Manuel in for Carr as Raiders host Ravens

Manuel in for Carr as Raiders host Ravens”

Joe Flacco is coming off perhaps the worst two-game stretch of his career. Players always think they're ahead of schedule, but Carr was handed a flexible timeline at 2-6 weeks.

The Baltimore Ravens have been battling injuries all season long and now have 18 player on injured reserve.

Manuel went 11-17 for 106 yards after replacing Carr during Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos. He is definitely going to run the same offense. Cooper has the physical attributes to be one of the league's best, but he's struggled with consistency and could have a hard time against a Ravens pass defense that is giving up just 222 passing yards a game.

When Carr broke his right fibula last Christmas Eve and backup Matt McGloin didn't make it through the Denver game before being injured, the Raiders were forced to rely on rookie third-stringer Connor Cook. We've seen that each and every day in practice.

Last week, the team was without arguably their best offensive player with wide receiver Michael Crabtree dealing with a chest injury.

The NFL's No. 6 rushing team a year ago, the Raiders are now ranked 24th at 86.2 yards per game and leading rusher Marshawn Lynch has 45 carries for 151 yards and is averaging 3.4 yards per carry. There's no doubt that Downing will look to get his veteran running back going to alleviate some of the pressure on Manuel. The Ravens try to ground and pound their opponents with a rushing attack that features Alex Collins, Terrance West and Javorius Allen.

Marshawn Lynch has rushed for just 151 yards through four games, and 76 of those came Week 1. The once-promising team led by young stars Derek Carr and Khalil Mack has struggled thus far with injuries also starting to take a toll. When the teams met at the Coliseum in 2015, Carr completed 30 of 45 passes and had a game-winning touchdown pass to Seth Roberts in a 37-33 Raiders win. The week after that, Oakland hosts the now undefeated Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.
