Entering Sunday’s game against the league’s worst defense in the Washington Redskins, the Oakland Raiders and Terrelle Pryor looked poised to have big days and get the team’s second win of the year.

It looked as though Pryor was going to play and he and running back Darren McFadden were going to have a big day as the Raiders jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead, and looked ready to ride him to just their second win of the season.

But after Pryor was ruled-out with a concussion and McFadden suffered a hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for most of the game, backup quarterback Matt Flynn couldn’t sustain any offensive drives, and the Raiders dropped a 24-14 contest.

It looks as though the Raiders will at least be getting Pryor back this week:

    Those Broncos think they’re real smug don’t they? Beating us wasn’t enough so they had to knock our best players out so we could lose to the Redskins too. When we get rolling next year, it’s gonna be war, mark my words.

    it’s just too bad Terrelle Pryor has 10 chicken McNuggets around him.

    • RdrFusion

      No McNuggets next year. Promise. Go bury YOUR head somewhere! McNugget…

        Well kiss my Irish ass. Maybe you can accept mediocrity but I have completely had it. I’m tired of subpar players and the lack of passion from overblown fat cats. I’ve been following this team for over four decades and of the last 10 about 90 percent of the people associated with this organization have completely failed Raider Nation!
        Now maybe you get the comment.

          Then leave, moron…

          • KloverJane

            Moron would constitute a lack of intelligence. You’re obviously a lib. I don’t jump ship from the team I’ve put effort into. I’m calling out those players. Like D M and Run DMc, minus his hammy, this time. You cant have blind devotion to Raider Nation without facts.
