Just how good is 8 touchdowns after five games?  Let’s compare it to some of the veterans on the list.

Russell Wilson had 5 touchdowns in his first five games, Big Ben who led his team to the playoffs his rookie year had 5 touchdowns and Peyton Manning only had 4 back in 1998.

This does not mean that Derek Carr is going to be a great quarterback, but it is promising. Especially, when you are looking for a new head coach…….Just saying!
