Oakland Raiders: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31

Record: 1-3

If it wasn’t already clear, Matt Flynn’s performance against the Redskins proves the Raiders made the correct choice going with Terrelle Pryor over Flynn. It isn’t saying a ton, but Pryor is already one of the top-5 players on this roster, while Flynn looked like a quarterback who deserved to go in the 7th round back in 2008, leading the Raiders to a pathetic 14 points at home against an awful Washington defense. The Raiders should have a top-5 pick this season, but they shouldn’t go quarterback. Pryor deserves another chance going into the contract year of his rookie deal and the Raiders have plenty of other needs. Jadeveon Clowney would look awfully nice on that defensive line, assuming they can get him.
