The Raiders' special teams allow touchdowns on a fake field goal (a 7-yard run by holder Sam Koch) and Jacoby Jones' 105-yard kickoff return.

The Raiders have allowed 97 points the past two games — the second worst two-game stretch in club history; Oakland surrendered 99 points in losses to Houston (55-0) and San Diego (44-0) to open the 1961 season.


QB Joe Flacco — Throws for 3 touchdowns and 341 yards with an interception on 21 of 33 passing. He also scores on a 1-yard run. Flacco engineers scoring drives (4 TDs & 2 FGs) on six of the Ravens' first seven possessions.

With 55 points against Oakland, the Ravens set a franchise single-game record for points — surpassing the previous record of 48 points against Detroit in December 2009.

A week after allowing 278 rushing yards to Tampa Bay, Oakland surrenders only 78 yards on 28 carries (2.8 yards per rush) against Baltimore.
In three of four road losses this season, Oakland has been outscored 127-39.

"We had too many mental errors on defense, gave up too many big plays, we turned the ball over too many times and we didn't execute on special teams. When you do those things, it generally results in something like that."

Raiders coach Dennis Allen

“Things came apart in the third quarter (when Oakland was outscored 21-7). They kept scoring and we couldn't keep up. With all the penalties and mental errors we had, there's no way we're going to beat a playoff team on their field."

Raiders QB Carson Palmer

10: Oakland penalties for 105 yards, including two personal fouls by linebacker Aaron Curry, playing in his first game this season after recovering from sore knees.
32-5: Ravens' record in regular-season home games since 2008, the best record over that juncture in the NFL.
97: Points allowed by the Raiders the past two games. It's the second most points over two games by a Raiders team since the 1961 season when Oakland allowed 99 points to Houston and San Diego.
841: Combined total yards by the Raiders (422) and Ravens (419).

The Raiders are 6-28 in regular-season games in the Eastern Time Zone since December 2002.

The Raiders are 1-7 overall against the Ravens, including 0-5 in road games.
With 35 rushing yards on 13 carries, Baltimore's Ray Rice has 5,034 career rushing yards — joining Jamal Lewis as the only players in Ravens history to reach the 5,000 plateau.
