OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Terelle Pryor threw for two touchdowns and the Oakland Raiders took a 14-0 lead over the San Diego Chargers in the first quarter Sunday night.
Pryor, who missed last week's loss to Washington with a concussion, connected with Rod Streater for 44 yards and Denarius Moore for two yards as he completed all eight passes he attempted for 105 yards.
Pryor, in his third year, became the first quarterback to throw for two touchdowns without an incomplete pass in the first quarter since Dallas' Tony Romo did it Nov. 13, 2011, against the Buffalo Bills.
Pryor struck quickly, connecting with Streater on a 44-yard scoring strike on the Raiders' first play from scrimmage.
Usama Young picked off Phillip Rivers' pass to set up the touchdown. Young was the only player even close to Rivers' long pass. He caught it like a wide receiver, turned around and raced 25 yards.
The second touchdown culminated a 13-play, 88-yard drive that took more than eight minutes off the clock.
Rivers' first three passes went for a minus-2, an interception and another badly overthrown pass.
The Chargers were held to 52 yards in total offense in the period.
Less than 24 hours earlier, the Coliseum was the scene of the Oakland Athletics' 1-0 walkoff win over the Detroit Tigers, which forced the Raiders to make the time change in the first place, making it the latest start in NFL history.
The conversation to football from baseball was completed about five hours before game time.
