Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams 

Do you walk away with this frustrated? It seems like the players are maybe walking away with the idea that you guys can hang and this was more of an encouraging effort even in the loss?

Davante Adams: “Yeah, I think it’s more of that. It’s definitely frustrating, but it’s to the point where we've got to keep our heads up in these situations. It’s a good football team -- the defense played great. We’ve got to do a better job of helping them out. They made a lot of stops against a very electric offense. Today was more of, I would say, our mistakes, beating ourselves up a little bit. We played good defense again, but we've just got to do a better job of making it easier on the team by taking care of our part and playing complementary football.”

The one you did connect on, the touchdown, was that a glimpse of the potential you could do? How nice was it to get back in the end zone?

Davante aAams: “Yes, it’s great. It’s been too long since I last got in, I don’t even know. But, yeah, that’s what we can do. We just got to do more of that.” 

What did you see from quarterback Aidan O’Connell? Is it kind of one of those growing pains game for a rookie?

Davante Adams: “Yeah, I mean, it was weird. You look at the one pick where, at the end, it was fourth down. Not the very end, but the one where he was getting tackled and threw it, that’s just him trying to make a play. It’s fourth down, and obviously there was not very much time left on the clock, and getting sacked, that’s a tough one. The first one is obviously going to be a situation you look at on tape and figure you can obviously make a better throw, and he knows that. But we’re not freaking out. He’s not freaking out. We've just got to stay together and find a way to convert better.” 

The Silver and Black will return home next week to celebrate Thanksgiving and take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs, on Sunday, November 26, at 4:25 p.m. EST/1:25 p.m. PST.
