13th in the 2022 NFL Quarterbacks power rankings:
Derek Carr finally took that next step and got the Las Vegas Raiders back to the playoffs. It was Carr’s first playoff game in his career, and the controversial call about the whistle being blown midway through a play will be discussed forever (but they still had the ball in the red zone with a shot to win the game, so let’s move on).
Carr is getting his former college teammate back in Davante Adams to pair with Darren Waller and the “Wes Welker-y” Hunter Renfrow. You’re probably going to ask why Carr landed at 13?
It’s simply the fact that he’s inconsistent. Just take a look at his stats and how the team has done. They do deserve credit for persevering over everything that happened last year with Henry Ruggs and John Gruden.
The AFC West leveled up, and the Raiders may have an excellent record, but they could miss the playoffs.
