Terrelle Pryor: 'I Played Like Dog Crap'

There are many ways Oakland Raiders fans would describe Monday night's play of their team and third-string quarterback Terrelle Pryor -- none of them are good -- but probably the best description of the performance during the 3-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys came from the man himself.

"I'm angry at myself," Pryor said. "I thought everybody else on the team played great. I just think I played like dog crap. So I'm mad about that, about how I played. ... I will be better on Friday."

Pryor, who saw action in the fourth quarter and finished 8-for-15 with 50-passing yards, was playing for the first time in almost two seasons. Teammate Matt Lienhart said the Ohio State alum was being a bit harsh on himself.

"He has to realize that it's not going to happen overnight," No. 2 quarterback Matt Leinart said. "He can make plays, and he's working hard."

Pryor and the Raiders will get a chance to rebound on Friday, when they play at the Arizona Cardinals.

Cowboys Vs. Raiders Final Score: Dallas Takes Exhibition Opener 3-0

The preseason opener between the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders is in the books. Dallas came away with a 3-0 win at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Monday.

The only scoring of the game came from Dan Bailey's 33-yard field goal on Dallas' first drive of the third quarter.

The highlight? Probably the announcers losing their grip on sanity.

Carson Palmer and Tony Romo, as expected, didn't see too much action. Both completed three of six passes, with Romo throwing for 30 yards and Palmer 33.

After throwing an interception early, the Raiders replaced Palmer with Matt Leinart, who threw 11-for-17 for 98 yards. He was then replaced by Terrelle Pryor, who would finish with 50 yards on eight completions out of 15 attempts.

Dallas had one first down in 11 plays with Romo on the field. After he was taken out, Kyle Orton managed 87 yards on 7-for-12 passing and third-string Cowboys QB Stephen McGee threw 5-for-9 for 48 yards.

The Raiders' Darren McFadden carried the ball twice for 20 yards and had an 18-yard reception in the first quarter.

Raiders, Cowboys Cause Broadcasters To Lose Grip On Sanity

The Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders are playing their preseason opener on Monday night at the O.co Coliseum. After the first half, the teams are locked in a beyond-thrilling 0-0 tie. Jon Gruden and Mike Tirico are broadcasting the game for ESPN and are trapped in the announce booth with nowhere to go.

Ever wonder how long it takes for the clutches of preseason football madness to ensnare your mind? About 30 minutes, apparently.
