Offense:With Pryor out, the Raiders were in for a long day. Even the strongest Matt Flynn supporters did their best disappearing act after Flynn struggled so much. He holds onto the ball way too long and stared down his receivers all day. Matt Flynn is not a starting NFL quarterback. The offensive line struggled to block with Flynn at quarterback. They gave up seven sacks...
The Chicago Bears (3-1) are looking to improve their situation at the punter position following a rough performance by Adam Podlesh in the team’s 40-32 loss to the Detroit Lions (3-1).
