Pryor's record run sparks Raiders
OAKLAND, Calif. — Terrelle Pryor took the first snap of the game, put the ball in Darren McFadden's belly and saw linebacker LaMarr Woodley crash down.
Then the Raiders quarterback did what he does best, sprinting 93 yards for a record-setting run. Pryor scored on the longest TD run ever by a quarterback and Oakland hung on to top Pittsburgh.
"I was very surprised, because it's never open like that," Pryor said. "Very surprised. But with the game plan, the way they put things together, it doesn't surprise me that sometimes it may happen like that."
The run broke a record owned by a Steeler: an 80-yarder by Kordell Stewart against Carolina in 1996.
McFadden added two TD runs and the defense did the rest for the Raiders, who had lost their previous 10 games out of the bye.
The Steelers got within a field goal on Le'Veon Bell's 2-yard TD run and a two-point conversion, but Ben Roethlisberger also threw two interceptions in the fourth.
