Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was back in the Bay Area on Sunday morning nursing illness and a sprained knee, watching backup Matt McGloin lead his team to victory.
Must’ve been a pretty sight. Until reality set in.
McGloin was so good during a 28-23 win over the Houston Texans that undrafted rookie might’ve taken Pryor’s job.
While head coach Dennis Allen wouldn’t say whether he did or not, there’s no doubt the Raiders have a quarterback controversy on their hands.
“Here’s what I’m going to do; I’m going to enjoy this win,” Allen said. “Then we’ll go back and we’ll evaluate. Matt definitely did a very good job today.”
The undrafted rookie from Penn State was 18-of-32 passing for 197 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 105.9 quarterback rating in his first NFL start. He likely won't be better than a QB2 option if he indeed gets more playing time going forward. It's a tough matchup Week 12 against the Titans.
