Las Vegas Raiders’ quarterback Derek Carr has been putting up unreal numbers in the first three weeks of the season.
Now, in the spotlight of Monday Night Football, Carr has a chance to make NFL history at SoFi Stadium against the Los Angeles Chargers. If he throws for at least 375 yards and two touchdown passes, it will mark the first time in league history that a quarterback has ever accomplished that in each of the first four games of the season.
So, essentially, Carr is on the verge of establishing the greatest start of the season by an NFL quarterback. Let that sink in.

Carr — who is leading the NFL in passing yardage and who is on pace to shatter the league passing yardage record — has tossed for 435, 382 and 386 yards in games this season. He has thrown two touchdown passes in each game.
Now, let’s see if he can make history against the Chargers.
