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.
