Quarterback Terrelle Pryor proves that he is worth the starting role for the Oakland Raiders on Sunday night in Oakland, as Pryor led the Silver and Black to defeat AFC West rivals the San Diego Chargers.
Terrelle Pryor started out very strong against the Chargers, scoring two passing touchdowns in the first quarter. The first TD was a capitalization from a pic by Usama Young from the Chargers' first drive and Philip River’s first attempt to pass.
Pryor led the Raiders to a 17-0 lead in the half. However, in the second, things turned around and, the Raiders’ offense did not do much.
The only other scored that came from the offense in the second half was in the fourth quarter when Pryor led a time-consuming drive for Sebastian Janikowski to kick a three pointer and keep the Bolts from catching up.
The Chargers managed to score two TDs in the fourth and were only a TD away from tying the game. That was when Pryor drove close enough for the Polish Cannon, Janikowski, to kick a three-pointer.
In the end, Terrelle Pryor threw for 221 yards with two touchdowns. Pryor also had no pics but was sacked twice. It also seemed that Pryor was tripping and slipping all over the place while trying to scramble.
In the end, Pryor held off the Chargers, and the rumors of Josh Freeman coming to work with his old boss Greg Knapp, Oakland’s offensive coordinator, are over. Let the Vikings take Freeman, because the Raiders have Pryor.
