Josh McDaniels Apologizes To Raiders Fans After Another Crushing Loss

Raiders coach Josh McDaniels

The Las Vegas Raiders suffered their worst loss this season Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Following the 24-0 shutout on the road, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels spoke to the media following the game and issued an apology for his team's performance.

"McDaniels apologizes to Raiders fans," Vic Tafur of The Athletic tweeted Sunday.

McDaniels' said the following in his post-game media session:

"It's my responsibility. I have to do a much better job of getting ourselves ready to go here. We're better than that, and I apologize to Raider Nation for that performance and again I own that, that's my responsibility. We have to do much better in every phase of the game to be able to compete with a team like that who's well coached, has good players and they obviously came ready to play and did a much better job than we did. It starts with me, we're going to work hard and we're going to fix it"

The Raiders, now 2-5, fell to last place in the AFC West with Sunday's loss. 

Further, star wide receiver Davante Adams was held to just two scrimmage yards on two touches, a season-low. 

McDaniels, Adams and the Raiders will look to bounce back in Week 9 when Las Vegas takes on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
