Earlier this season Derek Carr moved into fourth on the Raiders all-time passing leader list, and in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts he moved into third. Entering the team’s matchup at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Carr needed only 182 yards to surpass Daryle Lamonica, and he did so on a deep pass to tight end Jared Cook who beat his defender for a 30-yard gain. Through the first three quarters of play, No. 4 was efficient in the pocket, and his 15th completion of the afternoon brought his total to 207 yards, two passing touchdowns, and gave him the title of the third leading passing in Raiders' history, he also added the first rushing touchdown of his career.
LaMonica totaled 16,655 passing yards in his career, and is one of the all-time greats in Raiders lore. With Carr now third all-time, Rich Gannon is second with 17,585 passing yards, and Ken Stabler is first 19,078 passing yards. It’s possible No. 4 could surpass both this season, but only time will tell. The former Fresno State quarterback has accomplished a lot in his five seasons as a Raider, and he’s just getting started.
