Derek Carr's role Sunday still uncertain for Raiders

Baltimore also has lost two games in a row after starting out 2-0. "So I'm never going to waver", Flacco said.

It's awesome what a little change in play calling can do.

What I didn't like: Punting on fourth-and-3 from Baltimore's 44-yard line, while trailing by 10 points and with less than nine minutes to play.

"I just knew last night when I saw this play call, if we get this play I knew it would be on me to start the game off", Wallace said.

While the Raiders coach believes Carr will be recovered from his back injury and able to start next Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, a healthy quarterback isn't a cure-all for what ails his club.

After the increasingly restless crowd showered the Raiders with boos on their opening two possessions of the second half - both three and out - Manuel led an impressive 65-yard, 12-play drive that ended with Lynch's TD burst. The hope was that they would start to show more life, but that wasn't meant to be. "I really think that's what he did, just kind of looked every man in the eye and wanted to see how we would respond in this moment". "You've gotta keep fighting, keep fighting and try to overcome it". "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". Joe Flacco looked like the total Joe for the first time this season. Flacco was hit the fifth-fewest times in the league entering the game. We later found out it was not your typical back injury. We've got 11 more games.

The critical string of matchups at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum begins against a Ravens side that's also 2-2 but has been outscored 70-16 in the past two weeks. The Raven finally got some production from the deep passing game, but the Raiders have been bad over the top all season and were missing two of their top three cornerbacks Sunday. The unit did not respond, allowing the Ravens (3-2) to march 75 yards down the field for a touchdown on five plays spanning just over two minutes. But he has been a non-factor of late. The Raiders combined to have 108 rushing yards, but that was on 25 carries.

The Colts are at the foot of the AFC South division, however, if they can win here today they would move to 2-3, and with no other team in the division recording a winning record through the opening four games, they would still be in with a chance with more than three months remaining.

BIG WEEK: Smith was having a good week even before his fumble return for a touchdown. Then the Ravens continued the drive and got in the end zone.

Although there was a big fuss after running back Marshawn Lynch joining the Raiders it seems the veteran stills needs some time to make big plays this season. "It's on us as players, coaches everybody from the top down to get this run game going".
