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 snapped their three-game skid Sunday, beating the Tennessee Titans 24-21 at Nissan Stadium, improving their overall record to 5-6 and inserting themselves squarely back into the AFC playoff conversation.
Next on the agenda for the Silver and Black is a crucial home date with the division-rival Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday at O.co Coliseum, but before the team officially shifts their focus to the Chiefs, the players reflected about their win over the Titans.
Cornerback David Amerson
"The one deep ball that I broke up on the double move, I definitely could have kept my eyes on the receiver, just little stuff like that, not being in positions where I was behind them. There's a lot of things I can learn from the tape."
Guard Gabe Jackson
"It's not that we're off by a large margin. It's just like little things here and there that we can fix. When we're on, we're on, we just have to do that more often and keep being more consistent with it."
Defensive Tackle Dan Williams
"We did a good job of communicating this past week and just being accountable for each other, and we didn't [have] that many missed tackles this week. I think in the end, that's why we got that good result.
"We took it upon ourselves this week just to get better – try to get back to things that we knew we were capable of doing. We weren't communicating. We weren't making the right calls or weren't making the right checks and things. This week we did a real good job of communicating and we were able to be in the gaps that we were supposed to be in."
