As reported, the Raiders lost to the Bears on Friday night in Oakland at the O.co with a final score of 34-26. Again, the Raiders started a game in which they failed to put up points in the first quarter.
During the week, quarterback Matt Flynn had stated that he was feeling pretty positive with the Oakland Raiders. However, on the field, on Friday night, Flynn and the starters were pummeled 17-0 in the first quarter.
The Raiders could not convert a third down, and Flynn threw two picks and had a fumble. Also, the Raiders defense did not stop any of the Bears’ drives. Each drive by the Bears lead to a score.
The Raiders ended the half with three points thanks to a Sebastian Janikowski 58 yard kick, which was an impressive one!
In the third, Terrelle Pryor came out and lit the stadium with his impressive scrambling skills, which got him a nice rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown. His passing started a bit shaky—in the second quarter, he was picked in his second attempt at passing.
Pryor, in the end, looked way more impressive than supposedly starting quarterback Matt Flynn, despite the fact that Pryor’s passing was not at 100%. Still, Flynn only completed 19 yards while Pryor got 93 yards.
Matthew McGloin finished the game and got himself a touchdown. Also, he completed the most yards with 128. However, he was picked twice.
The other good notes about this game for the Oakland Raiders were the passing touchdowns—both were made by rookies. The first came via tight end Nick Kasa and the second came from running back Jamize Olewale.
Another good note for the Raiders was first-round-pick DJ Hayden getting playing time and doing just fine for the Silver-and-Black.
The cornerback got three tackles. Still, the Oakland Raiders need work with the secondary, as it did not look good in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears.
