There hasn't been much for Oakland Raider fans to cheer for in recent weeks and while the Raiders lost for the seventh time in the past eight games on Sunday, there were at least a few small bright spots.
One of the bright spots came in the form of Terrelle Pryor who continues to see more time on offense. The Raiders have begun working Pryor into the offense and after seeing three snaps last week, Pryor was a bit more involved against the Panthers. As Levi Damien of Silver and Black Pride noted, Pryor contributed the first positive plays of his career.
Pryor caught a pass for 22 yards, rushed once for two yards and completed his only pass for five yards. All three plays were firsts in his NFL career. Pryor played just three snaps against Kansas City, but as Damien said, his role could continue to expand making Pryor watch the highlight of the week for Raiders' fans.
But it was a step up from his three plays last week as the team continues to try and get at least a bit of a look at him. We'll see if those looks go up again next week in the season finale in San Diego.
If Pryor does play Sunday, maybe he can help the Raiders break this streak.
The Raiders have now not scored a touchdown in two straight games. Their last touchdown came with 5:47 remaining in the week 14 loss to the Broncos.
