Terrelle Pryor to return to starting lineup

Terrelle Pryor will end his season where he began it — in the starting lineup for the Oakland Raiders.

After watching backup quarterback Matt McGloin start the past six games, Raiders coach Dennis Allen announced that Pryor would get the starting nod this week against the Broncos.

When McGloin took over in Week 11, it looked to be a smart move, with the rookie throwing for three touchdowns in a win over Houston. But in the past five weeks, all losses, McGloin has thrown eight interceptions.

But it's not like Pryor was much more effective. For the season Pryor's thrown 11 interceptions to five touchdowns.

It does make you wonder if the Raiders, which could wind up with a top-five pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
