Raiders QB Derek Carr listed as questionable for Sunday

10th regular-season meeting. That cut the Ravens lead to 21-10.

That pass set up tight end Vince Mayle's 2-yard touchdown run on an end-around and the Ravens (3-2) got going after being held scoreless in losses the past two weeks.

In his last two games, Flacco has thrown just one touchdown pass and four interceptions. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught six passes for 82 yards and a touchdown. Something has to give in this game.

Why it happened: Of course, the Raiders would have had a better chance to win if quarterback Derek Carr wasn't out with a back injury.

The Ravens have taken two vicious shits on football fields over the last two weeks.

Perhaps what hurt the Raiders the most in this game were a few big plays surrendered in the passing game.

He indirectly refers to consecutive losses at Washington and Denver, games in which the Raiders didn't come close to moving the ball consistently enough to depart with any road success.

The offensive line played a spectacular game, paving the way for 143 rushing yards and keeping Flacco upright.

They've looked nothing like it of late. Siemian started off hot, but the Raiders confused him with a solid rush and coverage, holding Denver to 16 points.

The Raiders defense got beat time and again on third down, and rarely kept the Ravens off the scoreboard.

Once known as one of the league's premier deep passers, Flacco has been frustratingly conservative in recent years.

If interceptions are the byproduct of rush and coverage, the Raiders were woefully deficient in both areas against Baltimore.

"They're in the same position we're in", Raiders safety Karl Joseph said.

Brady had a tough night, but still came up with some good stats. "You just went out and didn't get it done three weeks in a row".

Baltimore is followed to Oakland by the team Los Angeles neither supports or wants, a Chargers side that will enter Sunday's game at the Giants 0-4.

But forget about the struggling Joe Flacco, his team's challenges and his quarterback rating of 65 for a moment. Manuel was sacked three times by the Ravens defense as well.

Baltimore's defense is now tied with the Detroit Lions for the NFL's most takeaways (11) this season and has recorded a league-high nine interceptions through four games. He has seven sacks, three forced fumbles and three recoveries in his past seven home games.
