The Las Vegas Raiders are one of the best and most surprising stories to start the 2021 season. Las Vegas is currently 3-0 thanks to an impressive offense led by Derek Carr and an improved defense as well.

Several Raiders players have already won Player of the Week honors, but now one contributor has taken home Player of the Month honors.

AFC Player of the Month

Carr has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Month following his hot start. The 30-year-old QB has stood above the rest in a loaded conference, and the honor is well-deserved.

Carr has been the main cog to this early offensive juggernaut. He's racked up 1,203 passing yards and 6 TDs (with just 2 INTs) through the month of September. Carr's play has been key to this unit not falling off with star running back Josh Jacobs sidelined for the past two games.

The veteran QB will look to keep the good times rolling in October. Las Vegas heads into its Week 4 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers as 3-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
