get the running game going. WR Michael Crabtree (bruised lung) is dealing with his own health issue.

The game should also be a good litmus test for Oakland's banged-up secondary, even though the Ravens haven't had much success throwing the ball.

The veteran quarterback is arguably struggling through one of the more ineffective stretches of his career, the Ravens having not scored in the first half in losses to the Jaguars and Steelers while only producing points on three of the past 25 possessions led by Flacco.

Two different Ravens (2-2) squads have appeared during the season. This means that for the month or so the two seasons overlap, the Raiders play their home games on a field that includes a baseball diamond. He completed just eight passes for 28 yards two weeks ago in a 44-7 loss to Jacksonville and was only slightly better last week against Pittsburgh in a 26-9 defeat when he threw two interceptions for a second straight game and averaged 4.8 yards per attempt.

I take a look at three key matchups you should be watching come game time.

Last week against Denver, Oakland gave up 143 rushing yards. Lynch has gained 30 yards on 15 carries in the past two games while the Raiders have managed just 56 yards total on the ground.

One positive has been All-Pro Khalil Mack. He has already had two in the early part of the year. He has eight games with at least two sacks since entering the National Football League in 2014, tied for third-most in that span. However, a closer look shows that these two things are not alike.

"I'm a defensive lineman, so the way we rush EJ Manuel versus Derek Carr may be a little different". "They are not going to change the offense, there is no question about that".
