OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Rookie Derek Carr threw three touchdown passes to make a case he should be Oakland's starting quarterback, and the Raiders wrapped up the preseason with a 41-31 victory Thursday night over the Seattle Seahawks.
Carr was almost perfect in the start in place of Matt Schaub, completing 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards, and led Oakland (2-2) to four touchdowns in four drives.
Schaub was anointed the starter after being acquired in an offseason trade from Houston. Coach Dennis Allen hasn't deviated from that plan even as Schaub struggled in the preseason before resting this game with a sore throwing elbow.
Now the question will be if Carr's strong performance against Seattle (2-2) will be enough to change that plan.
