Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor broke the Raiders' record for most rushing yards for a quarterback when he scrambled for 11 yards on the fourth drive of the day. The rush gave him 540 rushing yards on the season, breaking Gannon's record of 529 yards.
Pryor needed just three yards coming into the game to break the record, which former quarterback Rich Gannon previously held the record with 529 rushing yards set in 2000. The young quarterback tied the record on the first drive of the day for the Raiders when he scrambled for two yards on third down, giving him 529 rushing yards on the season.
Pryor has showed his athleticism when given the opportunity to use his feet, averaging 7.1 yards per carry in 10 starts this season.
Pryor broke the NFL record for longest touchdown run for a quarterback earlier this season when he scampered 93 yards for a touchdown on a read-action play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
There's no doubt that Pryor holds incredible athleticism, but it still remains to be seen if he is the Raiders' answer at quarterback.
Coming into the game, Pryor had a 57.7 completion percentage with five touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with 1,591 passing yards.
