Carr completed 24 of 38 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos. The 29-year-old finished the season on a very impressive run, topping 300 yards in four of his last five starts (and not getting a chance to reach the mark in the fifth due to a second-quarter groin injury). Carr compiled his third consecutive 4,000-yard campaign as a result while setting a new career high with 4,103, and while the Raiders could get out of the final two seasons on his current contract fairly easily, his big final month makes it almost certain he'll be back under center for Las Vegas in 2021.
Carr completed 21 of 34 pass attempts for 336 yards, throwing one touchdown and no interceptions while adding a rushing score and minus-two yards on a pair of carries during Saturday's 26-25 loss to Miami. The three-time Pro Bowler fought through a groin injury sustained during last Thursday's overtime loss to the Chargers to remain without a missed start on the season. Carr helped lead the Raiders to a would-be game-winning field goal in the final 20 seconds of regulation Saturday by way of a seven-play, 71-yard drive. However, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins were able to respond with a field goal-yielding possession of their own to secure the Week 16 win. Carr carries a 25:7 TD:INT into the Raiders' regular-season finale, with playoff ramifications excluded from a matchup against the Broncos given Las Vegas' latest loss.
Carr is expected to start at quarterback in Saturday's game against the Dolphins, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports. Head coach Jon Gruden didn't confirm whether Carr or Marcus Mariota would start under center prior to the game. Carr led the team out of the tunnel following warmups, indicating that he'll start for the 15th time this year.
Carr (groin) is active for Saturday's game versus the Dolphins. Carr seemed poised to miss time when he pulled up on a run during Week 15 action against the Chargers and was unable to return. Fortunately for Carr, that contest occurred on a Thursday, giving him more than a week to get back to full health. He proceeded to practice in full Wednesday and Thursday, but coach Jon Gruden wouldn't confirm who among Carr or Marcus Mariota would start Week 16. Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reported that Carr threw passes first during warmups, but it remains unclear if he'll indeed be under center for the Raiders' first offensive snap.
Carr (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation for Saturday night's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Wednesday and Thursday. While that suggests Carr is good to go this weekend, Vic Tafur of The Athletic notes that a decision on who will start at QB for the Raiders has yet to be revealed by coach Jon Gruden, who is "optimistic" that Carr will be ready Saturday but isn't "going to let the cat out of the bag," adding that "both (Carr and Marcus Mariota) have prepared to play."
