Last week’s 33-25 win against Indianapolis was bittersweet for Oakland. Yes, the team won its 12th game of the season to remain on top of the AFC West, but it came at a high cost.   Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr broke his fibula in the fourth quarter and is unlikely to play again this season.
