Ravens vs. Raiders Week 4 Storylines:
- Dumervil's return: Linebacker Elvis Dumervil has been out for the first three weeks of the season recovering from an off-season foot surgery. He said he wanted to play last week against the Jaguars, but seemed almost positive that he will be in the lineup this Sunday.
- Perfect Justin Tucker: Tucker has not missed a field goal this season, and has been a big part of the Ravens' close victories. After kicking the winning field goal last week against the Jaguars, he'll definitely be a player to watch this week.
- No passing, no problem: Ravens linebackers have been all about pass coverage so far this season. They've already combined for three interceptions, compared to one pick last season.
- Runningbacks think consistency is key: The Ravens rushing game hasn't been as strong as it should be, and Terrance West thinks the problem might be competition between the runningbacks. According to Harbaugh, the team will probably continue to split the workload between West, Forsett, and Dixon when he returns.

Ravens vs. Raiders Week 4 Predictions:
- Clifton Brown: Being at home, and getting a consistent pass rush on Carr, should allow the Ravens to remain unbeaten. Ravens 30, Raiders 20.
- Bo Smolka: Derek Carr lit up the Ravens last year in a 37-33 Raiders win, but as John Harbaugh said last week, this Ravens defense is better. And the Ravens offense will find some life against the league's lowest-rated defense. The Raiders are 1-18 in their last 19 games on the East Coast. Although it won't be easy -- is anything ever with this team? -- the Ravens squeak out another win. Ravens 27, Raiders 23.
