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.
