Carr would hit Nelson Agholor for a 7-yard score with 89 seconds remaining in the sport that obtained the Raiders inside of a score and was the franchise history-setter at No. 151. It proved way too little way too late, nonetheless.
“It truly is hardly ever excellent adequate when you reduce, he knows that, I know that,” explained Raiders coach Jon Gruden. “Stats are fantastic. He is performed a heck of a position for this football workforce, all we’ve been by means of with the virus and not owning any offseason system and hoping to crack in two rookie receivers [Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards] and then shedding two rookie receivers [to harm]. And not owning [offensive linemen] Trent [Brown] and Richie [Incognito]. It truly is been hard on him.
“I would not problem a person issue about Derek Carr he’s provided you every little thing he’s obtained, and he’s carrying out very darn excellent.”
The wins, even though, have not followed. And Carr has now fumbled 61 moments in his career, shedding forty six of them.
“I can discuss for Derek, as well: I experience like we are our largest critics,” explained second-year operating again Josh Jacobs, who was bottled up for forty eight yards, the 3rd-most affordable total of his young career, on 15 carries. “Just about every day, we consider to occur in and perform on the little things.
