Derek Carr says he told his teammates to believe before their game winning drive against the Ravens

Oakland-Raiders-QB-Derek-Carr-2015-NFL-Season2The Oakland Raiders are still buzzing after their win against the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. One of the biggest bright spots in that game was the play of quarterback Derek Carr. After shredding the Ravens secondary up through the game, Carr had one message for the offense before their game winning drive. Carr says he told his teammates to believe that they can drive the field and score a touchdown.

 

“It’s a tough play the way it happened, but, all I was thinking man, was just give us a chance, please Lord, just give us a chance,” Carr said. “I’m thankful our defense held up and Coach Del Rio did great with the time outs. I think the clock management was awesome to give us that much time and get the ball back. Then after that, I just told the guys in the huddle to believe we could do it. We’ve done this a thousand times in practice. I told them to believe it, and they did a great job of making plays.”

 

It will be interesting to see how the Raiders respond after getting a big win the week before. While they should be happy about what they did, it’s time to move on from this game and on to the next one.
