ALAMEDA, Calif. -- After playing perhaps his worst game as a pro on the biggest stage hes had in three seasons in the NFL, Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wanted to get back on the field the day after his loss in Kansas City.Instead, Carr will have to wait 10 days for another shot when Oakland (10-3) visits San Diego (5-8) on Sunday.Despite that loss, the Raiders can clinch a playoff spot with a win against the Chargers and end a 13-year postseason drought. That would complete a remarkable turnaround for a team that started Carrs rookie season in 2014 with 10 straight losses.Starting 0-10 was not fun, Carr said Wednesday. It makes these moments so awesome. It makes these moments really to already have 10 wins. I know for our team our sole focus is beating the Chargers because if we dont, were still hoping and wishing.Oaklands 21-13 loss to Kansas City (10-3) last week cost the Raiders control of the AFC West with the Chiefs holding the tiebreaker by virtue of sweeping the season series.Oakland can still win the division by posting a better record than Kansas City over the final three games or get in as a wild-card team with another win.But the main focus will be fixing an offense that struggled to move the ball in the air in frigid Kansas City against the Chiefs. Carr went 17 for 41 for 117 yards, posting a career-low 49.1 rating. Carr had his second-lowest completion percentage in a game and set a worst with 2.85 yards per attempt.It was just execution, it was literally inches, Carr said. There were a whole bunch of plays I think about that we always hit that for whatever reason, sometimes it was good feet and the route was good and we just missed by an inch. Sometimes that happens in practice and you never want it to happen in games.It hadnt happened in games much at all this season for Carr and the Raiders, who have used their high-powered passing game to become one of the top teams in the league.Despite the rough day against the Chiefs, Carr still has thrown for 3,492 yards, 24 touchdowns and only five interceptions for a 96 passer rating and taken only 13 sacks.Amari Cooper has already topped 1,000 yards receiving and Michael Crabtree could join him with 194 yards in the final three games, giving Oakland its first pair of 1,000-yard receivers since Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Tim Brown did it in 2001.But Carr struggled to get the ball to either Cooper or Crabtree last week as they combined for 50 yards receiving on 17 targets. One pass in particular, still haunts Oakland.On a third down midway through the fourth quarter, Carr eluded pressure and launched a deep ball to an open Cooper, who got behind the defense and appeared ready to score a touchdown.But at the last minute the ball mysteriously changed directions and fell incomplete as Cooper was unable to adjust. The Raiders still dont know what happened with some speculation that it hit a camera wire, despite denials from NBC.You cant really tell because you cant see the ball the whole way through, Cooper said. It definitely moved, but you cant really tell what actually happened to it.Game notesDL Mario Edwards Jr. participated in his most extensive practice since injuring his hip in the preseason opener but no decision has been made whether to activate him from IR this week. I dont really know yet, he said. Just kind of see how the week goes. ...

Fake Yeezys 350 2019 . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators.Saturday lunchtime on the English south coast will see the only unbeaten team in the Premier League take to the turf at the smallest ground in the division.Mauricio Pochettinos Tottenham Hotspur (5-3-0) will expect to have that record tested to the limit by a dangerous Bournemouth side at the compact 11,500-capacity Vitality Stadium.Spurs go into the latest round of Premier League matches just a point off the top of the table, with only Manchester City and Arsenal ahead of them. Nine games unbeaten at the start of a season would be a Premier League best for Tottenham.That impressive start to the campaign has come despite a reduced preseason. Spurs players completed more European Championship minutes in the summer break than any other squad in the division. Theyve also been built on the bedrock of a strong defence.But Pochettinos side continue to draw too many games -- as was also the case last season when such results denied them a genuine shot at their first top-flight title in over a half century.Last weekends 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion was another such example.Dele Allis classy late finish rescued Spurs from defeat, but ultimately the result saw more points dropped in a game the Lilywhites had dominated. However, a win Saturday and Pochettino would see his team go top of the league -- for a few hours at least.Its a big motivation for us to finish the game and take the three points to be top of the table, he said. Better motivation is impossible. The motivation has been very good on the training ground. Our players are very focused and its a good opportunity to see us at the top of the table.ddddddddddddFirst of all we need to win the game. In front (of us), we have a very good team and a great manager like Eddie Howe so it will be a very tough game.Spurs profligate finishing was also on show in midweek as they failed to make first-half dominance count against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League. They were instead grateful for a resolute defence and an astonishing display by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the second half to send the team back to England with a scoreless draw and a point.Further poor finishing is likely to be punished in the early Saturday kick-off by Howes Cherries (3-2-3). The south-coast club are in strong form of their own, having picked up three good results on the bounce and demolishing Hull City 6-1 a week ago.However, Bournemouths open and attacking style of play appears to suit Spurs, who brushed them aside twice last season, racking up an aggregate scoreline of 8-1 across the two league meetings. Howe is aware of how much of a test Saturdays game will be for his improving team.Whenever one of the best teams in the country comes down its a chance for us to pit our wits against them, he said. Theyre an outstanding team, probably the best team we played last season, so it will be a good test for us.A win for Bournemouth would be their first home victory against a London opponent in six attempts since their promotion to the Premier League.
