The player who has exceed expectations this year is Terrelle Pryor. Coming out of college everyone thought that Pryor would have a short lived and unexceptional career in the NFL. That all changed when he won the starting QB job for the Oakland Raiders late in the preseason over Matt Flynn. In his first two games of the season, Pyror went 1-1. He nearly pulled off the upset against the Colts but unfortunately, threw a late interception to lose the game.
What makes Terrelle Pryor so special is that he is a dual threat. In two games, Pryor is already ahead of Oakland's 2012 season passing total with 343 yards. He has also rushed for over 262 yards. In the first two games, Pryor has shown that he can throw the ball and use his legs to scramble to avoid trouble.
This week, it will be interesting to see what the Denver Bronco's game plan is for Terrelle Pryor. Pryor has the stage set to pull off what would be the biggest upset of the season. If Pryor succeeds against the Broncos, it will put the Broncos at 2-1. It will be an exciting game on Sunday and I can't wait to see what happens.
