Las Vegas vs Washington Football Team: 3 Raiders to watch in Week 13
Derek Carr, Quarterback
Did I save the best for last here? Perhaps. The quarterback is the engine that drives the Raiders, and they will only go as far as the eight-year starting quarterback will take them. For a season that has faced so much change and turmoil, including some bad play from the captain himself, it is truly astonishing to see his name still atop the league lead in passing yards.
Carr had himself a Thanksgiving to remember with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys this past week, and after three horrendous performances before his Thanksgiving breakout, he may be getting back to his best, in a season that may end up being his best, despite all of the drama in Las Vegas this season.
The Las Vegas Raiders are sitting at 6-5, and have a real chance of making the playoffs, but if they do not, you can likely blame these five things.
For the Silver and Black to pull off a victory in this contest, Carr must be at his best and shred the Washington defense routinely. Keep an eye on the Captain as he will be the biggest key to a Las Vegas victory.
