Raiders QB Pryor confuses center, sets NFL record (GIF)

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor can flat out fly.

The evidence is right here in this GIF:


Pryor set an NFL record on that run – longest run by a quarterback – and set a franchise record for longest run from the line of scrimmage with the 93-yard scamper.

Oakland center Stefen Wisniewski was even fooled on the play.

“I heard the crowd roar and then I looked at D-Mac, and I thought it was weird for the crowd to be going nuts for a 6-yard run,” Wisniewski said, according to CSN Bay Area’s Scott Bair. “Then I looked up and saw Pryor all by himself headed for the end zone. I knew nobody was going to catch him.”

The Raiders ended up winning 21-18 over the Pittsburgh Steelers, even after a lackluster second half.

Oakland scored twice in the first quarter after the Pryor run and a Daren McFadden 7-yard jaunt.  McFadden punched it in again from 4 yards out before the half, and put the Raiders up 21-3 at the break.

Then, the offense went silent, but the defense held on.

Pryor ended up going 10-of-19 for 88 yards and threw two interceptions, but that 93 yarder proved to be the difference in the game.

Oakland moved to 3-4 with the win and take on the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans in the upcoming weeks.

They certainly have a shot to make it back over .500.
