Where does Raiders Derek Carr land in our complete AFC QB rankings?
After leading his team to the playoffs for the second time, Derek Carr finally got to play in a playoff game in 2021. While they would lose to the Bengals, Carr and the Raiders gave them all they could handle in a game that came down to the wire. This was the story in most of the Raiders wins last season as Carr added to his list of game-winning drives.
Throughout last season, no NFL quarterback had to deal with more than Derek Carr did. Despite losing his head coach and number one wide receiver mid-season, Carr still posted the highest yardage total of his career with 4,804 yards. In addition, he threw 23 touchdowns with fourteen interceptions.
In 2022, Derek Carr will have to endure another coaching change. Regardless, Derek Carr is highly likely to be the quarterback in Las Vegas for at least another season. While he may not be an elite quarterback like the guys ahead of him, the Raiders could certainly do much worse. With improved talent at the wide receiver positions and offensive line, Carr can easily take the Raiders back to the playoffs next season.
