The Raiders were holding onto a 21-17 lead, but facing a critical 3rd and 10 from the Los Angeles 16. Carr took the snap from shotgun, and when nothing developed it looked like Vegas would have to settle for a field goal.
But their quarterback took off toward the middle, determined to move the sticks on his own. He met the defense a few yards short of the first down, but took flight and got the job done. It was awesome.
Two plays later, Carr found Darren Waller for a two-yard touchdown, and the Raiders had an 11-point lead instead of settling for a seven-point lead.
These are the types of plays that have been missing from Raiders games a lot this season, and they’re certainly plays that will be remembered by Carr’s teammates, especially if the Raiders hang onto the win.
