LAS VEGAS (AP) — After nine frustrating years, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is fed up.

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Last year and at the start of this season, Las Vegas Raiders second-year linebacker Divine Deablo used to focus on analytical websites, paying attention to his grades.
“When I noticed they didn’t realize what we were actually running — like I’m dropping to the boundary, they catch it to the field, and they blame that on me — I’m like ‘OK I gotta stop paying attention to these grades, and just play ball and whatever coaches say just listen to them,’” he said.
