NFL side no closer to deciding who is their on-field leader for the upcoming season.
Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen admits he has plenty to think about after watching his side lose 34-26 to the Chicago Bears in week three of the NFL preseason.
With most tipping Matt Flynn to be the starting quarterback for the Raiders in game one, his performance against the Bears did not do his chances any favors.
Flynn threw two interceptions in just six attempts before being hooked from the game by Allen, with Terrelle Pryor.
In a stunning cameo off the bench, Pryor led a late field-goal drive in the first half before before setting up two touchdowns to finish with 7-9 for 93 yards passing to go with 37 yards rushing as he helped his side score 20 points from five drives.
“I think obviously we have to look at it. I think when you look at it I don’t think Matt (Flynn) played well in this game,” Allen said.
“Obviously, I thought Terrelle [Pryor] came in and gave us a spark. I thought he played well in the game. I think that’s something that we have to go and look at it.”
if Pryor was to get the nod for the starting place it would only be the second time he has led the side on the field in the first quarter, with the other chance coming in last year’s final game of the season against the San Diego Chargers.
