Carr was a point of interest in the game and he did nothing to slow down his 5,000-yard chase.

The Raiders star went 21-23 for 215 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception, including 16 straight passes to end the half before throwing an incomplete pass.

Las Vegas, like every other team on the calendar, attacks the Eagles linebackers with the running game and passes the offense to the dismay of Jonathan Gannon. Kenyans Drake and Josh Jacobs combined for 10 carries and 5 receptions as we feared, while Philadelphia linebackers struggled again at the point of attack.

Las Vegas had the worst ground average participating in this contest.

In an effort to put Las Vegas ahead 14-7, the Raiders covered 96 yards in 10 plays and finished with Josh Jacobs’ 8-yard touchdown.
