The Oakland Raiders are worried about Terrelle Pryor.
“It wasn’t something that we thought was going to be a big factor going into the game. But, obviously, it was a factor,” Allen told reporters, per the Bay Area News Group.
Something even more alarming has been Pryor’s play over the past month. The former Ohio State star has been a disaster in the last four games, throwing eight interceptions while finding the end zone once.
Overall, Pryor has thrown for 1,559 yards with a 58.9 completion percentage and only five touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He has also run for a team-leading 504 yards.
Lets be honest right off the bat, the Bengals had no business having a shot to win that game Sunday anyway. Their quarterback Andy Dalton appeared to be channeling Trent Dilfer during his Bucs years for most of the game. Their defense played well most of the day, but still gave up two touchdowns to one of the worst, most off-kilter offenses in the league right now. The only reason Bernard was even in position to have that epic brain fart was because the Ravens defensive backs thought it would be fun to play volleyball and set the football rather than spike it on the last play of the game. A.J. Green caught what was probably his easiest touchdown of his career.
And yet, there they were. Trying to convert a fourth-and-2 from the Ravens 33-yard line, Bernard caught a little swing pass to the right side of the line. Turns out that was probably not a good play call because Ravens safety James Ihedigbo was right in Bernard’s face as he caught Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike the Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping ball. The Bengals aren’t going to get the first down, which means it will probably be the Ravens ball around their own 35 or so, not really a big deal.
This is where the brain fart comes in.
