Terrelle Pryor refuses to write off the postseason, however.
Following Oakland’s 24-7 loss to Kansas City on Sunday, the Raiders quarterback told Comcast SportsNet California that the team will make the playoffs.
“We have to come together and start creating,” Pryor said. “We‘ll be back; 2-4; we’ll get to the playoffs.”
Against the Chiefs, the 24-year-old was under constant pressure, which led to a 10-sack, three-interception outing. Although Pryor kept the club in the game into the fourth quarter, he assumed all responsibility for the Raiders’ fourth loss of the season (2-4).
“This loss is on me. I’ll take it,” Pryor said. “I’ll make sure we get better. As the leader of the offense, I have to make sure it happens. It will.”
After a tough defeat, you have to admire Pryor’s confidence, even if Oakland has little chance of qualifying for the playoffs. The Broncos or Chiefs are likely grab one of the AFC’s wildcard spots, and it’s a blue moon rarity that three teams from the same division are playing football in January.
