Derek Carr: Record against winning teams

Derek Carr is entering his 8th season as the Las Vegas Raiders starting quarterback. He has been good enough to not question the position. At the same time he hasn’t been good enough to give the Raiders what they need. The Raiders are approaching a tough decision in the near future in regards to their future direction quarterback. For right now, the Raiders appear to be committed to Carr.

Let’s take a look at how many times the Las Vegas Raiders won games against teams with a winning record with Derek Carr as their starting quarterback.

I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat anyone good. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats.

First off and most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. Secondly, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league.
