The Oakland Raiders traded to get Matt Flynn this offseason to be their starting quarterback, and that will finally take place this Sunday against the Washington Redskins, as Terrelle Pryor will likely be a no-go after suffering a concussion during Monday night’s loss to the Denver Broncos:

The Raiders are 1-3 under Pryor dating back to last season, but have shown a lot more fight than with anyone else who’s been under center. He has thrown 4 touchdowns to 3 interceptions and also ran for a touchdown in the 2012 season finale.
Matt Flynn is 1-1 in his two career starts with the Green Bay Packers in 2010 and 2011. He had 9 touchdowns to 4 interceptions in those two games.
He did well in his brief appearance on Monday night after Pryor was knocked out in the fourth quarter. That’s when Flynn entered the game after a Raiders fumble recovery and completed a 19-yard pass to fullback Marcel Reece to the 1-yard line.
