HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Bakersfield native Derek Carr practiced game-winning drives over and over when he was growing up and now he has the Las Vegas Raiders in the hunt for a playoff spot.

The eight-year veteran ranks second since entering the league in 2014 with 29 game-winning drives, second only to Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has 30.

This year, the Raiders have needed all the wins they could get. And they need another Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, likely an all-or-nothing showdown between AFC West rivals.
