After the Week 3 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Davante Adams told Sports Illustrated that he was “frustrated and angry.”

The Raiders receiver expanded on those thoughts Wednesday, saying its how the team translates those emotions that will dictate where they go next.

“This was one of our best practices as far as attention to detail, everybody being locked in on every minuscule part of what we’re doing on offense, defense, both sides of the ball, special teams, the kicking game,” Adams said. “Everything looked really sharp today. When you come in and you’re attentive and you acknowledge some of the things that you did negatively that impacted the game in a bad way, you’ve got to come back and make those changes, and I saw that type of turn was made today.”

In his first game with the Raiders, Adams was targetted 17 times. In the two games following, he was targeted 17 times. After saying he feels like he’s being double-teamed 95 percent of the time, Adams explained how he fights through double coverage.

“I’ve been getting played like this for the past three, four years now. Definitely over the past three it’s been all the same things. You’ve just got to adjust, and like we talked about before, it’s so early in the season to where a lot of the adjustments that people are making, it’s just not as loud as this because nobody else has to deal with the way we do,” Adams said. ” The good part is that I got a great group of guys that I work with from the quarterbacks to the coaches that are really open and receptive to different types of things that I see, and they know that I’ve dealt with it for a while, so they’ll trust my word on it. So just being able to adjust on the fly, because the way that the Titans played may not be the same thing that the Broncos are going to do. I’m sure there will be some similar ways to try to take me away, but the ways that they’ll do it will be different. So, the in-game adjustment will be different.”
