The Oakland Raiders offense finally managed to find its footing in a win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 4 of the 2018 NFL season. However, Derek Carr feels there is still plenty of room for improvement.
The Raiders offense enjoyed their best outing of the new seasonn. According to Luke Straub of Raiders Wire, Carr says they are still hardly where they need to be:
“We’re learning, to be honest with you, on the fly. But at the same time, I still feel like we’re doing some good things … I feel like we’re in a good place but I still feel like we could be a lot better. We’re not near to where we want to be yet.”
There was plenty of good to take away from their 45-point outing against a talented Browns defense on Sunday. However, it is clear that Carr is hoping Oakland can somewhat maintain this type of production.
Despite a couple of miscues, Carr undoubtedly had his best game of the year. He completed 35 of 58 passes for 437 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions. He managed to spread the wealth among his wideouts by connecting with seven receivers at least three times. More importantly, the Raiders were finally able to get their ground game going with Marshawn Lynch. The veteran showed off flashes of his prime self with 130 yards on 20 carries. He may have even been able to add to that total had it not been for a premature whistle.
Needless to say, it is encouraging to see the offense finally click on all cylinders. However, they will need to display some consistency moving forward if they are to get this season back on track.
