When you beat Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen and every quarterback who has ever played in the NFL on one run, you've done some good things.
Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor set a couple of big marks on the first play from scrimmage against Pittsburgh.
Pryor ran the read option and kept the ball around right tackle. And his speed took over.
Pryor sped right past all of Pittsburgh's defensive backs into the open field, and it was all over. He's one of the most athletic quarterbacks in the NFL, and he went all 93 yards for a touchdown.
That set the Raiders team record for longest run, beating Bo Jackson's 92-yard run against Cincinnati in 1989. It's also the longest run for a quarterback in the modern era of NFL history, and one that seems likely to stand for a long time. The old record was Kordell Stewart's 80-yard run in 1996.
Pryor has been one of the breakout stars of the NFL this year, and has a record-setting highlight to add to his big season.
