Jeannette’s Terrelle Pryor scored on a team-record 93-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game Sunday, and the Raiders (3-4) held on for a 21-18 home victory over the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5).
Darren McFadden scored on a pair of touchdown runs as the Raiders opened up a 21-3 lead. Both of the Steelers’ touchdowns were recorded in the fourth quarter — on a 9-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Emmanuel Sanders and a 2-yard run by Le’Veon Bell.
Pittsburgh’s Shaun Suisham missed on two of his three field goal attempts — his first two unsuccessful kicks of the season. Roethlisberger and Pryor both were intercepted twice.
The Steelers recorded a net rushing total of only 35 yards, while Pryor tallied 106 yards on the ground and just 88 through the air.
Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown recorded nine catches for 82 yards, and Sanders had seven receptions for 88 yards. Roethlisberger completed 29-of-45 passes for 275 yards. Pryor went 10-for-19.
Next, Sunday the Steelers travel to New England to face the Patriots (6-2).
