Marvin Lewis on Andy Dalton’s second-quarter interception:
He’s counting on everybody to work right and match up better. We didn’t get there to make a play on the ball and they did. But I thought Andy did a good job. I thought he handled things pretty well. He didn’t have enough snaps in the first half so we brought him out for some more snaps in the third quarter and he was pretty efficient with it.
On the defense:
We’ve got to get to work and get our guys wind going to get ready for the opener. I thought it was a positive for the defense as they had to stay out there for a couple of long drives…Hopefully, those are good opportunities for our defensive plays to blows their pipes out pretty good.
Dalton on his interception:
They were in a two man look. We tried to get a shot down the middle. The guy made a good play on it. I could have been a little bit late, I need to watch it again on tape. But the guy made a good play. We moved the ball right down the field. We got all the looks that we wanted. We came so close. We picked up a big third down and ended up fumbling. We can’t do that if we’re going to win games.
You can look at all the bad, but there are still some good stuff mixed in there. We did move the ball well, but didn’t get any points to show from it. That’s what we have to figure out. We have to find ways to get points and score touchdowns. We got close down there, but didn’t get it done.
