The Oakland Raiders have announced they will start rookie QB Matt McGloin for the second consecutive week.

Head coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday that McGloin would be under center for the team’s upcoming game against the Tennessee Titans. The rookie had a strong showing in the Raiders’ win over the Texans, throwing for three touchdowns with no interceptions while completing 18 of 32 attempts.

McGloin stepped into the starter’s role after Terrelle Pryor was sidelined with a knee injury he suffered against the Eagles earlier this month. Pryor was able to start the following week against the Giants but was ruled out shortly before Oakland took on Houston.

Tyler Wilaon would get his chance if Pryor can't go and McGloin gets hurt, as long as Wilson is activated for the game he would be 3rd on the depth chart.

why do they not give Tyler Wilson a chance?
