Terrelle Pryor sets Raiders single-game QB rushing record with 112 yards

Making his second career start, Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor came up just shy of pulling an upset over the Colts, who were double-digit favorites.

Down four points in the final minute of the game, the Raiders had a first-and-goal situation but a sack and interception by Pryor allowed the Colts to hang on for a 21-17 victory.

Completing 19-of-29 pass attempts, Pryor threw for 217 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. In addition, he rushed 13 times for 112 yards, which breaks the franchise's single-game rushing record by a quarterback previously held by Rich Gannon.

Due to his success running the ball, Pryor finished with 21 fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues and will have the ability to flirt with low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 numbers for the rest of the season due to his mobility.

Pryor, who is currently owned in only 10 percent of Yahoo! leagues, should be one of the most added fantasy quarterbacks heading into Week 2.
