-- the final numbers finance game the Raiders win at 27 point four that's the big thing. And the Raiders now for the eighth but throughout the Steelers to six and six let's go back to Pittsburgh. Tom cable press conference after the win for the Raiders. So we'll just see what that entails here and X 24 hours. Tremendous effort by the Oakland Raiders you know played. Very well in some areas in Knoxville and others but enough to win and sixty minutes. We played the whole thing you know naturally tribute to our players. In those guys to get the children to -- keep battling. And it was nice to see this makes an explosive play -- it offensively but we were containing. The big play defensively until there in the fourth quarter. So we've still got -- to work on but we won today metro matters. And you know Qaeda and and we had to make some changes up front offensively and we were able to get enough protection together -- for Bruce because as I said. This morning it felt like we had a real matchup issue for them -- our receivers so we can protect and we have a shot at times and that certainly came true to protect him so. That's pretty cool about the kid may come home and and this folks in the stands and and play the -- -- lead this team unity and make huge plays big throws. In just a great job it. I really thought it was she didn't and as you said he he can move right move left in front window and receivers were busts certainly get open and it and it didn't militia of it. And then he made some throws not -- one cup football. Question I think -- start to feel that way I think that's a good feeling. Certainly. You know the honorable person. There are some completions and touchdowns again. To ski culture world won't be as a team that there. This happy today it's a big win for our guys to come on the road at Pittsburgh. You know they needed this game as much as we did and we're coming here and finish -- -- and -- Awesome artist's career but that's only -- we couldn't you know losing. Sampson Christian as the back -- center and -- and the election's swing tackle -- -- animals out. Chris had to go sooners and. It. -- we don't we had. Some real issue in terms of they got a guy hurt and we wanted to corner -- -- -- interception. But they had some issues and and I -- we're -- in rhythm and Ted -- those guys did a great job upstairs. The quarterback though and the receivers making plays in the line given us enough protection. But it was nice to be able to you know be a little bit more creative rather conditional cool you know put to the right to extra pass down field. It. He's very patient. 'cause I thought we can run it enough and it would be hard to run on this team but. We challenged ourselves this week what are your article on -- -- -- given -- many yards we we get 100 in the adjusted. You look at this. In the first quarter and about the first five minutes of the second quarter that's when her best for them to -- 2345234. And throw the ball a bit. And we -- the safeties down near the bucks were without will get a chance here did some plays and it worked for. -- Them this is more us and actually this is more us and you know against maybe lesser run defense you might have. More yards but I felt in his next job in running the ball today could you knew -- would be tough guy football and -- just gonna grind it out. And we did that before which was big that way it has looked -- a little bit but. It really come down to just hang in there battling for sixty minutes and the quarterback what should replace. -- -- -- And actually came to halftime you know we had a big kickoff return to start that game and then we have. Three big plays in the first half was so that's enough you know we have a fairly decent third quarter and in the fourth quarter kind of got us again you know so. Again look at this they were almost 40% on third down. That's what we need to do to be better offense and we were limiting the big plays for good maturity and unfortunately you know due to -- and fourth quarter but. We made enough -- One. I just knew if you got two tight ends and given a real forceful look that it was a run play. That you did you know he'd get a chance and the -- block what route and then he made a perfect throw -- the DB couldn't close on it couldn't get so. -- Why not we need to win. You know right now we want today. We're just trying to get better and finish strong and get this thing turnaround. Like excellent. Nolan has lost faith in anyone. Pitching is please know we're capable of being in more than what we've been but we have to prove that we after when doing so those are certainly a big part of the futures. It's stepped on right at the very end of practice Friday and it got. In tents which sore and last 24 hours so we gotta get back to find out. First it was was act and if you look they really came after for the qualifier and all that and catalyst to avoid there. -- sought just kind of held it long enough to to you know give Lewis a chance and maybe great through almost -- music from. Yeah. -- like that it's fun have an opportunity to go attack people in the red zone you know. We were in two minute mode but if you saw we really got out of it went into two tied in some empty set and some other things discuss. That's what this game is it down area try to attack people which haven't had many opportunities to these this year but. Then. This came in the two prior you know we've been better and -- don't take consumption. Didn't see much it's -- We didn't get ourselves down early -- through the big plays early in this won't happen late. As the game was kind of back and forth and we're battling we're growing our confidence we feel like Korean or anywhere and it and that's that's what you have to do in this -- You know a week ago in Dallas it's a close game Austin Hawkins is seventeen. It is what it is you know and again we gotta keep getting better we've got to play better in terms of them in the big plays and you know just get better football team but we want today hope you'll write about that that's. -- -- --
