Best Ravens quotes following their Week 5 victory

Smiles all around after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Raiders in Oakland. Through five weeks of regular season action, the Ravens winning formula has become crystal clear - establish an early lead by throwing to the wideouts, let an aggressive defense force takeaways and salt the game away with a commitment to the run. Week 5 was a momentous victory for Baltimore. Veteran receiver Mike Wallace was basking his the glow of his 133-yard afternoon during his postgame interview: “It was exciting to get the offense going. We have been starting slow the last couple weeks.”“I’ve been...

Raiders’ Jack Del Rio: `I thought they were better than us in the trenches’

Raiders’ Jack Del Rio: `I thought they were better than us in the trenches’

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio and Reggie McKenzie are firm believers that games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage. That's what made a 30-17 loss to Baltimore that much harder to take -- the Ravens were the more physical team.

Report: Ravens RG Matt Skura will likely miss 2-4 weeks

The Ravens right guard Matt Skura will likely be out for 2-4 weeks, per Jeff Zrebiec. MRI taken on Ravens RG Matt Skura's right knee revealed an MCL sprain, per source. Will probably be sidelined in 2 to 4-week range— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) October 9, 2017 Baltimore’s offensive line played extremely well in week five against the Raiders, with and without Skura. This is not a huge loss for the Ravens, but it will mean that rookie offensive linemen Jermaine Eluemunor will likely get the starting nod. Since Marshal Yanda was ruled out for the season, Eluemunor was battling...

Baltimore Ravens: Two successes, one needs improvement

The Baltimore Ravens dominated the Oakland Raiders in week five. The Ravens went into Oakland on a two-game losing streak and a lot of questions that needed to be answered. They answered every single question and more. Baltimore won 30-17 and the score may be a little misleading. Aggressive Defense The defense was back to their dominant, aggressive form. Dean Pees was extremely aggressive with his play-calling. The most memorable play was the double safety blitz that resulted in a Tony Jefferson sack. The defense struggled to stopped the run, but other than a few big plays from Michael...

Raiders’ quarterback controversy quickly laid to rest

Hold the Raiders’ quarterback controversy. It died Sunday before it started. Derek Carr was ordinary-to-lousy in the Raiders’ previous two games before being injured. Cue backup EJ Manuel, who came to the Raiders after fading badly in Buffalo, where he’d been a first-round pick. Had Manuel sparkled and led the Raiders to a win Sunday, busting their mini-slump, it would have made for interesting discussions. Instead, the Raiders lost to the Ravens, and Manuel was overall not scintillating. He completed 13 of 26 passes for 159 yards and...

Game grades for Raiders’ home loss to Ravens

Offense EJ Manuel completed only half of his passes (13-of-26) for 159 yards and was sacked three times in his first Oakland start. Marshawn Lynch gained 43 yards on 12 carries, his best game in three weeks. Has anyone seen Amari Cooper (two targets, one catch)? Defense Ravens WR Mike Wallace had two 50-yard-plus catches on his way to his highest production (133 yards) in more than six years. Joe Flacco, hardly known for his elusiveness, wasn’t sacked, and the Ravens converted 7 of 14 third downs...

PFF: Joe Flacco, O-line and defense all shine against Raiders

PFF: Joe Flacco, O-line and defense all shine against Raiders

Joe Flacco had one of his best games in recent memory yesterday, dropping 222 yards on 16 completions. He consistently put the ball in places to make his receivers succeed, and he also didn’t turn it over, the first time in ten games without an interception. PFF took notice of his deep passing attack, as he has struggled through the season thus far. Yesterday, though, he completed four three deep shots for 133 yards. The offensive line was outstanding today, in large part due to the dominance of Ronnie Stanley, whom recorded an 83.8 grade, highest on the team. He only allowed a single...

Facts and figures from Raiders’ loss to Ravens

Number of the day 2 Previous seasons in franchise history — out of 30 — in which the Raiders won two or fewer of their first five games and still reached the playoffs. They first did it in 1970, when a 2-2-1 start became an 8-4-2 season (and an eventual loss to the Colts in the AFC Championship Game). In 1980, they began 2-3, but finished 9-7 and won Super Bowl XV in Tom Flores’ first season as head coach. Next game The Raiders remain at home to play...

Ravens vs. Raiders: 1 MVP, 9 Winners, and 1 Loser

Today’s game featured a Baltimore Raven squad with balance on offense and defense. Highlights were produced on both ends, and the game was exciting until the end. MVP: Joe Flacco I debated a few players here, but ultimately, the franchise quarterback receives this award. From the first play of the game in which he delivered a strike to Mike Wallace, I felt confident in the Ravens quarterback. In fact, he delivered maybe the best highlight of the game! Joe Flacco won this game, and made plays when called upon. Winners: Ronnie Stanley — Singling him out, because the man played some...

Ravens offense starts the game with a bang, find the end zone on opening drive

Yes, a deep ball! The last two weeks, the Ravens offense has been anemic. One of the biggest reasons why was the inability and unwillingness to throw the ball down the field. But in Week 5, it didn’t take long for the Ravens to change that. TD Ravens. pic.twitter.com/YKlY9o4FYu— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) October 8, 2017 Joe Flacco received the snap, and handed the ball off to Vince Mayle.

Ravens vs. Raiders: Gamethread

A strange matchup lies ahead, as the Baltimore Ravens head to Oakland and face the Carr-less Raiders. After suffering a transverse process fracture, Derek Carr will be sidelined for 2-4 weeks, leaving Baltimore to face E.J. Manuel. The last time the Ravens played against E.J. Manuel was against the Buffalo Bills. Joe Flacco threw five interceptions, and the Ravens ended up losing. The hope, today, is Joe doesn’t continue his current streak of 10 straight games with an interception, ceasing the bad play and putting points on the board. It won’t be easy though, as Khalil Mack must be...
