Oakland Raiders @ San Francisco 49ers – NFL Network, 8:20 PM

Carr hitting his targets

Derek Carr has the highest adjusted completion percentage on throws of 20 yards or more in the NFL this year. Despite his accuracy, Carr is only attempting a deep pass on 8.8% of his throws.

A clean pocket keeps the Carr running

Derek Carr has been a different quarterback when he’s faced pressure this season.

Missing Mack

Missing the presence of Khalil Mack has been a storyline all season – and for good reason. Mack has more sacks and forced fumbles than all the Raiders edge defenders combined.

The good, the bad, and the corners

The Raiders cornerback unit has shown a lot of promise in 2018, but they have also made their share of mistakes.

Kittle shining bright

The second-year tight end, George Kittle, is proving to be a weapon the 49ers can build on for the future.

The rookie and the vet

Mike McGlinchey and Joe Staley may be at opposite ends of their careers, but the two are both responsible for powering the 49ers second-ranked run-blocking attack.

Thomas not making an impact

The 49ers rank 26th in team pass-rush grading, and they’ll need players like Solomon Thomas to step up if they want to improve.

Falling Foster

Reuben Foster’s production has significantly decreased over recent weeks.
