Derek Carr a game-time decision for Week 5?

With Derek Carr out, Ravens prepare for Raiders backup QB EJ Manuel

Teams that start 3-3 make it 38 percent of the time. Ravens have been outscored 70-16 in last two games and seek to avoid losing three straight by at least 10 points for second time in franchise history. Their one silver lining coming into today's game is that they are facing a struggling Colts team that has performed nearly as poorly as them, which means they might have a chance today.

Our models project Manuel to post 228.0 passing yards, with 1.2 passing touchdowns and 1.1 interceptions. However, the Raiders would like to rely on Marshawn Lynch to anchor the offense, despite his recent struggles. As a result, Baltimore will stack the box and force Manuel to throw. Raiders 2 for 23 on third downs past two weeks.

This encounter will see the basement team of the NFC West face the worst of the AFC South division as both teams look to find a glimmer of hope from their already devastating looking seasons.

Defensively, the Raiders will look to get after slumping Flacco similar to the way they did Trevor Siemian a week ago. After putting up 14 points in the early stages against the Raiders, that's a good start.

The team's receiving corps was one of the most talented in the league a year ago with Crabtree leading the way along with Amari Cooper and Seth Roberts. "We've had some injuries and things like that that have made it challenging, not to mention that Joe was missing all of training camp. That's all we need to do", tight end Lee Smith said. That's a massive downgrade, even though Cooper has been a ghost regardless of the quarterback. "The time is now, and hopefully we can get it going this week".

Crabtree has played well when he's been on the field for the Raiders this season. Oakland has given up 10 sacks through games (seven in the past two weeks) after giving up 18 all of last season.

"When you fall to 2-2, you have to get things going", Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace said.

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.

Manuel played well in spurts after replacing Carr against the Broncos but is 6-11 in his career as a starter. Mosley has 18 tackles in the past two meetings. Baltimore leads National Football League with nine INTs; Oakland one of four teams with none. In 2015, Oakland beat the Ravens 37-33 at the Oakland Coliseum.

Bell had struggled in Pittsburgh's first three games before the outburst. It was their fewest rushing yards since they ran for 22 in a home loss to Tampa Bay in 2012.
