Raiders quarterback Derek Carr continued his ascension up the Raiders’ franchise record books with another multiple-touchdown game on Sunday. He also tightened his grip on a less flattering mark.

Carr’s two lost fumbles in the 36-20 road loss to New England gave him 26 in his career, the most in the league since 2014.

He has fumbled a total of 56 times over that span, second only to Russell Wilson’s 61. Carr was charged with a fumble on the pitch to Jalen Richard in Monday night’s win over the Saints, though the toss was accurate and should probably have been handled cleanly by Richard.

Carr has done plenty of good along with the bad.

He finished Sunday’s game 24-for-32 for 261 yards and two touchdowns for a rating of 119.4, his third straight game with a passer rating of better than 100.
