A late Michael Crabtree touchdown -- one of his three on the day -- ultimately helped the Raiders hand Baltimore its first loss of the season on Sunday.
Here are 5 Sizzling Stats that determined the outcome, presented by Ruth’s Chris.
1) 3.06 -- Yards per carry for the Raiders offense on Sunday. That should be considered a bright spot, being that Oakland came into the game averaging 5.9 yards per carry -- the best mark in the NFL. But…
2) 0 -- The number of sacks for Baltimore’s defense. Without that consistent pressure, Carr settled in to complete 71.4 percent of his passes and four touchdowns, despite only throwing for 199 yards.
3) 2 -- Number of times in his career that Terrance West has now rushed for at least 100 yards. In the absence of Justin Forsett vs. Oakland, West posted 113 yards on 21 carries and added a touchdown. Granted, it was against one of the league’s worst defenses against the run. But still.
4) 11/11 -- Justin Tucker on field goals so far this season. For Tucker, it is the most career makes in a row without a miss to begin a season.
5) 1 -- The deciding margin Sunday and the first time this season that Baltimore has lost a game decided by eight points or fewer. Why does that matter? Because the Ravens had played well this year after last season’s repeated close losses. In 2015, 14 of Baltimore's 16 games were decided by that margin. In those 14 games, Baltimore was 5-9.
