Baltimore Ravens VS. Oakland Raiders Live Updates: Game thread

PREGAME:

10:30 a.m. - Welcome to CSN Mid-Atlantic's gamethread for the Week 4 game between the Ravens and Raiders.

You can follow me on Twitter, @TroyMachir. Be sure to follow our CSN Ravens Insiders Clifton Brown and Bo Smolka live from M&T Bank Stadium. You can also follow our CSN Ravens account for all the latest Ravens videos, news and articles. 

10:50 a.m. - The Ravens are 3-0, which is great. But the Ravens have scored just four touchdowns. With the status first-round pick Ronnie Stanley up in the air, the offensive line will need to stand on its head against the Raiders front-seven, led by freak rusher Kahlil Mack.

11:10 a.m. - Baltimore's solid start has been carried by the defense. But the Raiders have a bevy of offensive weapons that can give the Ravens fits. 

11:30 a.m. - The nasty weather in the mid-atlantic, thanks to Hurricane Matthew, could play a major factor in how the two teams manage the game. Running the ball is going to be key, which could be problematic for the Ravens. But with Kenneth Dixon likely to make his NFL debut, the backfield could be due for a breakout game.

11:45 a.m. - The 1:00 p.m. start also favors the Ravens. Teams from the west coast have often struggled when playing in early east coast games. The Ravens will need to get out to a fast start, something they've struggled with already (*Coughs* Browns game. *Cough.)

12:09 p.m. - If you're just joining us, there is football on TV. The Jaguars and Colts are playing across the pond at Wembley Stadium. With ten minutes left, the Jags lead 23-13. It's yet another predictable, London game slog. It's not pretty. But it is football on your TV at noon, so that works. 

12:15 a.m. - We're live on CSN+ for Ravens Kickoff. Join Chris Miller and former Ravens linebacker Brad Jackson at the home of Ravens pregame coverage. 

12:30 p.m. - Fantasy Football Update! You probably shouldn't be starting any Ravens running backs, but if you are, it will be good to know that rookie Kenneth Dixon is getting the start over Justin Forsett. Adjust accordingly. 

12:55 p.m. - We're five minutes away from kickoff. Will the Ravens improve to 4-0? Will jet lag get to the Raiders? Leave a prediction in the comment section below.

12:57 p.m. - My prediction: Ravens 21, Raiders 20.

12:59 p.m. - It's game time. The Ravens win the toss and defer. The Raiders offense will take the field first. 

FIRST QUARTER

1:05 p.m. - Another 3-and-out for the Ravens on the first series of the game. They've started every game this season with a 3-and-out.

1:10 p.m. - Kenneth Dixon gets the start at RB. The Ravens try to establish the run, but don't get much. A 3-and-out for Flacco and company.

1:15 p.m. - The Ravens defense has looked good, but alas ...

1:22 p.m. - The opening quarter looks a lot like Week 3 against the Jaguars. A lot of 3-and-outs. Joe Flacco isn't doing too much and the run game has been nonexistatnt. Luckily, the same applies to the Raiders. 

1:27 p.m. - Reminder: The Raiders have a player named Clive Walford. He's not British, nor is he a butler. We're confused.

1:29 p.m. - Another 3rd down stop for the Ravens. They are very good at that. 

1:34 p.m. - Another Ravens punt. Jalen Richard returns it 47 yards for the Raiders. Another slow start for the Ravens and now their opponents are again in a good spot. Credit punter Sam Kich for making the TD-saving tackle.

1:37 p.m. - Touchdown Raiders on the very next play. Derek Carr finds Seth Roberts for the diving catch TD. 7-0 Raiders with 1:25 left in the first.

1:40 p.m. - Devin Hester breaks off a huge return. A 60-yarder and now the Ravens have good starting field position.

SECOND QUARTER

1:45 p.m. - Flacco is now hitting a bunch of short routes, which he did last week against the Jaguards, rattling off 20 consecutive completions. He's already connected with six different receivers. 

1:49 p.m. - Ravens find their best player for the score ... Justin Tucker kicks a short field goal. Raiders up 7-3. 

1:56 p.m. - After the Raiders go3-and-out for the third time this half, Terrance West breaks off a big 21-yard run, the lognest play of the game. But West has 26 yards on six carries, so, there is still room for improvement.

2:00 p.m. - Both the Ravens and Raiders have picked up 4 penalties for 40 yards. Eight penalties in one half. Woof.

2:06 p.m - The Raiders are going no-huddle and it's paying off. Carr is 5-for-5 and the Raiders are moving the ball down the field with ease. After a big run from DeAndre Washington to get the ball inside the red zone, Carr drops a dime to Michael Crabtree on a fade to the corner of the end zone. Raiders lead 14-3.

2:10 p.m. - Ravens start on their own 20-yard-line. Four minutes left. Flacco continues to connect on short passes. But the Ravens have yet to connect on anything past 15 yards. 

2:15 p.m. - Another injury update.

2:19 p.m. - Ravens have to punt. Flacco has thrown the ball 21 times. The Ravens have run the ball just seven times. Woof.

2:25 p.m. - Woof.

2:30 p.m. - The half is finally here and the Ravens trail 14-6.

THIRD QUARTER

2: 46 p.m. - The second half begins with Devin Hester fumbling the opening kickoff. He had a fumble last week too. Luckily, Hester recovers the fumble and the Ravens will begin the third quarter.

2:55 p.m. - It's yet another slog for the Ravens. No run game, lots of short passes, Flacco looking deep, but consistantly forced to throw it away.

3:01 p.m. - Terrance West breaks off a huge run, but fumbles the ball. Thankfully, Jeremy Zuttah is there to recover it. Ravens have been careless with the rock today. 

3:05 p.m. - Nonetheless, the Ravens continue to move the ball. But they have to eventually find paydirt. Field goals won't do it here. 

3:11 p.m. - Ravens have a great red zone chance, but Flacco floats the pass too far past Kyle Juszczyk and the play falls incomplete.

3:13 p.m. - It's 4th-and-Goal. The Ravens need seven points. They're keeping Tucker on the sideline. Flacco scores on the QB keeper. They go for two and Flacco is intercepted. Ravens trail 14-12.

3:19 p.m. - Third quarter comes to an end and the Raiders lead the Ravens 14-12.

FOURTH QUARTER

3:25 p.m. - Yet another fumble for the Ravens. Flacco hit by Bruce Irvin and the Raiders recover the ball. That was Irvin's third forced fumble of the season. 

3:33 p.m. - Raiders go up 20-12 after a nice TD catch from Crabtree, his second of the game. A costly third down penalty by the Ravens kept the drive alive. Crabtree took a huge hit from Eric Weddle, but hung on for the TD.

3:40 p.m. - The Raiders front-seven is balling out. Kahlil Mack drags down Flacco for a big sack to bring up Third-and-23. Ravens having major issues being dynamic on offense.

3:55 p.m. - FUMBLE. RAVENS GET THE BALL BACK. IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN!

4:00 p.m. - The Ravens get it into the Raiders' red zone, and Terrance West plows it in, the team's first rushing TD by a running back this season.

4:03 p.m. - The Ravens go for the two-point conversion and get it, but Mike Wallace gets flagged for unsportsmanlike penalty. Nonetheless, the Ravens lead 27-21. 

4:05 p.m - The Ravens scored just four touchdowns in the first three weeks. They have two TDs in the last 2:51 of the game.

4:07 p.m. - Raiders go no-huddle and the Ravens back off. Carr moves the ball down the field with ease.

4:10 p.m. - Carr finds Clive Walford on the goal line, but gets hit hard and call hold on. Walford is down after a painful hit in double coverage. Ravens' Lardarius Webb is banged up, as is Walford. Both players need help getting off the field. 

4:11 p.m. - OH NO. Michael Crabtree hauls in a beauty of a pass from Derek Carr, taps his toes and scores his third TD of the game. Wow that was nice. Game now tied 27-27. 

4:15 p.m. - Terrence West busts open a 16-yard run. He now has a career-high 118 yards on 20 carries. 

4:20 p.m. - Justin Tucker has connected on 60+ yards in practice and thinks he can hit an 83-yarder. Hit the music.

4:25 p.m. - No chance for Tucker. Ravens have a fourth-and-10 on the 50-yard line. Flacco finds Kamar Aiken over the middle, but he is drilled by two defenders and the ball pops loose. The Raiders will hold on for the 28-27 win. The Ravens move to 3-1 on the season.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.

“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”
