Oakland Raiders @ Arizona Cardinals – CBS, 4:05 PM

Accuracy not an issue for Carr

Despite the down year, Derek Carr has been accurate throwing the ball this season, as 79.0% of his throws have been deemed catchable – the third-highest mark in the league.

Carr not really stretching the field

Through 10 weeks, Carr’s average depth of target has been just 6.2 yards downfield – the lowest among all 32 starting quarterbacks.

Raiders defense is prone to big plays

Through week 10, the Raiders have allowed a play of 20-plus yards on 8.3% of snaps, the second-highest rate in the league.

Hurst looking like a Day 3 steal

Fifth-round rookie Maurice Hurst has looked great in his first year, ranking second in run stops and third in pressures among all rookie interior defenders.

 

Rosen facing constant pressure

Josh Rosen has been under pressure on 41.5% of his dropbacks this year, which is the fourth-highest rate in the league.

Rosen struggling under pressure

Rosen has a passer rating of just 34.5 when under pressure, over 30 points below league average.

Chandler Jones having a down year

Chandler Jones has never finished outside the top-15 in total pressures since he’s been in the league. That could change this year, however, as Jones has just 28 pressures –  27th among edge defenders.

Peterson still among the best

Patrick Peterson is allowing a passer rating of just 62.3 when targeted this season, fifth best among cornerbacks.
