Five Takeaways From Head Coach Jack Del Rio's Friday Press Conference

Following the Oakland Raiders "Fast Friday," practice Head Coach Jack Del Rio held his final press conference before the team travels to Denver to take on the Denver Broncos.

Here are the highlights from his press conference.

Sunday's game against the Broncos provides the Silver and Black a great opportunity.

"It's a good football team. They're on top of our division and it's a great opportunity for us to go in and play our best 60 minutes."

Head Coach Del Rio isn't concerned about the health of rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper.

"His foot is bothering him, put him on the report. He'll play."

He shared the keys to finding success on defense against the Broncos.

"That's a good component for playing good defense every week is being able to stop the run game, being able to limit the vertical throws, and be able to tackle well. If you do those things you could have a good day."

Head Coach Del Rio spoke about Michael Crabtree's contract extension.

"We're really excited that we got a really good player signed up long term. He's come in here every day and expressed himself; a great teammate, a great leader, been very productive for us so it's been excellent. We're excited that we got it done and I think it's just part of what we're building going forward."

The future is bright for the Raiders.

"There's a bright future on the horizon. We have a lot of blocks in place to have a really good football team going forward. We're working on becoming that team every week, looking to go out and express that this week and play really good football this week. There's a lot of energy in this building, a lot of positive energy that has been sustained throughout the year and we're going to keep bringing it this last month.",
