Matt McGloin to start for Raiders, Paul Posluszny out for Jaguars

The Oakland Raiders are making a switch at quarterback following a knee injury to Terrelle Pryor. Rookie Matt McGloin will make his first NFL start against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

McGloin was signed as an undrafted free agent from Penn State. He impressed in training camp, beating out veteran Matt Flynn after a preseason where he completed 57 percent of his passes, throwing Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys two touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without one of their top defenders against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Linebacker Paul Posluszny is recovering from a concussion sustained in Week 10, leaving the team vulnerable at the position.

More to watch: Texas’ Jackson Jeffcoat is back on the radar thanks to seven sacks in his last six games. As a pro, Jeffcoat may be used as a pass rush specialist, at least initially.

But that request would be a sweeping one, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board:

If NFL requests that betting is prohibited on Vegas Raiders at Nevada books, it would include all games, home or away, even the Super Bowl.

That seems like a scenario so outlandish that it couldn’t possibly happen, but David Purdum, who covers gambling for ESPN, isn’t willing to rule it out. Roger Goodell has pushed against sports gambling and political pressure could be applied that causes Nevada Gaming Control to grant such a request.
