Raiders vs. Baltimore Ravens game at a glance

Maybe, but whatever is going on has stripped the Raiders of the swagger and the positive energy that characterized training camp and their first two games. 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. A fumble recovery for a touchdown by Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith early in the game gave Baltimore momentum the Ravens never vanquished. EJ Manuel played well enough. Against Jacksonville in Week 3, they did not complete a pass of more than 8 yards. the strong-armed Flacco had hardly taken any downfield shots as the Ravens had resorted to checkdowns and short slants.

The Oakland Raiders begin life without Derek Carr as they welcome the Baltimore Ravens to town on Sunday. Maybe that's one reason that the overriding emotion in the locker room after the game wasn't gloom as much as it was seething anger.

The Steelers offense was terrible on Sunday at Heinz Field as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was intercept a career-high five times during the game.

The Ravens allowed Le'Veon Bell 144 rushing yards last week, and now they face Marshawn Lynch. Carr is officially listed as questionable for this afternoon's game and was able to practice on a limited basis, but it seems highly unlikely he will play based on the injury.

Bauer, Bruce lift Indians past Yankees, 4-0, in ALDS Game 1
Kluber takes the mound today as the Indians look to head to NY with a 2-0 series lead and Carlos Carrasco on the mound in Game 3. It's probably a tough look if he doesn't back the fellow Cleveland squad publicly despite rooting for the Yankees in his heart.

Joe Flacco bounced back after last weeks blowout, he led his offense past the Raiders in today's matchup. It appears the team may get their star wideout back on the field in Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Childs Walker, reporter: This was the Ravens' best and most important win of the young season.

The Ravens, who lost at home to the Steelers in Week 4, will now enter Week 6 with a 3-2 record. At that point nothing went right for the Raiders leaving them with more questions on just where this team stands. Javorius Allen got the bulk of the work with 73 yards on 23 carries with a touchdown. He had one catch for eight yards.

Eric Weddle: Weddle had seven tackles, four solo and a pass defended. The veteran wide receiver hauled in six balls for 82 yards for the Raiders, scoring a touchdown in the process. One week later, the Ravens rolled to a win in Oakland and the Steelers looked awful in a home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. There is a chance Carr returns in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but for this week, Manuel will have to manage things for the Raiders' offense. Game time is 1:05 PM PT on CBS. Not exactly what the Raiders were hoping for. Better luck next week, guys.
