During Week 8 of the 2016 NFL season, Carr threw for a franchise record 513 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 30-24 overtime victory.
Carr also threw for four touchdowns without an interception making him just the third quarterback ever to throw for over 500 yards and four touchdowns without an interception.
Since Carr’s rookie season, he has led 11 game winning drives (5 game-winning passes in 2016), which is tied for the most in the NFL.
The former Bulldog has also thrown 81 touchdowns in his career which is fourth all-time amongst quarterbacks in their first three years.
Amazingly, Carr is already in many of the NFL record books for the league and the franchise. Quite the incredible feat considering he is only entering his fourth season.
