Ravens won't believe Derek Carr's out until he's officially inactive

In that one, they also lost starting quarterback Derek Carr to a fractured back.

EJ Manuel got the start, while Connor Cook will serve as the backup.

Mack is going to have a big day against the Ravens offensive line.

Both are riding two-game losing streaks that derailed any momentum built from opening the season with back-to-back wins.

Oct 1, 2017; Denver, CO, USA; Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse (73) looks at injured Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (4) in the second half against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Ravens contend the Raiders offense doesn't change much whether it's Carr or Manuel. Lynch has 45 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown this season, averaging 3.4 yards per carry.

Signs point to Carr returning next Sunday against the Chargers, though, since he was able to throw twice in practice before the injury was a week old.

Amerson is sadly dealing with another concussion this season. "That's not the way we're going to win games around here". "We've had some injuries and things like that that have made it challenging, not to mention that Joe was missing all of training camp". Now, the receiver that pass was intended for was Amari Cooper. Since his injury, the Ravens have given up 84.5 more yards rushing per game because the linebackers are not good enough to cover for his absence. The first four seasons of his professional career have come with the Bills, where he had an on-again, off-again relationship with the starting quarterback spot.

Oakland likely won't be throwing as often as they would normally do with Carr, meaning the run game will be how they choose to get things started.

The Ravens and Raiders each started the season 2-0 but have suffered consecutive losses since. Raiders lost eight straight without Carr starting since Matt McGloin beat Houston on November 17, 2013.
