Tell The Truth Tuesday: Raiders Secondary Reflects On Last-Second Loss To Steelers

Head Coach Jack Del Rio has dubbed Tuesdays during the regular season as "Tell The Truth Tuesdays" – days where both players and coaches alike take responsibility, good or bad, for what occurred the previous Sunday.

The Oakland Raiders fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-35 on the road Sunday in Pittsburgh, dropping their record to 4-4.

With the defeat, the Silver and Black now find themselves back at .500, and Tuesday afternoon the players reflected back on their last-second, road loss at the hand of the Steelers and told the truth about their performance.

Cornerback David Amerson

"It was definitely a lot of us hurting ourselves. Like I said, I don't want to take anything away from him [Antonio Brown]; he's a great player, but we definitely gave him a lot, I know I did. For instance on deep balls, I'm expecting something else. Third and 6, I'm trying to jump inside routes and he's going vertical. They got the best of us that game."

"Different things in the run blocking and pass blocking. Everything overall as a team, we have things that we can improve on."

Cornerback Neiko Thorpe

"It's probably a little bit of both. When we broke down the film, a lot of it was self-inflicted wounds, big yards, big chunks. If we would have just [done] our jobs than it wouldn't have happened, but we learned from it and we're just looking forward to next week."
