Five Impressions From The Ravens' Win At Oakland

As starting quarterback Derek Carr sustaining a back injury last week against Denver, the Raiders will have their hopes on backup QB EJ Manuel when he hits the field against Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Los Angeles claimed its first win of the season Sunday, scoring a touchdown in the closing minutes to seal a 27-22 comeback victory over the New York Giants.

The Ravens' defense came to play as well with cornerback Jimmy Smith grabbing a fumble and returning it 47 yards for a touchdown on the Raiders' opening drive.

The game should also be a good litmus test for Oakland's banged-up secondary, even though the Ravens haven't had much success throwing the ball.

Just a week ago, the Ravens were reeling from their second straight embarrassing loss, and it appeared the Pittsburgh Steelers were primed to run away with the AFC North after routing the Ravens, 26-9, at M&T Bank Stadium.

Last week was a complete disaster for both the Baltimore Ravens (2-2) and the Oakland Raiders (2-2). As far as I'm concerned the Raider defensive game plan should be simple; Control Flacco, contain the run, get a turnover (or two), and win the game. Flacco missed the entire preseason with a back injury and hasn't looked right all season. The game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET, and can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below). We've got time to turn it around, but it's all about if we want it. "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 a lot of trust in a defense that had been shredded all day, save for a pair of three-and-outs to start the second half, when Baltimore went ultraconservative.

Spotlight on: Seth Roberts. In 2015, Oakland beat the Ravens 37-33 at the Oakland Coliseum. Then we came out and caught them on the first play. Receiver Amari Cooper's woes continue.

Oakland (2-3) played without Derek Carr due to a back injury sustained against the Denver Broncos on October 1. Wallace's 133 yards were more than he had in his previous four games combined.

The Steelers offense was bad on Sunday at Heinz Field as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was intercept a career-high five times during the game. He's been targeted 31 times yet just has 12 catches. However, Flacco and the Ravens have struggled as a team in recent seasons and in particular the quarterback has not been at his best lately. 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. That led to many Raiders plays breaking down, putting them in tough third-down situations.
