Terrelle Pryor off to fast start against Chargers


Those who have stayed up for Chargers-Raiders have seen quite a show thus far from Terrelle Pryor.

The Raiders’ starting quarterback, Pryor completed all eight of his first-quarter passes as Oakland built a 14-0 lead against San Diego. Pryor starred on a 13-play, 88-yard drive that ended in a two-yard TD pass to Denarius Moore late in the first quarter, throwing for 64 yards and rushing for 14 more.

Earlier, Pryor hit Rod Streater for a 44-yard touchdown to open the scoring.

With Pryor out of the lineup in Week Four, the Raiders’ offense struggled in a defeat to Washington. Now, Pryor is back, and the Raiders are rolling early against a division rival.

  1. Much to my chagrin, I think the raiders long search of a real QB may have ended for a while.

  2. Al Davis did a lot more good for the NFL than people realize. First black coach was hired by Davis (how the Rooney rules isn’t named after Davis is confusing) and he was instrumental is merging the AFL and NFL. I hope Pryor works out because he will forever be linked to Davis as one of his last moves.

  3. Good use of the supplemental draft by the Raiders.

    Pryor looks like he might have what it takes. After his rookie deal is over he’ll be back to getting paid as much as at Ohio State!

  4. They need to give this kid the big bucks already. The more i see Pryor play, the more I’m sure that he’s THE GUY. And Oakland needs That Guy more than they’re willing to admit.

  5. Stayed up for the game ? Think of us poor UK Raider fans, the game started at 4.30am so we’ve all set our alarms to watch the game.

    Thank god it was a great result. Pryor shows a lot of promise, teams were keeping him in the pocket after his week 1 scrambling display, hes doing surprisingly well in the pocket (and still with his scrambling plays keeping drives alive with short passes). If Flynn started last night it would have been a loss for sure

    There ‘might’ be a bright future for the Raiders, early days yet but here we have a 24 year old QB starting his first full season and impressing a lot of people. Just hope it continues
