Best: Terrelle Pryor proves that he is no joke Next » 9 of 11 « Prev
Not many people expected the Oakland Raiders to have a good season, and sitting at 2-3, it seems that the Raiders aren't worth talking about. However, Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is definitely giving Raiders fans something to smile about.

The Raiders played the San Diego Chargers late Sunday night, a game in which the Chargers were favored to win. Pryor, however, had other plans. He completed 18 of 23 passes for 221 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions, leading the Raiders to a 27-17 upset over San Diego.

Since the victory, the Raiders have released quarterback Matt Flynn, who was originally believed to be the starter for Oakland this season. With Flynn's release, it is clear that the Raiders are committing to Pryor as the quarterback going forward. With Pryor under center, the Raiders will always have a chance.
