Derek Carr is inactive for the Raiders' game against the Ravens

Derek Carr is inactive for the Raiders' game against the Ravens

Carr, who suffered a transverse process fracture in Sunday's loss at Denver, is feeling better and throwing the ball well in practice, but the Raiders are anxious about the effect of a game-day hit.

EJ Manuel got the start, while Connor Cook will serve as the backup. Much will be expected of the two in the game the Raiders as well.

Each team needs to stop a skid, while trying to extend the other's. WR Michael Crabtree (bruised lung) is dealing with his own health issue. He reclaimed the starting job the next season but was benched after four games and made just three more starts through 2016. The first was an global bowel movement in front of fans at Wembley Stadium in London in a 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Quarterback Joe Flacco is going to show up.

In beating Baltimore each of the past two seasons, Carr has completed almost 68 percent of his throws for 550 yards. "He has definitely come into his own, but EJ Manuel has also been an National Football League quarterback, and I think the last time we played him, they beat us". The Raiders are now 24th in the league against the run at 120 yards per game.

The Ravens hold a 6-3 lead in the overall series between the teams, but the Raiders have won the past two meetings, including a 28-27 win at M&T Bank Stadium last season. Mack is at the top of his game, coming off two sacks against Denver and with four for the season.

Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.

Meanwhile, the Ravens got blasted in London by the Jaguars and at home by the Steelers by a combined score of 70-16. "They are not going to change the offense, there is no question about that".
