Derek Carr is your all-time leader in touchdown passes for a Raiders quarterback with 151, moving past Ken Stabler with a 7-yard toss to Nelson Agholor. But Las Vegas has four fumbles in the fourth quarter this season and Carr has three of them. His latest came when stripped of the ball with his team driving in Buffalo territory and down 30-16. The Raiders were without starters at wide receiver (Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards) and on the offensive line (Trent Browns and Richie Incognito).
