Terrelle Pryor says Raiders will make the playoffs


The Oakland Raiders lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and  quarterback Terrelle Pryor took a lot of abuse. He was sacked 10 times by the Chiefs defense and spent the game running for his life and he ran 6 times for 60 yards. Pryor also threw three interceptions in the game.

Despite the Raiders dropping to 2-4, Pryor is remaining optimistic and bold with his predictions.

“We have to come together and start creating,” Pryor said, via CSN Bay Area. “We’ll be back; 2-4; we’ll get to the playoffs.

It would be for easy Pryor to blame his teammates and offensive line but he didn’t. He took responsibility for the loss and accepted the blame.

“This loss is on me. I’ll take it,” he said. “I’ll make sure we get better. As the leader of the offense, I have to make sure it happens. It will.”

It seems like a bold prediction for a team that is in one of the league’s tougher divisions. It is the only division with two undefeated teams: the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs.

They have games against the Steelers, Eagles, Giants, Texans, Titans, Cowboys, and Jets left on their schedule, aside from playing the three teams in their division again.

It is hard to picture them getting in the race for one of the two wild card spots, but not impossible. One of the wild card spots are going to whichever team doesn’t win the AFC, the Chiefs or Broncos. They’d have to go about 8-2 to end the season to make that happen.
