It was the Terrelle Pryor show on Sunday afternoon with the Oakland Raiders opening the 2013 NFL season against the Indianapolis Colts. Although Andrew Luck had a solid performance and the Colts ultimately came away with their first win of the season, all eyes were on Pryor in Indianapolis with the second-year quarterback being virtually unstoppable under center for the Raiders.
Perhaps one of Pryor’s most impressive plays came at the expense of veteran safety Laron Landry. With Landry in hot pursuit of Pryor near the Colts’ sideline on 3rd and one, the up-and-coming quarterback put on a stiff-arm on Landry that threw him to the ground.
Pryor proceeded to trot out of bounds and go onto a record-breaking performance rushing for a franchise-best 112 yards on the day. The Raiders may have lost due to a game-clinching interception thrown by Pryor, but the 26-year-old proved he may be a rising star in the NFL and the next great Raiders quarterback.
