Derek Carr Fights Back Tears While Discussing Raiders’ Woes vs. Colts
In this story:
Las Vegas Raiders
One of the most noteworthy storylines heading into Week 10 across the NFL was how the Colts would perform in their first game under interim coach Jeff Saturday.
The Colts beat the Raiders 25-20 in Las Vegas, notching the first win for Saturday and adding to the mounting frustrations for the Raiders under first-year coach Josh McDaniels.
The Raiders dropped to 2-7 on the season, and the frustration over the latest disappointing loss is clearly wearing on Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who was emotional while addressing the media in the postgame press conference.
“I love Josh. I love my coaches. Carr cried as he tried to hold back his tears. “I’m sorry that I was emotional. “I’m just pissed about some of the things we try to do just for practice, what our bodies go through just to get to sleep at night. And for that to be the result of all that effort, it pisses me off.”
Any hopes that the Raiders have of making a playoff push are dwindling by the week. The Raiders are currently at 2-7 and just one spot ahead of the Texans in terms of the worst record in the NFL.
