Bills Vs. Saints Final Score, Results: Josh Allen Racks Up Four TDs In Blowout Win Over New Orleans

Carr silences critics amid classic. The 2021 NFL's regular season didn't end until Monday on the East Coast when the Steelers finally learned they'd be going to the playoffs -- right along with the Raiders. There was infinite chaos, clutch performances and head-scratching moments. Despite all the grandeur of this instant classic, most will focus on the Chargers calling a timeout deep in overtime. Were the Raiders actually playing for the tie and running out the clock? Apparently. Maybe. That all changed when Josh Jacobs busted loose and Daniel Carlson's 47-yard kick was true. Overshadowed by all the talk of ties and timeouts is that Derek Carr has led the Raiders to the playoffs. While Sunday night was a classic, this season has been a nightmare more often than not for the Raiders. And yet Carr is set to play in his first playoff game. It's a long time coming and he had to deal with a ridiculous amount of scrutiny on the way. It's the second time in his eight-season Raiders tenure that the franchise has gone to the playoffs, and though his play was a crucial factor in the 2016 squad advancing to the dance, he was unable to enjoy it because he sustained a broken leg in Week 16 of that season. This time around, Carr has willed his squad along in a season overflowing with calamity and chaos. He wasn't outstanding on Sunday night, but he and his team got the result they needed. He finished with 186 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's triumph, which somewhat symbolized the utter disarray the Raiders have emerged from. He ended the regular season with a franchise-record 4,804 yards, sitting atop a list of Silver and Black legends. For so long, Carr has produced numbers that have gone under the radar, often overlooked because the end results was that the Raiders were at home in January. Now, they're heading to Cincinnati and Carr is leading the way.
