The Oakland Raiders quarterback was off to a good start Sunday, completing 12 of his first 15 passes for 167 yards and a TD against the Green Bay Packers.
But one costly run marred his performance late in the second quarter.
On the first play after the two-minute warning in the first half, Carr scrambled to his left and tried to dive for the end zone.
He extended the ball and had it knocked loose.
The fumble then went through the end zone.
It’s a play Carr knows all too well.
Two seasons ago, a struggling Raiders team was on the verge of beating the Dallas Cowboys in a Week 15 game in Oakland.
The Raiders trailed 20-17 in the final minute when Carr went diving toward the end zone on a scramble, on the same side of the field, no less. and had the ball knocked loose by the Cowboys’ Jeff Heath.
