Derek Carr won the first Castrol Edge Clutch Player of the Week honor of the season when he led the Raiders on a game-winning drive and two-point conversion against the Saints in New Orleans to open the season. Now he’s nominated once again for his comeback performance against the Ravens in Baltimore last Sunday.
In total, Carr threw four touchdown passes, with the fourth one of the game-winning variety on a 23-yard strike to Michael Crabtree in the back of the end zone with just over two minutes remaining. Carr went four of six on that final drive for 66 yards and the touchdown.
His competition for the award:
WILL FULLER, HOUSTON TEXANS
Fuller returned a 67-yard punt for a touchdown late in the third quarter, giving the Houston Texans a 27-20 over the Tennessee Titans. Fuller also caught 81 receiving yards and a touchdown.
JOHN KUHN, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Kuhn scored three touchdowns, including a late one-yard run to cap off a 35-34 comeback victory for the New Orleans Saints over the San Diego Chargers.
CASE KEENUM, LOS ANGELES RAMS
Keenum hit Brian Quick with four-yard touchdown pass with 2:41 to play in the fourth quarter, leading the Los Angeles Rams to a 17-13 victory and a 3-1 overall record.
ALLEN HURNS, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
Hurns caught a Blake Bortles pass and took it 42 yards for a late touchdown and helped seal a 30-27 Jacksonville Jaguars victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
