McGloin Throws 3 TDs in NFL Starting Debut

The former Penn State walk-on threw for 192 yards and 3 touchdowns in his debut as an NFL starting quarterback.

HOUSTON, TX - Rookie Matt McGloin won the battle of undrafted free-agent quarterbacks on Sunday.

McGloin threw three touchdown passes in his first NFL start and the Oakland Raiders extended the Houston Texans' franchise-record skid to eight games with a 28-23 victory on Sunday in coach Gary Kubiak's return from a mini-stroke.

McGloin was 18 of 32 for 197 yards in place of an injured Terrelle Pryor. Houston's Case Keenum, also an undrafted free agent, was benched after Houston's offense stalled in the third quarter.
