Matt McGloin struggling in second start

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

McGloin hasn't been able to lead his team into the endzone and his Raiders trail the Titans early in the third quarter.

Matt McGloin's second NFL start hasn't begun the way he probably wanted it to. The undrafted rookie quarterback completed just eight of his 17 pass attempts through the first two quarters of the Oakland Raiders game against the Tennessee Titans.

The Raiders trail 13-9 early in the third quarter.

McGloin earned his second start after throwing three touchdowns in a win over the Houston Texans in Week 11. He's struggled with his accuracy so far against the Titans, though, and has been unable to guide his team into the endzone.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has played better for the Titans, going 16-of-23 for 212 yards. He is filling in for Jake Locker, who went down with a season-ending injury two weeks ago. Fitzpatrick hit Justin Hunter with a 53-yard touchdown pass to begin the third quarter to push the Titans out in front.

The Raiders have leaned largely on the running game. Starting running back Rashad Jennings has rushed for 55 yards on ten carries.
