Derek Carr was caught on camera pleading for the play that would seal his victory in his first game for the New Orleans Saints.

Carr stood in front of a microphone during the game and was the subject of week one’s Inside the NFL.

As a result, all sideline conversations leading up to Shaheed’s big game were recorded by television cameras.

Carr was heard begging his offensive coordinators to give him a “better shot.”

Earlier in the contest, he had teamed with Shaheed for a touchdown in the third quarter.

After elaborating the piece, he turned to Shaheed and was heard saying, “Be ready if I give you a way to end this thing.”

“Hey, listen to me, Shid. [Just] damn run.”

New Orleans took control of the game from the very next moment and executed the plan flawlessly.

Shaheed had freed himself downfield and was able to intercept a perfect deep pass from Carr.

The completion allowed the Saints to finish the rest of the game and earn their first win of the season.

Impressed by Carr’s leadership, one fan said in response to the clip, “Saints to the Super Bowl.”

Another commented: “Drawn it beautifully!”

While a third added: “Derek Carr wasn’t the problem for the Raiders and they blew it by letting him go!”

And a fourth gasped: “There’s a lot to like here.”

Carr joined the Saints in the offseason after being released by the Las Vegas Raiders.

He signed a four-year deal worth $150 million with the organization and has teamed up with former Raiders head coach Dennis Allen.

Carr and the Saints travel to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte to take on the Carolina Panthers.

The 32-year-old will be hoping to reunite with second-year receiver Shaheed on primetime Monday Night Football.
