The undefeated Baltimore Ravens face their biggest test so far Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders and their high-powered offense.Baltimore, however, already got a significant boost to its lineup heading into the game.Linebacker Elvis Dumervil returned to practice and is expected to make his season debut Sunday. The Ravens will need the extra help to contain Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who torched their secondary for a career-high 351 yards and three touchdowns in their matchup last season. Oakland (2-1) has already won twice on the road.He had a breakout game against us, probably in some ways, last year, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said about Carr. They still have built the offense for him in the same way they built it last year. Theyre going to get the ball off quick. Theyre going to protect him. Theyre going to keep him clean. He hasnt been sacked very much and hasnt had a lot of turnovers -- very few fumbles that hes caused. Thats a formula for success on offense. Theyve done a good job of that, and were going to have to figure out how to counter that.The Ravens are 3-0 for the third time in franchise history (2006 and 2009). Those wins have come by a combined 13 points and against teams that are now a cumulative 1-8. Baltimore has managed just four touchdowns over that stretch.Im not really too worried about it, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. I feel like we know what is going on. We feel good about a lot of the things we are doing. We feel like we are ready to burst onto the scene. We have a lot of moving parts, a lot of guys catching passes. I think if we get our run game going a little bit and clean up the little things like penalties, some drops and a couple missed throws -- stuff like that -- I think we will be going.While the offense has struggled, the Ravens defense has come up big each game. Baltimore is allowing just 254.3 yards per game, second only to Seattle (250.3). The is a big improvement from last season when the Ravens failed to make key stops in the fourth quarter.Its a good group, well coached (with) a lot of talent on the defense, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said in a conference call with reporters. They mix their coverages. Theyre physical up front. Its a very good football team.Oakland, meanwhile, has the second-best offense in the NFL, averaging 436 yards and 26.7 points per game. Carr has thrown for 867 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. In last seasons matchup, Carr threw the game-winning score to Seth Roberts with 26 second left.The game also marks a homecoming for former Ravens offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele, who signed with Oakland in the offseason for a five-year, $58.5 million deal. Osemele is looking forward to matching up with his former teammates.Its going to be great, Osemele said. I got to practice against these guys for so long and played against these guys for so long that its going to be exciting playing them on Sunday. Theres a few guys, obviously, that its going to be fun to finish through and play against them in a game. You couldnt really finish through and pancake your own teammates (in practice). Just to go out there and talk a little trash and get to compete against those guys is going to be fun. Air Max 270 Saldi . PETERSBURG, Fla. Nike Vapormax 2019 Uomo .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.outletairmaxitalia.it/scapre-air-max-97-outlet.html . By having more great seasons.

MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level.

SPARTA, Ky. -- Storms washed out qualifying at Kentucky Speedway on Friday, putting Kevin Harvick on the pole for Saturday nights Sprint Cup Series race based on owner points.Severe weather moved over the track near midday and shortened practice to around 30 minutes. A brief sprinkle followed but cars were able to return to the track for practice.In any event, Harvicks No. 4 Chevy will lead the field to green alongside Brad Keselowski in the No. 2 Ford.It is the first Kentucky pole for Harvick, who has two top-five starts in five trips here. But he and other drivers likely will have to reboot their strategy after rain washed the 1.5 mile tri-oval clean of rubber they put down in hopes of widening grooves on the resurfaced and reconfigured track.Hopefully, being able to get some more practice will be beneficial, Harvick said. We still dont really have a good idea of exactly where we need to be as far as balance and what is going to happen the longer you run the car.Given the 2014 champions consistency this season, Harvick seems likely to figure it out.Harvick hasnt won since the fourth race at Phoenix, but has posted 13 top-10 finishes in 17 starts. He has led the points after the past eight races but has generated less buzz compared to counterparts such as Keselowski or defending champion Kyle Busch, who are tied with a series-best three wins.Harvick thinks his steady results will translate into victories.We are cleaning a lot of things up as we go from week to week, he said, and hopefully we are ready as we get into the Chase and have everything hitting on all cylinders. I feel good about the performance and good about the progress that we have made with adjusting and adapting and the things that we have been able to achieve have been OK. Hopefully we can keep making them better.The rest of the top 10: Kurt Busch (Chevy); Joey Logano (Ford); Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Carl Edwards and KKyle Busch in Toyotas; Martin Truex Jr.dddddddddddd (Toyota); rookie Chase Elliott (Chevy); Jimmie Johnson (Chevy) and Denny Hamlin (Toyota).SECOND FIDDLEJohnson and Kurt Busch will race in backup Chevys after wrecking their primary cars. Johnsons No. 48 got loose in turn 4 in the morning session and smacked the outside wall, sustaining heavy damage after posting the second-fastest speed of 188.121 mph. Busch hit the wall in the final evening practice and went to his backup No. 41 Chevy. Both drivers will move to the back of the field per NASCAR rules.MAKERS MARKToyota and Chevy each has four spots in the top 10 with seven drivers coming from three teams. Harvick is joined by Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch, while Johnson has company in Hendrick Motorsports stablemate Elliott. Hamlin, Edwards and Kyle Busch will represent Joe Gibbs Racing.ON THE VERGEThough Keselowski is tied with Kyle Busch for the most Kentucky wins with two each, dont be shocked if Penske Racing teammate Logano breaks through. He was second last July and has three consecutive top-10s with 60 laps led combined the past two years.RUBBER MATCHCup cars will feature a different Goodyear tire package from last months test after the manufacturer noticed blistering afterward. The new package is harder with the right-side tire using the same construction as the one used at Michigan. Harvick crew chief Rodney Childers voiced his displeasure with the change Thursday with a tweet that said, We will never ever go test for 2 days on an off week again, on the wrong tires.Keselowski seemed to like the change, saying Friday that the tire change seems to have not only been warranted, but very successful. We havent seen any issues as of now, but of course that can always change throughout the weekend. ' ' '
