Las Vegas at Denver Broncos: 3 Raiders to watch in Week 6
Has the ‘Captain’ returned to earth? Or has the offensive line broken completely at the seams leaving Carr little chance to succeed? Well, this is obviously a tough one to answer. The poor play of the offensive line has had Carr on his back foot at a higher rate this season than basically any quarterback.
They have demonstrated there is absolutely zero chance they will not allow Carr to be pressured an enormous amount on a week-to-week basis. However, if watching the loss to Chicago last week, Carr did not do himself any favors by forcing throws and overthrowing his targets.
The receivers did not their job in that stinker as well, but Carr did play a role in an abysmal outing. With back-to-back weeks of Carr underperforming, the Raiders are in danger of losing control of what started as such a promising season, one that was especially promising for Carr, as through his first three games was leading the league in passing yards by a large margin.
It will be insane for Carr to have full trust in this offensive line going forward, but he must make do and make better throws in the meantime. Look for hopefully a bounce-back performance against the Broncos, but if he plays anywhere in the realm of the last couple of weeks, the Raiders surely will go 3-3.
