HOUSTON — Rookie Matt 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, an undrafted free agent, was 18 of 32 for 197 yards in place of an injured Terrelle Pryor.
Kubiak wasn't on the sidelines, instead coaching upstairs from the booth on doctor's orders two weeks after collapsing at halftime of Houston's game against Indianapolis.
Houston (2-8) had a chance to take the lead late. But Matt Schaub's pass to Andre Johnson on fourth down from the 8 was broken up in the end zone to give Oakland (4-6) the win.
