Rio was also asked about Carr's development as the Raiders started out 12-3 before the quarterback was injured.

“Well, it’s been tremendous for us,” Del Rio said. “I think finding that trigger man is so huge for you and one of the things that we’ve done is we’ve played to the talent that he does have. So some of the things that he did in college, we’ve integrated into the offense and how we approach it."
