Oakland Raiders @ San Francisco 49ers – NFL Network, 8:20 PM
Carr hitting his targets
Derek Carr has the highest adjusted completion percentage on throws of 20 yards or more in the NFL this year. Despite his accuracy, Carr is only attempting a deep pass on 8.8% of his throws.
A clean pocket keeps the Carr running
Derek Carr has been a different quarterback when he’s faced pressure this season.
Missing the presence of Khalil Mack has been a storyline all season – and for good reason. Mack has more sacks and forced fumbles than all the Raiders edge defenders combined.
The good, the bad, and the corners
The Raiders cornerback unit has shown a lot of promise in 2018, but they have also made their share of mistakes.
Kittle shining bright
The second-year tight end, George Kittle, is proving to be a weapon the 49ers can build on for the future.
The rookie and the vet
Thomas not making an impact
The 49ers rank 26th in team pass-rush grading, and they’ll need players like Solomon Thomas to step up if they want to improve.
Reuben Foster’s production has significantly decreased over recent weeks.
