Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis has revealed that he will deal with defensive coordinator Jason Tarver's sideline actions against the Pittsburgh Steelers "in-house".

Tarver was pictured flipping a middle finger towards the match officials on a number of occasions after they penalised cornerback Mike Jenkins for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell.

The 39-year-old has since apologised for his actions, but Davis confirmed that the matter would still be dealt with internally.

"It was just an emotional outburst by a coach in the heat of the game. We don't condone those actions and we'll handle it in-house," Davis told ESPN.

The Raiders went on to win the match 21-18 but remain bottom of the AFC West with a 3-4 record.
