Despite having one of his roughest days donning the Silver & Black, second-year quarterback still made history during the Raiders 34-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Carr finished Sunday’s game 31-for-48 for 283 yards, two touchdowns and a season-high three interceptions. Despite a quarterback rating of just 68.3, Carr still eclipsed the 3,000-yard mark, making him the eighth NFL quarterback with 3,000 passing yards in each of his first two seasons.
The former Fresno State Bulldog has also thrown for 20 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons, joining Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks to throw for 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in his first two seasons.
Even though he entered the record book again, Carr knows he must play better to help his team won.
When asked how he graded himself in Sunday’s loss, he responded frankly: “Not how I wanted.”
But veteran and future Hall of Fame safety Charles Woodson knows his quarterback is young and will learn from the experience.
“He’s young,” Woodson said after the game. “Every experience that he goes through he’s going to learn from it. He’s going to be able to grow as a player. The ceiling is high for Derek. This is just one blip on the radar and he’ll be fine going forward.”
