Tell The Truth Tuesday: Raiders Talk Win Over New York Jets

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 beat the New York Jets 34-20 in convincing fashion Sunday afternoon at O.co Coliseum, to bring their record to 4-3.

The Silver and Black are now over .500 for the second time this season, but the players and coaches are not satisfied, so Tuesday they reflected and told the truth about their win over the Jets.

Cornerback David Amerson

"No game is ever perfect. There's always stuff you can clean up, whether it be a catch you gave up or technique errors, or eyes in the wrong place. It's always a lot of things for me, personally. There's always a lot of things I know I can get better on. There's definitely things I can look back on."

Defensive End Mario Edwards Jr.

"I think we're showing it more with our pads than actually going out there and talking. That's what we pride ourselves on as a defense, is to stop the run and don't give up big plays. If we can stop the run and make them one dimensional than that helps us as a defense."

Running Back Latavius Murray

"We need to continue to build on that. There's still things we leave out on the field and things that we can get better at, so that's the good thing about it, and we make sure that we keep working to be great… It's great what we have going on right now, but we want to continue to do what we're doing and head in that direction and win games."
