The NFL announced Friday that Raiders undrafted rookie Matt McGloin has been named the "NFL Rookie of the Week" for his performance last week against the Houston Texans.
McGloin made his first career start last week and impressed, throwing for 197 yards and three touchdowns while leading the Raiders to a 28-23 victory.
McGloin's performance, along with Terrelle Pryor's knee injury, has given him the opportunity to start this week against the Tennessee Titans. The rookie out of Penn State beat out four other nominees in an online vote by fans.
