Facing a swarming Kansas City Chiefs defense, Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor struggled mightily Sunday, throwing three interceptions to go with only one touchdown as the Raiders lost 24-7. The quarterback threw for 216 yards and rushed for another 60 to lead the team, but was also sacked ten times for 67 yards.
Pryor connected with wide receiver Denarius Moore on a 39-yard touchdown for the game's first score, but those were the only points Oakland managed in the game. Pryor's 216 pass yards were his second lowest of the season, and the interceptions were his first since Week 1.
Fantasy impact: Facing a defense like Kansas City's is tough on any quarterback, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too devastated that he struggled in this game. He still led the Raiders in rushing yards, and it is starting to look like Pryor and Moore have a strong connection that could be good for both of them.
Week 7 is the Raiders' bye week. After that, they face three consecutive defenses - Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and the New York Giants - that shouldn't strike fear in the heart of fantasy owners. He's worth a look going forward.
