Raiders trail Ravens 48-17 after third quarter

After three quarters of play, the Oakland Raiders trail the Baltimore Ravens, 48-17.

The Raiders have been unable to curb Baltimore's offensive onslaught, as the Ravens poured in 21 more points in the third quarter compared to seven for Oakland.

Baltimore struck first in the quarter on a 47-yard touchdown strike from Joe Flacco to wide receiver Torrey Smith. The Raiders responded a little more than three minutes later thanks to a 30-yard touchdown from Carson Palmer to Denarius Moore, but it was all Ravens for the rest of the period.

Smith brought in his second touchdown pass of the game following an Oakland turnover on a punt return, their second turnover of the game. Baltimore struck again a few minutes later on a 9-play, 73-yard drive coming after a three-and-out by the Raiders.

A loss against the Ravens would drop Oakland to 3-6 on the season.


Ravens up 27-10 on Raiders at halftime

The Baltimore Ravens lead the Oakland Raiders, 27-10, at halftime in M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The Ravens have had an answer for each Raiders score thus far, and Baltimore built on its lead in the second quarter.

Oakland trailed 10-0 early, but looked poised to get back into the game when Michael Huff intercepted Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco deep in Ravens territory. The Raiders offense couldn't take full advantage, as they settled for a short field goal from Sebastian Janikowsi.

Baltimore answered right back on their ensuing possession. Flacco hit Julio Jones on a 47-yard pass to put the Ravens into Oakland territory, then Dennis Pitta caught a 5-yard touchdown to cap the 80-yard scoring drive.

The Ravens would add a 34-yard field goal from Justin Tucker after Carson Palmer was intercepted by Paul Kruger. Palmer would redeem himself soon after, leading the Raiders on a touchdown drive before halftime,

Darrius Heyward-Bey caught a 55-yard touchdown pass, in which he forced a missed tackle by safter Ed Reed, to cut into Baltmore's lead with 1:46 to go in the second quarter. Palmer has put up big yardage numbers, with 198 yards in the first half.

The Ravens would score quickly in the two-minute drill, and extend their lead back to 17 when Ray Rice scored on a 7-yard run with 27 seconds left before the break.


Raiders trail Ravens, 10-0, after 1st quarter

The Baltimore Ravens lead the Oakland Raiders, 10-0, after one quarter of play at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The Ravens have dominated early, and quarterback Joe Flacco completed five of his first six passes for 73 yards.

Oakland moved the ball into Ravens territory on their initial possession, but the drive stalled when quarterback Carson Palmer stumbled and fell after the snap on a 4th and 1. Baltimore would use the good field position to drive for a 48-yard field goal from Justin Tucker.

After a Raiders three-and-out, the Ravens would drive down the field for the game's first touchdown. Flacco set up himself for a one-yard touchdown run when he hit Ed Dickson with a 40-yard pass up the seam.

The Raiders have relied primarily on the passing group through the first 15 minutes. Palmer has completed 7 of 9 for 67 yards. Oakland has the ball after converting a third down as the second quarter begins.

McFadden, three other miss Wednesday's practice

Raiders must slow down Ravens ground game

On Sunday, the Raiders completely failed to stop Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin as he had a career day, rushing for 251 yards and four touchdowns. This week the Raiders face a running back who is even better than Martin: Baltimore's Ray Rice.

Rice is the engine that makes the Ravens offense run smoothly. QB Joe Flacco is rising to an elite status, but without Rice this offense wouldn't be nearly as good. Rice has rushed for 622 yards and six touchdowns so far this year and he will be seeking to kick the Raiders defense while it is down. The Ravens offensive line is tough and effective with excellent players such as Michael Oher and Marshal Yanda. They collectively excel at both run and pass blocking. They certainly have the ability to shut down the Raiders' defensive line, so it may be up to Miles Burris and the rest of the linebackers to stop Rice this week.

Martin is a rookie and had never had a professional game like he had in Week 9 so he may have been underestimated, but Rice has a history of success and he will be targeted by the defense. If they can slow Rice at all, Flacco will be forced to try to air it out. While that is not necessarily a disadvantage for Baltimore, it's better for Oakland than Rice gashing them all day long.


Raiders no good now, but could be good later

The Oakland Raiders made major changes in the off season that resulted in a disappointing 2012 campaign thus far, but it has put them on track to be a good team
