1. The Good: Derek Carr has a strong showinghttps://www.facebook.com/Raiders/photos/4899705810059867
It's no secret that Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders have lost a step or two in the last couple of weeks. The team looked to be on the ropes between losing 28-14 on Monday night Football against the Los Angeles Rams and then getting hammered 20-9 by the Chicago Bears.
On Sunday, October 17, though, Carr connected on 18 of 27 for 341 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions during the divisional game against the Denver Broncos. It was almost as if the Raiders were a completely new offense.
Keep in mind that Carr had a touchdown to interception ratio of 2-2 against the Rams and the Bears, giving him some of the worst stats of the season. Fortunately for Carr, he seems to have recovered from whatever was wrong relatively quickly and found a way to bring the offense to life again. Furthermore, he hung in there under pressure and helped his team to a divisional round that could pave the way for a playoff push. It's all just a matter of whether Carr can keep it up or not.
