• If QB Derek Carr completes 14 passes, he will become the sixth rookie in NFL history and just the fifth different Raider (seventh time) ever to reach 300 completions in a season.

• If Carr throws for 324 yards, he will become the 13th rookie in NFL history and the eighth different Raider (15th time) to throw for 3,000 yards in a season.

• If Carr tosses three touchdowns he will reach 20 for his career, making him the eighth rookie since 1950 to reach that mark.

• Look for Carr to remain in the top 10 all-time among both NFL rookies and single-season Raiders performances with a completion percentage of 60.5 percent (min. 200 attempts).

• If RB Latavius Murray records at least 20 rushing attempts in consecutive games, it will mark the second time a Raiders back has done so in the last three seasons (last: Rashad Jennings, 42 carries from Nov. 10-17, 2013).

• If FB Marcel Reece posts a receiving touchdown in consecutive games, it will be the first time in his career. His 10th receiving score would tie him with Hewritt Dixon and Charlie Smith for the fifth most all-time among Raider running backs.

• If RB Darren McFadden catches four passes, he will move past Charlie Garner (211) into second place in receptions among Raider running backs.

• If LB Khalil Mack has a multi-sack game, he will become just the fourth Raider rookie to have two multi-sack games in a season, tying Trevor Scott (two in 2008) for third on that list.

• If S Charles Woodson records his 22nd interception as a Raider, he will break into the top 10 in franchise history, tying Warren Powers for 10th place.

• If DL Antonio Smith picks up at least half a sack, it will mark his eighth straight season with at least 3.5 sacks, joining Jared Allen, DeMarcus Ware and Mario Williams as the only players to do so in each season since 2007.

• If K Sebastian Janikowski totals four points, he will tie Olindo Mare (1,555) for 18th place on the all-time scoring list.

• If CB TJ Carrie picks up at least 12 punt return yards, he will pass Chris Woods (189 in 1987) for the ninth most among Raider rookies. Carrie needs four punt returns to crack the top 10 among Raider rookies, tying Denarius Moore and Alvin Wyatt (25).
