Matt McGloin will start again Sunday against the Chiefs, and Terrelle Pryor can expect to receive more playing time before the season ends, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Monday.

As for his own future, Allen had little to say.

Asked if he had been given any assurances that he'll be back next season, he said, "My job is to try to get this team better, get this team ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs. I'm not going to talk about speculation or anything like that. I'm going to worry about winning a football game this week."

During the Raiders' 37-27 loss to the Jets on Sunday, CBS analyst Rich Gannon - a former Raiders quarterback - criticized Allen for, among other things, his switch to Pryor at quarterback for just one series in the first quarter, his offensive unit's lack of urgency when it got the ball with less than nine minutes left trailing by three scores, and a timeout the Raiders had to burn after an incomplete pass with four minutes left.

The Raiders need to win one of their final three games - and they'll be big underdogs against the Chiefs and Broncos - to avoid a second straight 4-12 season. Only four teams have worse records this season than the Raiders' 4-9. On Sunday, they gave up the most points the Jets have scored since the opener of the 2012 season.

As Allen sees it, the Raiders have improved over last year and are much closer to respectability.
