These have been tumultuous times in Las Vegas where the Raiders are concerned, given how the Jon Gruden era came to a sudden end. But to their credit, the people in the locker room pulled together and came away with a win on the road over their long-time rivals the Denver Broncos.
In that win one of the those leaders, quarterback Derek Carr, put together a fine performance. Carr hit on 18 of 27 passes for 341 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and continued to show confidence in both the downfield passing game as well as young wideout Henry Ruggs III. This video highlights those aspects of his play, plus a brilliant read and throw on a touchdown to Kenyan Drake:
By popular request, three throws from Derek Carr! With a cameo from Bryan Edwards for his fans.
