Mack: Anthem stance with Carr a show of unity

Raiders QB Derek Carr said placing his hand on the shoulder of teammate Khalil Mack during the national anthem was not meant to be a protest but a demonstration of unity. Mack said the gesture was "to show togetherness."

Carr, Goff shine in Rams 24-21 exhibition win over Raiders

Derek Carr threw two touchdown passes for Oakland in his first game since breaking his leg last season and Jared Goff led three scoring drives for the Rams during Los Angeles' 24-21 exhibition victory over the Raiders on Saturday night.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders played their starters for three series in an eventual 24-21 loss to the Rams, into the second quarter, on both sides of the ball. And while the offense, particularly quarterback Derek Carr, looked crisp, the defense was burned to a crisp…other than reigning NFL defensive player of the year Khalil Mack. It was a good tune-up for both sides, though you have to wonder how much the Raiders will subject their front-line players to potential injury the next two exhibition games. Even if the defense needs major tinkering. It was the third-string defense that gave up the lead with just over a minute to play as Oakland fell to 0-2 in the preseason.

It was the first time Derek Carr took the field since suffering a broken right fibula on Christmas Eve, and the Raiders QB was sharp, even if he left some air under a few deep passes, In three series, Carr completed 7 of 9 passes for 100 yards with two TDs and an INT.

Khalil Mack, the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, is ready for the season opener on Sept. 10 at Tennessee. In three defensive series against the Rams, Mack had a sack of Jared Goff, three QB pressures, four tackles, with two for a loss.
