Oakland Raiders vs Baltimore Ravens

Derrick Carr With Derek Carr out, Ravens prepare for Raiders backup QB EJ Manuel
Spencer Simpson | 09 October, 2017, 00:32

The Ravens look to get their offense rolling against an improved but still susceptible Oakland Raiders pass defense in a game that figures to be relatively low scoring considering the Ravens offensive woes, their stout defense, and the Raiders being without their franchise quarterback.

However, on his second carry, which gained 13 yards, West appeared to suffer a significant left calf injury. Manuel, a first-round pick by Buffalo in 2013, began his rookie season a starter but was benched the next year and started just three games the past two seasons. Amerson was cleared after going through the National Football League protocol and is expected to play, though he remains officially listed as questionable. I think he gets closer to 20. If Oakland wants to avoid a third straight defeat it's going to take a total team effort; It also wouldn't hurt if the coaching staff actually put together a solid game plan.

As the week goes on, continue to check the current line, and spread at Sportsbook Review. He has struggled in that role, throwing one touchdown pass and four interceptions.

The Oakland Raiders are still preparing to start backup quarterback EJ Manuel on Sunday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter, though injured starter Derek Carr has made progress in his recovery from a fractured bone in his back. Opponents have done a good job shutting down Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree in recent weeks, so Roberts could very well be the X factor in the passing game. However, head coach John Harbaugh has hinted that Smith will back in the lineup against the Oakland Raiders. Instead, he's practiced Thursday and Friday and is now listed as questionable.

The last time the Raiders played at the Coliseum, it turned into a homecoming party for Marshawn Lynch.

So what do the Ravens make of Carr's situation? He's been targeted 31 times yet just has 12 catches.
