NFL Week 5: Ravens Vs. Raiders By The Numbers

October 6, 2017
The Ravens travel to Oakland having lost two in a row after a 2-0 start. They've  been outscored 70-16 in those two losses. But they face a Raiders team that has also dropped two straight and will be missing starting quarterback Derek Carr, who's out with a back injury.

The Ravens hold a 6-3 lead in the overall series between the teams, but the Raiders have won the past two meetings, including a 28-27 win at M&T Bank Stadium last season.

Here are some other key numbers heading into Sunday's game:

0: Points scored in the first half by the Ravens during their two-game losing streak. The Ravens trailed Jacksonville at halftime, 23-0, and fell behind, 19-0, against the Steelers. Overall, the Ravens are tied for 30th in the league with 15.0 points per game.

1: Times the Ravens have faced quarterback EJ Manuel, who is expected to start for the Raiders in place of Carr. Manuel is 6-11 as a starter throughout five NFL seasons. In 2013 with the Buffalo Bills, Manuel went 10-for-22 for 167 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions as the Bills beat the Ravens, 23-20. Joe Flacco threw a career-high five interceptions in that game.

3: Number of undrafted players starting on the Ravens' offensive line. The Ravens line, from left to right, is composed of  first-round tackle Ronnie Stanley, undrafted guard James Hurst, sixth-round center Ryan Jensen, undrafted guard Matt Skura and undrafted tackle Austin Howard. Both projected starters at guard this season -- Alex Lewis and Marshal Yanda -- are on injured reserve.

4: Fumbles, in 56 career carries, by Ravens running back Alex Collins. He lost a fumble against the Steelers, his second fumble in three games with the Ravens. "We just cannot be turning the ball over," head coach John Harbaugh said. "That's not the way we're going to win games around here."

9: Interceptions by the Ravens' defense this season, which leads the league. After recording eight interceptions in the first two games, the Ravens have just one in the past two games, by Eric Weddle against the Steelers. Manuel has thrown 19 interceptions in 29 career games (17 starts).

10: Consecutive games in which Flacco has thrown an interception. One streak will end this week; the Raiders have not intercepted a pass this season. 

28: Defensive snaps played last week against the Steelers by rookie cornerback Marlon Humphrey, his season high. Humphrey, who had a career-high four tackles in that game, could get his first career start at Oakland, as Jimmy Smith has been slowed this week by an Achilles injury.

39: Starts by offensive tackle Howard for the Raiders, for whom he played from 2014-2016. Howard was released by the Raiders and signed by the Ravens in early August. Howard had been a member of the Ravens' practice squad for part of the 2011 season.

50: Length, in yards, of Collins' longest run against the Steelers last week. That is the longest run of Collins' career and the longest run by a Ravens back since a 52-yarder by Justin Forsett in 2014. Collins' average of 8.2 yards per carry leads the league. 

62: Distance, in yards, of Justin Tucker's missed field-goal attempt against the Steelers. That is 1 yard longer than the franchise record-long field goal, by Tucker against the Detroit Lions in 2013. Tucker now has a career percentage of 89.1, which ranks second in NFL history to Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey (89.8).
