Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck are going to start being compared more often moving forward.

That is true not only because of some of their similar attributes, but also because of Carr’s current contract situation on the heels of Luck’s six-year $140 million contract.

As Carr gets prepared for his payday, here is a look at five reasons why Carr is more valuable than Luck.

No. 1, Carr turns the ball over less

The first and most glaring stat one must look at when comparing Luck and Carr each player’s propensity to turn the ball over.

Over the last three seasons, Carr has thrown 31 interceptions to Luck’s 41. Those stats also include Carr’s rookie season, which is often plagued by interceptions for quarterbacks, and Luck missing nine games in 2015 due to injury.

Carr is on an upward trend when it comes to taking care of the ball, totaling just six interceptions in 2016, whereas Luck’s interception total has been in the double digits for three straight seasons.
