WATCH: Derek Carr shows off Superman skills tumbling over would-be defender

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr showed off some serious athleticism and guts Sunday in his game against the New Orleans Saints.

After escaping a rush, the third-year passer darted towards the first-down marker down the left sideline. A defender was in his way, yet rather than run out of bounds he simply leaped over the would-be defender, leaving him grasping at air.

Now, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie might not like to see his franchise passer taking risks like that, but we applaud his moxie.

The Raiders areĀ knotted up with the Saints, 10-10.
