Carr completed 23 of 28 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.
All three touchdowns went to Michael Crabtree, who has long been Carr's favorite target near the end zone. The fourth-year quarterback has been highly efficient on modest volume through two weeks , attempting just 60 passes as the Raiders have won their games by a combined 35 points. Carr has another solid matchup Week 3 in Washington, but he'll then have to face the Broncos (Week 4) and Ravens (Week 5).
Carr completed 22 or 32 passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Titans. He added two yards on the ground during the contest.
Carr looked sharp in his first meaningful look since going down with a broken leg in Week 16 of last season. After holding steady for much of the game in what was a defensive, field-position-focused game, Carr broke the game open for Oakland early in the fourth quarter with a 19-yard strike to Seth Roberts in the end zone, a pass that landed in between three Tennessee defenders. The Raiders had a Carr-focused offseason, both with a record-setting contract and in elevating his position coach to coordinator. Even with the much-ballyhooed addition of Marshawn Lynch, this offense will still live and die with the pass.
Carr completed 13 of 17 pass attempts for 144 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 24-20 preseason defeat to the Cowboys.
Carr looked sharp in his largest sample size this preseason, completing 77 percent of his attempts while connecting for touchdowns with Cordarrelle Patterson and Amari Cooper. The fourth-year pro will be a spectator for next week's preseason finale against the Seahawks, but this cameo certainly indicates that he is ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season against the Titans.
Carr completed seven of nine passes for 100 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception on three drives in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.
Carr found backup tight end Lee Smith down the seam for a 19-yard score on the opening drive, then watched Michael Crabtree nearly break a defender's ankles while turning a short hitch route into a 13-yard touchdown two drives later. The fourth-year QB did throw an ugly interception between the two touchdown drives, but it didn't spoil an otherwise stellar showing from the first-team offense. Amari Cooper caught three of four targets for 46 yards, with 31 of those coming on a jump ball into double coverage on a 3rd-and-10.
Carr talked to reporters about being back in the huddle with his teammates and his familiarity with Oakland offensive coordinator Todd Downing. That stability on offense, along with a better supporting cast in 2017, should enhance last season's seventh-ranked scoring and passing offense.
