How Derek Carr carved up Chiefs' defense in Raiders' huge upset win
How Carr Rolled Chiefs' D in a Huge Raiders Victory originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Few saw it coming. I definitely didn't.
Derek Carr had never beaten the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The Raiders hadn't won there since 2012. Their defenses had been set alight left and right, and their season seemed to be circling the drain. Losing seemed imminent, especially after Silver and Black fell 14-3.
But Jon Gruden stopped being conservative and chose the deep ball to attack the Chiefs secondary school. Carr, long derided as "Check Down Charlie," tossed a 59-yard touchdown pass to Nelson Agholor, then hit Henry Ruggs for a 72-yard score to give the Raiders the lead.
Carr ended the day 347 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' 40-32 win. Carr and Gruden clearly identified a weak spot in the Chiefs' defense, and the seasoned caller was able to tear it apart deep in the middle of the field to get a giant monkey off his back.

Carr said he was "tired of losing" after the Raiders were beaten by the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. The NFL is a "show me, don't tell me" league, and # 4 silenced many of its critics with its Sunday outing.
Now the 3-2 Raiders head into Bye Week with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waiting for them in Week 7. Another great feat from Carr will get people to recognize Silver and Black as legitimate playoff competitors.
