The Washington Redskins absolutely hammered the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, holding Derek Carr to arguably his worst game as a professional.

The Raiders' star quarterback, who threw for only 118 yards and two interceptions, didn't mince words after the humiliating setback.

"Man, we just got our butt kicked. ... This isn't alarming, but we did get punched in the mouth," Carr said, per Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Raiders entered the game ranked second in the league in scoring offense, averaging 35 points per contest, but were held in check the entire night. While the blame could certainly be passed around, Carr jumped to the forefront to shoulder the load.

"Go ahead and put it all on me. I promise I'll be all right," Carr told Gehlken.

When asked about going 0-for-11 on third down, he added: "That just sucked, there's no other word."

The Raiders have a week to figure out a fix to their offensive issues, as it won't get any easier against the vaunted pass defense of the Denver Broncos next on the schedule.
