Carr completed 19 of his 31 passes for 118 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. That's a recipe for success.

The Redskins are led by quarterback Kirk Cousins and head coach Jay Gruden.

Protests by players on many different National Football League teams have already begun with the Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars game from Wembley Stadium in London, and will culminate on Sunday with the Raiders game at Washington tonight. The Oakland offensive line will be demonstrating that solidarity in another way on Sunday night just prior to its game against Washington.

Rookie Samaje Perine, who gained 67 yards on 21 carries after Kelley left last week's game against the Los Angeles Rams, was expected to start at running back. The Raiders' only previous visit to Landover was a 16-13 Oakland win on November 20, 2005. The Bengals (0-2), Chiefs (0-3), Falcons (0-2) and Steelers (0-2) are the only other teams Washington's hasn't defeated at least once at its current home.
