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.
BEST OF MAXIM
Week 1 of the highly-anticipated 2013 NFL regular season is in the books. As expected, we witnessed just about everything but the kitchen sink—from hard-nosed defensive snoozefests like the Seattle Seahawks’ 12-7 road win over the Carolina Panthers to exciting thrillers that left fans on edge of their seats like the San Francisco 49ers‘ 34-28 victory over the Green Bay Packers...
No one had any idea how Terrelle Pryor would play in the Raiders opener against the Colts today.

We all know the game is changing. It is becoming a position of speed and agilty rather than just a gun slinger mentality at the quarterback position. Well this week in the NFL a total of 9 black quarterbacks will start. Here is a list: EJ Manuel – Bills Colin Kaepernick – Niners Russell Wilson […]
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.
All week, the speculation was that Pryor would get the nod over Matt Flynn, who has a sore elbow on his throwing arm. The thought also was that with Pryor being more mobile, that would work...
Everyone doubts Terrelle Pryor can help the Raiders this season, and I think a lot of people have happily gone along with this assessment, because haha, the Raiders, amirite? Pryor won the starting job from Matt Flynn this preseason, but around the league, he hasn’t received many plaudits and hasn’t mustered much confidence.
But why? What’s the reason nobody thinks Pryor is...
Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor showed exactly why he won the starting job during his debut against the Indianapolis Colts. Pryor finished 19/29 for 217 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions while adding 112 yards on the ground on 13 carries. During this run he dove for the first down and leveled this old man that was a part of the chain gang on the sidelines...
Terrelle Pryor threw for 217 yards, one touchdown and broke a franchise record Sunday. That wasn't good enough for Oakland's new quarterback.
After watching Andrew Luck scramble 19 yards for the go-ahead score with 5:20 to go, Pryor made two costly mistakes on the Raiders' final series. Oakland wound up losing 21-17 at Indianapolis.
''I'm disappointed in...
Terrelle Pryor may have finally arrived. Yes Pryor still struggles to read defenses, and makes most of his plays with his legs, but Pryor is a long way from the guy he was when he was banished by Ohio State, and selected in the supplemental draft. Pryor has come a long way and has Al Davis to thank. According to Peter King and TheMMQB, Pryor says “he owes Davis, and wants to...
The Oakland Raiders got one of their two biggest offensive playmakers back at practice.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice Wednesday and was working with the first team after missing last week's game with a concussion, while running back Darren McFadden is still sidelined by a hamstring injury that prevented him from finishing last week's game.
This is a game that could get real ugly real fast, or it could be one of those surprises for the start of the NFL season.I am not sure yet where I stand on it, but it’s football and it’s Sunday and, well, two former greats of the 1970s beating on each other cannot be that bad.But, oh yes it can be.Enter the world of Andrew Luck. The second-year player who did everything asked...
It was an exciting opening week for the NFL and we fantasy baller’s are either twerking in celebration or connecting the garden hose to the Tauraus’ tailpipe. It’s probably a little early in the season to do either. Besides, this could happen when the twerk goes wrong. There were plenty of surprises opening Sunday. There were three safties in the first 20 minutes, Jacksonville...
Let’s start with this: six of Week’1 top 10 fantasy defenses were owned in less than 20 percent of Yahoo! Leagues.
Let that wash over you. And while you’re at it, throw that inconvenient fact in the faces of anyone who insists their seventh round selection of the Seattle Seahawks defense was the correct one.
