Derek Carr threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with an injured right leg , putting a serious damper on the Oakland Raiders’ 33-25 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. Oakland clinched its first playoff berth since 2002 last week and can win the AFC West and earn a first-round bye by winning next week in Denver or if Kansas City loses one of its final two games. The third-year quarterback has led a resurgence in Oakland with 28 TD passes and seven fourth-quarter comebacks this season.

If the Tennessee Titans make the playoffs, they won’t have quarterback Marcus Mariota. Mariota broke his right leg in a 38-17 loss at Jacksonville on Saturday, a crushing setback for a team that had so many things go right while winning three in a row and seven of 10 previously. With the Titans (8-7) trailing 25-10 late in the third quarter, Mariota was carted off the field with an air cast on his fractured fibula.
