NFL fans are always up for a good story and two teams that weren’t expected to be so good playing early in the season. The Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens match-up on Sunday afternoon with the two teams a combined 5-1 on the season. Baltimore is undefeated at 3-0 while Oakland is at 2-1 with both teams now eyeing a playoff berth for themselves at the end of the season. This game could go a long way for one team to see if that goal is met. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Raiders beat the Tennessee Titans 17-10 on the road last week and face their third road game in four weeks. Derek Carr has passed for 867 yards and five touchdowns while finding Amari Cooper 15 times for 270 yards to lead the team. Latavius Murray has 153 rushing yards and three touchdowns to pace the team on the ground but a running back by committee approach appears to be happening with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. This should be a good challenge for the Oakland defense to beat the Ravens on the road, knowing a 3-1 start could spell playoffs for the first time since 2002.
The Ravens improved to 3-0 with a 19-17 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars and have their next two games at home. Joe Flacco has thrown for 774 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions while hitting his tight end Dennis Pitta 18 times for 183 yards. Terrance West and Justin Forsett have teamed up for 217 rushing yards over the first three games and must be much better. The defense has been holding this Baltimore team up. Carr is one of the best young quarterbacks in the whole NFL and the Ravens will have their hands full dealing with him and slowing down the Oakland offense.
