"It’s a tough day, yes it is. It’s disappointing, for as hard as we’ve worked and played, to have a football game where we’ve got opportunities, and we let it go."
Marvin Lewis: "I’m pleased with our performance today. I thought we played well on offense. We were able to run the football, threw it efficiently and we were able to protect the quarterback."
"I just told the team in there, 'It was a disappointing loss.' Early in the game, we don’t convert the fourth-down play, and then we kind of got sideways there for a second."
"We obviously won some games at the end and today we lost one. It was a hard-fought game. We really fought our butts back into the game in the second half and we just weren’t able to finish it out."
"We played a complete football game today. We got off to a very good start offensively, moving the ball down the field and kept following up with good series on defense."
