Derek Carr is gone.

Yet, the turnover issues have continued for the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders are committing turnovers at an alarming rate and they have committed, at least, one turnover in 15 straight games. According to The Associated Press, it is the longest current such streak in the NFL.

So, this streak covers the first eight games of this season and the final seven games of the 2022 season.

New starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been a big reason why the Raiders’ turnover issues have persisted this season. He has an NFL-leading nine interceptions despite the fact that he has missed two-and-a half games due to injury.

It’s been a brutal part of this season.
