Final: Ravens 55, Raiders 20

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.

    Does anyone really think DA & Co are doing a good job?

    DAs first move this season should have been to never hire Knapp. Once he hired him, he should have seen enough to fire him a long time ago. But his stubborness wouldn’t allow it.

    We all know what needed to happen since last year: Keep the O, Change the D = Playoffs & Possible SB Contender.

    Now = bottom of the barrell. A crying shame.

  • mcfadden20.

    It’s always something with this team, 4TH AND 1 moving the ball , Briesel steps on Palmer’s shoes, then Smith lets guys get past him every other play, and then Knapp gets greedy with plays that worked a few times, he keeps on calling those wide receiver screens and some of them end up as int’s

    Well then why didn’t Al bring one of them in.He knew the writing was on the wall and he didn’t have much time yet he did NOTHING.Unlike you,I don’t hate the new regime.I believe they need time to rid the team of the scum that is our roster.They have no heart.They have no pride.They have no self-respect.If they did,they wouldn’t allow what happened today and last week to happen as often as it does.

    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

    ====================
    we havve legit receivers…but don’t worry, I’m sure Shreg will blow all the money on Greg Jennings.

    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.

    Bruce Campbell and Joe Braksdale, eh?

    Al DAvis drafted youbg Wiz and Veldheer and they are still playing.

    Houston, Bryant, D Moore, Myers, Reece, etc are all young Al Davis players that are still here and being developed.

    If YOUR guys could play, they would still be here.

    So many excuses for a sorry azz performace lead by some sorry axx coaches. Players can’t help it if the OC want to exclusively use Reece as the feature back even though he is a FB. Players can’t help it when they force feed a scheme that dont fit the players at hand. Players can’t help it when they get rid or your best pass rusher and replace him him nada. But players can help it when they are put in a position to make plays. We just have been seeing much of that this year.

    Many of you guys complain because Knapp is still employed and blame DA and RM.You talk of last year and how if Hue was still here everything would be all roses.You talk about how the only thing that stopped us last year was the defense and the DC.Well if you blame DA for not firing knapp(which he should),how come you never put any blame on Jackson for not firing Bresnahan or making him change up the defense.Kind of hypocritical if you ask me.

    It’s not about keeping all of Al Davis’ ways or his players it’s about winning. Al Davis’ ways would absolutely ahve to change that goes without saying HE’S DEAD!!!

    You have to move on as an org. I’m saying do it smartly utilize some degree of wisdom. Instead of flat out arrogance based on nothing at all.
