How else to describe the explosive offensive play, the Raiders first of the game, that shocked the Pittsburgh Steelers and sent the Oakland Coliseum into a jubilant ovation that didn't seem to settle until half-time.
Let's face it, if Wikipedia has it listed on its informational website, then it happened right?
In Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pryor opened the game with a 93-yard run for touchdown, the longest in NFL history for a quarterback. It was also the longest run of any player in Raiders history. The previous record for Oakland was a 92-yarder set by Bo Jackson
on 11/5/1989. Pryor finished with 9 carries for 106 yards and finished
10 of 19 passing for just 88 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Pittsburgh Steelers Defender: “Even if you’re excited about stopping McFadden, you have to understand the beast that’s playing quarterback,” Clark said. “Once a guy like him gets a in front of the whole defense, he’s a legit 4.4 (speed in 40-yard dash). It just looks slow because he’s 6-6 but he was moving.”
The Oakland Raiders have plenty of work to do if they want to contend for titles, but yesterday's win and T-Pain's play are proff that these are not our "too painful to watch" Raiders of recent seasons past. Oh no, these Raiders are exciting to watch and feverish for a win. And the Defense is downright nasty. Don't believe me, just ask Steelers QB Big Ben Roethlisberger, who survived 5 Raiders sacks yesterday. Sorry Ben, nothing personal, just bizzzznessss!
