Derek Carr throws for four touchdowns, the last to Michael Crabtree with 2:12 remaining, to lead Oakland (3-1) to a victory over previously unbeaten Baltimore (3-1). After the Ravens rally from a nine-point deficit for their first lead with 3:36 remaining, Carr engineers a 66-yard drive culminated by Crabtree's 23-yard catch in the back of the end zone. Sebastian Janikowski's fourth PAT provides the winning margin. Carr finishes 25 of 35 passing for 199 yards with three scores to Crabtree and one to Seth Roberts. In their 2015 meeting, Carr passed for three TDs and 351 yards against the Ravens in a 37-33 Raiders win.

The Raiders earn their first road victory over the Ravens after five losses despite getting only 13 first downs and 261 total yards. Oakland has 12 penalties for 93 yards and is 3 of 12 in third-down efficiency.
The Raiders' Michael Crabtree has a career-high three touchdown catches against the Ravens, and finishes with seven catches for 88 yards. His three TD performance is tied for second in franchise history for most receiving touchdowns in a game. Jerry Porter is the last Raider to have three TD catches in a game when he accomplished the feat on Dec. 19, 2004. Art Powell set the single-game franchise record of four TD catches on Dec. 22, 1963.
With a 3-1 record, the Raiders are off to their best start since 2002, when the team opened with four wins.
The Ravens offensive line struggles with starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley inactive because of a foot injury. Baltimore is penalized five times for offensive holding and allows sacks to Oakland's Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack during the fourth quarter. Mack gets his first sack of the season after being sack-less in the season's first three games.
Oakland's second-ranked rush offense (168.3 yards per game) has only 62 rushing yards on 19 carries against the Ravens' eighth-ranked run defense (86.0).
Joe Flacco is 32 for 52 passing for 298 yards, and the Ravens amass 412 total yards, but they have only six points on two Justin Tucker field goals in the game's first 42 minutes.

"At the end of the day just a gritty, gritty win. A great road win against a really good football team.”

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio

3-0: Oakland's road record this season.
3: TD catches by Oakland's Michael Crabtree, who finishes with seven receptions for 88 yards against the Ravens.
7: Derek Carr TD passes the past two games against the Ravens.
29: Combined points in the fourth quarter, with the Ravens outscoring the Raiders 15-14.

The Raiders improve to 2-17 their past 19 games in the Eastern time zone. Oakland ended a 16-game losing streak in ETZ games with a 27-20 win at Cleveland on Sept. 27, 2015.
With the victory, the Raiders are 3-6 in regular-season games against the Ravens. Oakland had lost its previous five regular-season road games against the Ravens.
