According to Sports Spectrum, the win marks the first time the Raiders won three consecutive victories after 19 years. It was 2002 since they last reached the Super Bowl.
In the game Sunday, Quarterback Derek Carr led the team with the best football of his career. The eight-year veteran from Fresno State passed 1,203 yards, making him the fourth player in NFL history to pass at least 1,200 yards through his team’s first three games. The other three were Tom Brady in 2011, Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2018, and Kurt Warner in 2000.
Derek Carr Brings Back Glory To God
After the game, a CBS reporter asked Derek about his poise and confidence in an on-field interview. He then responded, “All the self-glory, that stuff is fleeting. I’ve already been through that. God took me to a place that all I want to do is glorify Him. And wherever He’s going, that’s where I want to go. So if it’s a win, awesome. If not, I’m still gonna glorify Him.”
The Raiders quarterback has always been outspoken about his Christian faith since he entered the league in 2014. In fact, before this year’s season began, he shared to the Associated Press that his platform is a gift from God.
“I believe God gave me talents to be in this position,” he told Associated Press. “Anybody could be the quarterback here, but in my belief, He’s allowed me to be the quarterback here. And I’m gonna continue to give this thing everything that I have. I think that I’ve done that for seven years.”
