The Battle of the Bay

by Abigail Martin

The Oakland Raiders battled the San Francisco 49ers in December in what was no doubt one of the most, if not the most, watched NFL game of the season for Central California football fans.

Fans at the Coliseum cheered as Oakland quarterback Derek Carr fought his way to his second NFL career win. Carr’s near-iconic status in the Central Valley after his tenure at Fresno State only increased interest in the game, as football fans in the Valley tend to be either 49er faithful fans or members of the Raider Nation.

The Raiders upset the 49ers, 24-13. In the best performance of his rookie season, Carr threw 254 yards and completed 22 of 28 passes, outplaying San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick threw 174 yards and completed 18 of 33 passes, with two interceptions and five sacks.

“There’s going to be bumps in the road here and there, and there always will be – that’s just the craziness of this game,” Carr said in a postgame interview with the NFL Network. “I just work my tail off and whatever the result is, I know I gave it everything I have.”
