Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs BAL (13 / 26 / 159 / 1 / 0 pass, 2 / 15 / 0 rush)

Derek Carr was held out after suffering a back injury in Week 4 giving Manuel his first start for Oakland. Manuel acquitted himself well. He didn't turn the ball over, used his athleticism to buy time and made some nice plays to extend drives. The Raiders quickly fell into a 21-3 hole but Manuel slowly got Oakland back into the game, making it a one possession game in the third quarter after he led a pair of long touchdown drives. Manuel made some plays with his legs, rushing for a couple key first downs and also escaping the pocket at times to allow his receivers extra time to get open. He scrambled to buy time on a play-action pass that was supposed to go deep to Amari Cooper. When Cooper drew triple coverage, Manuel scrambled to his right and hit Michael Crabtree in the end zone for a 42-yard touchdown. Manuel also completed a key third down pass for 22 yards down the left sideline to Seth Roberts after scrambling to buy time. Manuel converted a 3rd-and-9 in the red zone with a weaving scramble in which he eluded multiple Ravens defenders and dove for the first down. He almost scored but came up just a couple yards short.

2017 Week 4 vs DEN (11 / 17 / 106 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Manuel came in mid-series when Carr took a big hit midway through the third quarter. The Raiders were quickly forced to punt and went 3-and-out on Manuel's next series. It took Manuel a little while to get rolling but when he did, he played great. Trailing by nine midway through the fourth quarter, he threw for 73 yards on five plays before stalling out in the red zone, which forced Oakland to settle for a field goal. He threw with authority, accuracy, and plenty of zip on the ball. Manuel almost capped the drive off with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jared Cook but Cook couldn't make the sliding catch in the end zone on the perfectly thrown pass. Manuel came close to pulling off a shocking comeback. He had the Raiders driving for a go-ahead touchdown deep in Broncos territory late but threw an interception when he threw it up to give Amari Cooper a jump-ball opportunity.
