Raiders Need To Handle Business Against Ravens, Avoid Third Consecutive Loss

Last Sunday, Carr suffered a transverse process fracture in his back. Not only has the defense regressed after two strong showings, but the offense hasn't gotten much done either. Now the team has lost two in a row and possibly their quarterback for an extended period of time.

Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, left, sacks Oakland Raiders quarterback EJ Manuel during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Denver. The first was an worldwide bowel movement in front of fans at Wembley Stadium in London in a 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Baltimore is followed to Oakland by the team Los Angeles neither supports or wants, a Chargers side that will enter Sunday's game at the Giants 0-4. Against the Steelers last week, Flacco finished the game with a 64.6 quarterback rating. After two injury-plagued seasons, Edwards appears to have come into his own in Year 3. Manuel has thrown 19 interceptions in 29 career games (17 starts). "[It's been] described to me as a chance to play this week".

IEA Boosts Renewable Energy Forecast, but Trump Tax Plan Might Hurt Industry
Looking ahead, IEA said China, India and the USA would account for two-thirds of worldwide renewable expansion by 2022. Though coal will still be the largest source of electricity generation in 2022, renewables cut that gap in half.

Carr being held out from this game shouldn't come as a surprise. He gained 12 yards on nine carries in last week's loss to Denver.

The Raiders will lean heavily on the run game over the next few weeks as EJ Manuel prepares to take over behind center and that may be what Marshawn Lynch needs to get rolling as he has been very quiet in his return to the NFL. He has already had two in the early part of the year. However, a closer look shows that these two things are not alike. "They are not going to change the offense, there is no question about that". Last season in Baltimore, Derek Carr threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree as the Raiders prevailed 28-27. Cooper is struggling and the Ravens will look to keep it that way, regardless of which side he lines up on.
