Carr, who suffered a transverse process fracture in Sunday's loss at Denver, is feeling better and throwing the ball well in practice, but the Raiders are anxious about the effect of a game-day hit. Carr won't start in Week 5 and the Raiders will go with new backup quarterback E.J. Manuel in this big home game. It's the first time the Raiders failed to get a first down in consecutive first quarters since 2008. Now the team has lost two in a row and possibly their quarterback for an extended period of time.

The veteran quarterback is arguably struggling through one of the more ineffective stretches of his career, the Ravens having not scored in the first half in losses to the Jaguars and Steelers while only producing points on three of the past 25 possessions led by Flacco.

FAST FACTS: Baltimore has allowed 70 points over its last two games, its most over a two-game span since giving up 70 points in two losses in Weeks 8 and 9 of 2014.

Quarterback Joe Flacco is going to show up. He started three games the past two seasons. Any gains that were made early, however, have been erased during the Raiders' current two-game slide. He's completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 601 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. "[It's been] described to me as a chance to play this week". He gained 12 yards on nine carries in last week's loss to Denver.

However, on his second carry, which gained 13 yards, West appeared to suffer a significant left calf injury. Mack is at the top of his game, coming off two sacks against Denver and with four for the season. However, a closer look shows that these two things are not alike.

Late last season, we saw the Oakland Raiders minus Derek Carr and it was kind of ugly. Cooper is struggling and the Ravens will look to keep it that way, regardless of which side he lines up on.
