Lamar Jack­son at­tempted just 19 passes in his first ca­reer start, com­plet­ing 13 and throw­ing an in­ter­cep­tion. Jack­son’s un­even ac­cu­racy and re­luc­tance to throw down­field re­main the great­est ar­eas of con­cern. But he’s vowed to tar­get re­ceivers Michael Crab­tree, John Brown and Wil­lie Snead IV more. Brown and Crab­tree have caught just 14 passes be­tween them over the past three games. The Ravens have fallen to 27th in the league in yards per at­tempt.

Derek Carr has strug­gled to live up to his billing as a fran­chise quar­ter­back. His sta­tis­tics — 70.3 per­cent com­ple­tion rate and 7.5 yards per at­tempt — are ac­tu­ally up from 2017. But the Raiders are 8-17 in games he’s started the past two years. The Raiders rank 17th in the league in pass­ing yards per game and 13th in yards per at­tempt. They’re 25th in the league in third-down con­ver­sion per­cent­age and 30th in red­zone scor­ing per­cent­age.
