Raider Nation and football fans everywhere crushed by Derek Carr injury

December 25, 2016

The Oakland Raiders, on their way to the playoffs for the first time in 14 years, suffered a crushing blow Saturday when Derek Carr broke the fibula in his right leg against Indianapolis.

Carr was the second star QB to go down Saturday, after Tennessee's Marcus Mariota fractured his fibula. But while the Titans were just trying to make the playoffs, the Raiders were considered Super Bowl contenders, and Carr a possible MVP.

Carr vowed to return soon ...

But Raider Nation understandably was crushed, as were football fans everywhere.
