OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Terrelle Pryor reeled off a 93-yard touchdown run on the game's first play from scrimmage Sunday and the Oakland Raiders went on to down Pittsburgh 21-18.

Pryor managed to compile just 87 passing yards on 10-of-19 efficiency with a pair of interceptions, but the Raiders' defense recorded five sacks and held off a late Steelers charge to help secure the victory.

Darren McFadden carried the ball 24 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns for Oakland (3-4).

Pittsburgh (2-5) picked up 276 total yards on offense as Ben Roethlisberger was picked off twice.

The Steelers signal-caller perked up in the final quarter, but by then it was too late to salvage a win. He finished finished 29-of-45 through the air for 275 yards and a TD pass.

Kicker Shaun Suisham missed two field goal tries from less than 35 yards out down the stretch.
