Headline: Surprisingly Unflattering Defenses Collide – Raiders vs. Ravens in Week 10

The Oakland Raiders head out on the road this Sunday looking to make up a little ground in the AFC Wild Card picture. Their task this week is to tackle what has looked to be a surprisingly beatable Baltimore team whose defense will be missing Ray Lewis yet again.

Injuries are a huge storyline ahead of Sunday’s contest – the Raiders are also dealing with a banged up rushing corp. and they may be forced to start their third stringer in hopes that he can exploit a Ravens run defense that has been gashed this season.

The Oakland Raiders face a virtual must win game on Saturday but enter with a whole lot of question marks – namely the running game, its ineffectiveness and the myriad of injuries it sustained last week in a home loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Darren McFadden and Mike Goodsen both sustained ankle sprains and are highly questionable this week – it may be a good omen when it comes to McFadden – not such a good thing when it comes to Mike Goodsen.

Oakland enters Sunday’s game with the 31st ranked running game, averaging 77.25 yards per game – absolutely shocking! Darren McFadden has been miserable averaging just 3.3 yards per carry and scoring just twice this season. Oakland’s Offensive Line isn’t doing him any favors but there is no doubt that McFadden and the Raiders are flopping when it comes to rush offense.

The Oakland passing game has picked up the slack so far this season – 7th in the NFL and averaging 281 yards per game. Carson Palmer has completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions while being sacked 14 times. Brandon Meyers has 39 catches and two touchdowns, Denarius Moore has 30 catches and four touchdowns, and Marcel Reece has 26 catches and a touchdown.

Oakland’s defense has had a difficult time so far this year to go along with the struggles in the running game. They allow 28.63 points per game, good for 28th in the NFL and they are 21st in both run and pass defense.

The Baltimore Ravens may be the least impressive 6-2 team in recent memory. The offense and the defense are nowhere near where most put them at this point of the season. Injuries have something to do with it but lack of execution can also be blamed. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

After nine weeks the Ravens have the 15th ranked passing game and the surprisingly low 16th ranked running game. Joe Flacco has completed 59.8 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions while being sacked 19 times. Ray Rice is averaging 4.7 yards per carry with six touchdowns as well as catching 31 passes out of the backfield – not good enough if this team hopes to attain their rather lofty goals.

How about the Ravens defense? They are a staggering 28th against the run and 22nd against the pass. Nobody could have seen that one coming – teams are gashing them on the ground and having their way with the Ravens in both the pass and run game. Terrell Suggs should almost be back into game shape but the loss of Ray Lewis is obviously an enormous blow to a defense that had been one of the best in the league but has faded into mediocrity.

Betting Prediction

• The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Oakland’s last 8 games when playing Baltimore
• The total has gone OVER in 10 of Oakland’s last 15 games
• Oakland is 3-6 ATS in its last 9 games
• Oakland is 4-9 SU in its last 13 games
• Baltimore is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games at home
• Baltimore is 9-1 SU in its last 10 games when playing Oakland
• Baltimore is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games
• Baltimore is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing at home against Oakland

The Ravens have been letting teams hang around as of late – only a good second half last week allowed them to stretch the lead against a Cleveland team that had no business hanging around. Baltimore plays Pittsburgh two of the next three games. I can see them looking past Oakland just a bit in this one, making for a close game. Oakland will score on the Ravens defense and the Ravens unflattering offense should do just enough to win but not to cover.

Pick: Oakland Raiders to cover the 7 1/2
