Week 4: Ravens vs. Raiders
The Ravens came into this game riding a 3-0 start to the 2016 season. After a disappointing 2015 season, it looked like the birds were on a comeback to the playoffs. They came up against a young and talented Raiders team, led by 3rd year quarterback Derrick Carr.
The offense only put up 6 points in the first half and still out-gained the Raiders by almost 200 yards in the game. Down 21-19 in the 4th quarter, Lawrence Guy forced a fumble, which led to a Terrance West touchdown.
Dean Peas and the defense then went into prevent mode and let the Raiders drive down the field. Derrick Carr only needed 6 plays and less than 90 seconds to find Michael Crabtree in the end-zone for the game winning score. It was like the Ravens wanted the Raiders to drive down the field and score. The secondary did not put any pressure on the receivers and they paid for it.
The Ravens had a chance to get into field goal range, but an incomplete pass to Kamar Aiken on 4th down ended the game.
