With Derek Carr out, Ravens prepare for Raiders backup QB EJ Manuel

The Ravens have won six of the nine regular-season games in the overall series with the Oakland Raiders, but the last two meetings have gone to the Raiders. For Baltimore, they have to hope quarterback Joe Flacco can find his rhythm and get them rolling once again.

This team suddenly has a lot more issues than anybody thought they had coming into the season, when the defense was thought to be the team's Achilles Heel - and not unjustly so.

"They're in the same position we're in", Raiders safety Karl Joseph said. I think they are still going to try to win the game. "We have to be ready". In the Jacksonville game the Ravens found themselves barely going through the motions after getting down early. "You can't wait till Week 14, Week 15 or Week 16". This isn't great and hopefully he gets better soon. He started three games the past two seasons. He showed some good signs in relief last week, completing 11 of 17 passes for 106 yards.

Backup EJ Manual will start in his place. He's also facing a defense that leads the National Football League with nine interceptions. Crabtree will return to action after sitting out one game with a bruised lung.

Jackson has been the worst starting offensive lineman for the Raiders this season.

The Ravens allowed Le'Veon Bell 144 rushing yards last week, and now they face Marshawn Lynch. Baltimore will need to establish the running game and likely will give Alex Collins another opportunity. That 4-week stretch would leave just 1 more game before Oakland's Week 10 bye. He's been a drop machine and has produced fewer yards than Lynch, 110, and scored just one touchdown.

"He has been in ups and downs before; he has been doing it 10 years now", coach John Harbaugh said. Howard, released by the Raiders during the offseason, has stepped in as the starter on the right side and has plenty of practice and training camp experience working against Mack.
