Oh the Las Vegas Raiders have kept their season alive thanks to the beautiful right arm of Derek Carr and strong right leg of kicker Derek Carlson. The team was down late to the Cleveland Browns and nearly lost in Week 15. Yet, with the game on the line, the Las Vegas Raiders kept their playoff odds alive with the Monday win on the road against the Browns. This game will be talked about for a while.
Raiders still have postseason hope thanks to Monday’s victory
Make no mistake about it, the Raiders still have postseason hope thanks to Monday’s victory on the road against Cleveland. While Las Vegas is out of the hunt for the AFC West title, that doesn’t mean they can’t go on a run to try and grab one of the AFC Wild Card spots. Remember that this year there will be three teams in the Wild Card instead of just two.
This is of course huge for Las Vegas, especially as they’re battling Cleveland for one of those positions. That’s what makes the Week 15 win so massive. While the Las Vegas odds to make the postseason haven’t been updated as of this writing, they have kept their season alive. A loss to Cleveland would have been catastrophic. With that said, Carr was able to lead the team on one final drive to set up Carlson’s game-winner.
“We love you guys here in Cleveland,” Carr said after the win on Monday night. “It’s chilly Cleveland. You guys (fans in the stands) came out in full support and those of you supporting us from home, we thank you guys. We pulled out the victory. It wasn’t pretty, a little adversity, but that’s what we like. God bless you guys and go Raiders.”
O próprio Carr teve um jogo de cima e para baixo, quando ele terminou as coisas jogando 236 jardas e um touchdown.No entanto, também lançou uma interceptação no final do quarto trimestre, enquanto tentava encontrar Zay Jones para uma bomba profunda.Além dessa interceptação, Carr também virou a bola em um fumble.Ele precisa limpar as coisas, mas no final do dia, fez peças tarde para dar a sua equipe uma chance para a vitória.
Raiders têm três jogos restantes para travar os playoffs
As coisas realmente estão chegando a isso, como o Raiders têm três jogos restantes para travar os playoffs.Felizmente para o time, dois dos três últimos jogos de Las Vegas serão disputados no Allegiant Stadium em Sin City.Após essa vitória sobre o Cleveland, os Raiders sediarão o Denver Broncos neste próximo domingo.É uma enorme inclinação da AFC West e também terá grandes implicações no curinga.
O que alguns fãs preocupados é que Denver tenha uma defesa incrível.Eles mantêm as equipes sob controle nas últimas semanas.Com isso dito, quando os Raiders e o Broncos enfrentaram no início desta temporada, Carr jogou por mais de 300 jardas e dois touchdowns.Esse jogo também veio na estrada.Carr será capaz de ter esse tipo de jogo contra na semana 16?
Following the contest vs. the Broncos, the Raiders will then head to Indianapolis to take on the Colts. Then, they’ll close out the regular season in Week 18 going up against the Los Angeles Chargers. Depending on how things shape out over the next two weeks, Las Vegas’ game against the Chargers could determine whether or not they keep their NFL playoffs odds alive or not. Stay tuned.
The pressure is on for Carr to step up and get it done
In closing, we’ve simply got to point out that the pressure is on for Carr to step up and get it done for the Raiders. He’s been quite inconsistent in recent weeks, but that simply can’t happen down the stretch. This weekend, he’ll have a golden chance to silence his haters if he’s able to record a strong win over Denver. That win will skyrocket the team’s postseason hopes.
On top of that, don’t forget that Carr’s contract is all set to expire at the end of next season. Las Vegas and Carr haven’t been negotiating, as they made it more than clear that they wanted to focus on the 2021 campaign and then deal with contract talks this winter. Well, Carr can earn himself quite the payout if he gets Vegas to the playoffs and stars in doing so.
However, if Las Vegas fails to make it in, would the team really be willing to break the bank to sign him? They’re not going to give him a multi-year contract if he can’t live up to things. With the high price tag for QBs this day, Carr is going to play at a high level to back up the money he’s potentially going to receive. This just adds to the intrigue on how he’ll close out the year.
It’s not just on him, though, as he’ll need help from guys like Josh Jacobs, Hunter Renfrow, Bryan Edwards and others. The hope is that Darren Waller can return from his injury soon too. If that happens, and Waller can make plays like usual, it could really help out Carr and the Raiders for the long haul.
