The Ravens are at 6-2 with the second-best record in the AFC but it most of the wins haven't been very easy. After losing to the Eagles in Week 2, the Ravens have four wins where they outscored their opponents only by a total of 13 points.
The Raiders will be a good warm up for the Ravens. In Week 10 and Week 12 the Ravens face their arch-rival Pittsburgh Steelers and could use a cushion over the team they only lead by one game in the AFC North.
The Ravens have some high profile injuries to their defense, but the Raiders might not be a team suitable to take advantage of it. Both running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are dealing with high ankle sprains and are not expected to play.
To make up for it, in a 42-32 loss against Tampa Bay quarterback Carson Palmer tossed a career high 61 attempts for 414 yards and four touchdowns.
