Derek Carr’s emotions emerge after Raiders lose to Colts

LAS VEGAS (AP) — After nine frustrating years, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is fed up.

Carr got emotional after the Raiders squandered a fourth-quarter lead in a 25-20 loss to an Indianapolis Colts roster now under the management of Jeff Saturday, who had never coached an NFL game prior to Sunday.

“I can’t speak for everyone, I know where I stand — I love silver and black,” Carr said. “I’m going to give everything I can every time I go out there. And I can’t speak for everyone, every man, what’s on their mind, but I can tell you what’s on my mind and I’ll give it my all every time.”

Carr paused. Then he cried.

It was the Raiders’ third straight loss and dropped them to 2-7, the second-worst record in the NFL.

This was not to be the way the 2022 season was to go under first-year coach Josh McDaniels, an offensive guru with six Super Bowl rings as an assistant with the New England Patriots. And with Carr’s best friend and college teammate, wide receiver Davante Adams, arriving from Green Bay.
