Bridgestone Elite Performance Of The Week: Regular Season Week 15


If you hadn't noticed, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree is arguably quarterback Derek Carr's favorite red zone target.

With two weeks to go in the regular season, No. 15 currently leads all Raiders with eight touchdowns, and 56 receptions.

If there's one thing you know you're going to get from the former Texas Tech Red Raider, it's consistency. Since joining the team, Crabtree has continued to serve as a reliable source of production, and has been a go-to target for Carr. Sunday, No. 4 targeted him 17 times, which is a healthy dose to say the least. Crabtree ended up hauling in seven of his 17 targets for 39 yards and two touchdowns.

To put the Raiders on the board for the first time, the offense lined up on the two yard line, and Carr delivered a beautiful touch pass to Crabtree on a fade route in the right corner of the end zone, beating cornerback Chidobe Awuzie in the process.

The Raiders obviously would've preferred to pull out a victory on Sunday, but that's not what happened. The team will have to get back on track with a win over the Eagles on Christmas Day, but prior the game's commencement, let's take a look at this week's Elite Performance Moment of the Week, presented by Bridgestone.
