Derek Carr's role Sunday still uncertain for Raiders

Derrick Carr

Making matters worse is Derek Carr is out with a back injury for multiple weeks, and EJ Manuel will start in his place. One streak will end this week; the Raiders have not intercepted a pass this season. Winston finished the game with 334 yards, completing 26 throws from 46 attempts.

KEYS TO THE GAME: The Ravens have been forced to play from behind over the past two weeks, putting more pressure on quarterback Joe Flacco to make plays.

"I'm looking at it as an opportunity that's before me right now", Manuel told the Sacramento Bee. Manuel, a first-round pick by Buffalo in 2013, began his rookie season a starter but was benched the next year and started just three games the past two seasons.

Losers of two straight, the Baltimore Ravens (2-2) head cross-country to Oakland to try to turn things around against the Raiders (2-2). "[It's been] described to me as a chance to play this week".

The Raiders need to get the crowd into the game early; That means the squad needs to get off to a fast start at home. Joe Flacco has struggled to get the passing game going and will have another hard time staying upright in the pocket this week. "We just have to get after the quarterback". Lynch hasn't done much - 45 carries, 151 yards and a touchdown - and he has yet to carry the football at least 20 times in a game. However, Flacco and the Ravens have struggled as a team in recent seasons and in particular the quarterback has not been at his best lately.

After the loss to Denver, coach Jack Del Rio said his starting quarterback had back spasms, meaning he apparently didn't take any medical classes, either, or was just doing a fine job exhibiting that league-mandated statute about supreme paranoia when asked about injuries. "It hasn't been good enough and it's led directly to losses, two losses".

Late last season, we saw the Oakland Raiders minus Derek Carr and it was kind of ugly. Brandon Williams is still dealing with a foot injury and Maxx Williams an ankle.
