Derek Carr Out 6-8 Weeks


Despite almost blowing a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter versus Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, the Oakland Raiders were able to hold on to win 33-25. While they won the battle, they lost the war as franchise quarterback Derek Carr went down.

At the time, it looked bad and it ended up being that way for Raider nation. With Super Bowl aspirations, Oakland will now have to get there with backup Matt McGloin.

If the Raiders beat Denver this weekend, they’d lock up the AFC West, which would give them a bye and at least one home game.
