Los Angeles Chargers star pass rusher Joey Bosa reveled why the Chargers have so much success against Las Vegas Raiders and quarterback Derek Carr on Monday Night.
Bosa told reporters that Carr really gets shook after taking a few hits:
“We knew once we hit him a few times, he really gets shook. And you saw on [Christian Covington’s] sack, he was pretty much curling into a ball before we even got back there. Great dude, great player … but we know once you get pressure on him, he kind of shuts down.”
The Chargers sacked Carr four times, forced him to fumble once and picked him off once during the team’s 28-14 victory.
The Chargers got off to a fast start, leading 21-0 at halftime but Carr then orchestrated a comeback, as the Raiders scored 14 unanswered points to cut the lead to 21-14.
The Raiders had an opportunity to drive for the tying score in the fourth quarter, but as Bosa mentioned, a Covington sack halted the drive.
Carr did appear to surrender before Covington got to him, resulting in a huge stop for the Chargers on 3rd-and-3. Vegas then missed a 52-yard field goal, and the Chargers took advantage by scoring a touchdown and putting the game out of reach.
