Small chance Derek Carr plays for Raiders on Sunday

Small chance Derek Carr plays for Raiders on Sundayā€¯

If Manuel struggles, could we see second-year pro Connor Cook on Sunday afternoon.

MANUEL'S MOMENT: Manuel gets another shot to prove he can play in the National Football League after failing in Buffalo.

Baltimore has lost to the Raiders in each of the past two seasons and Carr has been a major reason why. Oakland has converted 2 of 23 third-down tries on offense the past two games as the running game hasn't stagnated, leading to too many long-yardage situations.

"I'm looking at it as an opportunity that's before me right now", Manuel told the Sacramento Bee.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has thrown one touchdown, four interceptions, and been sacked six times in the last two games; However, he seems to play well when he faces the Oakland defense.

"I think every home game is a big home game", Raiders cornerback TJ Carrie said. "We just can not be turning the ball over", head coach John Harbaugh said.

The Ravens look to get their offense rolling against an improved but still susceptible Oakland Raiders pass defense in a game that figures to be relatively low scoring considering the Ravens offensive woes, their stout defense, and the Raiders being without their franchise quarterback. Since then, Lynch and the running game have been quiet, averaging 2 yards a carry in the previous two weeks. "We've got to make sure we take care of our house".

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.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio does not consider this a homefield advantage. Williams has been sidelined with a foot injury, so Michael Pierce is attempting to fill the void. Joe Flacco has struggled to get the passing game going and will have another hard time staying upright in the pocket this week.
