Terrelle Pryor in for Matt McGloin
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In an effort to jump-start their offense, the Oakland Raiders replaced quarterback Matt McGloin with Terrelle Pryor late in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Oakland, which specifically is looking to improve its running game, faced a 10-0 deficit when it switched from McGloin to the more mobile Pryor.
McGloin, however, came back into the game in the second quarter.
Pryor last played on Nov. 10, here at MetLife Stadium, against the New York Giants, before losing his job to McGloin thanks in equal part to injury (a sprained right knee) and ineffectiveness (he has thrown eight interceptions since his last touchdown pass).
McGloin was three of four passing for 28 yards before giving way to Pryor.
