Carr completed 19 of 31 attempts for 192 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 23-21 win against Arizona.
In what amounts to a consolation win over the Cardinals, Carr accounted for his second multi-touchdown game over the past four weeks. Though he's still struggling to push the ball downfield (198.4 passing yards per game since Week 6), Carr has cleaned up his act of late by going five straight outings without committing an interception (eight interceptions through Oakland's first five games). Week 12 presents a daunting task, as Carr and the Raiders go up against a Ravens defense that's held opposing quarterback to 223.5 passing yards per game this season (second-best in the NFL).
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 Charger 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 16 of 22 passes for 171 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Raiders' 34-3 loss to the 49ers on Thursday. He also rushed three times for five yards before being pulled early in the fourth quarter.
Carr's final line wasn't necessarily bad from a statistical standpoint, but he simply couldn't get his team into the end zone. The fifth-year pro also took six sacks and failed to eclipse 200 yards for the second time in the last three games. Carr has impressively completed more than 70.0 percent of his passes in four consecutive contests, but the accomplishment doesn't add up to much from a team perspective considering the Raiders have lost all of those games. Carr will look to generate much better production during a divisional showdown against the Chargers in Week 10.
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.
Carr was recently informed by the Raiders that the organization views him as their quarterback now and for the foreseeable future and has no intention of trading him, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, citing sources.
Schefter's report affirms what coach Jon Gruden relayed to the media earlier in the week, but Carr should be further encouraged by Oakland officials apparently vouching similar support behind closed doors. The Raiders have already shipped out two cornerstone players in Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper this season and could remain active as Tuesday's trade deadline approaches, but any deals the club makes won't feature Carr. In a season of juiced-up quarterback production, however, Carr still looks like a below-average option in most fantasy leagues, especially now that one of his top wideouts in Cooper is out of the mix.
