SAN DIEGO — Terrelle Pryor found out what it's like to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

Pryor made his first career start, in place of injured Carson Palmer, in Oakland's 24-21 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. He threw his first two career touchdown passes and scored on a 3-yard run.

He also made some mistakes.

With Sebastian Janikowski warming up on the sideline for a possible field goal attempt in the final seconds of the first half, Pryor scrambled but didn't get out of bounds and the clock ran out.

Early in the third quarter, Pryor got too much air under a pass and was picked off in the end zone by Quentin Jammer.
