The Silver and Black were defeated this past Sunday at home by the Tennessee Titans to fall to 6-7 on the campaign. In the contest, QB Derek Carr passed for 263 yards on 25-of-34 attempts with two touchdowns for a passer rating of 115.2, his fourth time surpassing a rating of 115.0 this season. The game marked Carr's 41st career contest tossing at least two touchdowns in a game, the ninth-most occurrences in NFL history through a player's first six seasons. TE Darren Waller tallied six receptions for 73 yards in the contest and became just the third tight end in franchise history to surpass 70 receptions in a single season. Waller currently ranks second in the NFL among tight ends with 880 receiving yards in 2019, while ranking third with 72 catches. No tight end this season has more yards after the catch than Waller's 417 through the first 14 weeks of the year.
Through the first 14 weeks of the season, TE Darren Waller has been on a tear and is on pace for the first 1,000-yard season of his career, while currently ranked sixth all-time among Raiders tight ends for receiving yards in a single season.
On defense, DT Maurice Hurst registered his first career interception and rumbled 55 yards to put the offense in position to score their first touchdown of the game.
