Another week, another Tell the Truth Tuesday.
The Oakland Raiders pulled off the impressive come-from-behind win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, as they capped off the final drive of the game with a game-winning touchdown. While the final result was a 31-30 win, the Silver and Black still have plenty of work to do, and are just now reaching the halfway point of the season.
In Week 8, the Raiders travel to Buffalo to face running back LeSean McCoy and the Bills, but before that gets started, let's look at what the Raiders had to say regarding last week's win.
Head Coach Jack Del Rio:
"We talked a little bit about the why. Why we love to do what we do. Whatever it is, each guy find that little bit that you get excited about. I thought we had a good week leading up to the game. We got a good group of guys. We really do. We have a good group of men in that room. There's pride. I think there's belief. I think we just continue to work at it. We know we need to play better. We need to improve as we go throughout the year. It was awesome to get back on track and go out there and really have a fun night."
"We've got this east coast swing, have to go play two good teams that are playing well right now starting with Buffalo then go down to Miami, then come home and catch a little break and go play a home game in Mexico. Should be fun."
Linebacker NaVorro Bowman:
"It's still new, any time you're in the league for a while you kind of get that, 'I got it, I know it' feeling, and you go out there and you don't know it all, you don't have it. Every week is an important week, every game is an important game. I was just fortunate enough to play so many years, and be able to pick up on the playbook as fast as I did."

Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio:
"You just try to stay as present in the moment as possible, not looking behind, not looking forward, just trying to stay as steady, and rooted in my routine as possible, which was a bit of a challenge there at the end because it was such an unpredictable, almost never-before-seen chain of events… I kind of had to reset my routine three or four times, but again as a professional that's just what you've got to be able to do."
Running back DeAndré Washington
"I think at this level you've just got to be able to make adjustments and be able to adapt, and I think we did a pretty good job last year. We was 2-0 [on the road] and we're looking forward to doing that again [the next two weeks]."
