While Manning will be going for the all-time passing-yards mark — he needs 266 to break Drew Brees' record — Pryor will be going for putting some more good play on tape. Although Pryor showed some intrigue early in the season, he was derailed by a concussion suffered in the first Broncos game and struggled mostly thereafter.
McGloin, too, has come down to earth with his play. After taking over the starting role in Week 11, he threw for three touchdown passes in a win over the Houston Texas. But McGloin has thrown eight interceptions the past five games, all of them Raiders losses.
Pryor only has five touchdown passes and 11 interceptions on the season and looked to be a more effective runner. He'll have a chance to show he can throw the ball against a Broncos defense that just lost Von Miller for the season.
Perhaps it can help his quest to be the Raiders' starter next season, but the coaching staff could be in trouble and the Raiders could end up with a top-five draft pick that could be used on a quarterback.
