Terrelle Pryor, Raiders Have Tough Day

If you started the Kansas City Chiefs defense yesterday in your fantasy football league, you are definitely pleased with their effort Sunday. The Chiefs were able to beat the Raiders 24-7 behind a stellar defensive effort. The Chiefs were able to sack Pryor ten times, just two shy of the NFL record (12) held by five teams. More amazingly, the Chiefs equaled their output of the entire 2008 season with their 10 sacks Sunday. Part of the struggles on the Raiders offensive line was due in large part to the injuries sustained by Andre Gurode and  Tony Pashos. As a result, Pryor spent most of the day running for his life and forcing difficult passes. Pryor threw three interceptions in the game (2 in the final 2 minutes) including this pick-6 to Hamza Abdullah.


After the game, Pryor quite literally took complete blame for the loss.

I lost this game for us. Period.

The Raiders will now head into their bye week at 2-4, looking up at the only two undefeated teams in the NFL. The victory for Kansas City snapped their six-game losing streak against the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium. As the schedule currently sits, the Raiders do not play a team win a winning record until December, so it will be interesting to see if the Raiders can turn the season around following their bye week.
