Bengals at Cardinals halftime quotes 08/24/2014

MARVIN LEWIS
Head coach
On the first half ...
“We got a lot of work for our offense in backed-up situations because of the penalties we drew on special teams. That’s not exactly
what you want, but the offense perked up in the second quarter and moved the ball well. On defense, we had some negative plays, but
overall, the effort — and of course the point total — was what you are looking for.”

LEON HALL
Cornerback
On the first-team defense’s first-half performance ...
“It was OK. We had some mistakes, but we also had some big plays, and after the mistakes, we calmed down and didn’t let them
have much. We held them to a field goal on the short field.”

On whether it was meaningful to hold QB Carson Palmer, his former teammate, without a touchdown ...
“Yes, it means something to me, for emotional reasons I guess. But really, I’d feel almost the same way regardless who we were
playing. This was what they call the dress rehearsal game, where you get to play a lot of snaps, and you want to show up well. I feel
like, at least a little bit, this builds some momentum for us for Baltimore.”
