Carr completed 25 of 34 passes for 322 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Raiders' 24-21 win over the Steelers on Sunday. He also lost a yard on his one carry and lost a fumble. Carr did an excellent job spreading the ball around, connecting with seven different pass catchers. He also led a game-winning eight-play, 75-yard march that he capped off with a six-yard touchdown pass to Derek Carrier with 30 seconds remaining, erasing a 21-17 deficit. Carr also continued to cultivate his already prolific connection with Jared Cook, hitting the veteran tight end on seven occasions for 116 yards. The fifth-year pro now has 607 passing yards and a 5:0 TD:INT over the last two games, in which he's completed 75 percent of his throws. He'll look to stay hot against the Bengals in a Week 15 matchup.
Carr completed 29 of 38 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Chiefs. He also ran for eight yards on his lone carry. Carr assembled a valiant second-half comeback attempt as the Raiders surpassed the 30-point mark for just the second time all season, but Oakland ultimately fell one touchdown short as the Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce had a field day. Carr has now collected at least three scores in three of 12 contests while avoiding a single interception in seven straight games after enduring turnover issues throughout the early portion of his 2018 campaign. Awaiting in Week 14 is a Steelers defense that has been relatively stout in terms of passing yards allowed per attempt, but just allowed Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to throw for 299 and two touchdowns. Luckily for Carr, No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson looks to be returning to full health after hauling in 10 of 11 targets Sunday, while rookie Marcell Ateman provides another big-bodied presence in the aerial attack alongside tight end Jared Cook.
Carr completed 16 of 34 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-17 loss to Baltimore. He lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown and there was some brief concern that he had suffered a concussion during the contest, Paul Guitierrez of ESPN reports. Carr delivered during the Raiders' opening drive, connecting with tight end Lee Smith for a 30-yard gain on fourth and short to set up a opening Doug Martin touchdown run. It was mostly downhill from there, as the Ravens battered Carr and limited his ability to get the ball downfield. Carr has now been held under 200 yards passing in three of his last four games and has just three touchdowns during that span. He'll need to significantly improve in order to keep up with Kansas City's offense in Week 13. It's also worth noting the Chiefs defense now ranks in the top half of the league in opponent passer rating allowed, making Carr's challenge all the more daunting.
Carr completed 24 of 37 passing attempts for 243 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers. The Raiders were fortunate to manage even six points as Carr had a potential pick-six bounce off a defender's hands near the Chargers end zone before Oakland's fourth-quarter field-goal. Once again, the Raiders were out of sync on offense, and the 27-year-old managed just 78 yards passing in the first half. He has now failed to throw for a touchdown in three of his last four games, and things don't get any easier the next two weeks with road matchups against the stingy Arizona and Baltimore defenses on tap.
Carr completed 21 of 28 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns while rushing twice for zero yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Colts. Who needs Amari Cooper anyway? Carr bounced back beautifully from his worst performance of the season despite watching the starting wide receiver get traded for a first-round pick in between. The quarterback accounted for all four touchdowns as his team took a 28-21 lead into the fourth quarter, but Indianapolis pulled away with a 21-0 run in the final frame. Carr will have a short turnaround with a Thursday night tilt in San Francisco on the docket for Week 9.
