How's the pass defense going to fare against the Raiders' passing game?
The pass defense will definitely be challenged. Armed with a number of speedy pass catchers, Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer is having one of the better statistical seasons of his career. Palmer has thrown for 297 yards or more in five of Oakland's eight games and he's among the league leaders in passing plays of 20 yards or more. Nine different Raiders have caught at least one pass of 20 yards or more and eight players have 14 catches or more. The Ravens are ranked 22nd in the NFL against the pass.
