The Oakland Raiders, behind Terrelle Pryor's opening 93-yard touchdown run which set an NFL and franchise record, beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-18 on Sunday.

Pryor took all of 18 seconds to score a 93-yard touchdown run -- breaking a franchise record for a player which was previously set by Bo Jackson (92 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in 1989) and an NFL record for the longest by a quarterback which was previously held by the Pittsburgh Steelers' Kordell Stewart (80 yards in 1996), per InsideBayArea.com's Jerry McDonald. 

Pryor said he was surprised at how open he got. 

"I was very surprised, because it's never open like that. Very surprised. But with the game plan, the way they put things together, it doesn't surprise me that sometimes it may happen like that."

For the game, Pryor finished with 194 all-purpose yards on top of the astonishing 106 rushing yards he had. He also had two interceptions. 

After Pryor's electrifying opening drive, Raiders halfback Darren McFadden added touchdown runs of  seven and four yards before the Steelers settled for a 47-yard Shaun Suisham field goal before the half. 

Suisham then went on to miss two field goals from 34 and 32 yards out, which would prove to be costly. Pittsburgh tried to make a game out of it after Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders scored on a nine-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger after a Jacoby Ford fumble.

The Steelers managed to trim the deficit to three at 21-18 after Le'Veon Bell found the end zone with 1:24 remaining. However, the Raiders recovered the onside kick.

In addition to Suisham's two missed field goals, Roethlisberger also threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter alone. The latter gave credit to the opposition once the game's final whistle was blown.

"They just beat us. Yeah, it hurts. We felt like we were doing some good things and that we were getting better. We just weren't there, especially in all phases -- we didn't throw the ball well enough, we didn't block well enough, we didn't catch well enough, we just weren't good enough." 

Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver was caught by sideline cameras making an obscene gesture at an official after Oakland cornerback Mike Jenkins broke up a pass for La'Veon Bell.

According to McDonald, Tarver "protested a penalty for a hit on a defenseles receiver." A flag was initially thrown but it was picked up after another official ruled that there was no penalty on the play.  

Tarver, who apologized for his actions in a team statement, will be disciplined internally, per Raiders owner Mark Davis. 

With the victory, the Raiders upped their record to 3-4 while the Steelers, who failed to establish a three-game winning streak after starting 0-4, fell to 2-5.

The New York Jets find themselves in an unfavorable spot as the 2014 NFL season nears the official midway point. At 1-6, the Jets have been virtually eliminated from realistic playoff contention. Their struggles have been ugly at times, but the Jets have also been victimized by the scheduling gods. The Green and White have escaped the murderer's row portion of their schedule, albeit without a win, and now turn their attention to the playoff-hungry B ...

The real intervention Tiger Woods needs right now

Oct 16 2014 3:44pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

If you haven’t seen Golf Digest’s retrospective on Tiger Woods’ regrettable history with denim, you need to do that. But be prepared for a dose of Dad Jeans that would put President Obama to shame. The Golf Digest piece, and the horrors you’ll see below, have prompted me to take drastic measures. Long before he was engaging in the bad behavior that led to his divorce and stint in therapy for one type of addiction, he displayed dangerous signs of another serious problem: an addiction to terribl ...

The Dallas Cowboys proved they're a legitimate contender in the NFC, while the Denver Broncos continued their dominance against everyone not named the Seattle Seahawks. The Denver Broncos have assumed the top spot in the power rankings, thanks to the Seattle Seahawks' loss at home Sunday.

Chargers Attempt Fake Punt on 4th-and-35 Against Raiders...and Fail

Oct 12 2014 5:16pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Diego Chargers found themselves in a tough spot midway through the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. They tried to get out of it by using the element of surprise, but things didn't go as they would have hoped. After a penalty took a field goal off the board and pushed the team back 10 yards, San Diego faced a 4th-and-35 from the Oakland 46-yard line. A punt may not have done much in terms of field position, so the Chargers called for a fake punt. It d ...
