Lee Smith, on the notion that the Raiders lost prime draft real estate by beating the Steelers: “Like coach (Jon) Gruden said, he wouldn't tank a game of cards to his own mom, and I believe that. We all believe that. The guy's in the building at 4:30 (a.m.) every day. If he's tanking to get a No. 1 overall pick, or whatever the rumor is out there, then he'd sleep in, and come in and fart around and wait till next year, right? But the guy's a crazy man. He outworks everyone in the NFL; that's a fact. There's no arguing it…he wants to win every week, man. That got proven today. He's not tanking anything. He is a very competitive dude and he takes a lot of pride. Every day we go out there he feels like his signature's on it. He has told me, Sorry, on many occasions when we lose. The dude cares. He ain't here trying to lose games. That's ridiculous...let's not forget – coach Gruden has a lot of capital to work with in the next few years. We've got draft picks, we've got money, we've got a lot of things going in our favor. And if we can finish strong here and then transition and let him get a few new toys, it will be a lot of fun around here.”

Michael Badgley said he's made kicks from as far as 70 yards practicing on his own. Badgley said he was in Coach Lynn's ear saying, ‘Let's do this,' after the Bengals were called for defensive off sides at the end of the first half. "I think the kick still would have been good from 64, but that's just me," Badgley said about his franchise-best, 59-yarder.

Tahir Whitehead, on the notion that the Raiders may have lost by winning against the Steelers, when it comes to the draft. “People don't know what they're talking about; they need to shut up, plain and simple," Whitehead said. "At the end of the day, we're not going out here to lose football games. We work all week, you feel me? We put it all on the line and for anyone to say that, they don't understand or I don't think they have ever played sports and know what goes into this because that's a slap in the face to say, ‘Yeah, you need to just lay down and just lose the rest of the way so we can get a good draft pick.' That's stupid. Stupid.”

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin: ‘We've got to look at all aspects of what we're doing."
