Pryor, Flynn competing for Raiders starter QB role
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Terrelle Pryor will likely get some work running the Oakland Raiders' first-team offense in practice this week following an impressive preseason performance.
Whether he can win the starting quarterback job remains to be seen.
Coach Dennis Allen said Saturday the quarterback competition remains open one day after Pryor completely outplayed Matt Flynn in a 34-26 exhibition loss to the Chicago Bears.
Allen has said the main criteria for picking the starter will be who gives the offense a better chance to score. Right now that is decidedly in Pryor's favor after he led four scoring drives and provided a spark that energized the Oakland Coliseum crowd and created a quarterback controversy with two weeks left before the start of the regular season.
