Derek Carr's performance in the Raiders' victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers has not gone unnoticed, as the quarterback has been nominated for Week 2 FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors.
In the 26-17 win over the Steelers, Carr threw for 382 yards and two touchdowns with a 75.7 percent completion rating. He also had a 126.2 quarterback rating.
"Hopefully he gets some recognition for doing what he did today," Jon Gruden said after Sunday's win. "He had some long drives; he was big again at the end of the game against two great defenses two weeks in a row. And it's a big reason why we've been able to win."
FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in the name of the winning quarterback to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The other two nominees for the FedEx Air NFL Player of Week 2 are Tom Brady and Kyler Murray.
