Final: Ravens 55, Raiders 20

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 11th, 2012 at 1:05 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders went beyond mere defeat Sunday with a loss of historical proportions.

Scoring nearly every way possible, the Baltimore Ravens beat the Raiders 55-20 before 71,339 fans at M&T Bank Stadium, most of whom were enjoying it so much they were still around to see their team score the most points in its history.

On the other end, when Jacoby Jones raced 105 yards with a kickoff return for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, it tied the record for the most points ever given up by a Raiders team.

It’s the first real crisis of the Dennis Allen regime, with the Raiders having given up 97 points in back-to-back games.

You have go back to the pre-Al Davis era of 1961, when the Raiders gave up 99 points in their first two games of the season, to find eight quarters of football where they gave up more points.

The Ravens, 7-2, won their 15th straight home game with quarterback Joe Flacco completing 21 of 33 passes for 341 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Flacco also scored on a 1-yard run before giving way to backup Tyrod Taylor with 7:31 remaining.

Flacco threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dennis Pitta and had scoring strikes of 47 and 20 yards to Torrey Smith.

The Raiders, 3-6 and with resurgent New Orleans coming into town with quarterback Drew Brees, were little more than idle bystanders as the Ravens piled it on.

The ultimate indignity came before the Jones kickoff return, when holder Sam Koch ran 7 yards for a touchdown on a fake field goal attempt to make it 48-17.

The last real spark for the Raiders came with 1:37 left in the first half when quarterback Carson Palmer hit Darrius Heyward-Bey with a 55-yard touchdown pass to close within 20-10.

Heyward-Bey bounced off a tackle attempt by future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed and then ran the remaining 35 yards for the score as Oakland scored within the final two minutes of the first half for the ninth straight game.

The Raiders defense, however, gave it right back.

Flacco completed five of six passes for 73 yards and set up a 7-yard touchdown run by Ray Rice with 24 seconds left and a 27-10 Ravens lead.

Baltimore outscored the Raiders 21-7 in the third quarter _ a period where Oakland has been outscored 109-31 this season.

Palmer had one other touchdown pass, a 30-yard strike to Denarius Moore on the Raiders first series of the second half. He finished 29 of 45 for 368 yards, but also had an interception and a lost fumble.

Rather than play Palmer to the bitter end, as Allen did earlier this season in a one-sided loss to Denver, Matt Leinart came in to play with 5:59 to play.

It was Oakland’s sixth straight defeat in an Eastern time zone and 11th in the last 13 cross-country games.

    Jhill, As I’ve tried to get you to understand. I’m not talking about established players but player development he seems unwilling or less tolerant with players that Mr davis drafted and to say he isn’t is to ignore several examples. It’s not like this secondary is great so why isn’t Chekwa on this roster? Oh! I forgot he can’t play………..lol

  • DJ Johnny

    Don’t worry guys, DA said this was “unacceptable”. LMFAO.

    What are u gonna do about it bean pole?

    Keep trolling guys, You guys wanted a perenial sb contender after the salary situation AL D left with , tell me again which high profile guy Reg brought?

    =========

    Brisel who got us 2 sacks today.


    Thats not a high profile guy you idiot , High profile guy is some one like a # 1 receiver or # 1 Pass rusher or some legit Linebackers, you guys can call for REG as much as you want , but i will reserve my judgement until he gets some salary cap and another draft to work with

    =======

    The point is, is that his one ‘major” free agent signing sucks eggs.

    Yeah, we should have kept MBush. But at the end of the day, I don’t think it would have mattered with ‘ol Knappy calling the plays. He would have never used MBush. Comon’ think about it, how many times do you see a second back on the field …not much at all.

    And last yr… If the Raiders were a playoff team they would have stopped the chokers during that last game… You need to stop saying the Raiders were close last yr… They wernt… The defense was as horrible as it was today….and the whole division sucked last yr…..
    —————-

    Last yaers team was much better on O, they were ok post Mcfadden injury but still much better than the current O at any point this season, if it wernt for 4 games last yaer BUFF,DEN,DET,SD, we would have been playoff team easy and may have had a bye. pretty simple stuff but you cats like to spin schit into your favor, and make schit sound so complicated.

    that’s still a lot better than how many big FA’s have sucked under AL D

  • lefty12

    Many on here are blaming McKenzie and Allen.Whose fault is it they are employed here-AL DAVIS.Because he was to stubborn to hire a GM when he knew the end was coming,everything changed when he died.If he had hired someone he believed in and someone he could have mentored and thought like he did,we wouldn’t be in total chaos today.Except for the fact the roster is full of gutless,losers who don’t have one once of pride in their body.

  • Priesttj12

    This Oline could definitely use Bruce campbell and Barksdale but the “Great Reggime” didn’t think so. They have made mistake after mistake after mistake and it’s all due to their arrogant attitude towards Al Davis players…..you guys can’t see it because your head is to far up “the Reggimes” large rearend.

    The guy’s arrogance is out of whack and he doesn’t know what he’s doing yet.

    DA is a bust.

    He sucks as a coach.

    Defensive minded?

    Ha. What a frickin joke.

    He says this is “unacceptable”?

    He’s right about that, but he’s an impotent joke who is helpless to do anything about it.

    Way to have this team prepared man.

    “Get better” LMFAO.

    LOSER.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    TOo many check cashers. Too many stupid fans deluded into thinking this was a good team last year that just needed to be tweaked.

    The Raiders will get that WELL OVERDUE pressure wash this offseason. All the scholarships, draft bust and 1yr free agent rentals will be on the road.

    Plenty of cap room that can be cleared in the offseason

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Alex Smith knocked out of the game. That’s probably the best thing that could happen to the 49ers. With Kapernick at QB they are a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

    I figured out secret code for JONGRUDEN2013 posting to his man lover in here, I will translate below.

    “Priest come on man, you were banned,..I am tight with P-Con, I got you back in,..Gary not down with you man, but I got you back in,.,.show some respect dude.”

    P-Con is code for anal at the local Glory Hole.

    “I got you back” Typical butt pirate talk

    “Gary not down with you man”

    When you go to the Glory Hole don’t bone Gary he thinks your too small.

    Oh and By The Way stop backpedaling on the retarded rebuilding comment you made earlier its showed your low football IQ and its still funny to most of us here.

    He’s hardly a full time DE, we could have used him on 3rd downs for sure , but hardly some one that deserves more than 10 million , Wimbley gone , Rout gone, next yeah Mclain , Kelly AND seymour will be gone too , then we will bring in legit receivers
