Baltimore and Oakland meet up on Sunday as two teams with a 2-2 record. Both won their first two games and are looking to snap a two-game losing streak.

The Ravens (2-2) have been beaten up in back-to-back weeks. They went down 44-7 against Jacksonville and followed that up with a 26-9 loss to Pittsburgh. In the game last week against the Steelers, Baltimore managed just 288 yards of total offense and turned the ball over three times.

Two of those turnovers were interceptions thrown by Joe Flacco. It hasn't been a good season for the former Super Bowl champion, who has thrown just four touchdown passes compared to six interceptions. Four of his interceptions have come in the last two weeks.
Oakland (2-2) was expected to be a Super Bowl competitor this season, but it's been a discouraging start. The Raiders have dropped their last two games and saw an injury to Derek Carr last week against Denver. Over the last two games, Oakland has managed just 20 points. There's not a lot of information about Carr's injury, other than that his back was in a lot of pain following the game.

Thus far, Marshawn Lynch hasn't been dangerous in the backfield for the Raiders. His first game, against Tennessee, was the only time he's gone for more than 75 yards or averaged more than four yards per carry in a game. In the three weeks since, he's attempted 27 carries for just 75 yards.
