According to the Associated Press, since 2019 (Renfrow’s rookie season), Carr and Renfrow have the third highest passing rating in the NFL. Carr and Renfrow’s passing rating during that time is 127.2. That’s pretty good. Here is the full leader list:

Of course, new No. 1 Las Vegas receiver Davante Adams is a monster in the red zone. So, now Carr will have yet another great weapon in the red zone. I fully expect the Raiders’ red-zone woes, as a whole, is behind them.
