Matt McGloin starting for Raiders on Thanksgiving

The Oakland Raiders were unable to come away with their Week 12 match up against the Tennessee Titans with the win, but they did see enough of undrafted free agent rookie quarterback Matt McGloin to determine he will be starting later this week.

Oakland takes on the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving day and McGloin is currently slated to be the team’s starter.

The news comes from Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.

With McGloin in the starting line up, the Raiders offense has been showing more signs of life. Now that he has three starts in a row, the team’s former starter, Terrelle Pryor, needs to be worried that he lost his starting job for good.

    I didn’t get to see the Texans game – but watching yesterday – I would say he gets the ball out faster then TP and more accurate. He gave the team a lead in the forth, the D just couldn’t hold it. – I say, Keep TP resting and let Matt play his way out of being the starter at this point.
