Carr not expected to play

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

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

In the past three meetings, Flacco has 1,023 passing yards (341 per game), six TDs and two interceptions.

Making matters worse is Derek Carr is out with a back injury for multiple weeks, and EJ Manuel will start in his place.

Baltimore has had all sorts of trouble on offense and now the defense is going in the wrong direction too. "The nice thing is we know enough about EJ Manuel as a quarterback to know what those things have been in the past, at least". 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.

Left tackle Donald Penn's holdout hasn't appeared to impact his play personally, but the lack of continuity does seem to have affected the unit as a whole.

The Tesla CEO responded to a tweet asking if he could do in and rebuild the US territory's electricity system with one of his own. But it's an expensive one, and it's completely unclear how the nation of 3 million people would come up with the funds.

The team that just a month ago was a popular Super Bowl pick at local sports books suddenly finds itself in an uncertain position regarding early playoff chatter, and three home games in the next 11 days could either brighten such prospects or altogether terminate them. It's the first time the Raiders failed to get a first down in consecutive first quarters since 2008.

Manuel stepped in last week after Carr was injured in Denver.

"I tried to come in here and have them work on it", said Carr after the game. Since then, Lynch and the running game have been quiet, averaging 2 yards a carry in the previous two weeks. He gained 12 yards on nine carries in last week's loss to Denver. "You definitely don't want to [attempt to] get back on track with this guy", Suggs said, unbothered by Lynch's slow start. He ran all over them, so Marshawn Lynch has to be champing at the bit heading into this one. He never stops turning, and he breaks tackles.

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