OWINGS MILLS - Bursting through a gaping hole in the middle of the Raiders' defensive line, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was free into Oakland's secondary yet again.
Two missed tackles later and Martin was in the end zone for a 70-yard touchdown run, his third long scoring run of the second half.
It was an all-around shoddy performance for the Raiders' defense amid last week's 42-32 loss to Tampa Bay, the continuation of what has been a frustrating season for Oakland's defensive unit.
Martin racked up 251 yards and four touchdowns on the ground and Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman totaled 247 yards and two scores through the air. In all, the Raiders surrendered more than 500 yards of total offense, the second time they've done so this season.
Oakland is tied for 28th out of the NFL's 32 teams in scoring defense, tied for 30th in sacks and ranked 21st in total defense.
The Raiders (3-5) are ranked 22nd against the run and 21st versus the pass.
They're on the road to face the Ravens (6-2) today in Baltimore.
"They're pretty tough up front and their secondary gets after it," Ravens tight end Ed Dickson said of Oakland. "But, at the end of the day, if we do the things that we do well there will be some opportunities to get some big plays."
Oakland has allowed three 100-yard rushers and two 300-yard passers.
Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh) and Peyton Manning (Denver) threw for a combined 722 yards and seven touchdowns without an interception against the Raiders.
On the ground, Oakland yielded the 251 yards and four scores to Martin last week and gave up 172 yards and two touchdowns to Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush earlier this season as well as 112 yards and a score to Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee.
Baltimore running back Ray Rice had a season-high 25 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 25-15 win at Cleveland last week.
Rice (622 yards, six touchdowns) and physical rookie running back Bernard Pierce (148 yards, one score) are averaging a combined 4.8 yards per carry.
And while Baltimore's passing game has struggled on the road, it's flourished at home.
Quarterback Joe Flacco has thrown for 1,271 yards with seven touchdowns and just two interceptions in four home games.
The Ravens have scored an average of 32 points per game at home compared to just 17 points per game on the road.
"I think the quarterback is really good," Raiders coach Dennis Allen told reporters in Oakland this week. "I think they've got Anquan Boldin, an experienced receiver. I think they've got some good tight ends that they can throw the ball to. Torrey Smith is an outstanding weapon down the field.
"Ray Rice is another talent that they have that they can use in the passing game, so I think when you've got a really good quarterback like they do, and you've got some weapons, it makes for a formidable challenge."
Baltimore's defense will be tested as well.
The Raiders will be without their top two running backs - Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson - but quarterback Carson Palmer is throwing for an average of 294 yards per game and has tossed 13 touchdowns.
Palmer's 29 passing plays of 20 yards or more are tied for sixth-most in the NFL.
Nine different Raiders have caught at least one pass of 20 yards or more and eight different players have at least 14 catches.
The Ravens are ranked 22nd in the NFL against the pass.
"The guy [Palmer], he's putting up numbers," Baltimore safety Bernard Pollard said. "He has a young cast of guys [around him], but they're all burners and are all ready to make plays."
Oakland is 1-3 on the road. The Ravens are 4-0 at home.
Baltimore has won 19 of its last 20 games at home, including 14 in a row, the longest active streak in the NFL.
The Ravens lead the AFC North by just one game ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3).
"We're just trying to improve every week," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "We're just trying to be the best team we can be this week because that gives you the best chance to win this game and it also puts you in the best position going forward in order to become the best team you can be long-term."
