Carr on Sunday threw two interceptions, including a costly one that bounced of Marshawn Lynch’s finger tips at the Los Angeles Chargers’ 25-yard line with 8:15 remaining in the third quarter.
The Chargers won 17-16, sending the Raiders to their fourth straight loss.
“I’m frustrated,” said Carr, who completed 21 of 30 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown. “I know how to work, I know how to study, I know how to play this game. It really comes down to people locking down on every little detail on this offense. I’m not going to elaborate on what that is, but that’s the problem. That’s why it’s frustrating. That’s why it’s kind of like we’re better than that.”
The Raiders are 2-4 after a 2-0 start. Looking at the schedule, can it get any better? Maybe, maybe not.
The next five games: versus Kansas City (Thursday), at Buffalo (Oct. 29), at Miami (Nov. 5), versus New England (Nov. 19) and versus Denver (Nov. 26).
Still, Carr kept pinpointing the offense struggles, including an interception in the first quarter when he overthrew Michael Crabtree at the Raiders’ 41-yard line.
The second interception in Chargers territory that left Carr frustrated because of the lack of points.
In the past four games, the Raiders have scored only 54 points after opening the season with 71 points combined in wins against the Titans and Jets.
I’m not going to lie to you. I’m really frustrated.

“Details,” Carr said. “That’s the frustrating thing. I’m not going to lie to you. I’m really frustrated. We worked way too hard for that stuff to happen. That’s an easy catch, but that’s an easy play if I do the right thing, the players do the right thing. It was a turnover and that should have never happened. We gave them two gifts. We’re working hard, but we have to lock into the details.”
