  Michael Hickey/Getty Images North America What a opening week it has been for Oakland Raiders and quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The Raiders were heavy underdogs on the road against the Indianapolis Colts but managed to play a close game. In addition Pryor made more then a few highlight reels with some of his moves from Sunday. There was the stiff arm to Laron Landry… … and then there was the time he was tripped up out of bounds and took out a member of the chain gang. For those who like stats, Pryor was 19-of-2 for 217 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. He added 112 yards rushing on 13 runs. Of course all that was for naught after Colts quarterback Andrew Luck ran the ball into the endzone himself the give the Colts the lead – and ultimately the win – with 5:20 left in the game.

Pryor gets starting nod for Raiders

Oakland coach Dennis Allen started Terrelle Pryor at quarterback Sunday at Indianapolis. Allen tried to keep his decision a secret right up until game time. But the move was hardly a surprise.
