Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is one of the least sacked quarterback in the NFL yet one of the most pressured. The reason why he doesn't take many sacks is his brother David (Carr) was sacked and NFL record 76 times in 2002 and throughout his career with the then expansion Houston Texans.

Buffalo Bills at Oakland Raiders: 2014 Week 16 NFL Pick

Buffalo Bills (8-6) at Oakland Raiders (2-12) This line shifted from 4.5 to 6 over the past week with the Bills winning at home in upset fashion over the Packers.
