Raiders' QB Carr learns to pick his spots

(TSX / STATS) -- ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is learning he can do more with less.

Carr has thrown 60 passes in two games for the Raiders after his low total for an entire game last season was 30, with only four games with 32 or fewer throws.

Through two games, Carr is completing 75 percent of his passes (45 of 60) and is coming off a 23-for-28 performance against the New York Jets that included at least two deliberate incompletions to avoid losses.
