While they kept it competitive, the Silver and Black fell at home to the visiting Baltimore Ravens, 30-17.
Flacco showed off his improvisational skills in the first quarter when he tripped on a drop back after a shotgun snap. 90 of those rushing yards came courtesy of Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette and they came via a long scoring run play with 1:47 left in the game.
To extend even further, only 15 teams that have fallen three games under.500 in Week 5 or later made the postseason. "I'm not necessarily looking for a second chance".
"I just knew last night when I saw this play call, if we get this play I knew it would be on me to start the game off", Wallace said.
Oakland was inconsistent offensively with EJ Manuel at quarterback.
Asked if Carr has been pushing to play Sunday, Del Rio said, "Yeah".
Two different Ravens (2-2) squads have appeared during the season. Joe Flacco finally chose to throw the ball down the field and it paid off on Sunday.
The Raiders couldn't adjust much with so few defensive backs available, putting them at risk most of the day.
Key players slumping: Oakland running back Marshawn Lynch was better than he was the past two games, but he had just 43 yards on 12 carries. Though he joked that he wanted the ball more, he kept a confident and positive attitude. He had just one catch for 8 yards on two targets against the Ravens.
Cooper didn't stick around to talk, but Manuel said Cooper's lack of action was a result of the flow of the game.
Maybe it's not yet panic time in Oakland, after the Raiders lost their third in a row Sunday. He is on pace for just 41 catches this season. His two on Sunday gives him 25 for his career. "We've got time to turn it around but it's all about if we want it". The Ravens are getting a ton of love here and the line could keep moving down but I think Oakland can do enough to keep this close throughout and then hit the cover late in the fourth.
Baltimore gets off the hook with its third win of the season. Oakland held the Ravens to two offensive touchdowns and three Justin Tucker field goals. Carr threw four touchdown passes in that game, three of them to wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who missed last week's game because of a chest injury but should return today.
