5 keys to success for the Las Vegas Raiders 2020 season
The Raiders 2020 season rests squarely on the right arm of Derek Carr, and hopefully, his feet as well. This has been a tremendous summer for the seventh-year starter, as he is getting incredible praise from his general manager and teammates alike, and looking to shrug off a career in Oakland that led to him being booed out of the Coliseum.
With all of that behind him, Carr has been focused on being the unquestioned leader of this Raiders franchise, and the team will need for him to translate that to the regular season in 2020. This is a guy who is coming off back-to-back 4,000-yard seasons, and in 2019, he finished only second to Drew Brees in completion percentage, completing over 70 percent of his passes.
The statistics have not been an issue for Carr, as he has re-written the Raiders record books in terms of passing, but the wins have been hard to come by. He is going to have to lead this team to at least a winning record this season if he hopes to continue to be considered the answer at the position.
Carr is certainly talented enough to take this group and lead then to ten wins this season, and he finally has the talent around him, and the consistency in the coaching staff that he has been lacking. If he can start stacking wins, the Raiders are in really good shape, as he is still only 29-years old, and has a lot of football ahead of him.
