Carr, who completed 19 of 28 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, finishes up his 2017 campaign with 323 completions on 515 attempts, 3,496 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 15 games. Carr connected with Amari Cooper for a 60-plus yard touchdown for the second consecutive week, but otherwise turned in another mediocre performance as the Raiders fell to 6-10. The fourth-year quarterback failed to live up to his lofty expectations throughout the season after making a case for MVP in 2016, posting his worst numbers since entering the league as a rookie in 2014. Looking ahead to 2018, the Raiders may elect to move on from offensive coordinator Todd Downing during the upcoming offseason after such a disappointing effort. On a more positive note, Carr's favorite targets in Cooper, Michael Crabtree and tight end Jared Cook are all slated to return as the group continues to build chemistry.
Carr completed 15 of 29 passes for 140 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Monday night's 19-10 loss to the Eagles. Carr found Amari Cooper for a 63-yard touchdown during the second quarter, but otherwise he endured another dismal display. Over the last three games, Carr has failed to top 5.15 yards per attempt while completing just 55 percent of his passes. With five turnovers versus four touchdowns as well, the Raiders' three straight losses have seen them eliminated from playoff contention. Unfortunately for Carr, he'll face a team still fighting for its postseason life in Week 17, when Oakland travels to play the Chargers.
Carr completed 21 of 38 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns while rushing four times for 47 yards and a fumble during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys. Not regarded as a mobile quarterback, Carr set a career high in single-game rushing yards Sunday and more than tripled the rushing total he carried into Week 15 (15 yards on 14 carries). On the other hand, his fumble through the end zone in the game's waning seconds effectively lost Oakland the game, and he was erratic with his throws, finishing with a season-low 55 percent completion rate. After starting the season with a respectable 65.2 clip through Week 10, Carr has dipped to 60.1 percent over his last five outings while dealing with injuries and suspensions to his top two receivers, Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper (ankle). However, sheer volume has nearly made up for this dip in accuracy. In his first eight games, Carr averaged 33.8 passes for 244.3 yards, 1.6 touchdowns and 0.9 interceptions. In those five games since, he's averaged 37.6 passes for 231.8 passing yards, 1.4 touchdowns and 0.6 interceptions per game. He'll now travel to Philadelphia in Week 16 to challenge the Eagles' third-ranked pass defense.
Carr completed 24 of 41 pass attempts for 211 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs. He also threw two interceptions and took three sacks. Carr failed to take advantage of Kansas City's vulnerable pass defense as the fourth-year quarterback averaged just 5.1 yards per attempt and struggled with his accuracy. The Raiders were without starting wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) for a majority of the game, leading to a season-high 13 targets for Michael Crabtree as he hauled in seven passes. Playing from behind throughout the entire contest, Oakland rushed just 11 times while Carr was asked to handle much of the load on offense. Other than a 29-yard touchdown strike to tight end Jared Cook during garbage time in the fourth quarter, Carr would probably like to forget about this performance heading into his Week 15 matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night.
Carr completed 22 of 36 pass attempts for 287 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 victory over the Giants. He lost one yard on his lone rush. Missing his top two receiving weapons, Carr started out slowly, completing just one pass in the first quarter and finishing the half with just 80 passing yards. He mixed in two near-interceptions along the way but rebounded to lead two scoring drives in the fourth quarter en route to victory. Despite not being at the top of his game, the 26-year-old threw for his highest yardage total since the Raiders' Week 10 bye. Carr has promising matchups on deck, facing Kansas City in Week 14 followed by Dallas in Week 15.
