Carlson converted all five of his field-goal attempts and added two extra points in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers. Carlson had one of the best games of his entire career on Sunday Night Football. He ultimately sent the Chargers home without a playoff berth, thanks in part to multiple 40-plus yard makes in overtime, as the Raiders advance to play in Cincinnati on Saturday. Carlson wraps up his stellar 2021 regular season with a career-high 40 field goals made on 43 attempts, also tallying 30 extra points on 33 tries.
Carlson made his only field-goal attempt and converted a pair of extra points in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Broncos. Carlson nailed a 41-yarder to extend the Raiders' lead to four points with less than eight minutes remaining in the contest, and the defense was able to hold the as the team improved to 8-7. Carlson has not missed a single field-goal attempt since Week 9, and he'll look forward to kicking indoors this week at Indianapolis.
Carlson made all three of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point try in Monday's 16-14 win over the Browns. Carlson converted from 24 and 40 yards prior to draining a game-winning 48-yarder as time expired. Monday's performance added to another superb campaign from Carlson, who has missed merely six of 61 total attempts thus far.
Carlson and the Raiders will no longer play the Browns on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the Week 15 game is played Monday as planned, Carlson and Las Vegas will face a quick turnaround for the team's Week 16 contest versus the Broncos, which is still expected to be played Sunday, Dec. 26 as scheduled.
Carlson made his only field-goal attempt from 26 yards in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs, but he also missed an extra-point try. A failed extra point in Arrowhead Stadium is not what the Raiders wanted to see after inking Carlson to a four-year, $18.4 million contract extension earlier in the week, but the Auburn product still improved to 28 of 31 on field-goal attempts this season. Carlson's job might not get any easier Week 15, however, as windy conditions potentially await in Cleveland on Saturday afternoon.
