Raiders 'preparing for E.J. Manuel to Start' Vs Ravens

Oakland is a little more banged up than we realized.

Last Sunday, Derek Carr took a hard blow to the back and ended up leaving the game with a fracture in his back. Carr left the game with a back spasm. Expect Lynch to get 20 carries this time, with the Raiders looking to sustain drives and increase their offensive snaps.

Like with most everything in sports, numbers have come to define the Raiders. When the teams met at the Coliseum in 2015, Carr completed 30 of 45 passes and threw the winning touchdown pass to Seth Roberts in a 37-33 win. "We just can not be turning the ball over", head coach John Harbaugh said.

When do things get serious regarding the postseason after just a quarter of the schedule? You can see in the Denver game and in the preseason, he runs the offense well. "If we can get the running game going and everything like that, as well as the passing game, we'll be in good shape".

Over the first two games of the season, Oakland's defense appeared to be an improved unit. The Ravens trailed Jacksonville at halftime, 23-0, and fell behind, 19-0, against the Steelers. He then moved the Raiders across midfield while seeking a late, go-ahead touchdown before throwing a game-sealing interception on a deep shot to Amari Cooper. This is the third straight meeting between these two teams, with the Raiders winners of the last two matchups. Any gains that were made early, however, have been erased during the Raiders' current two-game slide. Oakland held to 10 or fewer points in back-to-back games for first time since 2009 when it happened three straight. Flacco missed the entire preseason with a back injury and hasn't looked right all season. If we come out strong, it will be very good for us to pick up that momentum.

Carr was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday.

It's all a blur with these things. "No question", Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. "That's all we need to do", tight end Lee Smith said. I think they are still going to try to win the game.

Consider: Since the 1990 season, teams that began 4-2 have made the playoffs nearly 63 percent of the time.

Once upon a time, some people considered Flacco among the group of elite quarterbacks in the National Football League, thanks in part to his success as a starter and helping lead his team to a Super Bowl title in 2012.

Teams that start 2-4 ... just over 8.5 percent. The team is still far too dependent on its quarterback.
